    And i can honestly say that I don't expect Bulaga to make it out of the top-15....there could easily be 4 tackles taken in the top 8....Im still hoping for Earl Thomas or that McClain falls to maybe 10-11 and we trade up...

    Actually live and breath UF im in Fort Myers

    We will see on Olsen i just like the attitude he has.... If Campbell and any other OL make the top 15 someone has to fall to us... Everyone cant take an OL...

    Maybe we can get Campbell or Bulaga

    I would rather trade down and get Spikes than trade up for McClain.

    I hear you....you just went up a bit in my book haha....I'm a gators fan aswell...and I used to live in Ft. Myers, Naples, and Ocala(used to move a lot as a kid)...

    I would be happy with Bulaga bit I would be extremely pissed if Bruce Campbell was the pick...I used to like him but he is just like Taylor Mays...he has all the physical tools to play LT(sh*t he could play Tight end too) but he's just not good...he looks so lost out there most of the time...he is ok in pass protection but is down right horrible in the run game...I wouldn't touch him in the first....I might not even take him before the third...he's just not good

    Offensive Linemen who could be gone by #18.

    2. Detroit - Russell Okung, Oklahoma State

    5. Kansas City -Bryan Bulaga, Iowa

    8. Oakland - Bruce Campbell, Maryland

    9. Buffalo - Anthony Davis

    13. San Francisco - Trent Williams

    17. San Francisco - Mike Iupati

    note: Washington (#2), Denver (#11), Seattle (#14), New York Giants (#15), and Tennessee (#16) could also be in the mix for either a tackle or Mike Iupati (Denver and Tennessee for Iupati)

    It really looks like an offensive linemen in the first may be out of the question without trading up. I think Trent Williams is too much like Willie Colon, and isn't a good left tackle prospect. I think you almost have to cross him off the list. I think Anthony Davis may be the most likely to fall to us at this point. If he's there, I think he has to be the pick. Boom or bust though, seems to be a bit of an immature kid.

    if this happens, then we will have a good shot at some great Defensive Players.

    plus if the rams pick a QB that will force another solid player toward the 18 pick.

    Rams are looking hard...

    Rams to Meet With Bradford Tonight
    Howard Balzer of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat reports that Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford will meet with the St. Louis Rams tonight.

    "Rams will meet with Sam Bradford tonight. Bradford came off poised and personable with the media today. He has 'it'", Balzer posted to Twitter.

    Weather it's the Rams, Redskins, Seahawks, Bills, Broncos, or 49ers, Clausen and Bradford will both be drafted at some point prior to 18th.

    G/T Mike Iupati: Idaho

    I can't believe this guys gets mentioned as someone the steelers would take at 18. I think others noticed how poorly he showed at the senior bowl. I think Kansas City was hoping Brandon Albert was going to possibly become a tackle and they took him early too. How did that turn out for them? I think the fact that they appear to be targeting a tackle this year means things didn't go so well. I am not trying to say he stinks or anything, but we got to do better than that at 18.

    Something everyone needs to realize about Mike Iupati is he is still learning English. The crash course these players go through in just one week of preparation at the Senior Bowl is tough for all the players. Immagine also struggling with the English. I would be a whole different case if he was in training camp, and then practice throughout the year.

    Iupati really only struggled when he wasn't in his natural left guard position. At LG he played fine.

    He is a top 20 pick.

    if all these OL players go before #18

    Earl will be there and a few other good defensive players for sure.
    I like the pick for Earl Thomas.

    If only Haden is picked as the top CB. Is Wilson or Robinson worth the #18

    I still think Mays will be a good player at Safety/ILB/ST

    he is a guard.. a top one in the ratings.

    do we need a guard?

    or do we need a tackle and flex one of our tackles to a guard position?
