NFC West Draft arms race
Thu May 08, 2014 6:25 pm
  • AZ jumps ahead of the game, successfully adding a 3rd round pick. STL was rather pedestrian in their two first round picks, especially the bland DT selection.

    Yet to be determined, Santa Clara and Seattle.

    Really? Taking the best OT & DT in the draft is "pedestrian"?

    No kidding. Still, I am glad they didn't grab Watkins. Also, very glad all their pre draft bullshit about Manziel was just smoke, and ecstatic that they did not spin that 2nd pick into another blockbuster trade like RGthree.

  • We couldn't block the Rams defensive line last season. They just drafted a player that will make that line better mean while we jettisoned our starting RT and traded our first round pick to help the vikings finally get a QB? Let's wait and see who we end up with before we start criticizing another team's draft picks.

    Totally agree on all points..I was going to throw out a bunch of cuss words if Houston passed on Clowney and the Rams raked in a blockbuster deal AGAIN....and all from the trade from RG3....how many extra picks have they gotten now from that one trade?

    Fo' real...those were exactly the picks I would have made if I were St. Louis. They are raking up the talent down there and their D-Line just got a lot more scary, which is bad for our O-line (especially if we have an injury there) and Wilson. They were pretty unstoppable last year.

  • Someone suggested that the Rams defense is the reason we traded for Pryor-so we can keep Russell Wilson in one piece.

  • Describing the Rams' picks as "pedestrian" was not criticizing their picks, especially after researching Donald a little more. It was merely a lack of "wow" factor, other than the fact they were the #2 and #13 pick overall; of course they are good prospects. Pedestrian: "lacking inspiration or excitement; dull"

    I still think AZ has done the best thus far, relative to what they had to work with. Adding the 3rd Rder and still landing Bucannon appears successful. Santa Clara's addition of Jimmie Ward qualifies as "pedestrian" as well, especially considering all the money the spent on Bethea. LOB envy running rampant in the NFC West.

    Hawks did what they wanted on Day 1; avoid having to take anyone. Also, relatively boring, but necessary.

    Day 1 grade:
    AZ: B+
    SC: C
    STL: B
    SEA: INC

  • To me, O-Line has absolutely got to be a priority. Normally we could wait until later, however it would be nice to add a guy right away that they feel will contribute immediately.

    I don't think that guy exists anymore. Cyrus is the only guy left I'd be comfortable penciling in ahead of Bowie, and he's got major injury concerns. The rest are all athletic but raw small school projects and mediocre sloppy big school guys. After James, it was a pretty steep drop in the tackle department.

  • Every single team got WAY better in the NFC West this offseason. I could see almost any team winning the division now.

    +1

    To me what is worse than no QB is a mediocre one. Look at Minnesota and Ponder. They should have sucked it up one more year and gotten a real qb. Drafting up for a mediocre / bad qb obviously didn't help
