  • B-Dub's Mock Off-Season 2.0

    In my first mock off-season i made a huge mistake. I did not have a QB of the future and thought we can rely on Bulger for one more year and go for a QB in 2011 I was wrong.

    Players Leaving:

    Alex Barron- He had his shot at RT and LT and failed to be consistent at both and his penalties just killed so many drives. And he had some penalties when the Rams were gaining momentum. However with the right coaching he may be successful elsewhere.

    Jon Wade- I dont think we will offer him a contending contract. He was our starter at CB and it was his spot to lose. First he lost it to Fletcher then he lost it Quincy Butler nuff said.

    Marc Bulger- He has too much wear and tear and just cannot throw it deep however he is still pretty accurate. We save around 4 mill doing this move.

    Randy McMicheal- no explanation needed.



    Rams that will be re-signed:
    Craig Dahl
    Dave Vabora
    Larry Grant
    Billy Bajema
    James Hall

    Cliff Ryan- He did a good job this year and we all know he deserves to be re-signed.

    OJ Atogwe- He will sign a 2-3 year deal or be franchised

    Leonard Little- He is our best pass rusher. He is a veteran. Either he retires or he plays as a Ram.

    Free Agency
    TE Tony Sheffler- many mocks have him. pass catching TE.
    SLB Chris Gocong- He can play SLB. He is a solid player and can help JL.
    RT Ryan Cook- Decent Tackle he can start for us.

    Jason Cambell- This one is not going to be easy. I am aware of the 2 previous signings but we have money. I think it will come down to Seattle or us for Cambell. Seattle has Hous and John Carlson but we have Steven Jackson. Look at what he did in a WCO in washington 3,618 yards. His overall passer rating is decent 86.4. But his TD-INT ratio sux 20-15. But look at the redskins best rusher last year Clint Portis 124 att and under 500 yards. He was basically forced to pass.

    Here's the bottom line we beat out Seattle by overpaying for him my guess is 3-4 years 25-32 mil. A hefty price but a young QB in his prime.

    2010 Draft

    ROund 1:
    DT Ndamukong Suh
    Analysis: not needed

    Round 2:
    RB Jahvid Best
    Analysis: We get Cambell and what do we do? Give him more targets. Steven Jackson had so many rushing attempts and slowed down at the end so what do we do? We give him a playmaking back that can hit home runs. He can catch and he can run fast.

    Round 3:
    OG Mike Johnson
    Analysis: A bit high for him but we need a guard and here is our guy. He can pass protect and run block.

    Round 4:
    QB Jevan Snead
    Analysis: I am pretty sure this is not going to be a popular pick. But Snead has the tools he just needs to fix some mechanical problems. Maybe a little high for him. We can get him and see what he can do.

    Round 5:
    CB Chris Cook
    Analysis: Tall 6-2 corner but has the speed to keep with the Wide receivers.

    Round 5:
    OLB Kavell Conner
    Analysis: solid LB.

    We Address DE with the last few picks.

      Good mock, liked the:

      Gocong signing
      Scheffler signing
      Suh pick
      Johnson pick
      Conner pick


      I'm questioning the Snead pick...I prefer LeFevour and Canfield over him. Even Bill Stull from Pittsburgh.

      I don't really know much about Ryan Cook.

      So is Chris Cook going to be our 5th corner or something?

        Some of this stuff looks pretty decent. I agree that getting a backup RB should be a fairly high priority. But I don't know if I love the Ryan Cook signing. If I'm not mistaken he was the weak link on the Vikings line and the reason they felt it necessary to take Phil Loadholt in the second round last year. And if your going to include James Hall on the depth chart, then make sure you include him in the "resign" section because he is a UFA.

          I agree with you on the Snead part. The more i think about it the more i am wondering why i picked snead because he will not be be good in a WCO at all. He does not have timing nor does he make good/quick decisions. At this point i want to change the pick. But not to a QB. DE Austin Lane i had him in my 1st mock draft.

          Ryan Cook was the Starting Right Tackle for the Vikings. In 2007 he became the the full time starter at RT and blocked for the #1 rushing offence. He got replaced this year by Phil Loadholt. Cook is not great but he is not bad. He can get a push in the run game. He needs to work on pass protection thou. he is big and physical 6-6 around 330 pounds.

