Re: Odds are very much against A Donald being worth big money

I love AD too, but if we can get two top 5 picks in consecutive years, plus pay them about half the money we'd have to give Donald, then it'd make sense to at least, think this thing all the way through. Or if we could trade AD for Batman and Superman they would probably play for minimum salary sin...

Re: Rookie DE Justin Lawler Believes He Is a Great Fit For Rams

Lawler looks more like a camp body to me. Slow off the edge, 240 pounds. Doubt he makes the final 53. Thank you! I am thouroughly disappointed in this pick in and of itself. Then add to that, they took Lawler over Joe Ostman, who they also had a pre-draft meeting with. All I'll say is, Ostman looke...

Re: 53 MAN ROSTER & PRACTICE SQUAD

I don’t agree with RB Justin Davis, or S Isaiah Johnson or LB Bryce Hager. I think all three have a good shot at making the team. The rest seem pretty much on point. CB Peterson may be a long shot as well. Well Peterson is the only DB in the entire NFL who can say, "I've picked off Jimmy God-appoll...

Anybody know what happened to this guy? I thought he was a baller, but I know he was released last season. Was he released due to injury or other reasons? Any chance we bring him back or did I see that he was picked up by Seattle?
Yes he was picked up by Seattle.

Re: John Kelly looks DOPE - Kamara-esque

The comparison to Kamara is way off, don't see it at all. I like Davis a lot and think he easily holds his spot. That is, if he can actually hold the ball. And that's a huge "if". Once you show a penchant for fumbling, you rarely get the opportunities to prove you're over it. Teams usually move on ...

1.) Hurst is a talent I strongly considered if Rams trade up. Think Snead is willing to move 2019 first round pick for the right prospect in 2018. It appears Eagles pick at the end of round one is available. Rams could jump Giants in round 2 and take Crosby? Also would ensure the selection of Hurst...

Instead of unpredictable mocks starting at 87, how about this: With the Rams having 7 picks this year, list 7 players that you think the Rams will chose (we'll probably picks 6-8 players depending on trades).

TRADE UP! TWO 4TH ROUNDERS FOR A 2ND AND TRADE THE 3RD ROUNDER AND A 6TH FOR A LATE 2ND ROUND PICK! This would give us two second round picks to use on an ILB and an OLB & pass rusher who could both be starters. Then we still have another 4th round pick left and three more 6th round picks to add de...

Re: Why this draft sets up for the Rams so well

I've got a feeling Les Snead isn't done trading. I believe we'll trade up to get the Edge Rusher we covet, rather than waiting for one to fall in our laps. That would seem to be the best strategy, given the make-up of this current roster, IMO.

Not sure the Rams will draft a RB at all, let alone the 3rd or 4th round. If they do decide to pull the trigger on one, however, I'd hope it'd be with one of their 6th round picks. Not likely to get a polished plug and play, 3 down back at that point, but that wouldn't be what we'd be looking for an...
