That is the speculation after getting compensation for Cousins. My expectation is that we get pick #42, as well as two first rounders -- which we can all agree is a steal for Cousins.

For example heres an excerpt from the Scouts Inc report:

Quote:
Pass Protection - 3 - Quickness and length make it tough to beat him clean. Strong and absorbs bull rush without giving too much ground. Long enough to protect edge and fill in at tackle. Better fit on inside. Above average effort and adequate balance when mirroring inside but limited athlete that has problems countering double moves and can get exposed if put on an island at tackle. Top-heavy and vulnerable to pull moves.
WalterFootball:
Quote:
Reliable pass-protector
Quick to engage
Can handle speed rushers
Can handle heavy tackles
Anchors well against bull rushers
Proper knee bend
Good pad level
So why is everyone so quick to have him playing Guard at the next level? Granted he doesn't sound like a premier left tackle prospect but it does sound like he'd be a great fit at Right Tackle for any team that takes him.

Hopefully the first year bumps are just him adjusting to the more physical nature of the NFL particularly having to adjust to a 16 game season. Plus I think TE is my favorite position in all of football. I'm the type of guy that would rather have Tony Gonzalez and Antonio Gates in their prime above even Megatron and Randy Moss.

Hmmmmmmm, I'm conflicted lol. Honestly though if the front office really was intent on getting a TE I would prefer a mid to late round guy like Jacob Pedersen.

Funny how we are after OLBs. Looks like Rak could be a one year deal

Yeah, that cant be right.

I just came across an article saying that the Browns had made a trade offer for Cousins that was rejected, I have no idea if that is accurate or not, but if it is, clearly we are not getting good enough offers for him right now to justify a trade. Come draft day though, it might be a different story.

I can't believe I thought that David Yankey was the one visiting when it was in fact Cameron Fleming.

FWIW in regards to Antonio "Tiny" Richardson (T Tenn) I read this in USA Today

Quote:
"Richardson had problems with speed rushers, but he is massive and could have the strongest upper body of tackle prospects."
However as of right now I'm starting to think we'd be better off trying to trade late into the first to secure Morgan Moses. If Cyrus Kouandjio had a clean bill of health then I'd more content to let the chips fall but the last thing we need at this point is more guys who can't stay healthy.

We would be extremely furtunate to get a second rounder for Cousins. Extremely fortunate. We would be just fortunate to get a third rounder.

I was very much hoping so, but it seemed so damn serious and the sarcasm meter was not low it was completely turned off?
Edit: because the 42nd pick thing is a possibility. I thought maybe he had inside info that the team willing to give that up was privy only to the cleveland game tape from two years ago.

If I'm St Louis I unload Bradford and grab Manziel.

Re: 2014 draft prospects Early edition

I would look at getting a QB if I was Stl.

I don't think I would go after manziel, and they would have a problem trAding qb making 17mil coming off an acl injury.

Had it not been for the injury we could have been talking about the first Rams Pro Bowler at QB since Bulger in 2006. Of course he could have taken a nose dive a la 2008 Jason Campbell but I think the consensus on Bradford at this point is that he's for real. So long as he stays healthy he'll earn his keep.

Regardless I don't think Manziel is the can't miss type of prospect where you introduce an updated version of Rivers vs Brees (who sucked in 2003). Worse comes to worse they can hope for the best among Kevin Hogan (Stanford), Bryce Petty (Baylor), and Conner Cook (Michigan State) in next years draft should Bradford ultimately prove to be a bust.

Besides its not like the Rams options at QB going into this year are John Beck and Rex Grossman.
