2018 Expansion Draft - Rams

Recommended Posts

Imagine a new team is being ushered into the league. Every team has to pick 5 players from its roster. Designated players will be pooled (32 teams, 5 players each for a total of 160 players) and be made available to the new team via the Expansion Draft. From the total pool (and current list of Free Agents), the new franchise will pick (or “draft”) a full 53-player roster for the 2018-19 season.

Typically, teams offer up players they’re actively looking to get rid of (declining performance, age, salary). 

 

Designation Rules:

No kickers and punters.

No players set to become free agents.

No players who just spent an entire year on injured reserve.

Only one player with 10 or more years of experience.

 

That being said... What 5 players would you offer up for the 2018-19 season? Why?

This is sort of a tough time to do this exercise. For one every team is currently at 90 players, so its pretty easy to throw some of those guys. And for two, we just made the moves to get rid of most of those contracts before the draft. Question would be, how are soon to be Restricted Free Agents treated? Could they be part of the pool?

But Ill go with guys who are likely(ish) to be on the 53 man roster

  1. Mark Barron LB - We've all been OK with cutting him all offseaon, he has alot of money left on the next few years of his contract
  2. Justin Davis RB - We drafted a backup RB, this leaves Davis as expendable even though some were excited about him
  3. Mike Thomas  WR - Still hasnt done much, and what he has was disappointing, probably will never crack the top WRs
  4. Temarrick Hemmingway TE - 3rd TE, some might even say Higbee here, but very expendable
  5. Tanzel Smart DL - Some would disagree, but I think this draft pick is a miss, he isnt what we thought he was

 

After doing that, you would have to expand this to a list of 8-9-10 players for most teams (especially if RFAs could be added) for an expansion team to get any real talent.
