We Want Spagnuolo! - Friday at the Combine

New, comments

Anything happening today at the Combine of interest for the Rams? The biggest thing for us is that new head coach Steve Spagnuolo is expected to hold a press conference. We'll have reactions as it happens.

As for the player side of things, today is QB, WR, and RB day at the combine, so expect the web to be flooded with posts and articles rehashing notes and quotes from those guys, like all the OT after yesterday. Of those positions, WR is the most important to the Rams, with a need for a solid #2 RB very real, and the need at QB being more of a hunt for opportunity in the later rounds. 

Couple of players of note from the QB/WR/RB day at the Combine.

First of all, let me mention great Twitter feed from the Combine that Doug Farrar from Football Outsiders is doing for the Washington Post. Follow it here, and while you're on Twitter, be sure to follow TST too.

In his Twitter, Farrar notes that Sam Houston State QB Rhett Bomar's stock is on the rise according to several people, including the NFL's Mike Maycock. Bomar would have been a steal for the Rams in round 3, but a precipitous rise probably puts Bomar into the second round and less likely for the Rams to pick.

Mike Sando sizes up Michael Crabtree, who is not running at the Combine because of an ankle injury. The Larry Fitzgerald comparisons were flying in Crabtree's press avail. Crabtree will have a private workout on March 15 in Dallas; I suspect the Rams will have someone in attendance, keep an eye on who goes from St. Louis.

As a Wyoming grad, I can be a bit of homer for the Cowboys (Adam Goldberg anyone?). So I was particularly interested to read reports of UW RB and Mountain West rushing champion Devin Moore putting on a show for 14 NFL team reps in his own, private workout in Indy after being snubbed from the Combine invite list. Moore ran a 4.41 second 40, which would have been fifth best among RBs at last year's Combine. He could be a late round sleeper pick, and a speedy, versatile guy who might make a nice second back behind Steven Jackson.
