Random Ramsdom: 1 week, 1 Day


There is only 8 days left until the Rams organization welcomes some new additions to the team.

This is the most stressful time for NFL front offices. So much preparation goes into the draft, and no one wants to drop the ball. All contingencies are being accounted for, and everyone is preparing for the mad dash that is the NFL draft.

In the world of draft analysts, this is the period of time in which every player will go in the top 10, or could fall to the mid-late rounds. You will here all kinds of crazy reports, and 1/10 of them will end up being correct. It will be interesting to see who predicted things correctly this year.

Greg Cosell says Justin Hunter is the drafts top WR:

Could it be? Justin Hunter was listed by many as the drafts top receiver during the fall. However, Hunter has fallen out of good graces as other prospects have risen and scouts have a had a chance to really press him in wake of his knee surgery recovery. Could Hunter really be the drafts best WR?

The Turf Show Times team just finished our running back big board:

Eddie Lacy averaged-out as our #1, but very few of us agreed on our top 5. See how we voted.

Expect the unexpected from Jeff Fisher and Les Snead

I believe this sentiment to be very true. Jeff Fisher and Les Snead will build a intelligent draft plan, and they won't panic. They will stick to their guns and pull the trigger with conviction. To me, this means some decisions may seem strange or unorthodox from an outside perspective. Fisher and Snead will have spent a lot of time evaluating their plans. Ultimately, it will mean they have a strong idea of what certain players can help their team. It just may happen that "those" players aren't the ones that draft analysts love the most.

Is DJ Hayden a fit for the Rams:

As the Rams learned in 2011, you can never have too many corners. DJ Hayden is shooting up draft boards, but still may be available in the second round. Would you be disappointed if the Rams drafted any corners in the early rounds?

"Blue and Red Chip" players:

When Tony Softli talks about blue and red chips he's usually at a Mexican restaurant, but when Gil Brandt refers to a blue or red chip player he's referring to the elite ceiling. Who are this years most highly gifted prospects?

Stay classy Rams fans!
