    How many of the drafted and undrafted rookies do you think will make the team?

  • #2
    Re: Rookies

    I'm pretty sure they will all make the "team" meaning that they will all at least make the PS

      Re: Rookies

      I think 5-7 make the real roster.

      Bradford
      Saffold
      Murphy
      Gilyard
      Hoomanawanui
      Selvie

      Maybe Hall Davis, Marquis Johnson, and Josh Hull.


      And maybe 2/3 of the rest of the drafted rookies and undrafted rookies will make the practice squad.

        Having not seen an of the picks after round 4 play, i couldn't say at all. Some guys step up and some guys don't, all i know is im looking forward to seeing who DOES step up.

          I dont think Bradford will start though. Spag's has said that he really like how Andy Reid eased McNabb into the QB position. And McNabb didnt start the first 9 games or so.

            How many undrafted rookies did we have last year? I think they all have a good shot.

              Re: Rookies

              Using the past two drafts as reference, there's a good shot for 7 or 8 of them.
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                You missed TE/WR Fendi Onobun. His talent is limitless. The Rams have to find ways to get him on the field. The miss matches he brings to LB/S are good. He is going to be one of the exciting players to watch drafted by the Rams. Rams TE at camp this summer
                1 : B. Bajema 6'-4" 259LBS 6 years (mostly blocking TE)
                2 : D. Johnson 6'-5" 252LBS 4 years (Back up with NY Giants)
                3 : S. Conover 6'-5" 275LBS 3 years
                4 : E. Butler 6'-2" 255LBS 1 year
                5 : M. Hoomanawanui 6'-4" 263LBS Drafted Rookie
                6 : F. Onobun 6'-6" 252LBS Drafted Rookie(ran 4.45 & 4.50 , 40yd)
                7 : J. McCoy 6'-2" 240LBS Undrafted Rookie
                Listed as a FB. 8 : D. Fells 6'4" 272LBS

                Onobun runs faster than Rookie WR Gilyard. I don't know to many LBs that can cover him. Safeties are fast enough but not big enough. He will win the jump ball every time.

                I just see a great weapon in TE/WR Onobun that Bradford could use. I hope he is as good as A. gates or better. What a great red zone threat.

                I agree with you Hubison. I'm hoping for 7 - 10 players make the Roster. My thought if they can't make the starting lineup after three to four years time to move on. I always use the Example of DE Eric Moore 5 years and can't make the starting roster. Should of drafted another DE for compitition after the third year. If the Rookie shows any potential to be better than E. Moore. Then release Moore. Rookies have to show vast improvements every year.

                  Hub is absolutely right. As this is only the second draft for Spags type players, there's a good chance that most of them will make the roster or PS, if only because they'll be displacing Linehan players.
                  I believe!:ram:

                    Nah, I'm just considering him being on the practice squad for this season. It's not written in stone though, so Spags might feel that Onubon is ready after training camp.

                    I hope he is.

                      I'd say all the drafted players and 2 at most of our own undrafted guys

                        Or he may not want to risk losing him to another team like that. We do have several players who, while on the NFL team, don't dress. It isn't too hard to fill that position, it's basically practice squad, but protected.

                          Let's not get our hopes up for Onobun. I love what he brings as far as ability. But his rawness can't be stressed enough. I've played more football than this guy. I also don't have nerly the ability he has. Maybe his talent can push him onto the field sooner rather than later, but I would not hold my breath. I'm looking in other areas for surprises and holding the Onobun love on the backbruner so if he DOES come out and shows out, I will be pleasantly surprised.

                            I think we could see quite a few of them. Bradford, Saffold, and Murphy are pretty much locks. Gilyard should make the practice squad at a minimum. Somebody will land the third tight end job. Probably at least one or two of the new defensive linemen make the roster. In fact, I'd say potentially all the backup jobs on the defensive line--or the entire defense really--could be up for grabs.

                            I don't expect Onobun to make the roster just yet, but I do think he'll be on the practice squad.

                              I don't have a clue. The roster will be ultra fun to watch as the preseason progresses. The way the Rams cut veterans last year, I wonder if that might not happen again this year with those remaining. Does Bajema make this team? Hoomanawanui may make him irrelevant. There are a few of those on this roster that could free up drafted and undrafted FAs.

                                Rams' Roster Brimming With Rookies
                                by r8rh8rmike
                                Rams' roster brimming with rookies

                                By BILL COATS
                                Monday, September 6, 2010


                                More than one-fourth of the St. Louis Rams 53-man roster -- at least as it stands today -- is made up of rookies. Nine were draft choices; the five others were undrafted.

                                "Until you guys started throwing out these numbers, I hadnít even thought about it," coach Steve Spagnuolo told reporters Monday after the first official regular-season practice. "Honestly, I didnít put the roster together, look at it, and say, ĎOK how many seniors, juniors, and freshmen do we have.í I didnít do that. It is what it is.

                                "We kept what we felt were the best football players, both for now and for the future."

                                The high number of undrafted rookies to make the team is a testament to the team's scouting department, Spagnuolo stressed. "That is a credit to those guys and all the work they do right after the draft is over," he said. "But those guys earned it, those players that youíre talking about. Thatís not easy to do in this league, in this landscape, to come in undrafted and make it."

                                As of right now, the NFL coaches can have no contact with undrafted rookies. When we can here are the players I want to invite for visits.

                                Deandre Mcdaniel, S, Clemson
                                Mark Herzlich, OLB, Boston College
                                Noel Devine, RB, West Virginia
                                Derrick Locke, RB, Kentucky
                                Stephen Schilling, OG, Michigan


                                Thats all for now. I am just really surprised we left backup RB open again.
