The Draft Approacheth

If you are like me you are geetting excited about the draft. Also if you are like me you scour message boards, blogs, nfl web sites, draft blogs, the works. The grea debate seems to be need vs impact player vs whatever someone dreams up at this point.

If the Rams stay at #2 and don't trade down for additional picks, you have the following choices:

1) Chris Long, DE
2) Jake Long, OT
3) Glenn Dorsey, DT
4) Vernon Gholston, DE/OLB
5) Darren McFadden, RB

For this debate lets exclude McFadden.

The Facts:
The Rams cut DE, James Hall so with Litle coming back from surgery the Rams are very thin at DE. That being said Orlando Pace is coming off a triceps injury and has some years behind him now. Alex Barron is solid, but not dominant thus far. Carriker was solid as a rookie and Ryan flashed promise. Wroten and Glover aren't starters at this point.

So Long & Gholston could fill the glaring need at DE, Jake Long eventual succesor at OT, and Dorsey if he transitions to the pros could immediately command a double team and free up others on the DL.

It's early so i'm going to continue to seek info on all the above mentioned players. I'm not a fan of workout warriors, and most of the rumors are false at this juncture. So it's fun to debate but let's make sure we have all the info before proceeding.

Ram On!

Thanks Ike!

To my favorite Ram of all time Rev Ike:

Thanks for all the smiles you have brought to my face all these years. For all the terribel teams you were on but still gave it your all. For the happiest non family related day of my life, SuperBowl XXXIV. To showing that even in this day and age a tremendous athlete can display humility & class. You made me proud to be a Ram fan, for that all I can do is say thanks.

Forever a Ram #80
