  • Could this guy play TE?

    Do you think that if we signed David Boston cheaply that we could convert him to a Tight End? I mean he is only 6'2" 228lbs but he is sure one heck of a mammoth. I bet he can double what Manu benchs. This maybe a dumb idea to you guys but I think he has the physical ability to play Tight End..

    Um, no. He's a fairly good blocking WR, but I'd hate to see him trying to block a lineman or linebacker on the edge of the line. Plus, that's far from ideal size.

          I'd be more concerned about his mental ability with an NFL suspension for steroids, a notoriously bad attitude, past drug charges and bizarre behavior that would put Ricky Williams to shame. Great talent and ability but a major head case with trouble written all over him.

              They did a big write up on him in the ESPN mag a few years back talking about his wierd behavior, lack of team chemistry and how prone he is to injury. They said that team docs said that his body was getting to massive for his lower legs to support. I think he has gotten injured about every year in the NFL. It's a shame cuz I loved him coming out of college. I think it is time to change my avatar. Goodbye Arch.

                We need a REAL TE not a prototype, or worse, a TE that can't block very well or catch, (MANU!)
                I wonder if Jerome Collins will get a chance during training camp.

                  i like JC i like guys out of notre dame. im almost sure that Boston left ARZ to go to SD because AZ wanted to convert him to TE. and SD told him he could play WR. then he fell out because he's a head case

                    What about tight end?
                    by viper
                    It seems to me that Tampa Bay tight end Jucurvious (sp?) was going to be available in FA. Is that correct? I would think he could be a good off season acquisition if we could afford him. Is he still available and does anyone think he would be worth going after?

                    That is a position that could be so powerful for our offense. Not to mention the blocking that is needed by that position. It is a weapon that has not been used much since Cromwell left. We have felt the loss ever since.

                    What do you think?

                    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??

                    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

                    TE Daniel Fells is one of the top sleepers of 09
                    by ramfan247
                    Excited about this kid. He showed a lot of promise and potential last year and it seems like hes gonna have a big 2009.
                    Its been reported that he has really shined in the last two mini-camps and has excelled as a slot receiver and mobile Tight End.
                    Bulger said that he had a "rediculously great" mini-camp and that he was playing like "lights out." And lots of media outlets that watched both camps have reported that he has gotten a whole lot of red zone action and that hes gonna be one of the number one deep threats this year.
                    Hes a big guy and could be the big receiving target we need this year because all our receivers are definitely on the small side.
                    Shurmur (the offensive coordinator) said "Fells is the guy for us that's really gonna make mis-matches with the defenses we go up against this year."
                    He's a definite sleeper and I think he might get more action as a receiving tight end than McMichael. I'm callin it. We'll see!

                    Daniel Fells should get more credit imo
                    by thatguy
                    I don't see many people talking about him but he is a big target and he knows how to use his size to his advantage. He isn't the fastest or most athletic but he has solid hands and as soon as he catches the ball he always goes straight up field. At 270 pounds he is tough to tackle and he knows that and that's what I like about him. Whether its Fells, Onubon, or Hoomanawanui I think the rams have a bright future at the TE position
