  • NFL DRAFT: With 41st pick, Rams select LAMARCUS JOYNER (DB, FSU)

    Rams surrendered a 5th rounder to move from 44 to 41 and take their hard hitting DB!

    STRENGTHS: Despite his smaller frame, Joyner plays like he's 6-2 and 225 pounds, hitting like a truck in run support. He has bounced between safety and cornerback, showing NFL scouts his versatility to help out anywhere in the secondary.

    Aggressive striker who only knows how to play full-speed, showing excellent timing to make plays on the ball. Plays fast with natural acceleration to go from 0 to 60 in a flash, displaying impressive closing burst. Possesses the build of a running back and loves to deliver punishing hits with his violent playing style. He also adds value as a kick returner and looks natural as a ballcarrier.

    Excellent awareness and instincts with quick diagnosis skills as well as the balance, agility and speed to handle coverage duties.

    WEAKNESSES: Though he plays with desirable aggression and intensity, he can be overaggressive at times, biting on fakes and allowing receivers to gain a step. While playing with no fear, does lack ideal size for safety. Where will his ideal position prove to be in the NFL?

      Another one of my favourite players in this draft. Joyner was pointed out to me and I immediately fell in love with his tape. Joyner is tough and sticks his nose in the ball. Always around the ball making plays. This guy is going to be REAL good.

        Rams trade up to 41 to take LaMarcus Joyner
        Posted by Darin Gantt on May 9, 2014, 7:58 PM EDT

        The Rams just couldn’t resist making a move.

        After standing pat last night and improving both lines with Greg Robinson and Aaron Donald, they traded up to the 41st overall pick tonight for cornerback LeMarcus Joyner.

        The pick originally belonged to the Bills, who got a fifth-rounder to move back three spots.

        Joyner will play corner, but has the versatility to play inside or as a safety in nickel.

        He’s undersized (5-foot-8), but a hard hitter and a four-year starter who will add some edge to the Rams defense (such that they need it).

            So is Joyner going to play nickel or are we looking for a lot of versatile players who can play multiple positions?

              I have no problem at all with that pick. Need meets value. We need both corner and safety, and if he can play a bit of both, all the better. My #1 thing for tonight and tomorrow is that i hope coach and snead use our picks to trade up to get what they really want. None of us are expert enough to really know who that right guy is, but if you have confidence in the guys running the team, then you want them to be aggressive in going after what they really want, especially with the extra picks we have.

              Meanwhile, SOSA, please provide all of us with tomorrow's winning lottery ticket numbers, since your psychic powers are truly extraordinary.

                Joyner: "I'm a defensive back. I don't like to limit myself. I'll play corner. I'll play nickle. I'll play safety."

                  Agreed GC I hope the only 6th and 7th round picks we use are the comp picks that we can't trade. Keep moving up if there's somebody you want we've focused the last two drafts on quantity lets get the quality here.
                  The restoration is complete!

                    As I said before, first round football player, third round body. No complaints. He may lose some jump balls, but he'll make some big plays too. Obviously, the Rams really liked him, as they traded up to get him.

                      I like this...

                      First thing we did to improve our defense was to fire Tim Walton.
                      Second thing we did was to hire Gregg Williams.
                      Third, we drafted Donald.
                      Now, we have Joyner.

                      Why do I have this feeling that we will have THE best D in the NFL? And why do I feel like the Rams defense will be the reason there will be new rules considered next offseason?

                        They should have taken Jordan Matthews. He's going to make us regret passing on him, just like Alshon Jeffery.

                            Yes, that's quite a bounty!

                            Err... wrong word. Never mind. Nothing to see here!
