None of these are our most important need.

We were dead last in the league in terms of the average yard line our offensive drives began on. That must be fixed immediately.

Out of those listed, it is clearly Craig Dahl being replaced.


I agree with the field position statement. But also penalties kill offensive drives and keep your defense on the field longer, Fisher stated that earlier this year on the Jeff Fisher Show. We need to get a good kick returner in the draft whether it be early (Austin or Patterson) or later in the draft.


Well put. On a side note, it seems as though Austin is quickly becoming a forum favorite.


I like Patterson more than Austin at this point. Patterson has a lot of potential with his speed and size. Patterson went to a Junior College and it seemed to really change his work ethic and make him more mature. Only thing that concerns me about Austin is his weight and can he handle the punishment of NFL defenders.


I don't. Patterson doesn't use his size while imo Austin is much more electric with the ball in his hands and appears to be faster to me.

The Rams were tied for the most sacks allowed with 52. If their two First Round Picks don't go to the Offensive Line, then they're not taking the problem very serious.

1. Offensive Guard.
2. Offensive Tackle
3. Safety.
4. Another Offensive Guard
5. A second RB since Jackson looks to be gone.


No. The Rams were tied for most defensive sacks with 52. We finished right in the middle of the NFL this year in terms of Sack% Allowed.


Thanks for the correction as I got my numbers turned around. It's still good to add more quality offensive linemen. The Rams have too much invested in Bradford not to have a top five offensive line.


I agree.

Don't worry. Sean Payton would pass the ball in a Tornado.

But would he do it in a Sharknado?

Welcome to the forum! I'd switch OL and WR. Your picture is too big btw.

Thanks!

I think if Quick and Pettis progress well, we could have a pretty good receiving core. We all know what a healthy Amendola can do, Givens is a dangerous deep threat, we just lack a veteran #1 WR. I seriously hope Fisher and Snead will sign a WR in the offseason, lots of good ones are available; Welker, Wallace, Bowe, etc... Or they could take a good look at Cordarrelle Patterson from Tennessee, he looks like the real deal.

Bradford showed progress this year. Get him a Number 1 so he can continue to flourish.

#1 WR

OL(LG,OT)

S(Not Craig Dahl)

I tell you what, Matt Elam made a pretty good case for himself yesterday in the sugar bowl. Although Teddy Bridgewater seemed to curve Florida's pass D all night, Elam made his presence felt early an often. I've always been a big fan of his because of his elite athleticism and ultra physical play and last night he didn't disappoint. I believe he may have solidified a spot in the back end of round 1 (early 2 at the very latest). All i know is I wouldn't mind seeing Elam in the horns when he brings the wood like this.......



To get my full analysis on Matt Elam keep an eye out for my first 2013 mock of the year Wink
