Rams 2012 Draft: Thoughts On Change

One of the changes I would like to see is a power dimension to the running game. Having the ability to wear down rival defenses will open up the passing game. Personnel must get bigger up front. Added size to the O-Line; particularly the interior, will benefit protection.

Another benefit is the ability to convert on goal line and short yardage situations without a total reliance on the pass. Mike Tolbert (2012 FA RB Chargers) can be an asset in short yardage saving SJAX for perimeter plays. My ideas for the 2012 Draft:

1. Justin Blackmon 6’1 212 Okla St: 113 Catches, 1,241 Yards, 15 TD’s.Blackmon has continued to be both consistent and productive during his career at Okla St. A well rounded WR.

2.Chris Polk 5’11 222 Wash: 1,341 Yards, 11 Td’s, 29 rec's for 324 yards and 4 TD's.. Polk has size and power. Patient runner who produces.

3.Cliff Harris 5’11 170 Oregon: Suspensions from driving related offenses have kept Harris out of action for most of the season. There is no denying his production as a ballhawk and return specialist. In limited action this year:10 Tkl’s 1 INT, 3 PD. In 2010: 6 Int’s, 1 Int returned for a TD. 34 punt returns for 546 yards,and 4 Td’s.

4.Sylvester Williams 6’3 320 N.C: 34 Tkl’s, 3 Tfl’s, 2 Sacks, 1 Int’s, 2 Pd’s. Williams brings a surprising amount of athleticism for a man his size. he has the ability to penetrate, and also handle two blockers so LB’s can flow to the ball. If he knows he will not get to the QB on a pass play; those long arms go up to bat it down

6. Danny Trevathan 6’1 232 Kentucky: 135 Tkl’s 3 Sacks, 1 FF 4 INT’s. AN OLB that brings great instincts, sure tackling, and an ability to cover quick backs and rush the passer

7.WR Jarius Wright Ark 5'10 200: Solid route runner with speed to get deep.

7. CB Jonathon Banks Miss St 6'2 185: Physical CB and productive: 42 Tkl's ,2 Sacks 5 INT's 8 PD
