    I thought so too at first, but then I watched a ton of Mack. The guy is the true complete package, a great, great talent. Freakish strength, speed, he just does everything so well. Sheds blocks, pass rush moves, extremely high motor, doesn't give up ground in the run game, I'd love to have him on this team. Whether it's base OLB, nickel DE, even if we have to come up with a completely new hybrid defensive scheme like the Broncos did with Miller to get him on the field, I'd be okay with that.

    I could easily see us thinking he's the second best talent in this draft.

    This guy made the same point about Mack that I did on a thread I started. On passing downs he could move to DE, with long moving to DT.

    Well, that's just not true, in fact I'd argue the exact opposite.

    I wouldn't say so. Makes sense. Clowney will need time to adjust in the NFL. Makes sense to ease him in at first as a situational pass rusher...like they did with Quinn.

    If Clowney isn't ready to start in the NFL, who is?

    Hardly any rookie? ;)

    Even the great Orlando Pace was nursed in.

    Quinn
    Long
    Hayes
    Brockers
    Langford
    Sims
    Cudjo
    Conrath

    Our DLine contributors last season and all will be back.
    Much easier to plug Aaron Donald into the starting four than Clowney. Both players are disruptive,strong and fast.
    Push Langford onto the 2nd unit with Cudjo,Hayes and Sims. Give me Donald all day at #13(hopefully he's there) and draft Robinson/Matthews at the top or preferably in a small trade down for an extra 2nd rounder.
    Thats my plan :)

    The cool thing in my mind is I like your plan fine. I like mine better, but the only way the Rams screw this up in my opinion is trade too deep.

    Yeah trading too deep would be a mistake. The Rams don't have many glaring weaknesses and now is the time to put some real difference makers on the team. Trading too far back will take them out of the running for a top impact guy.

    I think we let Kevin Costner make the pick, win the girl, and save the world, and be home before 5:00 PM to bone the maid.

    I'd be happy with that. Fortify the lines. That is how you win.

    See? But there's the problem. It only works for terms. What about the big splash plays that win the SB in the first game or two of the season?

    What we do is install pools in the end zones, and have all of our beef jump in them...BAM, biggest splash plays in the NFL, after Bou teaches them how to cannonball correctly.

    I'd feel bad for the last one in. No water left.
