The Rams have selected safety TJ Mcdonald at 71st overall out of USC. Like most USC players, he struggled this year but is still an nice talent. Initial impressions are that he is very physical but struggled in coverage and has some tackling issues. Now the Ram’s need to go pick up Quentin Mikell as he happened to play the run VERY well last year. I thought there was a good chance the Rams would go guard here but I still like this.
Round 3 is about to start and there’s been a run of RB’s and Safeties, 2 areas of need for the Rams. What do they do now? It remains to be seen what Snead’s plans are in round 3. I’m not really plugged in on the late guys. You have to look at Quinten Mikell and maybe Charles Woodson to plug in take over this year, while the Rams develop a young safety. The Rams are also apparently pleasantly surprised with Darion Stewart’s progress and development. I’m still concerned, but well… KEEP CALM AND SNEAD ON!
