I will be a man an admit it, when the Rams drafted Michael Hoomanawanui in the 5th round, I was not very excited. I even commented on previous posts and challenged The Hoo (like that nickname?) that he better step up and show us why he was taken at that spot. He has obviously proved himself on the field enough to the point where he is basically the Rams leading receiver and Sam The Ram's go to target. Good job to The Hoo!
I was excited about Daniel Fells and hoped that he would be able to build on the success that he had last year and cement himself as one of the prominent tight ends in the league. His injuries have held him back but I think with Fells and The Hoo, we have a pair of solid tight ends.
The one that I thought would be the most intriguing was Fendi Onobun. The basketball player from Phi Slamma Jamma and Arizona. His athleticism on the basketball court and on his pro-day showed me some things. That one play against the Patriots where he caught the ball and ran it down the sideline should have been a touchdown. His foot was definetely inbounds and the replay showed it. Didn't understand why that play was not reviewable. What good is instant replay if you can't use it there. Maybe Spags should have challenged the spot of the ball?
Now the Rams have made a trade and Dennis Morris is another one to get excited about. I gotta admit, when draft time came around, this guy was not on my radar so I had no clue who he was when I found out about the trade but you gotta take a look at this video . I like the way this video breaks it down by blocking skills, receiving skills and his TD's. The catch against Boise State was the highlight play of his season because it was against All America cornerback Kyle Wilson.
All in all, I am glad that our tight end corps is starting to look like a strength now while our receiving corps is still trying to figure itself out.
