  • How do you see our WR corps looking by the start of the season?

    What are your opinions on our WR depth chart by the time the season rolls around?

    Personally, I think it will go like:

    Wr 1: Laurent Robinson
    Wr 2: Donnie Avery
    Wr 3: Mardy Gilyard
    Wr 4: Brandon Gibson
    Wr 5: Brooks Foster
    Wr 6: Keenan Burton


    Maybe the real question is, who lines up as our #1?

    I can think of many different outcomes in the depth chart.

    Robinson can be #1 if he can stay healthy
    Avery if he can make catches and avoid fumbles
    the list goes on..

    You forgot about Danny Amendola by the way, I can only hope this guy can turn out to be a Wes Welker.

      No Danny Amendola?

        IMO, other than S Jax, Danny Amendola was our only consistent offensive threat for much of last season. I can definitely see how he could move down the depth chart, but not off of it.

        My biggest question, and this isn't directed solely at you RockinRam, but why does everyone give Brooks Foster a spot over Ammendola or Burton? I realize he was hurt, but as of right now he has shown exactly zero to earn a spot. Sure Burton has dissappointed (though not by much for a 4th round pick), but he has shown more than Foster IMO.

        Overall I like this group of young guns, hopefully they will gel with The Samchise and we will have an actual NFL passing attack!

          Mardy Gilyard won't be the number 3 by the time the season starts. He's going to miss the next fews OTAs finishing his college degree. Wide receiver is one of the hardest positions for a rookie to work themselves into in the NFL and they need all the practices they can get. I think Amendola will stay on the roster and Brooks Foster could be the odd man out.

          Wr 1: Laurent Robinson
          Wr 2: Donnie Avery
          Wr 3: Brandon Gibson
          Wr 4: Danny Amendola
          Wr 5: Mardy GIlyard
          Wr 6: Keenan Burton

          Although I expect Gilyard to move up the chart as the season progresses.

            I'm thinking:

            Wr 1: Robinson
            Wr 2: Avery
            Wr 3: Gibson
            Wr 4: Gilyard
            Wr 5: Foster
            Wr 6: Amendola or Burton

            That last slot will be one of those two. I suspect Amendola will do better on special teams, so I'd give him the nod over Burton. Burton's medical risk stigma might catch up to him this year.

              It's pretty much a toss-up for the #1 spot although one would think Avery would step-up! What we need is for the 6 players listed above to play with the same heart and determination that Danny Amendola shows every time he's on the field.

                Oops, forgot about Danny Boy.



                Yeah, in that case he would take the #5 WR spot, moving Brooks Foster down one spot.



                I wouldn't put Donnie Avery in at the #1 WR spot. I feel that Laurent Robinson has more potential to be that big time WR, while Avery is more of a flanker or slot guy.

                  1. Laurent Robinson
                  2. Donnie Avery
                  3. Brandon Gibson
                  4. Danny Amendola
                  5. Keenan Burton?

                  My reasoning is that if healthy, Laurent Robinson is the clear-cut number one. After that, I'm reasonably confident that Gibson and Avery both make the roster, but the question is which would be the better pairing with Robinson: Avery's speed or Gibson's sure hands? Amendola comes in at no. 4 because of his effort after the catch and because he's the best return man we've had in quite a while. After that, who knows? Burton offers consistency but seems to lack big play talent; in that respect, he and Gibson strike me as very similar. Maybe Mardy Gilyard takes that fifth spot. I don't think Brooks Foster does, but that's just a hunch since we haven't really gotten to see him play. I also don't think we'll carry six receivers based on last season's roster.

                    I'd agree Robinson is the top guy if healthy. Gibson vs Avery .. apples and oranges, hard to predict. Good description of Burton's pros and cons. Where I perhaps differ is on Foster and Gilyard. Foster is a big extremely strong wide receiver, who is very physical (remember his bench press reps?), and can and will BLOCK! I believe he makes the roster no problem if he's healthy. Everything about Gilyard leads me to believe he'll contribute sooner than later. Even the fact he may miss some time due to academic circumstances, this kid played his best against the best competition. Mardy seems to have "it." He already been through more adversity than most of our draft picks and come out on top. I believe his fearlessness, elusiveness, huge desire, and not inconsiderable physical skills will translate early if given the chance. Amendola could end up the odd man out as Gilyard could replace him as a return specialist. Hopefully Danny finds a way to stick. He was one of the bright spots in a very dark season last year - Danny and Jackson were my favorite offensive players on offense ..

                        LeBron will decide that the Knicks and Bulls aren't for him and even the whole sport of basketball isn't for him. He will come to the NFL and join the Rams and take us to the Superbowl.

                        so....

                        Lebron
                        Robinson
                        Avery
                        Gilyard

                          I bet Florida State has a deeper and better WR corp than the Rams have at the start of the season. However, at the start of the year it will be Robinson/Avery 1-2 but by the end of the year it will be Robinson/Guilyard.

                            4. Gilllyard
                            5. Amendola
                            6. Foster

                            Burton hasn't done enough for me to make the team and he is hurt too often. Foster is bigger more physical more upside.

                              I'll need to wait and see what these rookies have before this. Our receiving corps is very wide open and I can't rule out a Brandon McRae or Curry coming in and taking a spot. Me being my ridiculously optimistic self, don't think our receiving corps will suck as some like to say every chance they get.

                              What we saw last year was injuries and rookies. Period. Don't see how anyone can make any kind of judgement off of that but they do anyway...what can you do..

                                is it me or does anyone think we could use like a good veteran wr to help develope or young wr corps. i mean i like avery and robinson but the rest im not to pleased with. i mean gilyard i think could be a good #2 wr but i think avery needs to step it up this year and prove hes the #1 wr. i think they should have signed a good veteran wr like antionio bryant,torry holt, and maybe t.o. i know all the problems hes had in the past but i think he would make a good weapon for bradford or they could have traded for brandon marshall and vincent jackson i mean their both great wr who put up top number. but thats just what i think.

                                Keenan Burton will like be cut next season
                                by richtree
                                Burton is suppossedly a speedster yet he does nothing in the return game.

                                He isn't shifty enough to make people miss. Burton quickly lost is Danny Amendola who has a huge heart.

                                I know WR screen are boring and don't get much, but Amendola's catch and desire gets a few yards.

                                Next season it is more than likely we bring in another WR.

                                That gives us the following:

                                These 4 are staying --
                                Avery
                                Gibson
                                Robinson
                                Amendola

                                With a Free agent Pick up or in the draft that gives us 5 WR's and a few guys on the outside looking in.

                                They are:

                                Burton, Martin, and Carter.

                                With Brooks Foster coming back from injury that leaves 4 guys for one spot. We also have an extra 5th round pick already so we may pick another WR up in the later rounds.


                                In anyone we are gonna keep Brooks Foster and that gives us 6 WR's/before draft day...

                                Does anyone disagree with this ???????? I doubt it ..

                                We need a good WR and games like this hurt even more when Sam doesn't have a go to guy.

                                Do you guys think we will just stay pat with the receivers we have now already and give the players one more year to pan out. Because Robinson showed flashes last year and Gibson is still really young. Not to mention if Avery could ever stay healthy he could be a solid #2 receiver.

                                Thoughts?

                                by thermobee
                                Does anyone agree that we really dont need to draft a receiver early in next year's nfl draft. Not only that I think we actually are not going to be able to dress all of our quality receivers in the beginning of next year. I think the FO has done a great job picking receivers from under the radar that can have an impact on this team.

                                PS I would muc rather we draft a change of pace back to spell out SJ.
