nothing points to it being a Fisher pick

I don't disagree that we had plenty of OL (especially with the additions of Whitworth and Sullivan). But the point is that Snead has been saying for a couple of years that most good NFL OL come from 4th round onward. Ever heard Fisher say any such thing?

I think the Rams drafts have been disjointed under Fisher. Austin in a power running offense? Goff in a power running, run first offense? Now does GRob fit in a run first offense? YOU BET. That was his forte in college.

We know pretty much what McVay wants to run.....the Redskins offense. And the draft looked exactly like that. Flex TE. Bigger sure handed WRs known for getting open. And then D players that more fit Wade's 3-4. While people might argue with the players, the positions and kinds of players had a symmetry to them. No 6'6" 275 lb blocking TEs. No Austin sized WRs.

Everything points towards GRob being a Fisher pick. Nothing that I can think of about that pick follows the philosophy that we've all heard Snead state publicly.

Fisher hired Boudreau to do what Boudreau does, and Boudreau had a long long history before Fisher.

Fisher's previous great OL coach with the Titans was Munchak. He gave those guys a lot of leeway and depended on them. McVay will be doing the same with Kromer.

No matter who has final say, a coach can try and "pound the table" for a pick. We know Martz did that with Kennison in 96.

There's no particular way in which it is is accurate to say Boudreau was a "Fisher guy."

NOTHING points to GR being a Fisher pick, and you certainly haven't named anything that does that. In fact I think you're just adding up a buncha nothing there.

Yes he made the pick, because he was the one with the authority to do that, but he picked the guy Boudreau wanted.
