  • Mattia Rizzo

    Jeremy Hill still available in the 4th round right? I’m just thinking about the RB situation in NE and I see him as the missing piece of the puzzle to get the power running game available once again. I kind of like these picks anyway.

    • Erik Lambert

      Colts actually took him already.

      • Mattia Rizzo

        Ok, my bad. I’ve used the word finder of my browser and it didn’t find the name.

        • Erik Lambert

          No biggie. They don’t have a 4th is why.

  • sdtitan

    If we have Barr and Mettenberger when the 4th rolls around, I would be ok with Purifoy, but happier with a RB

  • Rick Talley

    Erik, great draft from the Rams perspective. You know, I’ve become addicted to First

  • Daniel Sutter

    Minnesota and St. Louis look like clear winners thus far lol

    • Erik Lambert

      Don’t forget the Browns.

  • Mike

    Raiders more like below. No need for RB and QB in the first three to four rds. Lambs draft is…well lame…Yes a Lamb hater but no way is Easley and Hageman still around. Actually the Ram draft looks more like my pipe dream draft for the Raiders. But thanks for the efforts…all fun!

  • Jake

    I’m not sure about this Erik. You have the Vikings taking 3 LB’s with their first 6 picks. They don’t need that much help at LB. Already on the roster they have Mauti and Hodges who saw very little action last year and could end up being very good (especially teamed together), then there is Cole who played very well in the few games he started before getting hurt (14 tackles and a sack his first start). And of course Greenway is still playing at a pretty high level. I know people keep trying to say he’s declining but it’s not nearly as bad as they make it out to be (he had a pretty good year last year). They also resigned Larry Dean, Jasper Brinkley and brought in Simoni Lawrence (not that this means they have guaranteed roster spots). I think you’re overestimating their need for LB’s and overlooking their other needs such as CB and S and a solid backup RB. They could easily spend picks in later rounds adding LB depth but I think it’s a stretch to say they would use half their first 6 picks on LB’s.

    • Erik Lambert

      Reilly is not a LB to MIN. He’s got the frame and strength to move to defensive end. Good pass rusher who can get even better.

      • Jake

        Even so, is that a priority for them? With Griffen, Robison and now Wooten on the roster the first three DE spots are locked up. I think they would be better served looking for secondary help here or a number 2 RB.

        • Erik Lambert

          Let me answer that by repeating a great line I heard once. It was when a coach was asked how many points would be required to beat an upcoming opponent. His answer? “More.” I feel the same way about pass rushers. Unless you have a Jared Allen, Robert Quinn or Mario Williams there is no such thing as “enough” men who can rush the quarterback. Besides, don’t forget Mike Zimmer is a wizard with defensive backs and finding running back help is way easier in the late rounds than linemen or linebackers.

  • RONBO19

    O.K Erik, here we go again, Robert Herron over Cody Latimer ? Really??? Come on bro, your better than that.First of all Latimer is shooting up draft boards as fast or faster than anybody after his super impressive pro-day last week where he hit it out of the park. I’m seeing moc’s where he goes late first (a reach to me) or early to mid 2nd. Herron on the other hand is generating zero love so I don’t get this one bro?

    • Erik Lambert

      Think Darren Sproles and you’ll understand.

      • RONBO19

        After seeing Herron at the NFL’s all star game I didn’t think he blew anybody away. If we were to go the smurf route why not Jalen Saunders from Oklahoma who absolutely destroyed Alabama in the bowl game? He’s up to 171 which is still a little on the light side buys he’s fast,explosive and he’s got more moves than E-Lax! I would still be a lot happier with Latimer if he were some how there in the 4th round.

        • Erik Lambert

          Herron played in an offense that didn’t take proper advantage of his skill set or use him as a returner. So it’s easy to see why he looked iffy during that game. Saunders meanwhile played in an offense that was perfect for him: fast, quick-hitting and multi-dimensional. I feel if a West Coast system like the Jets got him on the field between those towers of Benjamin and Decker he would thrive.

          • RONBO19

            Wow! we agree? awesome dude! I have been on Saunders since the Bama game because the Jets have needed a guy like that since Leon Washington grusome leg injury 4 years ago. Saunders is probably the closest thing to Tavon Austin who the Jets wanted badly last year but missed out on when St.Louis jumped ahead of them. Your right I haven’t seen enough of Herron to have a fair opinion so I’ll go with you on this one as obviously you have. Good job Erik!

          • Erik Lambert

            Likewise, Ron.

  • Wayne Davis

    Love this draft Eric as a Vikings fan couldn’t get much better filling needs with great talent

    • Erik Lambert

      Turned out well for them eh?
