  • 2010 Draft Strategy

    Ok, we will be picking top 5 again at best 6th.

    QB is number 1 priority.

    Unless we go after Kolb, Vick, or Derek Anderson we are picking a QB in Round 1.

    So is it gonna be Teabow, Bradford, or McCoy?

    Then the big Question is what need to we get in round 2?

    So would agrue if there is big time play maker on the defensive side of the ball we should grad a big time LB or DE that can rush the QB.

    I will continue to update this thread based on who we should be looking at, and who we should avoid.

    I feel we should try to grab a OLineman in free agency this year and our draft picks should be used on QB, WR, DLine, StronSide LB.

    I really haven't gotten to look at who will be free agents in the league and what our options are, so this is just to spark convo throughout what looks to be a 4 win season at very best.

    TBC......

    Re: 2010 Draft Strategy

    I like the idea of the QB in round one. We are still rebuilding. I have nothing against Bulger at all. In fact, I am a strong supporter. But this is a new team and we are getting younger. No doubt, QB is on the top of my list.

    I like McCoy right now. He has the capability to scramble. Unlike Bradford, McCoy is still healthy. That gives him the upside right now.

      I really would not feel confident in bringing in a rookie qb with the line we have, i think a rookie would struggle and be seen as a bust if he gets hit to many times like marc is right now. I would feel more comfortable brining in a solid DT with our first pick and bring in an actual rookie project qb in the second round that we can train for a year or so to be our franchise, kinda like aaron rodgers. On the other hand if we can grab kolb or anderson in the off season then i think that would be great. There is no doubt Marc is getting older and less productive as the years go on we have to find a new qb regardless of how he does this year.


      edit: I also dont think we should draft tebow, i think he will be a draft bust and wont make the leap to pro caliber

          QB in Round 1 is fine. Unfortunately, any QB we take at the current position that we a predicted, is going to be a very high reach.

            Tebow won't be a 1st rounder, 2nd round at best. Mccoy is my fav out of the crop of QB's in next year's draft.

              Re: 2010 Draft Strategy

              I'm not sure I'd go QB in the first round. Bradford now has an injury history, Tebow is a system guy who many don't think will be a QB at the next level, and I'm not convinced that McCoy has NFL QB tools. I like McCoy's intangibles and leadership ability, but I don't like his arm and his size.

              With as many holes as the Rams have, I'd like to see the focus go on just drafting the best player on the board at that point.

                Re: 2010 Draft Strategy

                Right now I am seeing the needs "draft wise" as DE, OT, WR, OLB, S, QB........... "draft wise!".

                I like Kolb, but can forsee a ....season ending knee injury during training camp, and we will rally around Null and we will play good football........type of moment. In other words, I think the kid has potential and should be the "groomed for the future" QB.

                The Rams are going to have another very high pick. I would rather see Dunlop go to the Rams in the first. This is a young team and Little probably isn't in the long term future plans for this team. Dunlop is comparable to Mario Williams from what I've been able to find. That is a pretty dang nice player and a freak in his own right.

                I would also try to reacquire Truatwen OT, whom I believe is in Minn. If he's is on the roster, not the PS, I wouldn't overpay for him. But I think he has potential as a RT, which we will most likely need shortly.

                Bottom line: There is a reason that Devany and Spag's blew the entire thing up this season. Cleaning crew included. This entire organization is being remodeled. This next draft is only another step in that rebuilding. In hingsight, I think the Rams got extremely lucky in they're GOST years. A QB outta nowhere. A 2nd rounder for a franchise running back. A uniquely creative OC that hadn't gotten much play in the league until then. A franchise left tackle in his prime. A couple of donut boys. The malaise before then and after sure make those GSOT years look awefully devine and lucky. As a whole, this organization needed what they're getting for many many years.

                It's gonna be a process! So hang in there!

                Go Rams!

                  I've been preaching McCoy all along and that concussion on Tebow has now confirmed my choice, he's damaged goods.

                    Tony Pike out of Cincinnati might just be available in round 2. I'd say go after him.

                      I think we need a WR honestly, If we get 1st overall ... Which I love the horns, but I think we look like the worst team in the league right now. I think Qb is a more deep search then Bradford, Tebow or colt.. I like pike also, and think if possible we need to trade down from our high pick and focus on our draft, I like our rookies especially lauranitis ( in time I will learn how to spell his name), So I think we need to expand and look for some more logical FA's next year..

                        I cant believe im answering on this post, but oh well.

                        First Round I would go with Jimmy Clausen he is playing lights out right now seems like the light has really turned on. Bradford might catch up if he recovers from his shoulder injury.

                        Second round you gotta go Eric norwood if he is even there the guy is a strate up beast on that carolina defense he gets a ton of tackles a ton of sacks and TFL's from the SLB position in the 4-3 in Carolina. 6-0 252 former DE go look his stats up on ESPN the guy is a beast

                        In FA go after some OL, WR, LE(Rey Edwards vikings?)

                          I think this is the winner. There's a lot that can change between now and draft day; to get tunnel vision in September on the one position we have to select in April doesn't seem wise.

                          Right now, I'm not sure there's a strong case to be made for any other quarterback than Bradford if the Rams are picking in the top three to five picks, but a lot can change between now and draft day. Rams fans who like Boller's ability to move may not love Bradford though. Colt McCoy may end up as a first round QB, but I'm not sure if he'll be valued high enough for the Rams to consider him in the top five. Great intangibles, but the physical tools aren't outstanding IMO.

