What if I told you that obsessing over every draft pick over the last several decades has inspired me to call Gary Bettman and tell him I can stop another lockout?

Here I root all through the first round for one of the top 3 WR's to fall to the Rams at #33. All 3 do. And they pick a WR that Kiper said was his 10 or 12 best WR. Can you say Jacoby Shepard or Trunge Canidate?

I don't pretend to know who will be the best players to come out of this draft, but the Rams admitted that the #1 player on their board was Glen Dorsey and that Chris Long was the #4 player on their board. That irritates me.

Imagine how Los Angeles feels about drafting Thomas Hickey. :oops: I wonder who the Rams had in the 2,3 slot? My guess is that it was
1. Glenn Dorsey
2. Jake Long
3. ??? Ellis/Gholston ???
4. Chris Long

My real problem is the Rams drafting Avery.

McFadden was in their top 3, but not taking him is understandable given the current team. Not taking a DT is absurd.

As for Avery, I don't see how we can be mad about that. They felt he was the best WR available and most think he would have been gone by their next pick.

When is this team going to draft a linebacker early? One of the safer picks you can make... and this team sucks at defense and that begins and ends with their D-Line and LB corps.

When I saw Rd 2 ended and Dan Connor was still available, I thought it was a no brainer for the Rams in the 3rd.

At least he is local. Gotta keep up with the Yan Stastny and epic Cam Jansen moves the Blues have pulled off recently!

I fully expected them to take Conner. I'm really disappointed that they did not.
