DRAFT BUZZ: With free-agent RBs Sammy Morris and Marcel Shipp off the board, the Rams' options for a No. 2 running back may have to be filled via the draft. Lorenzo Booker is one possibility, but the Rams might have to use a second-round pick to get him. Signing Hall as a free agent doesn't preclude the team from taking an edge rusher such as Purdue's Anthony Spencer. Louisville DT Amobi Okoye would be a logical choice for the Rams at No. 13 overall if he's still available. But some in the Rams' organization wonder if Okoye is more "three-technique" tackle than nose, which is the team's greatest need. Tank Tyler of North Carolina State is more of a "classic" nose tackle, although he doesn't have the upside of the 19-year-old Okoye. But 13 is too high for Tyler, so the team probably would want to trade down if he's their targeted player.
No announcement yet.
