  • Legarrette Blount-Late Round Flyer?

    Mr Blount, Oregon's big bruising back was a second round talent with the ability to crack the first had it not been for that infamous Boise State accident that saw him knocking the grin off some trash talking lineman.

    With Blount's supposed character issues and in light of the incident, some guys have him falling all the way to the seventh round....and *gasp* perhaps even undrafted!

    So...the question is, do you take him with one of your sixth or seventh round picks?

    I say hell mother******* yes. how many seventh round picks are guys that probably should have went undrafted and don't contribute in a big way, if at all.

    With a talent like that I would take a chance on his character issues. His coaches have said Blount has been trying to repair his image and has been doing the right things to do so.

    I can think of worse things to do with a seventh round pick then letting a big back with a nasty attitude pound opposing defenses while Jackson rest his legs for another onslaught....

    Let's hope the whiners trash talk while HE's on the field....

    GET HERE NAO APRIL DAMN YOU!

    He wont fall below the 3rd, I will pretty much guarantee that. He will answer the Interview questions the right way at the combine, and all will be forgiven. No way he goes undrafted.

      Totally agree with you 01d. I don't see him slipping past the fourth round..let alone going undrafted.

        Definitely a knucklehead if there was one in the draft.

        Attitude problems abound.

        Even if he was around, which I doubt he would be. Devaney has already said no.

          He's got a lot of bright football people that have helped him get back on track like Jon Gruden and Tony Dungy. If they believe in the guy enough to help him out, I'm sure that resonates with other NFL types. If he falls to us in say the 4th round and we haven't addressed that area of need yet, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

            Just because they want to believe in him doesn't mean he will change. Anybody that is as big as he is, has the speed and power that he does, is clearly talented enough to play at the next level. Guys want to believe in guys like him but if he can't get it through his head and be the right kind of team player that is required out of him at the next level, no one can fix that.

            Just in the Senior Bowl, I saw him physical slap LeFevour's hand down after he corrected him on where he was to line up by pointing to his left side. As if to tell him don't tell me what to do. I don't know about you but that's not the kind of guy I would want to play with and that's not the kind of guy Devaney is going to bring into this organization.

              First round talent?
              by rampower
              Some recent topics on here got me thinking. What dictates a first round talent. If the pool of talent is small, the first round talent is thinner, but people will proclaim some guys a first round talent, some guys not?


              It's almost like the Mythical Super Bowl winning QB, some guys that have won them aren't that good, some that haven't are awesome. I understand that When people use the phrase Super Bowl winning quarterback, they by and large are saying one of those 4 or 5 QB's that come along every decade who always win in the clutch and play better under pressure, always finding a way to win.


              Anyways back on Topic,

              What makes a player a 'first round talent'

              RB Options, by Round
              by AvengerRam_old
              The Rams need to upgrade the No. 2 back position behind Steven Jackson. Unfortunately, this is not the deepest crop at the position.

              Here are the RBs I'd consider taking, by round.

              Round 1

              Mark Ingram, Alabama
              Ingram is the only RB I give a clear first round grade. I would not take him with the 14th pick, but he could be an option if the Rams trade down in the round.

              Round 2

              Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech
              Williams could go in the first round, but I have him rated as a second round pick. If he were to last until the Rams second round pick, I'd strongly consider him.

              Round 3

              DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
              Murray may never be workhorse back, but he was the best receiving RB in college football (71 receptions) last year. That could be a very good asset in Josh McDaniels' offense.

              Jordan Todman, UConn
              I am a big fan of Todman and think he could be a bit of a sleeper in the draft. He's not the biggest back, but he carried a heavy load at UConn. He also has the speed to be a game-breaker.

              Jaquizz Rodgers, Oregon State
              Rodgers has a high-profile, and might not last this long. If he does, he'd be a nice fit for the Rams and a good value in Round 3.

              Round 4

              Dione Lewis, Pittsburgh
              Lewis is not a big back, but he's demonstated the ability to carry a big load (nearly 600 touches in the last two years). I think he could out-play his draft position.

              Derrick Locke, Kentucky
              I like Lock's speed and receiving ability. He would not be a future replacement for Jackson in all likelihood, but could be a great complimentary back.

              Rounds 5-7

              John Clay, Wisconsin
              Clay would not be a change-of-pace back. Rather, he is a back who will remind many of Brandon Jacobs. It will be interesting to see his 40 time, as that will likely determine where he is taken.

              Donald Buckram, UTEP
              Buckram had nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage in his Junior year before being slowed by injuries in his Senior year. Another potential sleeper pick.

              "First Rounder" Most Likely To Drop Out Of The First Round
              by AvengerRam_old
              This could be an important issue for the Rams, as they have the second pick in Round 2 as well. There are always players who, somewhat unexpectedly, drop out of the first round.
