Not that I'm aware of at this point.
I think one of the best things about Jeff Fisher's work in Tennessee was that he had the reputation of squeezing everything he could out of the talent he had. We'll see if that's the case in St. Louis. But there are still a lot of holes to fill on the roster. No predictions from me just yet.
My, we're an optimistic bunch today.
No. But I think they should have a Jeff Fisher mustache day at the dome, and hand out adhesive mustaches for the fans to wear.
I've heard nothing on Dennis Dixon since his visit last week. He's the most recent free-agent QB to visit Rams Park. Oh by the way, A.J. Feeley and Kellen Clemens are still available.
Have to make sure the value's there.
Certainly not until after the 2012 season.
RG3 certainly looks like he's an exciting talent. By why give up on Bradford? I mean he was NFL offensive rookie of the year in his rookie year.
No. 6 is too high for Decastro. Plus, I think it's been pretty well established that Fisher would rather not taken an offensive lineman in the first round. He didn't do it once in 16 full seasons with Houston/Tennessee. So it'll be very interesting if Kalil's there at No. 6 as was the case in the P-D's latest mock draft from last Sunday. Do the Rams take him or trade down.
Justin Blackmon was the only wde receiver to visit yesterday. And Rueben Randle of LSU is coming in later this week. But I'm sure they won't be the last wideouts to visit. Remember, the Rams are staggering their draft visits over a 2-week period, not in a 2_ or 3-day period like Devaney did.
Interesting question. Randle certainly is an intriguing prospect. But if you pass on Blackmon, there's no guarantee that you can get Randle. He may not get past Houston or New England at the bottom for the first round.
@midnighter67 Tell him that you walked away from your computer for a few minutes, and someone commandeered (sp?) it over to the Rams chat?
Hey, I'm new to this format as well. I thought you could only put 4 names on it. Sorry. . . .
Floyd could be a top 10 pick. Wright figures to be the third receiver taken, so he won't reach the Rams in the second round. I'm beginning to have my doubts as well that Randle will be there at No. 33. So they may have to do some moving in the draft order.
It's tough to find 4-3 outside linebackers these days. I think Jeff Fisher would agree. But Mychal Kendricks (California) might be an option at 39. Maybe Lavonte David (Nebraska). If you wait till the top of the third for either of those guys they might be gone.
I'm not aware of any. But I'll try to ask. I know they are looking at some players from smaller colleges.
Well, there is Steve Smith, but he's not exactly a grizzled veteran with five years experience.
Yes, the Rams are one of four teams interested in signing Simpson. Unless "Maximum" Roger Goodell hands down his suspension in the next day or two, I think Simpson could decide on his next team before his suitors know how many games he'll be suspended for _ although I think the expectation is four games.
I'd say 60-40 yes at this point.
Well, I'd be very surprised if they didn't come out of the draft w/one or two linebackers. So far, I've only been able to identify one LB making a draft visit _ Cal's Mychal Kendricks, but I'm sure they're looking at lots of others.
He's a middle 'backer, and I think money was a consideration since cap space is now limited.
The Rams have Kendricks, Hoomanawanui, new addition Matt Mulligan (blocking specialist), plus roster candidates Ben Guidugli (more of an H-back type), St. Louisan Mike McNeill, and DeMarco Cosby. The Rams seem to be looking more for younger players, so I don't think Shockey is what they're looking for.
