  • Jake Locker or Ryan Mallett in 2011

    The Rams need to take care of business, pick Suh this year and start building a dominating defense. That said I believe next season we will be picking again in the top five. If so, who would you take as your future franchise QB? Jake Locker or Ryan Mallett and why?

    So we're going to be faceless for the future another whole season? Sounds smart.

      Not taking a franchise QB just does not seem like a smart idea. Our defense isn't THAT bad, they can keep us in the game for 3 quarters or so..then they wear out, but that's because our Offense isn't on the field very long. In this draft we need to load up on the Offensive side of the ball.

        I'm not willing to presume that the Rams will again be in the Top 5 selections next year.

          Ok then, perhaps JRF was being overly optimistic, how about top 3?

            If we go as some have suggested a ball pounding defensive team then a QB could wait I guess, but FA needs to be where we get a QB IMO. There are teams that compete without a franchise QB and is the team ready to get one at this point? Especially when there isnt a TOP NOTCH QB ready to be takin 1rst OA.

            Jake Locker 2011, lets get the team ready for him.

              Smart would be taking a guy you can build a defense around rather then hopeing your new face of the future pans out...

                Who's defense were you watching this year? We have a couple guys on defense that look promising but to say the whole D wasn't that bad, I don't think I would go that far...

                    Your still taking a risk with Suh...you still have to HOPE that he becomes a player you can build around. Just because he's dominant in college FB does NOT mean he will be that dominant in NFL. Could he be? Yes, but lets wait till he at least plays a down in the NFL before we say that we're going to build our Defense around him because for all we know, he could end up being a bust too.

                      I'm pretty sure we're building our defense around Chris Long and James Laurinatiis.

                      Hoping the new face of the future pans out? Are you assuming Suh pans out? I'd take Gerald McCoy over Suh.

                        Watching Locker as a junior, I thought he had it all. He's not completely polished, but he should be after his senior year. Good size, strong, tough, skilled, athletic and smart, I would take him in a heartbeat if he was available in 2011. Well worth the wait IMO.

                          I agree. Depending on our offseason moves, and if we can stay healthy next year...we have a decent chance to win a number of games, and it may be enough to move us out of the Top 5.

                            BUT he's not a "winner" *rolls eyes*. Same reason people don't want Clausen, supposably.

                              Wow I can see you are a Clausen guy and thats OK. Next year you will be a Locker or Mallett guy. But you add Suh to Long and Laurinatiis and now you have something. As far as the last statement Mcoy over Suh its just plain assanine...

                                The supposed #1 pick in next years draft went 4-20 and 71 yards against Nebraska.

                                On first and second downs - he put up an O-fer, unable to complete a single pass.

                                What about the Rams moving up to #1?
                                by Nick_Weasel
                                I haven't seen anything like this being discussed, but I think it's a reasonable option. It seems that Miami is interested in both Chris Long and Matt Ryan. If the phins are having trouble deciding which player to build their franchise around, why not trade down to #2 where they can grab Matt Ryan AND have the added benefit of getting one of the guys they wanted at the #2 rate instead of the #1 rate? Add whatever they'd get from the Rams to move down (our 3rd rounder for their 4th? our 4th rounder?) and it seems a great move by Miami - one of the guys they wanted anyway, cheaper than they expected, and an additional draft pick to boot.

                                From the Rams perspective, we get the guy we want instead of having to select somebody who doesn't fill an immediate need or reaching to grab somebody who shouldn't even be a top 5 pick. The major drawback from the Rams perspective would be that we'd have to pay more at the #1 spot than the #2 spot, but knowledge of this would also allow the Rams to move up more cheaply than the "draft value chart" suggests.

                                I think to free up money to make this move, Little might have to be cut. But if we know in advance we can grab C. Long, this shouldn't be too concerning anyway.


                                Option #2 - trade down to #5 (KC) and grab Gholston there. If Miami grabs Long, KC is probably terrified that both guys they'd really want (Jake Long and Matt Ryan) are gone by #5 (Long to us, Ryan to ATL). If Long and Ryan are gone at #5, who is KC going to take? Their biggest needs are all across the offensive line, and there's no offensive lineman other than Long that you can justify taking at #5. They could use a WR, but again absolutely no elite WR in the draft. Same with CB, and that's not really an immediate need for them. If Long and Ryan are gone, the value on the board is almost exactly opposite of everything they need. This would be an awful spot for the Chiefs.

                                Just throwing these out there. They seem pretty reasonable though if you ask me.

                                Rams, Ryan Not Sure About Next Season

                                Rams, Ryan not sure about next season

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                Wednesday, February 23, 2011

                                Sidetracked by recurring migraines last season, defensive tackle Clifton Ryan is eager to resume his NFL career. Whether he continues it as a Ram seems uncertain, maybe even unlikely, as the league begins gathering in Indianapolis this week for the NFL scouting combine.

                                "The migraines have subsided," Ryan said Tuesday. "As far as me being a Ram, I don't make those decisions. I'm a ballplayer; a pretty decent one when healthy. I'm going to let my agent handle the business side. My job is focusing on being the best football player I can be in 2011."

                                Ryan, 27, was a fifth-round draft pick by the Rams out of Michigan State in 2007. He was a rotation player as a rookie behind Adam Carriker and La'Roi Glover but stepped into a starter's role in '08 and '09, establishing himself as a solid run defender with the potential to develop into something more.

                                But last summer, Gary Gibson earned the starting job ahead of Ryan coming out of training camp. Ryan never got the chance to earn back the job because of the migraines, which surfaced after the season opener against Arizona.

                                Ryan didn't play again in 2010 and was placed on the injured reserve list Oct. 27. Ryan underwent a variety of tests to determine the cause of the migraines and if there was anything more there. Included was a visit with noted concussion and neurological expert Dr. Joseph Maroon of Pittsburgh.

                                "He's doing fine," Ryan's agent, Tom Condon, said Tuesday. "He's been working out at Michigan State and hasn't had any recurring problems with his head."

                                As for any Rams interest in re-signing Ryan, Condon declined to comment except to say that it was very quiet throughout the league as teams and players wait out the current labor impasse.

                                The signals at Rams Park have been mixed, at best, in terms of retaining Ryan. During a Rams chat "guest stint" Tuesday on STLtoday.com, general manager Billy Devaney said only, "Cliff's an unrestricted free agent, so we'll have to see."

                                Fred Robbins and Gibson started 16 games apiece last season at the Rams' two defensive tackle spots. Robbins became an instant fixture on defense and is still under contract. Gibson is scheduled for unrestricted free agency, and according to league sources, the Rams have expressed interest in retaining him. Jermelle Cudjo and Darell Scott, who had backup roles in 2010, are both under contract for 2011.

                                Although the draft appears stronger at defensive end, there are some intriguing defensive tackle prospects including University of Illinois DT Corey Liuget, who could be in play for the Rams in the first round at No. 14 overall.

                                When asked Tuesday if he wanted to return to the Rams, Ryan was noncommittal....
