Actually, I liked what Charlie did for the Rams.
He picked QB Connor Cook in the first round for the Rams and then selected a WR
for their first pick in the second round. I liked the WR pick at #38 for the
Ravens better than his #41 selection for the Rams because he, Josh Doctson, was
faster than Tyler Boyd and could get better separation. A big problem the Rams
have is that their receivers can't get separation.
38. Ravens: </span>Tyler
Boyd, WR, Pittsburg-6’2”,190 LBS-has
speed to go with his size, was impressive
against good defensive backs in 2014, including Virginia Tech's tough secondary, broke some of Larry Fitzgerald’s freshman records.
41. Rams-Josh Doctson WR TCU-6’3’,195 LBS-big
strong WR, good in end zone, but lacks speed, and may not gain separation
against NFL backs.
Since the Rams lost this week and the Ravens won,
they have the same record now, but the Ravens beat the Rams. So now the Rams
would be picking before the Ravens.
Must do a better job of throwing his big body around down low
Limited range with his jump shot
Offensive post up game needs to be fine tuned
Free throw shooting
Tends to commit dumb fouls
Summary: Despite coming off the bench all season long, Orton has declared for the 2010 NBA Draft. He has shown the ability to be a solid defender but has a long way to go before he is a factor at the next level on the offensive end. Still, his big body and potential should be enough for him to be a first-round pick although it is highly unlikely that he will make an immediate impact for whichever team takes him.
Player Comparison: a poor-man's Marcus Camby. Camby has been one of the best rebounders and shot blockers in the NBA for the past decade-plus. Orton will not be that much of an impact player but should make a living in the league by crashing boards and blocking shots and not because of his offensive game, just like Camby.
