Tre Mason Tabbed as Potential ‘Breakout Star’ for 2015 NFL season

By Mark Inabinett

St. Louis Rams running back Tre Mason will be one of the NFL’s “breakout stars” during the 2015 season. That’s the prediction of NFL Network analyst Heath Evans.

During an “NFL Now” feature for NFL.com, Evans said of Mason: “Tre kind of had to wait his turn (in 2014). When he got it, you see plays like this. You see the electrifying speed. But you saw a back that really started to get a hang and a knack for what (St. Louis coach) Jeff Fisher was trying to create on the offensive side of the ball. He’s got a big offensive line in front of him. I think he learned to hang on to the ball last year. That ball is precious. You can’t put it on the ground, otherwise an old-school, Jeff Fisher-type coach isn’t going to have you on the field. I look for big things from Tre Mason next year.”

NFL Draft Watch: These 8 Teams Could Help Shape the Top of Round 1

 

By Eric Edholm — Shutdown Corner

There are a handful of teams who can change the tide of Round 1 on April 30 — either by making surprising picks or by making moves up or down that could shift the landscape significantly. We might not know what the effect of these plate tectonics might be, but we certainly can see where the fault lines might lie.

Here’s a look at the teams that significantly could alter how the top of the draft is shaped:

St. Louis Rams (No. 10 overall pick) — The Rams have drafted 28 players the past three seasons (including 13 of those picks in the first three rounds) and could stand to move up if they wanted. That said, they have a mere 6 selections in the draft, sending fourth- and sixth-round choices to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for safety Mark Barron. Sure, the Rams might be content at 10 and could have a choice offensive lineman — it’s a need — fall into their laps, or they could even get lucky and be able to pick a top receiver, such as Amari Cooper or Kevin White, whichever one the Oakland Raiders pass on at 4. But Jeff Fisher’s continual hinting that the Rams’ QB picture is far from complete is intriguing, and it opens up the possibilities of what this team could do.

Rams Mailbag: On the Draft, Free Agency and More –Wagoner

By Nick Wagoner | ESPN.com

EARTH CITY, Mo. — After a busy week at the NFL owners meetings, St. Louis Rams fans on Twitter had plenty of questions, running the gamut from football matters to all things Los Angeles and relocation.

Simon Arnold @simonrarnold
If cooper or white fall do you see fisher going that way even with all the picks they have spent on wr in the past.

@nwagoner: I think it’s a legitimate question to ask. Head coach Jeff Fisher discussed his comfort with the receiver position in Phoenix and he seems to be pretty content with the group in place. But it’s also not out of the realm of possibility that the best player on the board would fall to 10, especially if one of those two somehow made it there. I still tend to think both Kevin White and Amari Cooper are gone, but either could offer the Rams a long-term No. 1 receiver. I also wonder if Fisher would be willing to take another receiver so high, given that Tavon Austin has yet to deliver on the promise of being the No. 8 pick a couple of years ago.
