Alex Barron To Play Left Tackle

During OTAs Alex Barron played left tackle with the first unit while Jason Smith the number 2 pick in the 2009 draft was playing with the second unit at right tackle. Barron is in the last year of his contract and the Rams seem determine to see if they may want to sign him long term. it would be nice to make these decisions without effecting the status and playing location of Jason Smith. Left tackle is the position that Barron played while at Florida State however the Rams drafted him and placed him immediately at right tackle. The Rams have played quiet a few players out of position over the last few years and it does not work well. Now that super genius Scott Linehan is no longer driving this bus I hoped some things would change. Jason Smith should start at left tackle and Barron can show us if he is good enough to play right tackle in the future for the rams, or we can turn the job over to Adam Goldberg. After going 2-14 spending 50+ million on a draft pick to play right tackle does not make a lot of sense.

With the salary cap era no one wants to hear the term rebuilding but the St. Louis Rams are still rebuilding don't fool yourself. This team is considered to have one of the worst receiving cores on paper. In addition the Rams are still lacking depth and potential starters at linebacker and in the secondary.
