  • Rams tell Rob Gronkowski they fully intend to draft a TE

    Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski revealed Thursday that the Rams informed him in interviews that they fully intend to draft a tight end.

    Gronkowski also dismissed a prior report that he'd work out at U of A's March 12 Pro Day. He's targeting the 26th of next month. Gronkowski didn't resume running until 2-3 weeks ago, which is a concern considering he had back surgery some five months ago. He's still easily the draft's No. 2 tight end.
    This comes from a report by Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter

    While its not unexpected that they would want to draft a TE, i do feel its too early to say that when we havent even gone through Free Agency where guys like Ben Watson and maybe Tony Scheffler can be had.

    I wouldn't doubt it. Who is to say that the TE will be an earlier round? Hell we could pick a TE with Atlanta's seventh rounder, it would still be considered "drafting a tight end"

      The days of misinformation are upon us. Only believe half of what you hear.

        Thats true actually. Even if they were to pick up a starting TE in free agency, they could well draft a younger guy to groom behind him.

        My only issue with that is that we have a couple of decent depth guys in Fells and Bajema, so if we do grab a free agent FA, and with the many holes on this team, drafting another TE could almost be a luxury.

        If they do intend to draft a TE, that could mean the team has ruled out going after any of the Free Agent TEs

          Fairly Obvious, but Rams fully intend to draft a TE

          ----------------------------------

          It was pretty obvious that we needed to target a tight end in the draft, but this just seems to confirm it. I wonder where we're thinking of selecting one...

          Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma - a second round prospect?
          by tomahawk247
          Its obvious to everyone that an upgrade at the Tight End position is needed. McMichael isnt expected to be back as he is a unrestricted free agent, and Daniel Fells and Billy Bajema are depth guys at best. So the Rams need a new started at TE.

          Gresham is still thought to be the number 1 TE in the draft despite missing his last season through a knee injury. Obviously his combine showings will be important, but if he shows that the knee injury hasnt hindered his ability then he could very well be worth consideration.

          If Gresham is there at the top of round 2 then the Rams have to be looking his way. However, if the Rams pick up a starting TE in free agency like Tony Scheffler or Ben Watson, its unlikely they will pick Gresham, instead focusing on one of the many other positions that the team could use an upgrade at.

          But whoever is starting at QB for the Rams in 2010 would benefit from having a good, young receiving talent at the TE spot. Be it Bulger, a free agent addition, or a rookie QB.

          Rams re-signed TE Daniel Fells
          by tomahawk247
          As per a Twitter post by Bernie Miklasz which says:
          Post-Dispatch Rams beatwriter Jim Thomas reports that TE Daniel Fells has re-signed with the Rams; more details from JT later.

          Rotoworld report:
          Rams re-signed TE Daniel Fells
          The Rams plan to draft a tight end (per Arizona's Rob Gronkowski), but Fells currently tops the depth chart after hauling in 21 balls for 273 yards and three touchdowns last year. St. Louis won't have a fantasy-caliber TE in 2010.

          I think we had to keep him as he is good depth at the TE position. No news on contract details yet. Could be another case, like they want to do with Atogwe, where the Rams let another team set the market value before ponying up the cash

          possible TE?
          by MIZZOU45
          Does anyone think that we might draft a more of a reciever TE, to help out with short yardage?

          like a jared cook or a chase coffman

          Kyle Rudolph TE
          by Bing69
          I was reading an interesting article saying how if Kyle Rudoplh was sitting there in the 2nd round when the Rams pick they should take him. He has the elite skills you look for in that position, and some believe he is a better receiving target than Gresham and Pettigrew taken in previous years. With Illinois Mike injury concern unclear (he may or may not be able to complete a full season), Onobun still raw and developing, Bajema just a solid team player, and Fells inconsistency (we could also loose him in FA) it might not be such a bad idea.

          I know there are other ways to go with this pick, but he might just be the BPA at that stage. We have managed to get 2 first round talents in the 2nd the last 2 years (J-Lau and Saffold) and it would certainly make the offense more threatening. Having Rudoplh, Big mike, Bajema / Onobun would be a nice trio. Add to the fact if we get Rice , or V-Jax, or Julio Jones our offense would be looking pretty sweet.

          I personally have no problem with the pick if it happens, but we dont know whos coming and going in FA.

          Whats the general thought on Rudoplh from you guys??