          Yes Chis Cook will be buried in the depth charts to start. I dont like it when people give mid-late round rookies good position on the depth charts. Cook has to earn his spot!

            Re: B-Dub's Mock Off-Season 2.0

            Id really love to see us get Lefevour in the third. Great Accuracy for the west coast offense. Great mobility, a bit faster than Boller.

              Yea, Snead would be a better fit on some team like the Broncos, Raiders, Redskins, etc.


              Would Ryan Cook be a better football player than a young guy we draft in rounds 3-5? For example, Kyle Calloway, Gabe Carimi, Ciron Black, etc.

                Well honestly he is not up to Ciron Black but i think he can block just as well as Calloway or Carimi.

                Let me put it this way if he was in this draft he would be a late 3rd or early 4th. But unlike the rookies Cook has starting experience in the NFL and has run block for really good rushing teams (AP and Chester Taylor).

                  B-Dub's Mock Off-Season 3.0 (It's Different)
                  by BarronWade
                  Players Leaving:

                  Alex Barron- He had his shot at RT and LT and failed to be consistent at both and his penalties just killed so many drives. And he had some penalties when the Rams were gaining momentum. However with the right coaching he may be successful elsewhere.

                  Jon Wade- I dont think we will offer him a contending contract. He was our starter at CB and it was his spot to lose. First he lost it to Fletcher then he lost it Quincy Butler nuff said.

                  Leonard Little- Yes he is loved by clanram but it's time to move on. Little will be missed

                  Randy McMicheal- no explanation needed

                  Kyle Boller- He wasnt awful but he wasnt decent.

                  James Hall- Like Little we must move on and get a younger line.



                  Rams that will be re-signed:
                  Craig Dahl
                  Dave Vabora
                  Larry Grant
                  Billy Bajema


                  Cliff Ryan
                  - He did a good job this year and we all know he deserves to be re-signed.

                  OJ Atogwe- He will sign a 2-3 year deal or be franchised

                  Contract Changed:
                  Marc Bulger sheds between 2-3 mill from his contract for 2010. If we release him then we save 4 mill but have a void at an experience QB. So we save about 2.5 mill and keep him.



                  Free Agency

                  SLB Chris Gocong- He can play SLB. He is a solid player good tackler and can help JL.

                  RT Ryan Cook
                  - Decent Tackle he can start for us.

                  DE Darryl Tapp- We take him away from Seattle give him a good contract for 3 years.

                  RB Jerious Norwood- He struggled last year but i think we should give him a 1 year deal and let him compete for the #2 spot.

                  2010 Draft

                  ROund 1:
                  Current Pick: DT Ndamukong Suh
                  Previous Pick: DT Ndamukong Suh
                  Analysis: I wanted to make this different but im not an idiot.

                  Round 2:
                  Current Pick: QB Dan Lefevour
                  Previous Pick: RB Jahvid Best
                  Analysis: I am already anticipating heat for this pick because it "will not be good draft value." But before the senior bowl Lefevour was a 3rd round projection and his biggest question mark was being under center. He was pretty comfortable if you ask me. ANd if you watched him it looks like he has been very well coached and he throws a very catchable foot ball. By the time the draft comes around Lefevour will be projected as a mid 2nd rounder but if we want him we have to reach. So bring on the heat about this pick.

                  Round 3:
                  Current Pick: TE Jimmy Graham
                  Previous Pick: OG Mike Johnson
                  Analysis: It's about time that me make a statement about our Offense. We want to get bigger more physical well here is out guy. 6-8 260 pounds. Freakish athlete. Still raw so there is tons he can learn. It's obvious we need a playmaker and a red-zone threat and this is the guy. He is a bloomer/ bust candidate. He does drop the ball...

                  Sakl18's Mock Offseason
                  by sakl18
                  Here is my mock offseason. Let me know what you think, and don't be afraid to tear me apart.


