    Yeah, good site.
    http://www.drafttek.com Good draft site.

    Another good video site :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVWm9pNiXYY Thathighlightchannel.

    I like the work draftbreakdown does the best. They are not just highlights, they are games.

    It's just becouse for him "it's a poor draft",and Johnson would be our choise ... Right now, I'am listening to we are going to trade up ...

    We are in good position for draft ... everyone says so.But it's not wonderful draft for qb and wr position.So everyone's interest, converge on OLM.And we risk losing the players that we are really concerned.We could trade down too, but is necessary to see what happens before.Just if we haven't interesting players to choise we are going to trade down ...

    What do y'all think about targeting Collin Klein late in the draft? Not as a QB but as a TE(where he'll workout at the combine).

    Very intriguing option to me

    No. I'd rather take a guy who knows the position instead. Gavin Escobar would be a very good addition in the third round (although at the rate he's going, he may end up late second).

    I'm finding this year's draft a little uneasy - not the strongest I've seen recently, a limited 'elite' presence or rather sure fire top 10's so I'm not sure if there's much of a difference picking at 6 or 16 this year. it really depends on who goes at 1 and 2 - will it be Joeckel or Smith...

    For us as Rams, I'm more interested to see who we pick up in Free Agency first, there are a few of our own I'd like back in the fold and a few names from the wider FA pool that I'd like to see try out.

    He'd be a project, but he has the athleticism, work ethic, and size to be a good TE. You know he'll work his ass off to be successful. You would even throw a 6th or 7th at him? Right now he grades as borderline draftable.

    I Would choose Tyler Eifert for TE-position.We could cover a need in passing game without drafting a WR.Hiring FA OLM and taking Warmack or Johnson,would give us the chance to call him to 22nd pick of the first round.He is a Gronko-copy!

    So say that Fluker does look good, do you think he's worth the pick at 16? Say Warmack, Johnson, Patterson, Vaccaro are all off the board... You think they go Fluker at 16 and then Austin at 22 (if Amendola does in fact walk), or you think they only see Fluker as worthwhile at 22? If Amendola stays and Patterson is there at 16, I believe Fluker will be there at 22. So you could take Patterson at 16 (or really anyone else).. But if Patterson is gone, there's no way Austin is there at 46, and if Amendola leaves we need to get someone like Austin to replace him.

    I wouldn't mind Fluker at 16 and Austin and 22, then Kyle Long at 46, then S in the 4th. Don't know if Fisher will be looking to draft OLB, it may be what they address in FA given his comments at the position today.

    I think Fluker will be in play at either draft position. The more scouts watch him, the more they like him. I'd be OK with him, he'd make a great RT.

    I think Fluker would be a great pickup, but i'm not 100% convinced he's a round 1, but it does depend on who goes early on - the Rams have plenty of needs...

    I'm actually not all that impressed with Fluker. Honestly, I would be pissed if we took him at #16. I'd rather we took him at #22 if we did. If Danny A is gone, and all those players are off the board, I don't think #16 is too high for Austin. All my opinion.

    If we took Austin and Fluker would it matter which was picked where?

    lol I guess not? It would be easier for me to fathom and control my rage if we picked him @ 22 though. :lol:
