    What scares me most about Menelik is that he's a project and he'll be 25 years old before the season starts. That means if he takes a couple of years to get up to speed, he'll be 27 before he can really help us. At that point we can expect what, maybe 3-6 good years out of him? It seems like a waste of a high pick if you ask me. I wouldn't mind spending a first round pick on an OT who was 25 as long as they can play right away. Offensive tackles to tend to stay in the NFL longer, but if he can't start right away you're taking away more time from a guy who is already 25 years old. My thoughts are that when you draft a 1st rounder, you're hoping you'll have someone who can play/be productive for your team for 8-10 years.

    At this point I wonder if he was just trolling. Pretty much everything he posted was wrong. No one can be that wrong, that often..... while claiming to "know what it takes to win in the NFL", without it being a joke. Yeah, I think we got trolled fo sho.

    That, or the Rams clearly didn't get it right and don't know what it takes to win in the NFL.
    If only they could rent this guy's brain out for an hour or so. Then we'd be all set.

    Watch tape, watch highlights. That isn't a first round talent? What is then?

    Tavon Austin was #1 on my "draft board". Couldn't be more happy.

    Agreed. Stedman Bailey finished runner up in the WR of the year award. We got a great player.
