What's going on Rams Nation, It been a great ride this season where we came up a little short at the end. Now it's time to continue to build another Super Bowl Contender. In this offseason I am going to be a little aggressive like I feel our Front Office might be.
ILB Mark Barron
I have been a huge fan of Mark over the years, but it's just time for a change. We need a real run stopper in the middle next to Littleton.
Edge Dante Fowler Jr
OG Rodger Saffold
ILB Bryce Hager
S Blake Countess
ILB Cory Littleton - Second Round RFA Tender
CB Dominique Hatfield - ERFA Tender
RS Jojo Natson - ERFA Tender
DL Morgan Fox - ERFA Tender
CB Kevin Peterson - ERFA Tender
WR KhaDarel Hodge - ERFA Tender
In this scenario the Rams are able to come to an agreement on two very fair and reasonable deals for Dante and Roger. With Whitworth coming back for one more run, this gives us the same starters once again on offense. We decide to let Joyner, Suh and Shields go in order to take advantage of the free agency opportunities.
ILB Anthony Barr
The Rams grab their new run stuffing veteran in Barr that we have we lacking with Barron. Barr is a nice pick up because Wade can move him around and also have him rush the passer. We can utilize his strengths as a strong tackler, block shedder and strong pass rusher. Anthony won't have to worry about pass coverage much as Littleton is actually really good in pass coverage last season. Barr come back home to help add to an already very dangerous defense.
FS Tre Boston
Tre opened the Rams eyes very good this past season with Arizona as he was lighting up Cooks on multiple plays. Tre feels in perfectly in Joyner's spot as a playmaking free and deep safety. Boston gives Wade another sure handed play maker in the back field. We grab him so a great deal as everyone is focused on the Big Three Safties in Earl, Landon and Tyrann.
CB Jason Verrett
The Rams grab another very good low profile baller in Jason Verrett. Jason has had a very good career and is only 28 years old still. Before his back to back injuries he was getting a name for himself as a shut down corner. The Rams grab him a cheap prove it deal where Jason has a chance to come back and try and get back to his pre injuries form. He will come in and compete for the nickel spot just like Sam did last season. If Verrett stays healthy and gets back to his old form, then we will already have another starter on the roster will Peters and Talib options come up next year.
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
The Rams sign Ryan to a 1 year deal to be Goff's bag up and security blanket. Ryan has had a lot of starting experience in this league, he could be a good veteran to help Goff with. Now if Blake Bortles becomes a free agent, I would love to sign him to a cheap deal while his stock is so low right now.
Rams trade Round 1 Pick #31
Jaguars trade Round 2 Pick #6 and Round 3 Pick #5
The Jaguars trade up in front of the Giants in order to grab the player of a position of need.
Rams trade Round 3 Pick #5 and Round 3 Pick #37
Cowboys trade Round 2 Pick #26
Rams move up for a guy that they have been targeting. The Cowboys jump back in order to grab in other pick to try and feel in some gaps from their free agency losses.
Round 2 Pick #6 Jeffrey Simmons-DT, Mississippi State
The Rams because of a bad break are able to brag a Top 15 talent at the top of the 2nd because of his injury. Jeffrey will most likely miss this season, or at least most of the season. But the Rams are in a position to grab an extremely talented stud and let him get healed similar to what the Cowboys did with Jaylon Smith. Simmons when ready will truly replace Suh and will give our defensive line an extremely dangerous look. Donald and Jeffrey in the middle will have head coaches having nightmares at night, lol. Wade Phillips can move Simmons all over the line to give us multiple looks.
Round 2 Pick #26 Oshane Ximines-Edge, Old Dominion
The Rams jump back into the 2nd to grab another defensive weapon for Wade Phillips. Now Wade will have another pass rush specialist opposite Fowler on pass rushing downs. Oshane has the intangibles to play multiple spots giving Wade another piece to his board. Oshane can learn the NFL spend behind Samson while he comes in as a rotational rush specialist. This draft is giving Wade his best young and talented group of talent. Wade is trying to create another Denver Broncos Super Bowl winning Defense.
Round 3 Pick #31 R.J. Johnson-NT, Arizona
R.J. will come in and take over the gap left by Suh at Nose Tackle. Johnson is a big run stuffer that also has an explosive couple steps and a good motor. He uses his body leverage very well and he shields block well. Playing next to AD and Brockers will help his adjustment to the NFL with most of the focus on the others. The future will look bright as our line for years to come will look like AD, Johnson and Simmons. R.J. is athletic enough to be moved all over the defensive line also.
Round 4 Pick #31 Ross Pierschbacher-C/G, Alabama
The Rams decide to grab another very talented offensive talent in this years draft. Now Ross can come in and learn behind Sullivan and compete with Brian Allen for the future starting spot. Ross is extremely talented, he is a very good run blocker and a good pass protector. Learning from the vets will serve him well.
Round 5 Pick #31 Rodney Anderson-RB, Oklahoma
The more and more film that I have watched on Rodney just gets me more and more excited. We grab another super talented playmaker that is only here this late in the draft possibly because of his injury history. If Anderson can stay healthy he would give McVay a very nice little rotational weapon whenever Todd needs a breather. This kid can be another nice running and pass catching weapon for us.
Round 6 Pick #31 Brett Rypien-QB, Boise State
The Rams take a flyer on a developmental QB late in the draft. Brett has an NFL Blood line and some nice intangibles in order for Sean to try and develop.
