Rams Will Have 2 of Top 15 Rookies in 2009

What If Sports ran 1000 simulations of the 2009 season to find out which rookies would have the biggest impact.  Two of our own St. Louis Rams were in the top 15.  You guess is as good as mine…

15. James Laurinaitis, LB, St. Louis

I assume they have Laurinaitis penciled in at MLB for the Rams.  James Laurinaitis struggled with very high expectations in college as he piled up great season after great season.  The comparisons to previous Ohio State linebackers are unfair and What If Sports recognizes his impact.

#6: Jason Smith, OL, St. Louis
Jason Smith gets the nod over Andre Smith because he is the better pass blocker. And while Andre’s pass blocking ability is closer to Jason’s than Jason’s run blocking is to Andre’s, protecting the quarterback is crucial in the NFL. All signs seem to indicate that Jason Smith is incredibly talented and yet is still improving. That should pay off for the Rams this season and for many years to come.

Enough said.
