The only real options are Glover and Wroten. Glover, though aging, has at least shown he's capable of doing something on the field. Wroten has not only not lived up to the potential, but hasn't done anything of note.
What's interesting is that some Rams fans I've seen post around the 'net have advocated for Dorsey because of the impact he could have on Wroten. To me, it seems the likely impact that Dorsey's drafting would have on Wroten is putting him that much closer to the chopping block.
Jim Thomas has said that Jim Haslett might of turned a light on with Wroten, he was at Rams Park every day this offseason working out........So, that's at least some what promising.
I really have a hard time seeing this team carry five DTs. Even if Carriker saw some snaps at DE on run downs, that would still be hard to justify, especially on gameday.
I agree 100%. There is simply no way they will carry 5 DT's. When is the last time anyone has carried 5 DT's for gameday? The last team to run the 5-2? I also agree that the assertion that Dorsey would help Wroten is stupid. In fact, that would almost certainly signal that Wroten is being traded, put on the practice squad, or released, because he is on the bottom of the totem pole of 5 DT's. That would be 9 defensive linemen on the active roster, that's not happening.
I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.
Here is my take. It would not surprise me if the Rams take Vernon Gholston. In the back of my mind, its what I've been figuring they would do for a while now. But even I would be shocked if they take Gholston with Chris Long still on the board should the Dolphins go with Jake Long.
As for the Rams trading down for Gholston, IMO thats not going to happen unless they can sucker Arthur Blank, and that would only be one selection.
I mean, who would the Chiefs trade up for? Jake Long wouldn't be there and while they could use help at DT, do they realliy need help THAT BADLY as to warrent trading up? If you're a Chiefs fan, which would you prefer, Sedrick Ellis/Ryan Clady/Matt Ryan/Brandon Albert at #5 or having to give up a second or a second and a third to trade up, not for Jake Long, but Glenn Dorsey?
As for the Jets, they have plenty of needs, but the glaring needs have essentially all been addressed in free agency. They could use a pass rusher, but they already signed Calvin Pace for a bajillion dollars. They could use a #2 corner, but that might be a reach at #6, much less a trade up. They could use an explosive playmaker in McFadden, but because they have Thomas Jones and Leon Washington already, they don't need McFadden that badly. And many of those other lesser needs (such as CB, or 3-4 DE or 3-4 OLB or maybe even OL) can be addressed with the only other day 1 pick the Jets have and would probably have to surrender in order to trade up.
Either right guard or right tackle depending on what they plan to do with Damien Woody and their opinion of Brandon Moore.
