    As of right now, Robinson is firmly entrenched at the left guard position. Long appears to be on his way to being close to 100% come week 1, and the right side of the line is more or less settled. Wells, if (big if) healthy, is the best center on the team by a considerable margin.

    My question is about Robinson, Saffold, and Davin Joseph. It is my theory that at some point in the next few weeks, Joseph, as he becomes more comfortable with the terminology and his role, will start to show up more on game film as well as practice tape. Joseph is a proven commodity: a pro bowl caliber guard who suffered a terrible injury and is starting to bounce back. Not only that, but Joseph adds an element of nasty, mean spirited play that Fisher and Boudreau covet from their interior lineman.

    So, if Joseph can return to form, or close to it, can the Rams, a team stricken with dismal ticket sales and one of the lowest profiles an NFL franchise enjoys in its host city, afford to allow their #2 overall pick to learn on the job hoping that he finds his form, or will Joseph be a serious consideration for a starting job? And, in the event Robinson is bumped on the depth chart, can the regime afford the scrutiny of drafting a "project" player at #2 when the team had, and still has, glaring holes at serious positions at the top of the draft?
