If the Rams draft Dorsey, Carriker would play NT and Dorsey would play UT.
Just what I was going to say. I don't want to jump all over you, because many people seem to think Carriker would just move back to end. That would always be an available option, but it's far from ideal, as Carriker is better suited for DT. Unless absolutely no better options are available at DE, Carriker is staying at DT unless its obvious running situations. If Carriker does end up being the best option at DE, I think it's a result of poor player personell decisions, not a desire to have Carriker at DE.
If they take Dorsey in First I think they need to still take a DE in the 2nd. If they take Chris Long then they can go elsewhere in the 2nd.
That is my thinking. It's just one more thing I don't really like about taking Dorsey. It moves every other need down one round in the draft, because they have to take a DE in the 2nd IMO. Here's the comparisons.
3. BPA at WR/OT
4. BPA at WR/OT (position not taken in 3rd)
2. BPA at WR/OT
3. BPA at WR/OT/maybe DB or LB (position not taken in 2nd)
4. BPA or WR if none have been taken
I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.
In all honesty the Rams would have loved any of Long, Dorsey or Gholston. In fact the Rams had the most influential pick in Rd 1 because whoever they took hd a huge factor on what the next 4 teams would do.
I personally would have taken Gholston but If I was in Billy Devaney's shoes Chris Long was the best pick.
