View Full Version : 1st Annual All-Time Rams Draft
02-18-2008, 05:10 PM
This draft is like any other fantasy draft, but the player you select must have played for the Rams Organization. When you select a player try and post a picture of the player and some info on the player. This way we will have an idea of how good the player was with the Rams. Only select the player for what he did with the Rams and not with any other team. For example a player like Joe Namath played most of his carrer with the Jets but did play a year for the Rams and did not do much so he would not be a good selection. The order will go from 1 to 4 and 4 to 1 like other drafts.
Here is the layout of your team and what you need to complete your team:
1. NGSeiler - DE Deacon Jones
2. holtfan92 - DT Merlin Olsen
3. Freebirdsrams02 - OT Jackie Slater
4. KCJ58 - DE Jack Youngblood
5. KCJ58 - RB Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch
6. Freebirdsrams02 - CB Dick "Night Train" Lane

With the first pick of the 1st Annual All-Time Rams Draft, I select...
Defensive end, 1961-1971
One of the quickest and toughest defensive ends in NFL history, Jones is currently enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was an eight time Pro Bowl and eight time All Pro selection. He unofficially accumulated 26 sacks over 14 games with the Rams in 1967, which would be a single season record. Jones, named to the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1994, claims to have finished his career with over 173 sacks, which would rank third all time in the league.

I can't really do this sorry.. i've been a bit busy lately.

Well it looks like this thing is going to be a bust. Maybe we can do it later or I will try it on the Mork Draft thread to see if there is anymore guys that would like to draft.

Maybe we can just work together to create the roster for an All-Rams team?
02-26-2008, 10:36 PM
That could work. We could pick a postion and go one by one to fill a roster. Lets start with the D-L since we already have a few picked from the draft.
Here's what I would say so far.
DE - Deacon Jones
DT - Merlin Olsen
DT - ????????????
DE - Jack Youngblood
