  1. Rams 2018 offseason

    Just like the fact that he is higher than both Case Keenum and Kirk Cousins
  2. Draft Discussion Thread

    I didn't like our first two picks, not sure what to think of Noteboom, would have rather drafted Mason Cole or Alex Cappa. Crosby dropped all the way down to 153, so Cole and Crosby feel like a better fit than Noteboom and Allen. But overall we got Kiser and Obo which were players I really wanted out of this draft with the picks we had. The John Franklin-Meyers pick made no sense to me, but I don't know Texan football like Wade Phillips does. Overall I think I just trust our staff right now, would like to see at least one veteran addition to our LB corp or maybe just resign Barwin at this point. I find it impossible to grade a draft without taking into account the off-season as a whole especially in our case where we traded our 1 for Cooks (better than any WR in this class, believe that) so as long as they move some pieces around and get a deal done with The Great One I am lumping this draft in with our whole off season and giving it an A+!

    Always got account for the guys who come in with a chip on their shoulders and know they have something to prove. I am with you 100%

    Right now I'm betting on Nick Bosa going first overall

    Can we start calling him the Nigerian Nightmare immediately? I am a big fan. He fits Quinn's role perfectly.

    Wade has are pretty good resume with coaching these late draft LBs into useful players. We have a hard working young LB corp. I am not too concerned. With pressure we can put up front and the quality of our DBs we just need some athletic smart guys who follow instructions and don't make stupid mistakes. We have that. Kiser, Jewell, Jefferson all could be available to us and would be great pickups at Linebacker but I also don't think we should pigeon hole our picks at LB. I would love to grab Mason Cole in the fourth or fifth depending on who is available.

    I'm putting a lot of faith in Longacre this year. He stepped up big time when we needed him early last year. Anyone have any news on Barwin? Are we bringing him back?
  8. The future at offensive line

    I feel like it's a good draft to pick up some talent with our late round picks. We have capital for the following years too. Most of the picks we gave up were for this year and our OL is pretty solid at the moment.

    I don't think we can afford to trade Barron now that we traded Tree. We need Linebackers, Linebackers, Linebackers in this draft. Landry or LVE on round 1. Perhaps ideally we can trade out of the first for a couple seconds and double up. Hubbard, Jewel, Oronkwo are all great fits for our scheme. But I would invest some heavy draft capital on the linebacker corp. Harold Landry has been my favorite player for us all year.

I promise to make y'all proud and carry the spirit of TCMD with me throughout the season and through to the Super Bowl where The Los Angeles Rams will become world champions. The history books will say that this is where it all began.
  11. TCMD Discussion!!

    Only signed up to this forum because @BowserBroncos told me about this mock, as a first timer I have to say I really enjoyed it, incredible how much time and effort you guys put in so that we can have a blast mock GMing our teams. I have studied more college tape these last few months than I have in my entire life. Now all that is left is to stare at my roster and daydream about all that it could have been on the field. Thank you and everyone else involved for making this awesome "thing" possible.
  12. 241st pick of the NFL DRAFT (Which I never realized was OTC because this **** got confusing) CODY "THE CONTINENT" O'CONNELL G WASHINGTON STATE whom we will convert to Tackle and see if we can develop into an NFL player. PS: He is so big he can eat pass rushers in a single bite.

