  • If it isn't Bradford or Suh, who's your guy?

    With the 1st pick in the NFL draft the St. Louis Rams select Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame :helmet:

    If not Bradford or Suh, the only person I would even consider acceptable at #1 overall would be Gerald McCoy. Anybody else would be lousy value IMO.

      If we do not end up with Bradford, Suh or Gerald McCoy with the first pick I really hope we end up with a motherload of picks in some trade down scenario.

        With the 7th pick of the 2010 Draft, the Rams select Derrick Morgan. Just call him Captain!
        I believe!:ram:

          If it isn't Bradford or Suh, and it's still the first overall pick, then I'd go Gerald McCoy.

            Eric Berry is the 2nd bpa in the draft, with both of the glamor players out of the picture this kind of choice is simple. We need talent and Berry brings that by the truck load.

              Who do you want the Rams to take if we stay #1 Suh or Bradford?

              Less then 24 hours to go I wanted to see where the Clan stood on the Bradford vs. Suh debate just before the draft. Who do you want to see the Rams take at #1? Don't vote for who you think they want vote for who you want.

              Bradford of Suh ?
              by jerseyramsfan
              After last season I wanted the Rams to finish near the bottom to have a shot at Sam Bradford. Well now a year later my wish for a franchise QB is a reality. But all I've been hearing about is how Suh is the best DT to come out in decades. Man now I'm really torn. Lets get some discussion going between the two players...

              My final take on Bradford vs. Suh.
              by HUbison
              These thoughts will not change over the next month.......assuming neither of them molests a goat or some such thing. Here's a few things that I think will happen over the next decade (barring injury or end-of-the-world type stuff):

              Bradford will be a very good QB.

              Suh will be an elite DT.

              With Suh, the Rams defense will show serious improvement, including better ypa in the rush D, and more pressure on the QB. The offense won't change all that much.

              With Bradford, the Rams offense will show some improvement, but will require improvements to the receiving corp to make any large steps forward. The defense won't change much at all.

              I understand the QB choice. I do, I get it. And Bradford will be a really solid QB. He'll show it on his pro day; he'll make crisp accurate passes, he'll dazzle in interviews, he will demonstrate to franchises that he is an intelligent, articulate young man with all the intangibles you'd ever want.

              But he won't be the player that Suh will be.

              Bradford will walk into Rams Park, and on the practice field, he will make everyone believe that scientists cloned Phillip Rivers and Kurt Warner, combined the DNA, and out popped Sammy.

              But he won't raise the offense the way that Suh will raise the defense.

              With Bradford, his success will rely on other pieces. Will the receivers be able to separate so that his amazing accuracy can be demonstrated? Will the line protect him the way that his Oklahoma line (manned by 5 NFL lineman in 2008) protected him?

              With Suh, his success will not be as dependent on those around him. Rather the opposite. The DEs will see more lanes as Suh occupies the interior. Same for blitzers. The DBs will look better as pockets collapse and QBs have to rush passes.

              Bradford will be good.......but every draft has a "Bradford".
              Suh will be great........and there may be one "Suh" a decade. (Not my words, by the way.)

              So do we draft a Bradford, then wait a decade for the next Suh?
              Or do we draft Suh, and pick up next year's Bradford?

              Look, I'm not saying Bradford isn't worth the #1 pick......if Suh weren't in it. Take Suh out of the draft, and Bradford is the #1 pick (though McCoy fans would have their valid points as well). So, no, I'm not going to complain about drafting Bradford at #1. In any ordinary year, he is a #1 pick.

              I'm just saying that with Suh available, this isn't an "ordinary" year.

              I'm sure Bradford will do fine. But I would be lying if I said his long-term health isn't a concern. The Rams have protected their QB with a sack % of 7.5% to 8.0% over the past few years. But he's coming from an offense that protected him with a sack % of 2.7%. And even then (as Nick has pointed out),...

              So we picked Bradford, but what if we could of picked Suh and now Clausen. Would you have rather done have them?
