In my estimation, the pick of Lynch in the fifth round was a risky pick. But, it seems that the team did the required due diligence and if we consider the fact that the team had sources with direct knowledge of Lynch that they knew and trusted, I would say that the team went beyond the required due diligence.
They took a risk on a fifth round pick. There is no need to rush to judgment. We will see, sooner or later, if they made a good call--and that pertains to the entire draft.
For me the picking of Sam by the Rams has no particular importance.
I have absolutely no insight as to their motives for picked Sam, but barring some evidence to the contrary, and speculation does not constitute evidence, I have no choice but to think that drafting Sam was a legitimate football decision.
Could be right on Sam. I just think the league wanted to do something to not appear homophobic. I could be entirely wrong. I just don't buy that he was a legit prospect since this offseason.
what a joke of a statement
Yeah Roger Goodell made the rams take him cause he was gay
Maybe if he was taken in the first 3 rounds you would have some kind of point but the dude was drafted 8th from last.
The rams had 4 picks in the 7th round
His ESPN draft grade was 43 (26 other players were selected in Rnd 7 with a lower grade)
16 players with a lower draft grade were taken in Rnd 6
He was projected in rounds 3-4 before his poor showing at the combine and dropped
If the rams didn't take him he would have singed with another team after the draft
If the rams think they can get him into shape he has potential
If he doesn't put in the effort needed in the nfl he will be cut like any other 7th rounder that didn't pan out.