                  Re-sign
                  • Anyone who isn't in the release column
                  Release
                  • Leonard Little - If he is willing to stay for cheap, then we re-sign him. If not, see ya.
                  • Marc Bulger - His days as a Ram are over, it's time to move on.
                  • Randy McMichael - No longer the tight end he once was.
                  • Alex Barron - His drive killing penalty spree comes to an end.
                  • Kyle Boller - Showed us just why he's no longer a Raven.
                  Free Agent Signings
                  • Jason Campbell, QB - Take a chance on him. If all else fails, he's a stop-gap QB.
                  • Tony Scheffler, TE - A good blocking and receiving TE.
                  • David Baas, OG - A powerful run blocker who can open up holes at the RG position.
                  • Leon Washington, RB - A good relief and change of pace back for Steven Jackson.
                  • Ray Edwards, LE - Played very well in Minnesota, albeit with Allen and the Williams'.
                  Draft Picks
                  • 1) Ndamukong Suh*, DT - Self explanatory.
                  • 2) Sean Weatherspoon, WLB - A fast, sure tackling linebacker who would provide a major upgrade over Paris Lenon.
                  • 3) Jared Veldheer, OT - A monstrous tackle with surprising agility who projects as a solid RT.
                  • 4) Dan LeFevour, QB - Has a good arm and great mobility.
                  2010 Depth Chart


                  QB - Jason Campbell, Keith Null, Dan LeFevour

                  DT - Ndamukong Suh, Cliffton Ryan, Adam Carriker, LaJaun Ramsey, Darrell Scott

                  *Some of you may have seen me arguing for taking Clausen first overall, however, that is only if we don't sign a QB in free agency.

                  My Mock Offseason
                  by rams_man13
                  Let me know what you think, if this is possible, etc.

                  Resign:

                  - James Hall, DE (cheap, good rotational guy)
                  - Gary Gibson, DT (good depth, cheap)
                  - Clifton Ryan, DT (good DT, developing)
                  - OJ Atogwe, FS (ballhawk in the secondary, one of our better D players)
                  - Mark Setterstrom, OG (Decent backup on the OL)
                  - Daniel Fells, TE (showed some flashes, looks like a good back-up)

                  Cut:
                  - Alex Barron, LT (bust, will want LT money, hurts the team with drive killing mental mistakes)
                  - Leonard Little, DE (older, will want starting DE money, time to move on)
                  - Randy McMichael, TE (not a good TE anymore)
                  - Marc Bulger, QB (he's old, expensive and can't be relied on anymore)

                  Free Agents:
                  - Leon Washington, RB (good change of pace back, explosive, good in the return game, will come cheeper because of injury)
                  - Tony Scheffler, TE (balanced TE who has excellent hands and decent blocking skills, feud with McDaniels will make him available from the Broncos)
                  - Chad Pennington, QB (he's a one year stop gap to groom whatever QB we draft in the later rounds this year, he'll be cheap coming off surgery and should still have enough of a noodle arm to work in our west coast offense)
                  - David Baas, OG (Big, run blocking RG to replace Richie)
                  - Adam Terry, OT (Mammoth OT who will provide good depth/spot starting)
                  - Thomas Howard, OLB (Great cover LB, will be dropped by the Raiders as a scapegoat for their struggles in stopping the run)
                  - Derrick Johnson, MLB (I'm suggesting we move him to OLB where he dominated in college, I believe he's being misused right now)
                  - Richard Marshall, CB (physical corner who supports the run, a traditional Spags guy)

                  Draft:

                  1.01- Ndamukong Suh, DT (Beast, BPA, Position of Need)
                  2.01- Demaryius Thomas, WR (Ideal size, good speed and hands, WAS the Georgia Tech passing game)
                  3.01- Greg Hardy, DE (Good size and speed, a solid pass rusher to work opposite Chris Long)
                  4.01- Ciron Black, OT (Drops because he's not projected as a LT despite playing it all through college, dominant run blocker and instant RT starter)
                  5.01- Dan LeFevour, QB (He's got a good chance to succeed at a cheap price, throw him in there and see if he can make something happen, if not, Jake Locker next year)

