  • Carriker penciled in as starter at three-technique DT

    Linehan already has penciled in Carriker, who will turn 23 on Sunday, as his starter at the "3-technique" spot, next to the nose tackle.

    "I would love to step in and play right away, but I know it won't be handed to me," Carriker said. "I plan on earning that spot."

    He should be the starter since there is no one else there. Teamed with Glover the Rams could finally have a good duo inside.

        The problem we now have is that Carriker and Glover are both 3 Techniques. I actually think Glover will be used much less this year than many think.

          Who didn't think this would happen? He is a top 15 pick on a shotty D. Expect good things.

            Don't forget Claude Wroten. When it's all said and done, I think we're starting Carriker and Wroten on the interior defensive line. Maybe not to start the season, and maybe not to finish it, but I think that's the future combo they'd like to go with.

              Hopefully they can find a rotation with the guys they have so they can stay on the field longer and be domintating throughout the game.

                Yes but Wroten is similar to Carriker, Wroten played End a lot of the time and that suggests he isn't the NT you look for in a 4-3 scheme

                  <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                  <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                    Wroten is going to be looked at as the future three-technique for this team while Carriker is probably going to replace Kennedy at the nose. Eventually the Rams may simply have left and right defensive tackles instead of specifically having someone cheating to the nose.
