Curry Helps Out the Rams WR Core

The Rams WR core got another addition Wednesday with the trade for Ronald Curry. The deal was broken down by Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc., and here’s what he says about the addition:

My initial impressions off the bat is that Harris is worth nothing. Apparently he is the new commodity in the league so you look like you are getting something in return. The Lions just traded for Dennis Northcutt. Curry was going to be a slot guy. They just drafted Derrick Williams from Penn State in the third round, a returner and slot guy. Where does Curry fit? Northcutt is an ideal slot guy. That leaves Curry as the fifth receiver on a good day. My guess was that Detroit was not very excited about Curry when they got their hands on him.

As far as the Rams, I don’t know if there is a worse group of receivers in the league than what St. Louis has, at least on paper. They are so young. I wouldn’t have any problem adding veterans, especially ones that have some size [Curry is 6-2 and 210]. Donnie Avery is a burner. I don’t know how long they are going to protect. I expect them to control the ball — they have a defensive-minded head coach — get the ball out quick, utilize bigger receivers who can run after the catch.

Curry is that guy if he can stay healthy. Good hands, really athletic. Played point guard at North Carolina. He has been a real project since he came into the league. He had a couple good years with the Raiders and then he just keeps getting hurt. To the Rams, it’s worth it. They didn’t give anything up.
