Great time for football fans. We are ready and waiting for the next step. Recently I had lost my password and my puter took a dive. So I reopened another account with a twist on my name. I am Rocky. Long time Rams fan. Raised in Texas under the Cowboy regime. My Pop and Bob Lilly were running buddy's. I have a cousin that played for the Eagles named Jerry Sisemoore. So I watched a lot of games on the old black and white Tv. It seens that in my memories of those times it was always snowing.
I have been a Rams fan for 45 years. Love the old guys. And the GSOT era. We are now walking into the next level. A new generation. Good times ahead. Anyway, I recently saw that a few of you suggest trading up after the first wave. And I concur. I feel we can improve our position by drafting 4 to 5 top guys. Even by taking what we trade down for and perhaps our 2016 1st rounder. Let's say to get: Donald/Robinson or Mathews/ Gilbert/Pryor/ and Evans or a rock guard. I worked this out a few times in the "first-pick" draft tool. I had a great draft to share twice. Of course each play out differently by who runs on which position first. Difficult to read sometimes. But I just had one to share with you. n this one we graded very well. And I traded down with an extra 1st gained in 2015 draft. I did not move back up until later. And that was to get Gabe Jackson. In this, I saw early that I would lose my shots at "The Top Tackles" so I wanted to work at future works 2 yrs plus down the line. We had gained the extra 1st in 2015 and given up the ability to trade back up for prime picks early. I found that if we get at least two extra 2nd round and another 3rd, we can find a few teams to trade back up with. In this draft I dropped to get the 2015 pick and got some others but chose to ride it out after my usual targets were gone. I am not a great fan of Dee Ford but at that place he was the only with value. But you can see that I doubled up with a couple of positions to sustain the injury bug. And to mentor into readiness for 2015. We must replace a few veterans, like it or not.
So take a look and give some input toward what you feel we should do. It is getting closer. 5 days away! I believe the waters are settling from the FA splash. Now targets of QB's and Clowney with the top 2 tackles are being defined. We are going to make some moves. Last I must say that the ferver for Watkins and Evans have subsided.Smoke screen???
