Tremendous Start For New Ram's Regime



I have been very much impressed with The Ram's new leadership thus far. Free Agent acquisitions; Scott Wells, Kendall Langford, and Cortland Finnegan, addressed key needs in key areas. The 2012 NFL Draft; has been a far cry from the way things "use to be". Pillars have fallen, risk rises above restraint, and the gates of hell have opened in St. Louis. In the words of the great philosopher Billy Joel, " The sinners are much more fun."

The new leadership seems to have that killer instinct needed to win in The NFL. This has been apparent throughout the draft, as The Rams acquired picks that are a little "rough around the edges." After the jump I will offer an opinion about the draft picks thus far. I give this draft an A grade thus far. All thoughts and opinions are always welcome.

1. DT Michael Brockers, LSU. Long armed run stuffer that is difficult to single block. This ability allows LB's open lanes en route to the ball. A versatile D-lineman who has the ability to line up as a 4NT, 3T, or DE. Brockers has the ability to become an impact DT.

2. WR Brian Quick, Appalachian St. I must admit; with this pick I wanted The Rams to draft Stephen Hill. Nevertheless; Quick was a great selection. The former basketball player has outstanding leaping ability and body control. It seems The Rams have found a weapon at WR.

3.CB Janoris Jenkins, Northern Alabama. I will not apologize for wanting to use this pick for OG Cordy Glen, Georgia, LOG could have been manned by Glen. This was not to be. The Rams went with instead the best cover corner in the draft; Janoris Jenkins. This kid has legitimate talent as a CB and return specialist. Jenkins brings outstanding speed to a secondary that has been burned more than a fry cook. Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins are an aggressive pair of CB's that are not afraid to come up and make the big hit.

4.Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati.An explosive offensive weapon that can impact on draws and screenplays. Pead brings value to special teams as a dangerous P/R. He is an excellent receiver who does a lot of damage in space. In 2011 Pead had: 237 rushing att, 1,259 yards, and 12 TD's.. As a receiver Pead produced:: 39 recs,319 yards, and 3 TD's.

5.CB Trumaine Johnson, Montana. A big tough man corner. Athletic CB with long arms.Johnson was initially sought out to be a WR. That experience seems to have helped his ball skills.Johnson attacks the ball as if it belonged to him. That is an attitude that he plays with. Johnson is a punishing tackler who may one day switch to the safety position.

So Far So Great. The Rams are making an effort to be not just good; but great.
