Four more days until the St. Louis Rams take on the Minnesota Vikings in their preseason opener. That's right real football, kind of....whistles blown in anger...the thud of pads smacking together...and hopefully no sign of injured players limping off the field. Let's jump right in.
It's a good bet that at least one of the DEs drafted by the Rams this year will make the final 53-man roster, at least as a situational pass rusher. Seventh-round pick George Selvie seems to be the lead horse right now, though Eugene Simms and Hall Davis are getting good reports too. It'll be interesting to compare Selvie to his former teammate and first-round pick Jason Pierre-Paul, who seems to be having a good camp with the Giants.
With Josh Brown dealing with a hip injury, the Rams may have to sign a kicker before this weekend's preseason game. Temper your expectations without Brown in the lineup.
