Third round surprise


Please excuse my infrequency, I assure you that it's not because I would have not cared. Third after the jump.

First of all, while I'm relatively new to this community, I have already begun to appreciate the level of conversations here. With a couple of exceptions, everyone has been exceptionally nice. I say that in the context of having written for a big time college football program. There is no pleasing some folks. Sometimes they take it personally. In fact, someone sent me an email, that was the nastiest thing you could ever imagine. I'm still getting over it.

That said, I think this was the forum I was looking for. I appreciate the positive outlook, and am so happy that the "fire everybody" is a vocal (as always) minority. Being a big time Cards fan, I've grown used to quiet success. I rooted for the Cards until the Lou got a team. That's how I decided my NFL team. Well you were the Cards, but Rams? In St. Louis? Yes please.

I'm a Rams guy. I watch every game and feel fairly tuned in. I read a ton of Rams stuff, and hope you will at least lend me a tiny bit of credibility. If you keep in mind that writing for an NFL team is new to me, I can promise that I'll be around more often, if you like. I want to be friends with you guys. I'll never write something intentionally provocative.

All that said, the 3rd round pick will satisfy many. Lets briefly summarize my rationale. I believe in building the lines before going after skill. I believe that the skill matters not at all unless the playmakers have time to make plays. Bradford is a playmaker, so I endorse Matt Kalil as the first round pick. He gives Bradford time to make plays. I endorse Worthy in the second (from MSU) as he allows Laurenitis to make plays.

In the third round, Marvin McNutt, WR, U of Iowa: Will set the all time receiving record at Iowa, has prototype hands. Rarely injured. Former QB, 6'4. Hard worker. Having rooted against him, he's pretty unstoppable. Line him up opposite Lloyd with Kendriks and Amendola, you have a nice attack.

All comments appreciated.
