    I don't think few of these guys will be on the roster when the Seahawks come around. There are already a bunch of interesting names on the waiver wire especially at QB where John David Booty and Brian Brohm are 2 college stars with experience in the WCO. Are they an upgrade over Null? Maybe. Reggie Brown is also a name to watch considering we cut the 2 vets Carter and Curry I think we will look to add some sort of experience. One position I think we will most definately add a guy is RB.

    IMO Nate Jones, Hollis Thomas, Erick Young, Quinton Culberson, and Kenneth Darby all still on the bubble.

      Not filled with big names. That's going to take some getting used to.

      I still think that this is a good first step in rebuilding.

        I personally love the look of this roster. I don't see the apparent need to add a DT that some do. Hollis is a monster run stuffer, let the other young guys learn ...

        5 WR's is enough here. Should the injury bug bite, Tim Carter and Ronald Curry will likely be waiting ...

        No way Darby is on the bubble, but they are going to have to add another RB, probably at the expense of a linebacker ...

        I love keeping Nate Jones, who is a big, talented young wide receiver ...

        Very surprised that Roach made the roster ....

          I find it interesting that Roy Scheuning was waived and I don't see it being discussed anywhere else. Spagnuolo is really cleaning house. It seems like most players drafted during the Linehan regime (with the exception of Long, Burton, Culberson and Avery) have been cut or traded. It says a lot about both the difference in the discrepancy in talent evaluation between Linehan and Spagnuolo and the way Spagnuolo seems intent on building from the ground up.

          I, for one, really like it. It has a very grass roots, organic feel and I think that given time (and for the purposes of this metaphor, fertilizer) we could become a successful unit.

                I thought Linehan added a ton of fertilizer (manure) to the roster. I think Spags is removing some of that fertilizer.

                    I had a feeling Roger Allen III would replace Scheuning. Allen was one of the top UDFAs to hit the market. He's a big guy and known as a run blocker - probably fits the system more than Scheuning did.

                    Interesting that two draft picks were cut - Brooks Foster (5th) and Ogbonnaya (7th).

                    Keeping David Roach is a mystery to me. I preferred Todd Johnson over him. Roach badly missed some tackles in the preseason. Maybe the coaching staff sees some potential on special teams.

                      Foster is on IR, not cut
                      Ogbonnaya was a 7th rounder so thats not surprising, especially with our need of back up RB and him not showing much in preseason

                      he will likely be on the practice squad

                          I'm surprised Schuening was let go. Steven Jackson actually wanted to get him drafted to the Rams, as he was supposedly a good run blocker that he wanted to be blocking for him.

                          Also surprised Curry was let go, as he had a pretty good pre-season. I know Spagnuolo wants to build this team his way with his people, but you still should need at least one vet wide receiver to show the young guys tricks and tips. Hmm.


                          I think Hollis Thomas may be serviceable for us for a year or two, but we have to start looking for a younger, taller, stronger, more athletic NT. Most likely in this year's draft.

                              Thomas and Darby didn't impress me at all during the preseason, IMO we should definately be looking for an RB and maybe a DT

                                :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

                                RB -- Steven Jackson; Mike Carney (FB); Sam Gado; Chris Ogbonnaya; Antonio Pittman

                                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!]

                                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,
                                Robinson, Stanley, Sean Walker


                                OFFENSIVE LINE

                                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),
                                Eric Young (T)


                                DEFENSIVE LINE

                                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
                                Campbell (DE), Adam Carriker (DT), Gary Gibson (DT), James Hall (DE), Leonard
                                Little (DE), Chris Long (DE), Eric Moore (DE), Clifton Ryan (DT), Darell Scott
                                (DT), Hollis Thomas (DT)


                                LINEBACKER

                                Other than wide receiver, the starting strongside LB job could be the most
                                hotly contested battle in camp. Chris Draft, Quinton Culberson, Larry Grant and
                                David Vobora are all candidates.

                                In Camp (9): K.C. Asiodu, Chris Chamberlain, Culberson, Dominic Douglas, Draft,
                                Grant, James Laurinaitis, Vobora, Will Witherspoon...

                                What Rams do you think have played their way on to next years roster?
                                by tomahawk247
                                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?

                                QB: Keith Null
                                RB: Steven Jackson

                                WR: Brandon Gibson
                                WR: Danny Amendola
                                TE: Billy Bajema

                                DT: Darell Scott
                                DT: Leger Douzable
                                LB: James Laurinaitis
                                LB: David Vobora

                                FS: Craig Dahl

                                K: Josh Brown
                                P: Donnie Jones

                                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.

                                Sakl18's Mock Offseason 2.0
                                by sakl18
                                Release/Let Walk
                                • Alex Barron, LT - His spree of drive killing penalties comes to an end.
                                • Kyle Boller, QB - Showed us just why he's no longer a Raven.
                                • Randy McMichael, TE - Hasn't played at the level he did in Miami.
                                • Leonard Little, LE - If he's willing to stay for a small contract he gets re-signed, otherwise he goes.
                                • Marc Bulger, QB - His days as a Ram are over, as both parties need a fresh start.
                                • Samkon Gado, RB - Really struggled this season and an upgrade is needed.
                                • Kenneth Darby, RB - Another backup RB who was innefective.

                                Resign
                                • Anyone who isn't being let loose.

                                Free Agents
                                • Jason Campbell, QB, Washington - He still has potential and needs a fresh start. If all else fails, he's a stop gap QB.
                                • Ray Edwards, LE, Minnesota - A solid DE who would immediately help with our pass rush woes.
                                • Jerious Norwood, RB, Atlanta - A speed back who would be a great change of pace for Jackson, and would also lessen his work load.

                                Draft
                                • 1) Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska - Need I say more?
                                • 2) Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri - A fast sideline to sideline 'backer who wold start immediately. Also has great leadership skills.
                                • 3) Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan - Has a good arm and great mobility. Will take a few years to transition game to the NFL level, but has great potential.
                                • 4) Jared Veldheer, OT, Hillsdale - A massive tackle with surprising agility for his size. Would start immediately at RT.
                                • 5A) Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami - Converted basketball player who has great height and quickness. Has phenominal upside.
                                • 5B) Joique Bell, RB, Wayne State - A back who's both shifty and physical, and can catch passes out of the backfield.
                                • 6) Devin Ross, CB, Arizona - Has good potential for a late round pick and will provide depth.
                                • 7A) O'Brien Schoefield, DE, Wisconsin - A great pass rusher who was a projeccted 2nd or 3r round prospect who tore his ACL at a Senior Bowl practice. He may have to be placed on IR for his first year, but he has the potential to be a late round gem.
                                • 7B) Cord Howard, OG, Georgia Tech - Will provide depth at the guard position.
