Looking Ahead: Tight Ends

With the Rams completely out of contention this season, and everyone already looking ahead to the Rams Super Bowl (also known as The NFL Draft), it is already time to take a look at where the Rams roster stands for 2012 and beyond.  Today, we are going to take a look at the tight ends.

2012 Starter: Lance Kendricks – The Rams drafted Lance Kendricks in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft and so far he has only flashed his potential ability in the Rams offense.  It may take him 1-2 more years, but he has all the skills to be a dynamic, athletic receiving tight end in any offense.

2012 Depth: Mike Hoomanawanui is a game-changing talent when he can stay healthy.  Unfortunetly, he will only play 16 games over his first two seasons with multiple injuries.  His combination of size, strength and hands makes him a solid blocker and a great target in the passing game.  The Rams also have Ben Guidugli on the practice squad for depth next year.  The Rams probably will part ways with Billy Bajema, who has been less solid as a blocker this year and his main responsibility with the Rams is to block.  They should also let go of Stephen Spach, who I have no idea why he is on the roster.

2012 Needs: Mike Hoomanawanui’s knee injury might put him on the shelf for part of training camp and maybe the season and the Rams will need a stand in for him there.  But, other than that, the Rams should pick up an under the radar blocking tight end to fill in their tight end corps.
