Re: Schefter: "There's no way" the Rams won't pick Sam Bradford at No. 1

With that being said I don't think Brdofr is necessarily overrated in terms of ability, just I think his value is way overhyped. We need to get 3-5 linemen in the next two drafts of starting caliber and keep some of the present line for depth, but we need to get some studs in here. With a great line guys like Sean Canfield, Bill Stull, or even Kafka or Elliot could do well. Not to forget Lefevour or Sheehan from the MAC. We can get these guys in the middle to later rounds establish a solid line and in 2-3 seasons dominate. There are a ton of very good QBs out there. Why limit ourselves to just two possible selections?

It doesn't seem like d tackles typically make a huge impact early on (regarding Suh). I don't think they "bust" like other positions, but for instance Raji fought through injury and just struggled to make an impact overall. Okoye (?) is sort of a similar story w/ the Texans. It really seems like it takes a few years for tackles to learn the tricks of the trade, the details, to become really dominant.

So I kind of see drafting Suh and Bradford similar in that you should expect a similar path of success...not immediate excellence. A team should draft on need all else being equal, and the Rams badly need a QB unless they try to build something about Vick or whatever.

Hey Gus, are Miami , cincinatti , fsu and byu jokes? Lol OU actualy plays a very good out of conference schedule if u knew your facts. Not To mention they play in the 2nd toughest conference in the country.. Unlike the weak ass big 10 or PAC 10.

I was with you up until that last sentence. I think the PAC-10 will officially overtake the SEC in terms of quality, or at least perceived quality, within the next year or two. Cal, Stanford, Washington, USC, UCLA, Arizona State, Oregon State, and Oregon are all quality programs right now with a few of those teams eying the possibility of a national championship. All those programs have great coaching, with the exception of USC who is loaded with talent anyway. The only teams in that conference that really stink are Arizona and Washington State.

Where did you hear all that stuff about Raji? Raji's play at the nose was considered a focal point in Green Bay's ability to transition to the 3-4 so quickly. And Okoye? Okoye came on very strong but has since played average at best. 5.5 sacks in year one compared to 2.5 sacks over the last two years.

I don't think I'd build my O-Line around a player like Colt Brennan, but I'm open to the idea that this is only because he wasn't drafted high enough.

I want a Blumpkin, followed by Okung... Davis sounds like a little bit of trouble.

I haven't seen a lot of Bradford but he seems similar to Bulger. I think Bulger can play but it seems that he just doesm't have enought pieces around him. Perhaps like JC he just needs a change of scenery.

Anybody thought about Bradford's possible chemistry with Malcolm Kelly? I'm not certain of this but I believe Bradford was a freshman the year before Kelly went pro. If they had a nice chemistry on the field that could mean good things for both Bradford if we end up picking him and for Kelly. Even though I like Campbell I definitely wouldn't mind taking Bradford.

Reading some of these posts just brings painful reminders of 2003. We had a strong offensive line back then (couple of 1st rounders, couple of 3rd rounders, Randy Thomas who I think was a 2nd rounder) yet we couldn't win with Shane Matthews and Danny Wuerfful...which is ridiculous because with that line those guys should have been franchise QBs.

Honestly, I wouldn't be all that surprised if Kelly isn't on the roster come the fall. Seems like some teams have been asking about him and he might be thrown in to help make a deal happen.

Good point Smoot, of course O line is important (heck, every aspect of a team is important) but the NFL is a QB league and without a top flite QB a team just cant be successful. 2003 is an excellent example of this.

Of course it's still possible Campbell ends up being the guy. Redskins won't just give him away and they were talking contract extension with his agent back in November/December (talks which apparently are picking up again).

All that said though, my own gut feeling is there won't be a contract extension and Campbell will be traded before the draft

I'm going to guess he has a tad more inside info and connections than we do.