                          The Rams might have a shot at someone at the top of the second round. Right now I don't think Jake Locker comes out this year, but if he does I like what I see and he'd be intriguing in the second. As a Big East fan, I'd be disappointed in myself if I didn't mention Tony Pike, who when it's all said and done may be in the first round in April. And call me a homer, but I wouldn't sleep on Jarrett Brown either in the mid rounds.

                          Simply put, the Rams aren't a very good football team right now and could use help just about anywhere. It's way too early to start penciling in any one position for our first round pick. For instance, I think you could make a strong case that this offense needs a playmaker at receiver as much if not more than anything else, and this defensive line (including Chris Long) would certainly benefit from some more talent on the interior, someone who can penetrate on the inside and keep quarterbacks from simply stepping up into the pocket at the first sign of an outside rush.

                            Jimmy Clausen reminds me too much of another Notre Dame QB that currently resides in Cleveland. Not a great arm, and he doesnt like to show up in big games.

                            If we have a chance I would love to see a guy like Terrance Cody or Eric Berry. Both are prime playmakers and both would be a big addition to our secondary. We have very athletic linebackers, but no one to clear space for them. Cody would be able to do that. Berry is a ballhawk that creates turnovers, with Atogwe forcing fumbles and him picking off passes; that secondary would be dangerous.

                            QB is a tough position in this next draft. Sam Bradford is overrated, Tebow is a system QB, and McCoy might not have a strong enough arm to be a star in the NFL. QB is a definite area of need, but no more pressing then the needs at Wide Receiver, Defensive End, Defensive Tackle, and our safety position. (I like Butler, but he's far from a star)

                            This next draft is stacked with defensive talent, and I think that's where we need to look in the first round

                              Im not a Bradford supporter. IMO he is akin to quarterbacks that excell in certain schemes IE Colt Brennan.

                              This is the perfect year to see what Bradford really is made of, as he has no NFL line to protect him anymore as well as no NFL receivers to throw to.
                              The BYU game was right on spot in showcasing what type of QB Bradford really is, as OK struggled even with him in the game.

                              Colt MCoy is a much better prospect IMO, and in fact- Tebow I feel is better too.

                              Tebow may not be the flashy QB, but he brings intangible AKA of the will to win to the field.

                                No QB in the draft next year.
                                by Richbert88
                                This team still has alot of things to do before becoming a playoff caliber team. Young players maturing..............players staying healthy.

                                I would much rather see the Rams address other needs. If things go poorly again, which with they're luck with injuries it will, then next year they might have a shot at Locker. And that may well be the last very high pick this team sees in a while.

                                I think Suh in the first, then chase BPA in round 2 and 3, then needs in the rest of the draft. Continue to sign young FAs.

                                Whose going to play QB? Whose playing it now.

                                Little may retire? who knows. Let's get the rest of the base team fixed up before the QB of the future arrives. Rothsburger style.

                                by AlwaysBackwards
                                after going through many scouting reports and watching some film on 2010 prospects ive narrowed it down to two players. to tell you the truth i cant believe im saying this but none of these two players is a qb. to me its between Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State orNdamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska (6-4, 305)...yes i know we drafted jason smith last year blah blah blah but unless he plays LT we need this mammoth of a tackle lol..the only reason not to consider drafting him is if Alex Barron continues to play well and if that stays the same we go DT with our first pick. the only way the rams should consider drafting a QB in the first round is if Sam Bradford finishes up the season in beast mode or something...other than that i dont think no Qb is worth a top ten pick..id like to hear your guys opinion on this post..please be nice i dont want to bad rep anyone=)
                                ill rep those that give good counter examples on why im wrong and rep those who can further explain my reasonings.. thanks

                                whos gonna be the qb of the rams in 2010
                                by DieHardRamsFan1381
                                i hate to say this but its time for a change at the qb position. i mean marc was great for a couple years but after that he became a second rate player at best. we should have had a new qb after the 2008 season. bulger is at best now a decent back up. then you got are other 2 qb kyle boller and keith null 2 guys who have the skills of ryan leaf. the problem im at is who is out there for the rams to draft or pick up in free agency. i mean the first overall pick is gonna be suh no if ands or but. so maybe with the 2 round pick we could get someone out there im sure there will be some decent qbs left. id like to see them maybe pick up mccoy or tebow i mean tebows got all the skills he just needs to sit a season or 2 and pick up on everything just like aaron rodgers. but i dont think the rams have time to wait on a qb to develope. then theres free agency but theres really no starting qb out there the rams could pick up. someone tell me whos gonna be the qb in 2010?

                                Anyone think we should forgo drafting a QB this year, and instead use all our picks to build a team around the QB first? We could bring in a FA QB, and use all our picks to get more weapons on both sides of the ball so that when we do draft a QB he'd have more talent around him enhancing his chances for success .. Just curious ..

                                This could be the deepest draft in quite awhile
                                by txramsfan
                                With all the talent that came back last year and with the CBA issue looming, lot's of JR's will be coming out this year making this draft a very deep draft.....which is good for an 0-6 Rams team that needs help at every position. That's right, every position....even RB. Not saying we need to go RB in Round 1 but this team needs playmakers, someone like a Sproles to help Jackson and on ST. The Rams have a chance to get better quick by picking high again in this draft.

                                This will be the year Deveaney earns his stripes. This is another chance like he had with the Falcons to get this team better quickly. With all the talent that this draft will have in it, it's imperative that the Rams start doing their homework now.
