mix of free agents and draft picks

no way they go in with NB 6 starts, Evans, no starts (maybe he gets a few), Allen 16 starts and and Edwards (12 starts).

Too risky for a team with a playoff window.

Yeah there's a way they will do that...again.

Teams with playoff windows do that all the time.

Look at the Patz.

I don't think it's a case of "no way THEY will do that." It's much more of a case of "no way GAMO would do that."

If you look around the league at offensive line construction, what you say doesn't work, works all the time. As it will with the Rams. I mean they invested all this time in these young guys to get them to develop, why would they just throw that out just when it's starting to pay off.

See, there's only so many experienced OL you can buy cheap and insert. Most of the guys you can get (draft, waiver wire, cast-offs) have not started a lot of games. One effect of that is that there are always teams who field inexperienced guys, get them up and going, and make it work. It's the hardcore reality of line building in the era of the cap. One study shows that ON AVERAGE teams replace up to 3 linemen every 2 years. So where in any given 2 year period are the 96 (3 x 32) experienced linemen that teams are supposed to get?

And with the issues the Rams face with the cap, they are not very likely to get expensive FAs.
