    The Georgia LB that's going to be a superstar is Jarvis Jones. That guy can play. If the Rams get lucky enough to draft him that will help set up our front seven for years to come.

    I think he started as a tackle, but has been playing guard and center this year. He'll also be a first rounder.

    Yup Barrett Jones. Dude I wanted since LAST year. He dominates every posistion he lines up. I really hope the Rams draft him.

    Eddie Lacy isn't going to be drafted if SJack stays. I want to see him in Pittsburgh...behind a good run blocking OL. Hello.

    Jarvis Jones I'll admit didn't know much until last night, but apparently he's a star pass rusher i.e. Von Miller but can be run at....

    Either way...that was a good game.

    If he makes it to the Ram's pick in the second round, OU's Lane Johnson is worth a look. he held off some of the best defensive ends in college as a fairly new offensive tackle. 3 years ago he was a jr. college QB. OU shifted him to tight End, where he kept eating and growing. The moved him to defensive end, and then to OT, where this year he played LT. He is 6'6" 305lb., and may still be growing. He runs a 4.7 40. Has a lot of athleticism, and will continue to grow in the position.

    Sounds like a late round project...right up Boudreau's alley. Might be nice to take a chance on him and see if we can develop him.

    mid-round prospects

    A couple guys I'd really like the Rams to target are:
    Bacarri Rambo...could start at safety immediately and have an impact (and his name kicks ass too).
    Denard Robinson...he could be a KR/PR and gadget WR.

    Thoughts?

    With the continued development of Givens, the potential development of Quick, and assuming we resign Amendola, how high does another WR fall on your wish list?
    If we were drafting in the 18 and 19 spot range, how would this type of draft do you?

    1a. Alec Ogletree LB GA
    1b Tyler Eifert TE ND
    2 Logan Ryan CB Rutg
    3 Shawn Williams S GA
    4 Kyle Long OT OR
    5 Markus Wheaton WR Or St
    6 Mike Beauharnais LB Rutg
    7 Reid Fragel OT Oh St

    Do you find it too D heavy? Or do you think we need an OT or another WR earlier? I find it interesting that Jake Long may become an unrestricted FA demanding around $15m a year after a subpar season coming off an injury. I don't know if we would want to bypass the talent available in the first round for an ROT that may or may not pan out. What do you gentlemen think?

    I've been reading much draft boards and scouting reports the last few weeks and from that stand point the realized need picks that are always the topic have us going Warmack G and or Lewan OT with one pick and Reid or Vaccaro both S's with the other.

    But I'll say it now.......If he falls, Sheldon Richardson will be one of the picks. Wanna make this D special? I got one word for you... Penetration.

    It's not always about sexy picks, it's about winning games. Push that pocket on any down and Long and Quinn eat QB buffet for 3 hours every Sunday.

    As a Mizzou fan, I would be screaming furiously at the TV if that pick happened. Richardson went the JUCO route because he couldn't get into Mizzou the first time and only got in after his sophomore year. He did precisely nothing in his first season there. He looked lazy, uninterested, and selfish; he completely gave up on plays when they weren't headed toward him. He was utterly manhandled in that Georgia game because he foolishly ran his mouth and trash-talked the other team. He was similarly manhandled by South Carolina, Alabama, and Texas A&M in the games we played them. He was also suspended for the second-to-last game - a game that we needed to win for a bowl game and lost, by the way - because he didn't bother to keep up with his studies and kept skipping classes. He also has an attitude that was horrible enough for Gary Pinkel to want him to go into the draft, just so that he didn't have to deal with him anymore.

    He is the very definition of a one-year wonder, and he only played lights-out this year because he knew it was his only shot of getting into the first round. Even then, he let the whole freaking team down when we needed him most, he's selfish, disappears in the big games, and he's likely to quit on his NFL team once he gets a pay-day (i.e., after he gets drafted). Us Mizzou fans are glad he's gone, and I hope that Fisher wouldn't make the mistake of selecting this guy. I have no love lost for him, that's for sure.

    I'm sorry for the rant, Yamahopper. I totally get what you're saying about a defensive penetrator at defensive tackle. I just can't ever get behind us taking Richardson after what he did to my program.

    I'm still shouting for an OLB from last year's draft! Add a S, then think O side of ball with OT, TE, WR, RB. I think the perfect scenario is to get a FA WR ( Greg Jennings comes to mind) next year and target the WR Lee out of USC in 2014.

    Marqise Lee? Yeah, he's going to be a great one. I wouldn't mind at all if we selected him. Totally agree with you on getting an outside linebacker (maybe another for developmental purposes) and a safety. The more I hear Jairus Byrd's (Bills free safety) name pop up, the more I want him on our team. He's a native St. Louisan, so I believe we've got a pretty good shot at him. Would love to get Jennings, but I think he's out of our price range. Definitely agree on OT, TE, WR, and RB.

    In other news, I hear that Marcus Lattimore had successful surgery and is entering the draft. Would any of you guys mind spending a third or fourth round pick on him? I know he's injury-prone, but the kid is so damn talented, and I've got to give him major props for being able to recover from two devastating injuries.

    I agree 100% on what your saying about him, and it's true. He can be a dog.

    But the 1st round is all about potential and talent. Hustle and football knowledge comes in about the 3rd round.
    Coaches always think they can get 110% out of any player, and when or if they can do that with a player at this talent level they got something great. 1st round teams seek greatness. More times or not it fails.

    Dog or not if he has a good combine he's going at 15 or less, great combine top ten.
    I'm guessing the Rams want to compliment Brockers and the DE's. They want push. They might roll the dice to get it.

    I get that, and I agree with almost everything you're saying. My problem is taking a player who is a selfish head-case at best and a selfish, apathetic head-case at worst. You can teach skill to an extent. You help make players more consistent. You can even get guys with major character issues to play for you, provided they grow up a lot. But you can't make someone work for you when they don't want to do that. The fact that Richardson only did this in one year scares me even more; one-year wonders with character and motivation issues are the types of players who are most likely to bust.

    Other than that, though, I couldn't agree more.

    Honestly the more I think about it, and I almost feel bad doing so, the more I'm thinking about Tavon Austin from West Virginia.

    He's a receiver, he's fast, he's a great punt return guy, and he plays running back. He would essentially make Pead unnecessary, because he can be a RB, but he's got the skills to play WR. He's listed officially as a WR, but he put up 344 yards playing RB in a game. Plus 146 return yards. He's not going to break any tackles, but he can juke a guy out of his shoes.

    But again, drafting him would essentially replace Pead, so it's something I'm torn on, because we haven't really gotten a chance on Pead. But taking him would fill 3 spots. He can be a 3rd RB, be a return man, and WR. It's a tough decision.

    I know there's a few other guys here who want him too.
