The Rams announced that they have signed 23 undrafted rookie free agents to contracts in advance of their rookie minicamp this weekend.

The list of players includes LSU guard T. Bob Hebert, Syracuse guard Michael Hay, Jacksonville State running back Calvin Middleton, Virginia defensive tackle Matt Conrath, Arizona State defensive end Jamaar Jarrett, Texas Tech defensive end Scott Smith, Wayne State tackle Joe Long, Michigan State fullback Todd Anderson, LSU tight end DeAngelo Peterson, Houston linebacker Sammy Brown, Washington State linebacker Alex Hoffman Ellis, Ohio linebacker Noah Keller, UCLA tight end Cory Harkey, Eastern Kentucky cornerback Jeremy Caldwell, UNLV safety Quinton Pointer, Stephen F. Austin linebacker Derrick Choice, Duke safety Matt Daniels (pictured), Virginia safety Rodney McLeod, Oregon State punter John Hekker, Dartmouth running back Nick Schwieger, UMass long snapper Travis Tripucka, Henderson State wide receiver Nicholas Johnson, Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis.

Three members of the group have familial links to professional sports. Hebert is the son of former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert, who made headlines when he lambasted his son’s college coach Les Miles at a press conference following their loss in the BCS Championship Game. Long is the younger brother of Dolphins tackle Jake Long and Tripucka’s grandfather Frank was a star quarterback for the Broncos whose number 18 was recently taken out of mothballs for Peyton Manning.

    I would love to hear his dad’s reaction to Jordan Jefferson getting a contract from the Bucs

    22 of them will be cut or relegated to the practice squad before the season starts.

    Let’s look at this objectively -

    Going into the draft, the Rams two continuing glaring black holes were LT and WR.

    So the passed on Kalil.

    After losing their best WR to the Pats, they fooled around and lost out on Blackmon.

    Passed on Floyd.

    And instead took the 4th best rated DT in the draft.

    Then they took a D2 who will take years to develop.

    And you wonder why the Rams totally suck.

    Any word if we’ve signed any draft picks yet?

    Your logic is flawed. They addressed 3 of the 4 needs in the first two rounds (DT, WR, DB) and got great value in all their draft picks. They also found a good back-up RB in the 2nd round. This isn’t the same Rams that reached for players in the past (like Jason Smith) and instead opted to take players based on their stock value than by their name recognition.

    T-Bob, Daniels, Hay, Hekker and Tripuka all have good shots at finding roster spots. In today’s NFL I wouldn’t be shocked to see a couple more stick.

    Sure hope Hebert can rein in his daddy. If he starts lambasting Fisher the way he did Les Miles, things could get ugly. Jeff’s not the type to grin and bear it.
