Larry Grant opened Friday's practice as the strongside linebacker on the No. 1 defense.
Chris Draft was in the middle, which figures to be Jim Laurinitis' spot in the near future. Draft is expected to shift to the strongside, but Rams coaches would be happy if Grant plays well enough to shove the veteran into a reserve a role.

Did we over look Grant?, this could just be fascinated with Ohio State products, Antonio Pittman and James Laurinaitis for example. This could also just be the Rams still inept front office, rating this guy a mid-round pick, when Grant barely got picked in the draft to begin with.