                  2010 St. Louis Rams Depth Chart:

                  QB- Chad Pennington, Dan LeFevour, Keith Null
                  RB- Steven Jackson, Leon Washington, Chris Ogbonnaya
                  FB- Mike Karney
                  WR- Laurent Robinson, Donnie Avery, Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Gibson, Danny Amendola
                  TE- Tony Scheffler, Daniel Fells, Billy Bajema
                  LT- Jason Smith, Adam Terry, Adam Goldburg
                  LB- Jacob Bell, Mark Setterstrom, Roger Allen III
                  C- Jason Brown, Mark Setterstrom
                  RG- David Baas, John Greco, Mark Setterstrom
                  RT- Ciron Black,...

                  by sakl18
                  Release/Let Walk
                  • Alex Barron, LT - His spree of drive killing penalties comes to an end.
                  • Kyle Boller, QB - Showed us just why he's no longer a Raven.
                  • Randy McMichael, TE - Hasn't played at the level he did in Miami.
                  • Leonard Little, LE - If he's willing to stay for a small contract he gets re-signed, otherwise he goes.
                  • Marc Bulger, QB - His days as a Ram are over, as both parties need a fresh start.
                  • Samkon Gado, RB - Really struggled this season and an upgrade is needed.
                  • Kenneth Darby, RB - Another backup RB who was innefective.

                  Resign
                  • Anyone who isn't being let loose.

                  Free Agents
                  • Jason Campbell, QB, Washington - He still has potential and needs a fresh start. If all else fails, he's a stop gap QB.
                  • Ray Edwards, LE, Minnesota - A solid DE who would immediately help with our pass rush woes.
                  • Jerious Norwood, RB, Atlanta - A speed back who would be a great change of pace for Jackson, and would also lessen his work load.

                  Re-Signings

                  FS OJ Atogwe
                  NT Clifton Ryan
                  OL Mark Setterstrom

                  DE Leonard Little*
                  DE C.J. Ah You

                  Cuts

                  OT Alex Barron
                  TE Randy McMichael
                  QB Marc Bulger

                  DT Gary Gibson
                  WR Ruvell Martin

                  DE James Hall
                  LB Paris Lenon
                  DE Victor Adeyanju

                  Free Agency

                  QB Chad Pennington
                  - Notes: A veteran QB who will be available due to Chad Henne's success in South Beach. Chad will be a great bridge QB for the Rams and could provide a similar spark/impact on offense as he did for Miami in '08.

                  RB Leon Washington
                  - Notes: With the emergence of rookie Shonn Greene, there is a crowded backfield with only so many carries to go around. Leon would be a great change of pace back for Steven who possesses a similar talent in the receiving game making him more dangerous.

                  OT Tyson Clabo
                  - Notes: With the departure of Alex Barron and Jason Smith shifting over to the left side, there is a need for a RT. Tyson Clabo has done a great job keeping Matt Ryan off his back in Atlanta and would help solidify our line.

                  DE Ray Edwards
                  - Notes: Although he plays with what might be the best supporting cast in the NFL (Jared Allen, Pat & Kevin Williams), Ray Edwards is a young player who has gotten better with each passing season. He would help add to the young nucleus that Devaney is trying to build on as well as give Spags a new toy to play with.

                  LB Omar Gaither
                  - Notes: He was with Spags for one season in Philadelphia, but he possesses the versatility to play different linebacker positions. Besides Laurinaitis, our LB core has a lot of issues and Gaither will be a solid addition.

                  LB Danny Clark
                  - Notes: A jack-of-all-trades who can play all three linebacker spots, he essentially replaces Paris Lenon as the veteran of this group but more importantly provides depth at each position.

                  CB Richard Marshall
                  - Notes: A tough, physical corner who fits the mold of what Spags wants. Marshall is very young and entering the prime of his career which is exactly what the Rams want and he also fills a position of need.

                  NFL Draft

                  Round 1: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
                  - Notes: Taking a QB first overall would be a slam dunk here if there was a franchise type available, alas, the Rams don't exactly have the best luck. However, they are blessed to find one of the best defensive prospects of the decade. Suh not only addresses an area of need, but he makes the rest of the defense better and could help catapult Chris Long into double-digit sacks in 2010.

                  Round 2: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma.
                  - Notes: Playmakers, playmakers, playmakers. Is that what you want Billy? Look no further than...
