    I voted for Murphy and Gilyard because other than the top two picks, I believe they will be able to contribute right away. Start right away - probably not, but contribute yes. I do believe both Mardy and Jerome will be on the field of play alot in 2010 ..Onobun and Selvie could be steals - we'll just have to wait and see.

      Yep, I think they will also contribute right away. I think Murphy might start right away, due to the lack of any legit starters in our cornerback corps besides Bartell.





      And also for voters, please vote only two players. Should of made this a public poll, and see who can't count...;)

        I'll go with Saffold and Selvie. Saffold because I appreciate the commitment to improving the line. Selvie because he has demonstrated abilities. I'd rather have a guy who is a bit undersized but productive, instinctive, and high motor over a guy who just fits the physical profile.

          I had some trouble picking, but I went with Saffold and Onobun

          Saffold because I like solidifying our o-line a lot, I was a bit shocked at first as I had no clue the Rams would go that direction, but he gives us nice insurance if Jason Smith has trouble staying on the field or playing LT, and gives us another option besides Barron.

          Onobun I picked because it was gutsy to grab a guy who caught two passes. He has a lot of potential, and the Rams swung for the fences by picking him. Previous regimes seemed content with mediocre special teams players in the later rounds, but this one tried to hit it big with a guy with potential. I liked that.

          I also liked Selvie and Gilyard, but really overall I was pretty happy with this draft and what they tried to do.

            I voted for Selvie, a guy who could've been a 1st round draft pick...someone with infinite potential at a key position on Defense. My second pick was Gilyard, I think he's going to be a dynamic WR and he's a class act as well.
            Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

              Well considering you limited me to only two picks, I went Gilyard and Saffold. Gilyard is gonna be a play maker, can't wait to see him blaze on the turf, and Saffold because we have to protect the "Samchise".

              But of course you gotta love the Fendi Onubon pick for his potentional, the Murphy pick for his physical style of play, and the Selvie pick for his production in college.

                Mardy Gilyard would be second in my book with Onobun a close third

                  Saffold and Gilyard. Help ol' Sammy boy out.

                  After that I love the Murphy pick and all the pass rushers. If Spags and Flajole can teach these boys up then our pass D should be a strength of the team.

                    Murphy and Gilyard. The idea of an "extremely physical" corner (not my words) is especially attractive seeing as how the secondary has been lacking for a very long time.

                    Gilyard? Well, I think he's gonna be a star. Probably my favorite pick of all.
                    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

                      i love gilyard, he was an obvious choice for me.
                      i found the second choice tough between murphy, saffold and onubon.
                      saffold will help protect sam the ram, onubon is a complete beast of an athlete, and you gotta love a "hit you in the mouth" corner like murphy.

                        I think our most solid pick was Saffold in the 2nd. I like the fact that the FO took a second rounder to build around our future QB. Another pick I really liked was Murphy. He is a solid CB and I think he's just a much more athletic and beter version of J. Wade. Heck, he's even got the dreads lol.

                          I'll ditto Fleece on this one. Because.....

                          ....I like the reports coming out of the draft that teams were lining up to grab Saffold if he got past the Rams. That gives me more confidence that actual football people are making the calls.

                          ....yes, yes, Selvie is a one-trick pony; and will probably never be more than a one-trick pony. But DANG, what a trick!
                          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                              I went with Gilyard and Murphy since I think Saffold is a homerun like our first one anyway. Those two guys will develop nicely and will contribute quit a bit in our future of rebuilding this team. Plus I like both of their playing styles... Not so sure on the rest of our draft after the 4th pick..

                                Bradford makes good first impression

                                By R.B. FALLSTROM , 04.30.10, 04:12 PM EDT
                                ST. LOUIS -- Sam Bradford was so nervous about his first NFL practice, he woke up before an alarm clock set for 6 a.m.
                                Add in a bubbly enthusiasm evident by his high five with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur during the opening practice of a three-day rookie minicamp Friday, and the St. Louis Rams have to feel pretty good about investing the first pick of the draft on the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma.


