With Donnie Avery out the entire 2010 season, that leaves the WR list as Laurent Robinson, Danny Amendola, Mardy Gilyard, Brandon Gibson, Danario Alexander, Keenan Burton, Brandon McRae, Jordan Kent, and Dominque Curry.
That being said, you only "really" know of 3 receivers making the team, with Robinson, Gilyard, and Amendola.
Anything can happen after that.
With a starting position open on the outside, I really like Brandon Gibson in that role.
The reason why is because Danny Amendola and Mardy Gilyard aren't outside receivers. They are both good in the slot, not outside.
I recently was watching some games of the Rams at the end of last season, while Brandon Gibson was playing in the wide out spot. He looked pretty good, and he is better than Keenan Burton.
Spags knows how Gibson plays the game, and he knows of his ability. The Rams would be a lot better if Gibson was on the outside, and Amendola in the slot. (or Gilyard)
Brandon Gibson stats from 2009 (9 games):
34 receptions, 348 yards, 1 TD, averaged 10.2 yards per catch
Danny Amendola stats from 2009 (14 games):
43 receptions, 326 yards, 1 TD, averaged 7.6 yards per catch
A slot receiver should have more receptions, but an outside receiver should have more yards and average yards per catch. I like Gibson better outside.
My 2010 Depth Chart:
1. Laurent Robinson
2. Brandon Gibson
3. Danny Amendola
4. Mardy Gilyard
5. Keenan Burton
6. Danario Alexander (possibly PS)
7. Dominque Curry (PS)
Cut: Jordan Kent, Brandon McRae
