  • 2005 Draft

    assuming the standings continue as they are and the Rams win the division, I don't foresee them winning any playoff games with that defense and the o-line ( but I hope I'm wrong ).

    but, let's assume they lose in the wildcard round ( which they would be playing in due to record ).

    that would give them the 22nd pick in the 2005 draft. who do you think the Rams will pick, or who would you like to see them draft? ( and don't pick someone who is likely not going to be around when the Rams pick ).

    At this point, probably Jammal Brown. But it's hard to say until we know what juniors will be declaring.

      I'm hoping Brown is the pick. If he's not there (which is a good possibility), I say we go with Eric Winston (if he comes out) or Wes Britt.

      In the second round, I'd love to see us go with Barrett Ruud or Lance Mitchell for a little more size at MLB. I'd prefer Ahmad Brooks out of Virginia, but I think he'll be gone by the time we pick in the second.

      With the Miami pick in the 3rd round, let's take a CB like Bryant McFadden or Derrick Johnson.

      With our pick in the 3rd, how about either a big OLB like D'Qwell Jackson, Jonathen Pollard or Demarcus Ware OR a FS like Ernest Shazor.
      The more things change, the more they stay the same.

          I think Greenway in the 2nd might be a reach, and Harris & Clinkscale will both be gone. But hey, if it turns out like you got it, I'd call it a successful draft. Hopefully, Martz gives you a call before next April, ZZR.

            If guys like D'Brickashaw Ferguson of Virginia and Jon Scott of Texas come out early, then I doubt we'll have any problem securing a stud tackle in the first round. The real question is whether or not our front office would do it. They haven't devoted a day one pick to an offensive lineman since Pace.

              He's the best free safety prospect this season, and probably the best safety prospect behind Nicholson - no way he lasts into the late third round, IMO.

                  If the Mike Martz era has taught me anything, it's never guess who or what the Rams will draft because they won't draft what everyone knows they need.

                    Don't be sorry! I love the pre-draft coverage almost as much as the regular season. Looking at incoming young talent and trying to strategize what your team could get to improve their team is quite appealing, methinks.

                    Anyways, I get a lot of my info from various web pages. The Sporting News has a good but not free section dedicated to draft coverage. I always thought DraftCrazy.com had some good info, and I know some others have said that NFLDraftBlitz.com has been good, but some of it has turned to pay as well.

                    True. Who would have predicted, besides Avenger, that the Rams were going to take a RB in the first round? Who saw the Jimmy Kennedy selection? Sometimes no matter how much you plan, when talent falls, teams take a risk with it. Who knows, in a season or two, if Lewis or Pickett leave in free agency and Kennedy steps up to be a playmaker on the interior of the line, we might look back at that pick and say, "Wow, that was really questionable at the time but it sure paid off." Then again, we could look at it and just as likely say, "No one understood that pick then, and now the Rams look like idiots for making it." Only time will tell.

                      I predicted they would pick a RB or a TE in the first round this year, but I didn't catch the Jimmy Kennedy pick at all. I was all about trying to get Trufant that year. A good corner would be nice to have.

                      I don't watch college ball much so my draft knowledge is limited to whatever research I feel inclined to do. I can't believe you guys are already looking ahead to the draft.

                          Can you imagine the uproar if they spend an early draftpick on a defensive lineman, though?

                          We can all make our predictions, but it's going to be tough to really make it accurate until we have an idea of who's going to test the market a month before the draft. If we can secure a good tackle in free agency, we can spend our first rounder on a linebacker or cornerback. Who knows, with the potential depth of this year's OT class, we might be able to do that anyways.

                            There are several safety prospects that I'd list ahead of him. The only safety I see going in the first round is Thomas Davis. Brodney Pool, Ernest Shazor, Darnell Bing and Donte Nicholson could go in the 2nd round. While it might be a tad bit far fetched for him to last to the 20+ picks, it's not impossible.

                            Also, Donte Nicholson is a strong safety. Thomas Davis, Brodney Pool, Josh Bullocks, and Oshiomogo Atogwe are all free safeties that could be taken above James Butler.

                            If Butler wasn't available, then Josh Bullocks could be available in the late 3rd round and good be a big playmaker on this defense.

                              At this point, I'm looking at seniors. Have any of the junior prospects you listed made it official that they'll be available in April? Last I heard, Davis was still on the fence. And I disagree about taking Oshiomogo Atogwe over Butler. Out of the senior class, I rate Butler as the highest free safety prospect. But again, when you start throwing potential underclassmen in there, then it's different.

                                By Anthony Bafaro
                                December 20th 2013

                                Hello friends. Podcast addiction has kept me from the keyboard for quite some time, but I was recently inspired by Rams Addiction loyalist, Cesar Noel, so I decided to take to the typing. He introduced me to a new addiction on Tuesday nightĖa 2014 NFL draft simulator.

                                Sorry, Iím not giving you the link to the simulator until the end of the article. I canít force you to read this epic narrative, but if the only reason you came here was to use me as a gateway to the mental masturbation machine, youíre at least going to have to scroll through it all first, because, well, Iím kind of a dick.

                                First off, a brief description of the simulator. You can pick any team and run its draft based on current draft position. You can make trades, but itís somewhat limited. When youíre on the clock, you CANNOT propose trades; you can only accept or ignore offers made to you. No negotiating; take it or leave it. When other teams are on the clock, you can propose a trade to that specific team, no others. Again, no negotiating. They either accept or reject the trade, and if they reject it they immediately trade with another team or draft a player. So if you need the deal to go down, you better pony up enough picks to make sure it happens on the first try.

                                Last thing before we get started. As you all know, free agency comes first. For the sake of this exercise, the free agent moves I manifested in my head went as follows:

                                I cut Cortland Finnegan, designated post June 1st, which saved $6M.
                                I cut Harvey Dahl, which saved $4M.
                                I re-signed Rodger Saffold (to play guard, of course).
                                I went hard, and signed Jairus Byrd to play FS.

                                Iíll get into this more once we get closer to free agent time, but I think Jairus Byrd is the single most important free agent target for the Rams this offseason. With him, they have a stud, ball-hawking, free-roaming center-fielderĖa piece that I believe takes this defense from enigmatic to elite, regardless of what else is added. Without him, they almost have to draft Clinton-Dix. Nothing against Ha-Ha, but being handcuffed to a player who could go top-ten, but might be 20th in terms of BPA, seriously limits your draft-day flexibility.

                                I really donít want to spend 500 words defending whether or not these moves are financially feasible, so Iíll try to keep this concise.

                                The Rams have about $12M in dead money coming off the books, but most of that will be consumed by pay raises for several key players (Sam Bradford, Chris Long, Jake Long, and Jared Cook). The money I saved with the aforementioned cuts essentially represents the total cap space I have to work withĖat least right nowĖbut keep in mind Kevin Demoff is a contract boss.

                                Demoff isnít big on big...

                                by jerseyramsfan
                                Seems to me we really cant afford to waist one of our first four picks on a backup runningback. That being said I see Glen Coffee out of Alabama possibly being around in round 5. I saw the kid play against Georgia who had a pretty good D last season. He looked great running for 218 yards against them. What do you guys think?
