  • Would you draft DE Carlos Dunlap with first pick in second round?

    Would you fellow Ram fans want Rams to draft DE C. Dunlap with the first pick in the second round?

    I think the Rams need a DE oppisite of DE Chris Long more than a DT.

    If he falls I hope they pull the plug on him. The way Spags motivates players I don't think he will be a slacker. If he is a slacker like DE J. Peppers we did a good job by drafting him.

    If Dunlap fell to the #33 pick I would snatch him up in a heartbeat.

      I agree with you that a DE is more important to the Rams than a DT. But having said that, it depends on who else is available. There are multiple DEs in this draft that would be possible round 2 choices.

        Definitely would be in the conversation, but Long and Dunlap are both kinda LE's

            i`d give him consideration but theres reasons why his stock is slipping..it would depend on who is still available and not just at DE..tho i agree with DE being a bigger need than DT and he could potentially be the guy who allows Long to switch over to LDE.

            Edit: i forgot about the DUI charge...1 year probabtion over his/potentially our heads... not the type i would want to give millions to in the hope that he wises up.

              After seeing multiple clips of him playing, I would have to agree with you. Bad burst off the line, taken out of the play often by the man he is lined up against, bad angles on the RB during pitch plays. I was going off the info that some friends of mine who are Florida fans gave me. Turns out they were wrong :|

                I wouldn't give up our second for him. Possibly if he slipped to the third, than yes.

                    physically he's awesome, i don't know about the rest but he's worth a look anyways.

                      Defensive end is, in my opinion, our biggest position of need as, Chris Long excepted, we have no long-term options there. It is for that reason that I'd like to see us draft the best DE available at number thirty-three.

                      As has already been pointed out, Dunlap has all of the physical attributes but lacks drive. If our brains trust are impressed by his interviews and convinced that he can turn the corner and become the player he promises to be, then he'd have to enter calculations, although I'd hope that Everson Griffen falls to us.

                        As we hold the top pick of the second round, the first pick on the friday, i would prefer to lure someone into trading for him and move back in the second round for an extra pick in a later round, rather than drafting him ourselves.

                          No, i do not want to take Vernon Gholston...woops, i meant Carlos Dunlap, at the top of the second.

                          either..

                          Take Suh and either pickup a DE in FA, or draft one or two in the later rounds that will work in Spags system.

                          or

                          Take Bradford in first, and get a DE in the 2nd that isnt Dunlap.

                            Who will we pick in the second round
                            by Canadian Rams Fan
                            I think that we mostly all agree that we are going O.T in the first round. Well who do you guys think we will draft in the second round or what possition. I mean we have needs at L.B, D.T, T.E, R.B, F.B and even W.R what position do you guys think we will address here. Assuming that we sign James Butler and will not be needing a Strong Safety.

                            Derrick Morgan and Jonathan Dwyer entering draft
                            by AvengerRam_old
                            GaTech's DE Derrick Morgan and RB Jonathan Dwyer have declared.

                            Morgan is #2 on my draft board. I expect he'll be a Top 10 pick.

                            Dwyer's entry into the draft can benefit the Rams, as it makes the RB class deeper, which increases the chance that a quality back could fall to the 3rd or 4th round when the Rams might be looking for a backup to Steven Jackson. Dwyer himself is a likely first or second round pick.

                            By Anthony Bafaro
                            December 20th 2013

                            Hello friends. Podcast addiction has kept me from the keyboard for quite some time, but I was recently inspired by Rams Addiction loyalist, Cesar Noel, so I decided to take to the typing. He introduced me to a new addiction on Tuesday nightĖa 2014 NFL draft simulator.

                            Sorry, Iím not giving you the link to the simulator until the end of the article. I canít force you to read this epic narrative, but if the only reason you came here was to use me as a gateway to the mental masturbation machine, youíre at least going to have to scroll through it all first, because, well, Iím kind of a dick.

                            First off, a brief description of the simulator. You can pick any team and run its draft based on current draft position. You can make trades, but itís somewhat limited. When youíre on the clock, you CANNOT propose trades; you can only accept or ignore offers made to you. No negotiating; take it or leave it. When other teams are on the clock, you can propose a trade to that specific team, no others. Again, no negotiating. They either accept or reject the trade, and if they reject it they immediately trade with another team or draft a player. So if you need the deal to go down, you better pony up enough picks to make sure it happens on the first try.

                            Last thing before we get started. As you all know, free agency comes first. For the sake of this exercise, the free agent moves I manifested in my head went as follows:

                            I cut Cortland Finnegan, designated post June 1st, which saved $6M.
                            I cut Harvey Dahl, which saved $4M.
                            I re-signed Rodger Saffold (to play guard, of course).
                            I went hard, and signed Jairus Byrd to play FS.

                            Iíll get into this more once we get closer to free agent time, but I think Jairus Byrd is the single most important free agent target for the Rams this offseason. With him, they have a stud, ball-hawking, free-roaming center-fielderĖa piece that I believe takes this defense from enigmatic to elite, regardless of what else is added. Without him, they almost have to draft Clinton-Dix. Nothing against Ha-Ha, but being handcuffed to a player who could go top-ten, but might be 20th in terms of BPA, seriously limits your draft-day flexibility.

                            I really donít want to spend 500 words defending whether or not these moves are financially feasible, so Iíll try to keep this concise.

                            The Rams have about $12M in dead money coming off the books, but most of that will be consumed by pay raises for several key players (Sam Bradford, Chris Long, Jake Long, and Jared Cook). The money I saved with the aforementioned cuts essentially represents the total cap space I have to work withĖat least right nowĖbut keep in mind Kevin Demoff is a contract boss.

                            Demoff isnít big on big...

                            Round 2: Bang for your buck?
                            by Bar-bq
                            It appears concensus that the Rams will try to fill one of two holes with their first round pick. Those are offensive line (via Jake Long) or defensive end (Via Chris Long or Vernon Gholston). I've been pondering strategy for round two since the release of Isaac Bruce, and the apparent release of Brandon Chillar, and what's occured to me is this.

                            We will still have three significant areas of need at pick number 33. They are SLB, WR and either OT/DE. Kinda obvious, huh?

                            But where it gets complicated is finding "bang for your buck". That is, a player who fills a need with value that co-incides with where you're picking. And it appears we may be spoilt for choice.

                            So my question is this; depending on how we choose in round 1, where do your priorities lay in round 2? That is, in order, what positions do you want drafted according to who is projected to be available?

                            If we choose OT, we still have a glaring need at DE, which has to skyrocket to the top of the round 2 priority list, IMO. We could still find a decent player available then and there with a guy like Ellis, Groves, or Jackson. Then you have to look at the strong likelihood that there's a solid wideout avialable, and our lack of depth in the slot. A guy like Tavares Gooden has been mentioned a bit as a candidate in the Pro Day thread, and he could find himself a candidate to replace Chillar here, too- though Devaney has reported to be high on Culberson.

                            However, if CL or Vernon Gholston ends up a Ram, then you have a whole new ballgame to play. The wealth available at WR may be the best option, but it's neck and neck with insurace at OT, IMO. Again, Gooden remains a posibility.

                            So my positional big board for round 2, as of today, looks like this, depending on the player we draft in round 1.

                            If we draft OT, in round 1, my preference is as follows.

                            DE
                            WR
                            SLB

                            If we look at DE in round 1....

                            WR
                            OT
                            SLB

                            Your thoughts?
