Re: River's McVay/Phillips mock 2.0 ... with trade

Both Joe Thomas and Hayes are still playing at a high level, and 32 isn't over the hill for a lot of offensive linemen. I'd much prefer acquiring him through a trade than trying to sign him as a free agent, and he still has two years remaining on his contract. Thomas doesn't have the injury history ...

Re: Rams have virtually no unused cap dollars for flexibility

River.. I really like your last cuts, btw. Hayes can work in the 3-4, I think.. I think Westbrooks may be able to as well. Center needs an upgrade.. so.... draft one?

Re: Question regarding cap and FA WRs

He hasn't said he's not changing. He's said the change isn't as big of a deal as some would make it. Well, will just have to wait and see what he brings out on game day. Even the Denver team he took over moved to a 3/4, that's just what he does. It's nothing to get excited about, it won't be a pure...

Re: Rams have virtually no unused cap dollars for flexibility

Do we have any players who are candidates for cuts like Long/JL/Cook were last year? Saved us 25 million last time around. Once Sims, Barnes, Rhaney & Mason are off the books, the Rams will have closer to $50.mil in available CAP. Near 1/4 of that will go to Tru Johnson if we re-sign him, so I woul...

Re: River's McVay/Phillips mock 2.0 ... with trade

Wanted to avoid it becoming 'too much' with the OP, but the Cleveland trade could easily be enhanced with their desire to transition from a 3/4 base D to a 4/3 base now that Greg Williams has taken over as DC. Consider the Rams have multiple defensive players that are unlikely to fit with the new Ph...

Re: Question regarding cap and FA WRs

The only Rams free agents I care about re-signing are Easley, Zuerlein & Benny Cunningham, the rest can be replaced at less cost. Easley may just become the Rams starting LDE under Phillips' new 3/4 base D. Want to see how it's done, go to the Draft Forum. jmo. Pretty extensive stuff you've put up....

River's McVay/Phillips mock 2.0 ... with trade

2.0 marks my first trade in a mock this off-season. While I generally believe adding trades to mocks makes what is already a low percentage crap-shoot tougher to take in, and this may be no exception, I add this as other posters have been including trades. As mentioned in a previous post, our possib...

Re: Report: Rams to let "Fisher guys" Tru Johnson and Britt walk

Hayes, Britt - yes, but if Tru is a Fisher guy wouldn't AD, Gurley, Goff and any other player drafted since 2012 also be included. Remember Les Snead is still the GM. How about be...

Re: River's very early 2017 mock ...

My 3'rd round draft choice is based on a compensatory pick, as our normal 3'rd rd. pick was bundled as part of the trade to Tennessee for Goff. Should we get a 3'rd rd. compensatory pick, the Titans would get the compensation pick and we'd keep our regular 3'rd, if we don't get the comp pick, then t...

Big changes coming for our rudderless Rams, so the new HC is likely to design our forward direction with his own philosophy affecting the team from top to bottom.

Re: River's Day 7 of Free Agency Mock ...

Jalen Mills would be our FS, Craven is my hybrid OLB/SS Barron clone. Probably too high in the draft for a back-up or rotational player, but he's from USC, and Fisher likes those guys. He would give us solid depth behind Barron, maybe even Ayers in some sub packages. You maybe right about getting th...

We may have now reached a point where drafting a QB looks less likely, trading up would be too costly, none of them would start until the end of the season at best, … and then there is that whole salary raise to Foles that may require some justification.

Re: If Paxton Lynch is available do you take him?

If Lynch is all that's available of the top 3 QB's at 15, i'd probably look to trade back a few picks and then go after him. Just stay ahead of Houston's pick. jmo.

Re: Poll: Is there a 1st round pick worthy QB in this draft?

I picked 'other' because while I believe it would be great to find our next 'franchise' type QB, I don't want to spend our future trading up for what I see as several developmental types that probably don't help the team win right away. If any of the top 3 (Goff, Wentz or Lynch) fall to our # 15 pic...
