  • Aaron Curry?

    THis guy looks frightening, I only hope J.Smith turns out to be awesome?
    Otherwise we will be kicking ourselves literally. That pick will impact the RAms either way.
    I believe hes the next superstar defender in the NFL.-IN Seattle.

    Re: Aaron Curry?

    I was a huge fan of Curry before the draft, and I think he'll be a very good LB. But I also think the Rams did the right think in picking Smith. We got a great looking MLB in the second round who could end up having just as big an impact as Curry does.

      Living in England I only get to see the highlights at best.
      But as you point out, JL AND JS seem to be o.k.
      Curry on the other hand looks like a real stud.
      Lets wait and see
      GO RAMS

        Last year JL would've been picked in about the same spot as Curry.

          Curry hasn't even played as single real game in the NFL yet, and he looks like a stud?

          Do you have a physical attraction to him? Because as of today, he has 0 tackles, 0 sacks, and 0 INT ....

              Curry had a total of 9 tackles in the preseason. Those must have been 9 really impressive tackles for you to draw the conclusion that he's a "real stud."

                  Everything I've read says Curry looked like an unstoppable force against the Faiders last week, and the video highlights were impressive. Of course, he looked that way against mostly backups, Faiders backups. He'll get his chance on Sunday.

                    Re: Aaron Curry?

                    I watched each Seahawk preseason game twice. First game Curry looked like it was his first game, over thinking things and what not. Kind of expected. Game 2 he did not play as a precaution because of a sore groin. Game 3 he played but not a ton, and made some great plays and had a HUGE hit on a KC receiver (Battle I believe). Game 4 he played the first half and did almost all of his preseason work there, on the ball almost every play. Even when not being the guy making the tackle he was right there. Got to the quarterback a couple times. Was owning Oaklands O Line with both speed and brute strength. He looked like a man posessed. From what I have read he hit somewhat of a comfort zone where he could just play and not think too much the last game. I think he is going to be a monster just from what I saw the last two preseason games. He is a BIG hitter, freak athlete, and makes textbook tackles, sure tackles, doesnt just throw the shoulder. I am really happy we picked him up! Jason Smith was a smarter pick for the Rams though in my opinion, it fit a more glaring need and you got a good backer in Laurenitis too so if I were a Ram fan I wouldnt be kicking myself, but that said, Curry is going to be dangerous. I am 99% sure of it from what I have seen thus far. Man Crush.

                      I have a question that I've been wanting to ask to a Seachalk fan. If the Rams had taken Curry at #2, who, in your opinion, would you guys have selected? Also, would this have effected ya'll taking Unger in the 2nd round?

                      WHAT SAY YE?

                        Re: Aaron Curry?

                        If K.C were to take Jackson as they did, I definitely think it would have been J. Smith or maybe Crabtree but in gaining Housh I would lean toward J. Smith because we are going to need a legit LT to follow Walt. Most of us are really hoping we take a Left Tackle with one of our 2 first round picks next year. I like Brian Bulaga out of Iowa personally. I would have taken J. Smith if it were me.

                        Therefore, I dont think we would have gone after Unger, probably would have gone Running Back or D Line in the 2nd Round.

                        Looking at it now I would hope that if you guys got Curry we would NOT have drafted Crabtree...because well, look at him now. Not a guy you want in your locker room.

                          In turn, I have a question for Rams fans. I was wondering last night.
                          2010 Draft. We are probably going to go after one of the 2 big time Safeties coming out and a Left Tackle.

                          Not saying this will happen, but since you cant really guess...just assuming you are in the same draft position (2nd) as this year, who will the Rams take? What is the priority? It seems to me you may look at a new franchise QB, or maybe even Dez Bryant (stud WR), or maybe D Line?

                          What ya think?

                              Depends where we pick, but i think WR or QB are good bets

                                Ronald Curry doesn't make the Rams
                                by Action_Jackson
                                Wide receiver Ronald Curry was once one of the greatest high school and college athletes in the country.

                                But injuries have sapped his explosiveness, and now three NFL teams have given up on him in the same offseason.

                                After getting traded from Detroit to the Rams in July, the Rams cut Curry on Saturday, according to Fox's Alex Marvez.

                                If Curry couldn't make the Rams' thin roster at wide receiver, he may have trouble extending his NFL career.

