We'll see but I don't think they make the trade unless they are confident of wrapping him up on a long term deal.
Lets hope so....NE gave up on him for a reason and it wasn't performance.
NE doesn't pay top dollar for that position.

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

It's Donald's agents that concern me. I don't know if they are reasonable people. So far it's Donald I think that has lost out. I think the Rams wanted to pay him last year. But if his agent is foolish and self-serving, and I have some reason to think he is, then I don't want the Rams to sign him a...

Re: Did the Rams Add Enough to Compete for the NFC Title?

They competed for it last year. The team only got better this year. Every year is completely different in the NFL. The Rams added some talent, but it's also older as far as the players who remain from last year, and one year can make a big difference at the NFL level. Whitworth and Sullivan are a y...

Ok, so the OP is asking fans in a chat forum to explain why a GM and HC selected a given player??? Really? The guys in that draft room scouted, interviewed, and researched these guys to no end, and you're asking some arm chair amateurs why the team liked a given prospect? The only thing worse than t...

If they trade for a couple more pro bowlers, that would not hurt my feelings either.
That would not surprise me. I think both Mcvay and Snead feel they can get players anywhere in the draft, and coach them to what they need.

Re: Simply dont get the Brian Allen pick

But i just don't get the Brian Allen pick.... there isnt a single draft expert that had this guy going in the 4th. I think it's a matter of who or whom a person trusts to make picks. I think we also need to be careful how we use the term "draft expert". I'd rather trust a "coaching expert".

Re: Tavon Austin will be missed!

More than anything, Austin was on the bottom of a very deep wr list. For a team that had no quality two years ago, they are now very deep. My guess is that Mcvay would rather spend the reps on guys like Cooper and Thomas. Keeping Austin was holding back all three of them.

I couldn't get past the "packaging picks to move up for an impact player". The good Lord knows that teams were lining up to give the Rams a second rounder for three 6s and a 7!!

Re: Rams Draft: Adults in the building.

I like what they did. Honestly, I think they could have 5 of those guys stick, and be real contributors in the next few years.a few ( OO, Kelly and Kiser)as early as this coming season.

Rams will have every 6th round pick in the draft before this is over.
not only do I see them drafting a Tavon replacement, but I think we'll see a QB taken with one of those sixth rounders.

Most likely could have had this guy in round 4. We need edge rushers and ILB. Don’t get this pick. At least not her at pick #89.
Doesn't take long for the "he would have been available in the next round" posts. I'd love to know where people come up with these 'facts'.

Re: Can the Rams Realistically Trade Into the Top Of Round 2?

I can bet you one thing. They won't trade just so they can have a second round pick. I think most fans want them to, just to make the draft more exciting. Personally, I wouldn't mortgage next year's draft .

Re: LOS ANGELES SHOULD BE A UDFA MAGNET THIS SEASON DRAWING THE TOP QUALITY FREE AGENTS & MORE THAN OUR SHARE!

Both angles are well put. But would you want to make the 53 man squad of the Cleveland Browns or the Los Angeles Rams. Making the Rams roster with a possible Super Bowl championship, would give the player a bit more clout when signing elsewhere. I think there will be some UDFA's that see it one way...
