St. Louis Rams 2011 stats predictions: Mike Hoomanawanui

The Rams' biggest target on offense is Mike Hoomanawanui.  The question is how much will he be able to play. (<a href="http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Michael+Hoomanawanui+Atlanta+Falcons+v+St+_tO5pQxQot0l.jpg">via</a>)

We've wrapped up our predictions for special teamers and the defense (you kind find the past projection threads at that link; better late than never). We move over to the offensive side with one of the more difficult projections, largely due to injury.

Hoomanawanui was a fifth-round pick not a year and a half ago, and came to St. Louis as a relatively unheralded prospect. In just eight games, flashed receiving talent in a bulky frame that the Rams haven't had since Billy Truax (LSU product...). And while fans understandably want more Hoomanwanui on the field, his body wants the opposite.

Stats and stuff after the jump.

So what should we expect from Mike in year two? Of course, he's spent plenty of time this preseason injured already. How much time should he be expected to play? Here's his stats from last year:

Receiving Rushing
Year Age Tm Pos No. G GS Rec Yds Y/R TD Lng R/G Y/G Att Yds TD Lng Y/A Y/G A/G YScm RRTD Fmb AV
2010 22 STL 86 8 3 13 146 11.2 3 36 1.6 18.3 146 3 0 2
Career 8 3 13 146 11.2 3 36 1.6 18.3 146 3 0 2

What do yall think? Can Uh-Oh stay healthy and provide OC Josh McDaniels with a complementary TE to Lance Kendricks, or are the Rams going to find themselves without Big Mike for much of the year?

Prediction lines for Hoomanwanui should read:

games played / receptions / yards / TDs

I'll go with 10 / 25 / 206 / 4 . It's a hopeful prediction, but if he can give us double digits in the games column, I'll be pleasantly surprised. If not, he might be on the outside looking in come 2012.

Holler.