    The Los Angeles Rams got into the 2018 offseason with the goal of solidifying the team as a Super Bowl contender over the next couple of seasons. DEFENSE DL One of the main goals was to get Aaron Donald extended which we managed to do getting him and his sacking buddy Michael Brockers extended for four years. Rookie Harisson Phillips was brought in to close the DL, one of the strongest aspects of the defense all three players should cause havoc among OLs for years to come. Another free agent aquisition was Allan Branch who came over after being cut by the Patriots, a rotational piece in the line up who not only gives son of Bum another option inside depending on the situational package as well as bringing in Super Bowl experience to a team that has Super Bowl aspirations in the next two seasons. LBs The linebackers in the Rams team simply did not fit Wade Phillips 3-4 scheme very well, another goal was to bring in players who fit the mold better as well as improving the teams run defense which struggled in 2017, a lot of cap was invested in this positional group so they were used as trade fodder. ROLB Robert Quinn was sent to Tampa for Desean Jackson (more on him later) as well as a third round pick. Quinn had a high price tag for a player who struggled with injuries and was a liability in the run defense. In his place The Rams drafted Sam Hubbard who should play well alongside Aaron Donald, for depth and different situational packages we also plan on using Matt Longacre and veteran acquisition Elvis Dummervil who came over on a veteran minimum contract in free agency. ILB Marc Barron was traded to the 49ers in order to move up in the third round and Eli Harold, another cheap young OLB who played well in the 3-4 in the past. Avery Williamson was the big free agent pickup, one of the leagues best ILB against the run in 2017 Williamson should pair well with Alec Ogletree inside. Brian Cushing who had some great seasons under Wade was brought in on a Vet Minimum contract to add some depth as well as rookie Nick DeLuca, who showed plenty of promise in college but struggled with injury. Finally Anthony Zettel was brough in from the Lions on a trade involving Rodger Saffold. Zettel was the primary pass rusher in a team with Ziggy Ansah, Zettel led the team in QB pressures before his injury, he should translate well from LE to OLB in Wade's scheme, basically an all out pass rusher. Safeties John Jonson last years rookie sensation will return alongside Lamarcus Joyner whom received the Franchise Tag before being extended for another 4 years. CB Aquib Talib arrived on a trade from the Broncos (4th round pick), his best seasons were under Wade Phillips, again another perfect fit for our scheme. Terrance Mitchell and Adam "PacMan" Jones arrived from free agent and will battle Kayvon Webster for that number CB spot. Nickel Robey Coleman got resigned and will remain as the teams primary slot corner, a position he has excelled in. Tavarus McFadden was also drafted, physically very similar to Trumaine Johnson whom the team decided to let go. McFadden has plenty of upside and may develop into that number 2 corner role. OFFENSE Not a lot of changes needed to the highest scoring offense in 2017 QB Jared Goff should continue to develop RB Todd Gurley should continue to hurdle over opponents into the league leading TDs stats TE The Rams will continue to develop their young TEs who should figure more prominently into the teams scheme. Perhaps a free agent acquisition will be brought in before the beginning of the season. WR Sammy Watkins wasn't worth the price tag but he had an important role in stretching the field. So why not the man that did it best under McVay in Washington? Desean Jackson comes into the team hoping to relive his 2016 season in Los Angeles, a perfect fit for the McVay offense who should get the best out of the wideout. Rookie Cedric Wilson was drafted to complete a WR corp that consits of Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp (who we expect to grow upon his great rookie season) and Josh Reynolds who could also develop into a more prominent role after really stepping up last season when Woods went down. Wilson is a very polished route runner and has tons of upside, look for him to be one of the steals of the draft. OL Here we have some significant changes. Andrew Whitworth didn't show signs of slowing down so we hope to have him play at least two more season as one of the league's best LTs.Next to him the Rams will be converting another great veteran tackle to Guard. Jason Peters came in on a sad day for Eagles fans for a measly 5th round pick, after a year of speculation on his conversion to Guard, one of the most consistent LTs in the NFL will be playing in Rodger Saffold's LG in 2018, his quality, leadership and work ethic should compensate for any growing pains of the new position. At Center the Rams lost veteran John Sullivan in free agency and so went with youth in the draft, bringing in Frank Ragnow, the top Center in this years class by a lot of experts, Ragnow was a four year starter in Arkansas and already shows the leadership skills so important to the position, we expect him to grow under the tutelage of Whitworth and Peters into the leader of this line once the two vets are gone. RG Jamon Brown will play in his last year of his rookie contract, the young guard showed a lot of promise in 2017 and will have another year to show he belongs in the Rams OL for years to come. Finally Rob Havenstein will once again return at RT, young strong and like Brown with one more year to prove he can be a franchise tackle. The rest of the acquisitions were for depth as we picked up Max Garcia(Broncos), Andrew Tiller(Saints) and former Rams Tim Barnes makes his return, maybe someone can impress the coaching staff during training camp and fight for a starting spot. That's it for now, vote @Fragafootball and the Los Angeles Rams for some of these awards. Is there a Rookie of the year award?
  14. TCMD Discussion!!

    Did I skip someone? I think I messed up and picked early? I'm confused because there were two picks before mine, but now I see that they were both made out of order

    Pretty much done here guys but here are a few updates, picked up some depth pieces. Added Elvis Dummervil and Brian Cushing on veteran minimum contracts, just some veteran acquisitions to our LB corp, extra situational pieces for Wade to play with. Drafted Nick DeLuca ILB, showed a lot of promise but struggled with injuries. Cedrick Wilson JR WR, another great route runner with NFL pedigree, could play the slot or outside.
