How quickly we forget (the TE problem)


The big theme after the draft is that the Rams are using the Patriots model of 2 TE sets. Well, the Rams aren't the Patriots and I don't think Kendricks represents a real upgrade over our current players

Anyone remember Joe Klopfenstein and Dominique Byrd. Yeah, a 2nd round and 3rd round pick, respectively. We had these two tight ends and look where it got us. I don't like the fact that his blocking is suspect. Chase Coffman and Martin Rucker were both excellent pass-catching TEs whose skills didn't translate to the NFL. Everyone seems so willing to look east for an example of where the system went right, but unwilling to look into our own state where it has gone wrong.

Now, obviously, only time will tell if this was the right pick for the Rams. But, as of right now, I am betting against it.
