I can't tell you that. I think they're still in the mix. And I'll add this. Usually when a player takes several trips in free agency (like Britt and Henry Melton, who will visit the Rams) they're not getting the money they're looking for.
Jenkins has loads of talent, but he just needs to refine his technique and work on his ball skills. I think we're all expecting Williams to play more man-to-man and more press coverage, but we'll see. Jenkins looks good playing press coverage in practice, but that hasn't always shown in his games with the Rams.
Saffold counts only $4 million against the cap in 2014; Dunbar less than $900,0000. So once you add the extra $3 million from the Finnegan offset deal, the Rams should be at about $12 million right now.
I know there's interest from the Rams but not aware that he's visited at this point.
Yeah, I think he needs to do better tracking throws and adjusting to the ball in flight.
Don't believe so at this time. I think their focus is on Shaun Hill.
Yea, I thought they would add either a corner or safety in free agency. Obviously that has not happened and most of the bigger names are gone. I don't know if the Rams feel like Clemons is an upgrade over what they have now (McCleod). Clemons certainly hasn't gotten much play so far in free agency.
Yeah, it'll be close on Evans at 13. If they really like him they may have to move up.
Just kind of answered this on Clemons. I've thought all along the Rams would be more likely to get a corner in free agency and a safety in the draft. But they may end up getting neither in free agency.
Lee obviously had some injury issues last season, and his 40 time wasn't great at the combine. It seems as if he's fallen behind the bigger Evans in terms of draft stock.
I'd be fine with Shaun HIll and then draft a QB as well.
I don't think anything's changed, unless the QB-needy teams just aren't as high on the top 3 QBs as seemed to be the case entering the combine. But all along all signals have pointed to any trade up to No. 2 overall as being a last-second thing _ something that may not fully materialize until the day of the draft. It's still 51 days till the draft, so plenty of time for something to develop.
You can't really say that until after we see how these guys play. And I think you should add Taylor Leewan into your group.
Yeah, I don't have a read on Watkins, in terms of how much the Rams really like him. I know they like him, but again how much. I do think he's under consideration for them at No. 2. But let's face it, this regime has spent four draft picks on WR in the past two drafts, taking a first rounder (Austin), second-rounder (Quick), third-rounder (Bailey), and fourth-rounder (Givens). I'm not sure they see the position as a pressing need _ at least not as much as most others do.
Pocket passer. Bit of unusual delivery. Not the greatest arm strength. Didn't play at all last season. Hasn't played much since 2010 because Stafford has stayed healthy. Pretty good accuracy. Smart, good intangibles.
No, I don't think they're sitting in the meeting rooms saying: "Well, we don't need Watkins because our offensive coordinator won't know how to use him."
At this point, Sanchez is still property of the New York Jets. Pretty sure the Rams don't want to trade for him.
1.) I think he's shown enough to at least be considered as a possible starter. He played some tough fronts in his four starts, particularly Arizona and Seattle.
Sorry Marv from Sacramento, forgot to answer your other questions. 2.) Again, it will be close on Evans at 13. 3.) That's all to be determined. I don't think the Rams know yet. 4.) Rams didn't think he would have been a good scheme fit, which is a bit puzzling to me since Verner played so well (Pro Bowl) for Gregg Williams last year in Tennessee.
Clinton-Dix certainly has more of the range and free safety skills that Pryor.
I was in the draft room in 2001, a year the Rams had 3 first-round picks. But I wasn't in the room where they had there overall rankings posted.. I was in a smaller room where Martz, Armey decided on the pick. Last year, Mike Silver _ who has known Jeff Fisher for a long time _ was upstairs, but I'm not sure if he was in the room where the draft boards is set up. In general, I don't think the Rams or any other teams want that kind of info out.
