  • Rams Roster, Last Day: How do you count to 53?

    :ram: Alright...

    First Friday in September. Final day for the big roster trimming -- a very difficult task, especially when the numbers are dwindling to only ten or seven players left to select. We've already discussed some names for the 2009 team ... but now ...

    How do YOU count to 53? ;)

    Without elaborating as to 'why' for now (you can of course), my tentative, incomplete guess / wish list follows:


    OFFENSE (26)
    QB -- Marc Bulger; Kyle Boller; Brock Berlin
    WR -- Donnie Avery; Keenan Burton; Tim Carter; Ronald Curry; Laurent Robinson; Derek Stanley
    RB -- Steven Jackson; Mike Carney (FB); Sam Gado; Chris Ogbonnaya; Antonio Pittman
    OL -- Alex Barron LT; Jacob Bell, LG; Jason Brown, C; Richie Cogs, RG/C; Jason Smith, RT // Roger Alen III G; Renardo Foster, T; Adam Goldberg, T; John Greco, G; Mark Seterstrom, G
    TE -- Randy McMichael; Daniel Fells

    DEFENSE (21)
    DE -- Victor Adeyanju; Leonard Little; Chris Long; Eric Moore
    DT -- Adam Carriker; Clifton Ryan; Darrell Scott
    LB -- Quinton Culberson; Larry Grant; James Laurinaitis; Will Witherspoon; David Vobora // K.C. Asiodu [...you go, Ekenemchukwu!]
    CB -- Ron Bartell; Quincy Butler; Justin King; Jonathan Wade
    S -- Atogwe, Oshiomogho; James Butler; Todd Johnson; David Roach


    SPECIAL T (3)

    K -- Josh Brown
    P -- Donnie Jones
    LS -- Chris Massey


    PRACTICE SQUAD
    Keith Null, QB
    Mark Rubin, SS

    As I said, difficult indeed. Help me out! :o

    Clifton Ryan not Ryan Clifton!

    We definitely will need another DT and also you cant miss James Hall of the list at DE
    Ive not seen anything from Tim Carter to suggest he gets kept
    And i doubt we keep four RBs on the roster, and i doubt we keep Pittman over Darby

      -I agree with the above poster that James Hall should be in there and another DT (either Gibson or Thomas and maybe both if Carriker is hurt bad).
      -I think it's a toss up with Berlin and Null.
      -I think that Nate Jones or Sean Walker could unseat Carter or maybe Curry on your list.
      -Bajema will be on the roster.
      -I think Draft will be on there instead of Culberson
      -Fletcher should be included with the CBs. After trading Hill, we should be carrying 5 since all but Bartell are proven.
      -Would much rather see Dahl then Roach.

        General breakdown in the NFL is:

        3 QBs
        5 RBs (including FBs)
        3 TEs
        6 WRs
        9 OL
        9 DL
        7 LB
        8 DB
        3 ST

        Maybe they don't go with a 3rd ST specialist, or they want 4 or 5 TEs like Linehan required! It's a rough guide.

          We need 4 or 5 DTs especially because of Carriker's injury.

            4 DTs is the minimum 5 is the max. Considering Adeyanju and Hall have been able to play both positions at times, it's likely they go with 4 healthy DTs.

              Cut David Roach and keep Bradley Fletcher. Fletcher also played some safety in college before cornerback at Iowa. He's way to good to cut, he's going to turn into a stud.

                Understood: so we should keep Ryan and let go of Clifton.

                  Adding TE Bajema and veteran LB Draft to the picture = 52 players. // Maybe DT Gibson should be in there too...

                    Re: Rams Roster, Last Day: How do you count to 53?

                    i would add James Hall and take off Moore, add Hollis Thomas and Gary Gibson and maybe another unknown DT (that's going to get cut from another team) because the way it looks Carriker will be on IR for the season.
                    -And i agree with Zinger Dahl is better then Roach.
                    - I also like Trautwein better then Renardo foster.

                      :disapointed: A.C. not 'cool' all of a sudden! He's frozen solid. At least injured for 2009 it seems.

                      I agree with 39's emergency plan: Clifton and Scott are simply going to have to step in, step up strong. DO IT.

                      Now, is it Gibson's opportunity or, Tomas' last call?

