keep reading former 6th rd pick Mike Thomas will be great,
Yeah, so much for that.
Really bummed about the PED suspension.
Not sure it means the end of him.
May mean Spruce or Marquez get an extended shot. Although both are more slot than wideout.

Okay, okay, okay.... I'll stop being a dick.

Earlier this week, Bill Belichick described Lance Kendricks as a "good clutch tight end."
Well, that was clearly a "clutch play" for the Patriots, which I'm presuming is what Bill Belichick was referring to... :? :o :roll:

I agree on the draft grades. I really thought we could of done better...

Could just be me but I would of taken Lamp in round 2 and Elflein in the 3rd. That would of shored up our Guard slot and taken care of the Center position for the next decade (we've only needed to draft a center for the last 10 years)...

IMO we already had enough slot guys and I wouldn't of taken the 4th best TE in the draft that early...

Goff is a mystery to most. I didn't see anything in him last year that makes me think he'll be a franchise QB. With that said I didn't see anyone on O last year who looked like they were keepers. How does Gurley go from NFC ROY to a has been? Change in blocking scheme? Players gave up on Fisher? I think everyone, including Goff, should get a pass for the last 5 years. This is the year to evaluate Tavon, Gurley, Goff etc. seeing how we'll be running a modern day NFL offense for the first time in 5 years...

Even if Wade leaves after a year or two (this could be his last stop) it's an upgrade over what we had and hopefully he has an understudy on his staff that is worthy of a promotion...

I agree that we should target high caliber players entering their second contract (Snead said that was his goal when hired) not old vets but it's hard to only get players going into their prime (money\cap, only so many available etc.). Whitworth wasn't a bad signing IMO he's just not a long term solution...

Plenty of players come after round 4. Teams that consistently hit on those picks (and by that I mean 50% at best) have solid rosters top to bottom...
You do realize 1st round picks have a 50% bust rate and you want players after the 4th round to be this successful?

Lance Zierlein Rams draft 26th best, McVay 30th best head coach, Pete Prisco Goff 32nd best starting qb, msm Goff 29th NFL top 100 player only one Aaron Donald 15th..expect the .Rams roster will be ranked around 25-30 by experts around the league doing a quick wiki on rosters I'd rank them 30th

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams will not reach a long-term agreement with franchise-tagged CB Trumaine Johnson before the July 17 deadline.
CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported the same a week ago, and it does not look like anything has changed. Unable to sign Johnson to a long-term deal after tagging him last year, it would have been difficult for the Rams to handle this situation any worse, and it now looks like Johnson will head to free agency next spring having earned $31 million over two seasons.

keep reading former 6th rd pick Mike Thomas will be great, Jake Eldrenkamp will ab solid backup,ditto Blythe who was cut by the oline starved Colts, Spruce will be great and on and on truth is hoping a 6th rd pick develops or udfa's ever make the 53 let alone become solid backups are beyond realistic...

teams are made up with 1st & 2nd rd picks with a few 3rd/4th thrown in..after that odds are so long they aren't worth considering...

adding a very old LT and an old center who hasn't played in 2 years was wasted money. Jay Gruden used the #5 overall pick on Brandon Scherff a guard because he wanted to build from the inside out. McVay(all new H'C's) get 2 years to prove themselves.McVay, I'd guess because of his youth, is trying to win now....and leaving himself with major holes to fill next year..2 cb's, LT and C, wr...and possibly at rb and qb and new DC. while tearing apart a very good 4-3 defense..

watching thought McVay should of not bothered with scheme fits and gone purely bpa in the draft and only sign free agents entering their 2nd contract and just entering their prime...losing Ryan Groy reported the Rams made Groy a two-year, $5 million offer, 17 centers make more...was scary stupid...79.5 score last year per pff and entering his prime..Snead made it essy for Bufflao to match..still remember Groy saying how he wanted the Bills to match because he was from the midwest and didn't want to move to a different country with different values/morals

shame McVay wasted the opportunity to gut the team and do a total rebuild and finish 2017 with a 1 or 2 win season and restock the team. still shake my head at passing on Feeney in 3rd

no one even attempted doing my camp reports last year..hope someone tries this year..miss reading mine and my buddy coacho who used my template.we both knew depth charts matter...following who is moving up or down is all that matters..not that reynold beats a udfa cb playing in the 3rd team or Goff beatsTroy Hill with a pass
Gee.... I wonder why he disappeared?

Okay, okay, okay.... I'll stop being a dick.
