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!
My name is Clayton and I am teenage sports fan residing in SW Missouri. I’ve been a sports fan all my life, but baseball is my prominent passion. Especially the St. Louis Cardinals ever since those Scott Rolen and Edwin Encarnacion days. I’m also an avid football and, most recently, hockey fan. I’ve been a dedicated Rams fan since I dominated with Marshall Faulk in the old Madden games as a kid. I started following the Blues after reading about the incredible story of the 1960 U.S Olympic Hockey Team and their gold medal run against the Soviet Union. I love the grit and toughness of the National Hockey League. Those guys are real athletes. I’m a big fantasy baseball and fantasy football player on ESPN and I love debating and talking about the Cardinals, Rams and Blues with my friends. I’m an extremely gifted and intelligent student and have been told I’m a talented writer. I have aspirations in sports journalism.
I got the idea to start a sports blog partially from recommendations from peers. I also read Bleacher Report and have realized that I have my own opinions and analysis that could be worth publishing. Let’s be clear, this is not a news reporting blog. The news itself will be out in credible ways through mediums like ESPN and other reporters. This blog is designed for reactions and opinions, and maybe a little bit of a different take on things. I’m trying to put out different content that you just might not find anywhere else. I’ll add other off topic posts because frankly, there is more to life than sports. Although sometimes times like March Madness might dictate other wise. This sight will primarily be for Cardinal content, but don’t worry, I get my Rams and Blues crave too. The content will grow as I grow as a writer and as the blog grows. I’m doing this because I enjoy this, nobody is paying me.