                                Bradford's summary: "It was a blast out there today."
                                After the first of two practices Friday, coach Steve Spagnuolo complimented Bradford's poise and take-charge attitude. The Rams issued abbreviated playbooks to their draft picks last weekend, and Spagnuolo said Bradford appeared to have absorbed everything.
                                Bradford refused to campaign for the starting job and Spagnuolo was noncommittal about the Rams' plans for easing him into the lineup, judging that question way too premature.
                                "You're way ahead of me," Spagnuolo said. "We don't have to play a game yet. Nothing preconceived."




                                That's fine with Bradford.
                                "I think it's way too early to start making those type of statements," Bradford said. "I've only gone through one practice and I've only seen a very small portion of the playbook. All I know is I'm going to show up and help this team win."
                                It was much easier to take charge with this group, too. The Rams invited 67 players to the minicamp, including 11 draft picks, but most players will be headed home after the tryout.
                                "I wanted to see his command of the huddle, his interaction with teammates," Spagnuolo said. "He's not around a bunch of veterans, so that's another test. He kind of stepped to the forefront, you could tell he was the guy that's done this before."
                                Bradford made a one-of-the-guys impression on the other draft picks when he texted them all to say he was glad to be teammates. Then he impressed them on the field.
                                "All in all it's like we've got a connection," said wide receiver Mardy Gilyard, a fourth-round pick from Cincinnati. "We're developing a nice little relationship."
                                Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, the Rams' second-round pick out of Indiana, is Bradford's roommate for the weekend. Bradford even scores high on that account.
                                "Oh, he's very clean," Saffold said. "The first day is usually the day where, you know, 'Maybe I shouldn't have had...

                                Bradford not the only one battling to start
                                by eldfan
                                QUESTION: With the full squad set to begin working out at Rams Park tomorrow, what position battle(s) do you see as most compelling during this yearís training camp?

                                JIM THOMAS

                                As of Thursday, it became clear that the left tackle position was up for grabs between last yearís No. 2 overall pick, Jason Smith, and this yearís second-round pick, Rodger Saffold. The coaching staff likes Saffoldís athleticism as a pass blocker, and Smith isnít even practicing fully as he comes back from a June fractured toe. At right guard, versatile vet Adam Goldberg enters camp as the favorite, but Hank Fraley and John Greco are in the mix as well. And of course, the No. 1 question entering camp is when does Sam Bradford take the reins from A.J. Feeley at quarterback?

                                BILL COATS

                                The most obvious area is wide receiver: Who will emerge as the go-to guy? What five or six of the 10 contenders will make the final roster? But the competition at right guard is wide open, between John Greco, Roger Allen, Hank Fraley and Adam Goldberg. That should be entertaining, too.

                                BRYAN BURWELL

                                Suddenly the most interesting battle is on the offensive line, where we all watch to see how healthy Jason Smith will be and whether he or rookie Rodger Saffold will be at RT or LT.

                                JEFF GORDON

                                Itíll be interesting to see the wide receivers sort out. So many guys are coming back from one injury or another. Several of these guys flashed ability last season, but does anybody have staying power? Can Mardy Gilyard become an impact rookie? Will Sam Bradford have enough to play with?

                                KATHLEEN NELSON

                                The sort-out at wide receiver should be fun. With so many youngsters and guys returning from injury, the depth chart should be in a state of flux from one practice to the next. And what happens if they bring in a veteran/mentor? Just FYI: Brooks Foster made the nicest grab at Friday morningís practice: one-handed, tip-toeing along the sideline, managed to stay inbounds.

                                We are jinxed by the TE position.

                                Scott Linehan wasted a ton of picks trying fill the position!

                                DeSpags is close behind.

                                I know looking back is easy to do but the facts are the facts.

                                RAMS 2010 Draft:
                                ------------------

                                1. Sam Bradford (excellent pick)

                                2. Rodger Saffold (surprise pick?)
                                We could have selected Rob Gronkowski TE

                                3. Jerome Murphy
                                We could have selected Jimmy Graham TE

                                4. Mardy Gilyard
                                We could have selected Aaron Hernandez TE

                                5. Michael Hoomanawanie TE

                                6. Fendi Onobun TE

                                How about 2011's draft? we use our 2nd pick on...you guessed it another TE Lance Kendricks. Schools still out on him.

                                This is just one example of how poor our scouts and coaching staffs ability to recognize talent is.

                                We have wasted so many draft picks on TE's the last 5 or 6 years it's sickening.
