Rams emphasizing versatility: Random Ramsdom, 6/30

Alright, if you think the St. Louis Rams will open the season with Rodger Saffold at right tackle, stand on your head. It's really encouraging to see the Rams emphasizing versatility with their players at positions like that. Injuries come and go, as we know so well, and it's essential not to be so specialized that the best player can't switch sides and fill-in with as little disruption as possible.

However, Jason Smith gets paid a lot of money, second overall pick money and, more importantly, has the skills that translate well to the left side. Give his experience in Baylor's spread offense and his work in the two-point stance, the Rams would be smart to run some more shotgun with Bradford at the helm. Saffold played LT in college and it would be great for the Rams if he could play left tackle in the NFL; for the flexibility alone it's worth it. 

Speaking of position changes...

 

  • John Greco worked at C yesterday in practice. 
  • The official site has a training camp preview for the defense.
  • The Sam Bradford watch continues. I suspect the next 24 will bring fruitful news of a contract between the QB and the Rams.
