I live outside of St. Louis so I didn't hear John Clayton, who was visiting camp with the Rams this week, on local radio 1380AM. A few TST community members, however, have emailed me, reporting what they heard and it's very, very encouraging.
Apparently, Clayton called Carriker "a beast" inside, and named the Rams new DT as his second biggest surprise of the summer. He added that he's never seen a former defensive end make the switch to tackle so easily. That's a ringing endorsement, and yet another sign that the Rams could be in for a pleasant season. Here at TST, we've mentioned in discussions before that Carriker would handle the switch well, as he was something of a run stopping specialist DE at Nebraska.
