Decisions, Decisions

This has been an interesting couple of days. I wasn't sure what I would write about this week, the draft or the Rams schedule for next year.

Last week the Rams publicly came out and dangled their #2 pick in this years NFL draft. As Rams fans we all know we need a lot of help everywhere. So do you drop from the #2 spot and get quantity instead of quality? It seems the Rams new management and coaching staff appear to think that.

Prior to the draft the Rams as all of the other teams in the NFL like to throw out smoke screens. They try to keep other teams guessing on what they are planning to do. Is there anyone in this years draft that is worth the money the Rams would have to pay in the number two spot? I don't think so.

Linebacker Will Whitherspoon has already been told he will be moving from the middle linebacker position. So do the Rams pay $40 million plus for Aaron Curry from Wake Forest? The Rams could also use Michael Crabtree the WR from Texas Tech. The question is, is that too early to pick him at that spot? I am tending to side with the current Rams staff and would trade down.

Just like me, the Rams are facing questions.

Decisions, decisions. We will have plenty of time to talk about the schedule, the draft is upon us.
