Arlen Harris is not very good. Everyone remembers he had 3 TDs that week, no one remembers he had 93 yards on 36 carries.

They'll probably going to move Harris to FB.

Great analysis, C-2. I agree that the Bungals probably made the worst pick. I think that Chris Perry is too slow and is not a power runner. He will be mediocre at best.
I also didn't like the Giants giving up so much for 'a Manning' I know brand names cost more but please keep your heads!
I did't like the Cards taking Fitz, but he is too talented for me to deny picking him. They just have other areas that needed fixing.
I think Martz is an A**! I know that is not an original statement, but I still find myself repeating it.

It seemed to me that a lot of teams seemed to address areas of weakness in the draft this year. Of course we have to wait and see how many of these players are going to cut it or flop.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

The Rams don't have any real needs? How about one of the most important positions in football? Travis Fisher and Jaremetrius Butler, nuff said.


The CB's for the Rams are not bad. They're not shut down corners by any means but they're definitely not a liability. Fisher and Butler have gotten better every year they've played. Fisher's become a solid corner and Butler surprised many. And with Aeneas at FS the Rams secondary isn't bad.

Fisher and Butler are garbage. Fisher is a nickel back at best, and Butler has only suprised people with his lack of game. I can think of maybe 3 tandems in the league I would take them over. Pittsburgh, New York Giants, and maybe Jacksonville. Prolly not even Jacksonville.

Good stuff, CC.

About the Rams needs - how about either line - offense or defense?
I dont want to nitpick the Rams pick too much, but they do have immediate needs they could have addressed rather than using the pick for the future.