                        I cant see Roach making the squad and I would say show Todd Johnson the door too. Keep Dahl and maybe pick up a safety from someone else's scrap heap. I would prefer Chamberlain to Culberson at LB. At WR I would go with 5 instead of 6 and send Walker and maybe Jones to the practice squad, this is going to hopefully be a run heavy offense with a limited number of 4 receiver sets and lots of 2 TE then use the extra roster spot for the DL (Ah You?)and if they go with 6 WR maybe they can find a WR/Returner in the last cuts that would help fill what is IMO a glaring hole on this team(returner)

                          QB
                          Bulger, Boller, Berlin (triple B's)
                          RB/FB
                          S-jax, Karney, Gado, Pittman, Darby

                          OL
                          Barron, Bell, Brown, Cogs, Smith, Goldberg, Setterstrom, Rodger Allen III, Grecco
                          WR
                          Avery, Robinson, Burton, Stanley, Curry

                          DEFENSE

                          DL
                          Long, Adenyanju, Ah You, Ryan, Scott, Hall, Little, Thomas, Gibson
                          LB
                          Spoon, Lauranatis, Draft, Vobora, Chamberlin, Grant
                          CB
                          Bartell, King, Wade, Fletcher, Butler
                          S
                          OJ, Butler, Johnson, Dahl

                          Special
                          Massey, Jones, Brown, Parks (KR)

                          Practice Squad
                          Null
                          Ogbonaya
                          Schuening
                          Roach

                          Cord Parks and Rodger Allen are my upsets. Stanley hasn't been good returning, but he is lucky his recieving has improved. Parks has been one of the better returners, but he probably won't make the team after we hit the waiver wire. Allen's strength and size make him a great fit for our new look line. He could start some day especially if our current guards continue to underwhelm. I think we will hit the waiver wire in search for a DT, RB, WR or safety once that happens the first guys off are Cord Parks, Hollis Thomas, Kenneth Darby, Ronald Curry, and Roger Allen (Practice Squad). I wouldn't be surprised to see a name like Reggie Brown instead of Curry or a RB in Darby's spot or a DT Thomas's spot

                                by Nick
                                Breaking down the Rams roster
                                Thursday, Jul. 30 2009


                                QUARTERBACK
                                Unless sixth-rounder Keith Null upends Brock Berlin for the No. 3 job, the
                                pecking order is set, with Marc Bulger the starter and Kyle Boller the backup.

                                In Camp (4): Bulger, Boller, Berlin, Null


                                RUNNING BACK

                                Who's No. 2? Kenneth Darby appears to have the edge over Antonio Pittman
                                entering camp. But Samkon Gado and Chris Ogbonnaya could change that with
                                strong preaseasons.

                                In Camp (5): Darby, Gado, Steven Jackson, Ogbonnaya, Pittman


                                TIGHT END/FULLBACK

                                Randy McMichael's the starter, and Billy Bajema's the blocking specialist at
                                TE. Joe Klopfenstein could be the odd man out if Daniel Fells continues his
                                strong play from the spring.

                                In Camp (7): Bajema (TE), Eric Butler (TE), Fells (TE), Jerome Johnson (FB),
                                Mike Karney (FB), Klopfenstein (TE), McMichael (TE)


                                WIDE RECEIVER

                                Nothing is set in stone other than Donnie Avery as the No. 1 wideout. Keenan
                                Burton, Tim Carter, Ronald Curry, fifth-round draft pick Brooks Foster, Laurent
                                Robinson and Derek Stanley will battle for playing time and roster spots among
                                the four or five other jobs on the final roster.

                                In Camp (10): Avery, Burton, Jarrett Byers, Carter, Curry, Foster, Nate Jones,

                                The likely starting five is (from left) Alex Barron and Jason Smith at tackle,
                                Jacob Bell and Richie Incognito at guard, and Jason Brown at center. But who
                                else makes the final roster beyond Adam Goldberg and John Greco?

                                In Camp (15): Roger Allen (G), Barron (T), Bell (G), Brown (C), Renardo Foster
                                (T), Goldberg (T/G), Greco (G), Incognito (G), Tim Mattran (C), Daniel Sanders
                                (C), Roy Schuening (G), Mark Setterstrom (G/C), Smith (T), Phil Trautwein (T),

                                Not much suspense here. If eight D-linemen make the final roster come
                                September, it looks like only the backup tackle spots are truly up for grabs.

                                In Camp (13): Victor Adeyanju (DE), C. J. Ah You (DE), Antwon Burton (DT), Ian

                                hotly contested battle in camp. Chris Draft, Quinton Culberson, Larry Grant and
                                David Vobora are all candidates.

                                Please place your players names. My roster still in progress. ;)

                                What Rams do you think have played their way on to next years roster?

                                Be it that they have had good seasons, or have shown flashes, who do you think, from our current crop of players, should be back next year?

                                This isnt a list of starters for next year, its a list of players that ive liked the look of and who i think can do some good for us next year. Someone like Billy Bajema has been a good blocker and has shown an ability to catch, and will be a good backup TE for us. Adam Goldberg's ability to fill in on most positions on the line is good for a backup T and G, same with Mark Setterstrom at G and C. Guys like Ah You and Douzable have shown good ability in limited time. Craig Dahl always seems to be around the ball when he is on the field and can hit pretty well.

                                Im not sure if any of these guya are free agents, and there are clearly players signed to big contracts that will be back, but i think these guys deserve a shot.

                                I think the main reason for this is that the majority of these guys are playing with heart and passion, despite us being a losing team late in the season.
