    Joseph signing was very nice. 25 and good at his job. They paid Griffen and Joseph combined what Allen made last year. Seems like a good plan to me.

    I think at least one of the OL goes top 10. Look at the draft history. Plus, the Rams 100% need an OT, if not more OL. If by some miracle neither OT has gone by 8, someone will want to trade up for one of them. And Spielman would want more picks this year. Deepest draft in ages.
    Lighten up Francis....

    This is the worst case but that still means that the remaining 7 are the first 7 picks. I have seen Gilbert typically being available in mocks so I think he's likely to be the pick if the 3 QB's are taken (assuming Mack is taken).

    I think if it's not a QB I'd prefer Gilbert or trading back for someone like Moseley.

    As would I, Levi, but they might not find a partner. If they do trade back, I'd hope for Mosely, Dennard, or Marquis Lee to be there....

    Yeah, finding the partner might be tough. If one of those two OT does fall...that might be our ticket.

    Either way, reading the Star Trib's breakdown of our current linebacker group is depressing. Like...really, REALLY depressing.
