End of OTA's

Quick thoughts as the Rams finish OTA's:

Injuries worry me somewhat. More of the potentially nagging injuries like hamstrings, and ankle sprains.

I really feel bad for Mark Setterstrom who re injured his surgically repaired triceps.

With Steven Jackson rehabbing his injured back, I didn't hear much chatter about any of the RB's, which was an issue to begin with.

Bradford seems to fit the part as a potential franchise QB.

This team seems to be developing a good chemistry, and the vets that were brought in seem to have clear leadership qualities.

All should be quiet until July 31st when the Rams open training camp.

The Rams full squad has been active during OTA's. Most eyes are on rookie Sam Bradford and how he is getting acclimated to the West Coast offense and the speed and complexity of the NFL. Most signs are encouraging: he has displayed a take charge leadership in the huddle and around teammates. His accuracy seems to be a real strength, connecting on a few long plays with the receivers in stride. His accuracy has been so impressive that WR, Brooks Foster said he has never had a QB put the ball exactly where it should be so frequently.

The only negative seems to be the mounting list of injuries. Injuries have seriously slowed the progress of many of the younger Rams players in the past. Rodger Saffold who many believe will start at RT sooner than later suffered a mild sprained MCL, and most likely will miss the rest of the OTA's.

Its really, really early but all signs seem to be positive these days at Rams Park.
