Jordan Gross struggled early too.

The transition from college to pro is not easy for anyone. Guys "struggling" this early in the process is no shock. And frankly, as a predictor of his NFL future, it's largely meaningless.

People are way too eager to declare young guys 'boom' or 'bust'. At least let the kid take a snap in an NFL game first.

I'm not saying this because I'm biased I'm saying this because I did a lot of research, but Trai Turner will be the best guard out of this draft class regardless of if Robinson stays at guard or eventually goes back to tackle.

I was re-watching Turners high school tape a few days ago and he just wows. I believe the first or second play he lifts the defensive end completely off the ground lol.

Sure looks like the inept Rams blew what should have been a franchise changing trade with the Redskibs. But, they have parlayed multiple picks into hot garbage.

Didn't they already draft this guy once, only his name was Jason Smith?

Lots of guys start at guard, less of a learning curve and it gives them time to get comfortable without being on an island at tackle.

They paid a shitton of money for Jake Long just last offseason.  Then they decided to resign Saffold, both are really good at their positions.  I guess Saffold depends on his health but I never really understood why they felt the need to take him at #2 unless they were just so convinced by all the mockers that thats what they needed to do.  I assumed he would just start out at RT and maybe move Saffold inside but thankfully not our problem.

I'm thinking more about his confidence. He's pretty raw as it is and moving him to a different position could really do some damage to his confidence. He could be fine it just seems like a shitty move at this moment in time to me

Cowboys are doing the same with Zach Martin. Their "reach" for the center last year paid off.

 

But I can't help but think, they could have drafted Manziel (or Bridgewater), Ealy and Turner instead of Zack and DeMarcus. It'll be interesting to see how their careers develop.

Its not even training camp yet.  You can't judge a lineman's value until he's put time in on the field.

agreeing with anything that Florio says is always a bad idea. Greg Robinson will be a very good OL.

This is probably the best explanation.

 

I remember wondering why the resigned Saffold while having Jake Long, even though Long was hurt.  Guess they have 3 "iffy" tackles now.

 

Jake coming off injury

Think Saffold failed his physical with Raiders

And Robinson rolling on square wheels.

 

I had originally thought they might cut Jake and we could pick him up

That's insane. Look at who the Rams drafted with those picks. They raped the skins on the draft picks alone. What they did with those picks has been equally impressive.

Sure looks like the inept Rams blew what should have been a franchise changing trade with the Redskibs. But, they have parlayed multiple picks into hot garbage.