                                Not really a shock. Think his career is now over

                                Looks like Curry is on his way out of Seattle. Anyone still interested in him? I wouldn't want to pay hos contract but if he is cut it might not be a terrible pickup.

                                INDIANAPOLIS – The doubters told Aaron Curry this could never happen. This moment, standing in front of assembled NFL media as one of the top prospects in this year’s draft, was supposed to be nothing but a pipe dream.

                                But this was reality. This was Curry recounting the many steps contested on his way to becoming the country’s best linebacker and a potential No. 1 pick in April’s draft.

                                This was a 6’1 ½, 254-pound Curry all grown up from the 195-pound high school kid who used to pad his clothes to try to make himself look bigger to college recruiters.

                                This was a soon to be wealthy beyond his wildest dreams Curry discussing the time he returned home from Wake Forest to a mother who had been evicted from her home.

                                This was the charismatic, tattoo-covered Curry who loves his family above all else and is driven by doing all he can to take care of them.

                                “I'm always a motivated person,” Curry said. “The doubters helped me get here, but it's not the only thing that motivated me. My family, my mother, my two brothers, did a good job of making sure I was always motivated and the situations I faced in my life as far as housing and whether the lights were on or not kept me motivated.”

                                The many bases of Curry’s motivation have led him to Lucas Oil Stadium this weekend for the annual NFL Combine. Curry will work out with the rest of the linebackers on Monday afternoon, a workout that is expected to be every bit as stellar as his four-year career at Wake Forest.

                                Assuming all goes well, Curry is a slam dunk to be a top 5 pick in this year’s draft and he’s quickly gaining momentum toward being the No. 1 overall pick to Detroit.

                                To know how Curry got here, you must first understand where he came from.

                                FAMILY FIRST

                                Curry was born on April 6, 1986 in Fayetteville, N.C. to mother Chris Curry and father Reggie Pinkney.

                                Even from that early age, football seemed to be in Curry’s blood. Pinkney was a Hall of Fame defensive back at East Carolina University and went on to play for the Lions and Baltimore Colts from 1977-1981.

                                By the time Curry was born, Pinkney’s football career had been over for about five years. But things didn’t quite come together as Curry and his father never really developed much of a close relationship.

                                Even as Curry follows in the footsteps of his father on his way to the NFL, the pair still isn’t terribly close.

                                “He tries to be there to support,” Curry said. “He calls probably two or three times a month to make sure I keep my head on straight because he wants to see me do good and even though we didn't have that strong of a relationship as I grew up, he wants me to do the right things.”

                                An interesting thought on Curry
                                by TekeRam
                                One of the knocks that people have on Curry is that he's never played MLB, which isn't quite true, as he played in various places during his college career, but I get their point. For the most part he's always played as the Sam position. Well I have an interesting way that we could draft Curry, keep Pisa, and play Spoon at the weakside all in one fell swoop.

                                In our base 4-3 package, our LB corps would be the aforementioned three, with Pisa manning the Weak side, Spoon in the Middle and Curry on the Strong side. It's also possible to swap Spoon and Curry, or even any of them around to create confusion.

                                Once we go to the nickle, Pisa drops out(except maybe in a special DE sub package), and we go with Curry and Spoon playing hybrid LB's, where they could really do anything as they both can play coverage and rush. The point is, you have no idea what either of them will do on any given play.

                                In the Dime, we could go with either Spoon or Curry, probably Spoon to start with as he has experience, but we could also try a 3-2 Dime package where the Line is Long, Carriker, and Little with Curry and Spoon behind them.

                                The point that I really want to make here is that by drafting Curry, we're not necesarily drafing a Sam backer or a Mike, we're drafting a playmaker at linebacker who already has a rapport with Chris Long and said he'd love to play for us. The key is that we can rotate them all around and do things like New England and Baltimore have done in the past to confuse the hell out of the offense, as Spoon and Curry can do it all. We'd be adding versatility to the defense, not just a player.

                                Now, I'm not advocating Curry as the end all be all, as I still very much think we need to shore up the offensive line against injury this year and against age and contract status of our starting OT's for the future, and so I very much am interested in Monroe and Smith as first picks as well. I just wanted to point out possible ways we could use Curry, even if he doesn't play the Mike right out of the gate.
