I'm surprised by this. Yes, he is the best corner in the NFL and he's young. I would have thought we could have gotten him for less than we paid. Maybe we view him like a Kahlil Mack talent, which could be close to the truth.
He is FAR better than Peters in that he plays tight from the LOS unlike Peters who gave up huge cushions.

Good too see that they had the stones too correct it and move on. Big upgrade there. I always thought that Wade preferred corners who could play straight man coverage anyway. Peters obviously was not the right one.

Yes there are other greater oline needs. But that doesn’t mean that you don’t address a lesser need when you have the chance. I hope that we don’t regret them letting Peterson get away at corner. Someone will have to step up to play the other side. Let’s see what else is in the Snead bag of tricks.


Coming out of the dark for this big Rams day.

This guy can NOW be a number one pick in the first round.

This is slam dunk for us today.

Slowly backing out...........

GO RAMS!!!

The Good:
It great that we now have Ramsey Island locking down half the field. 8-)
We got rid of my LEAST FAVORITE RAM, MUCUS PETERS!!! :!2: :arrow2: :P

The Bad:
TWO FIRST ROUND PICKS??!!! FOR A CB??? OUCH!!! :(
I sure hope Jalen Ramsey is uber-durable.....ya know, like Jared CrashTestDummy Goff and his titanium bone structure!!! :idea2:

Overall I like the Ramsey move, even if the price was a tad steep (clearly Snead is allergic to First Round Picks eh!!! :lol2: Overall it does show that the Rams Braintrust is working overtime to try to get us into the 2019 Playoffs this year, despite obvious team personnel shortcomings. :idea2:

we got rid of a player that can't play man-to-man for one that is the best man-to-man corner in the business.

In Snead's favor ... 1st round picks aren't as valuable as they used to be.

Defenses and offenses are much more complicated now days and pre-season time keeps getting reduced. Not as much field time, not as much time in pads, not as much team time in the pre-season film room.

It is harder and harder to find a low-first-round pick that step on the field and be an all-pro in his first season.

And ... And ... And ... there has to be some value for making sure that Ramsey didn't end up on the Seahawks, Cardinals, 9ers, or any other NFC team. Now that would really suck.

Two first round picks too much?

Here are the name of the guys we took in the first round the last 3 years:

2017 _____________
2018 _____________
2019 _____________

......and those 3 picks helped us go 27-11 those 3 years (so far).

Snead has changed the landscape of the NFL and shown the value of first round picks isn't what it used to be. High signing bonuses, high salaries and high salary demands towards the end of the rookie deal. And that's if they work out the way they're projected to work out. Better to trade those picks for somebody who is an established talent. Though you still get the high salaries, demands and bonuses, at least they're for a guy you know can play.
