Word is the recent free-agent signings of QB

A.J. Feeley and DT Fred Robbins appear to have tipped the Rams' first-round draft scale decidedly more in the direction of a quarterback than a defensive tackle. "Absolutely," one team insider said of the odds shifting more toward Sam Bradford than either Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy with this year's first overall pick. "Feeley looks like the epitome of a 'bridge' quarterback, and Robbins — who the Rams believe still has something left in the tank — gives the Rams four tackles, if you also include Adam Carriker. Clifton Ryan is considered an ascending player at the position, and Dorell Scott came on late in the season." The Rams continued to focus on serviceable veterans in free agency with the addition of 10-year veteran Hank Fraley, who we hear could get a legitimate shot competing for the starting ORG spot vacated by Richie Incognito. "At the very least, he should be a helluva backup center behind Jason Brown," the insider said of Fraley.
