Player Of the Month
Adam Carriker

The Rams got their man in the first round of this years draft. Carriker will come in and be an iunstant starter most likely and he will help out on an improving defense.

Saturday, April 14, 2007
With an average of 7.2 million needed in salary cap space to sign one's draft picks last year, and that number expected to be closer to 8 million this year, here is the salary cap status of all 32 teams:
1. Minnesota, $25.0 million
2. Buffalo, $22.6 million
3. Cleveland, $21.8 million
4. Tennessee, $19.6 million
5. Green Bay, $15.8 million
6. San Francisco, $13.7 million
7. Jacksonville, $12.9 million
8. Dallas, $11.9 million
9. St. Louis, $11.2 million
10. New Orleans, $11.1 million
11. Philadelphia, $10.4 million
12. New York Jets, $10.1 million
13. Miami, $8.9 million
14. Oakland, $8.3 million
15. Cincinnati, $7.8 million
16. Carolina, $7.0 million
17. Seattle, $6.6 million
18. San Diego, $6.4 million
19. New England, $6.3 million
20. Denver, $5.9 million
21. New York Giants, $5.8 million
22. Chicago, $5.1 million
23. Tampa Bay, $4.9 million
24. Kansas City, $4.6 million
25. Washington, $3.9 million
26. Indianapolis, $3.7 million
27. Baltimore, $3.6 million
28. Detroit, $3.6 million
29. Atlanta, $3.1 million
30. Arizona, $2.8 million
31. Houston, $2.6 million
32. Pittsburgh, $1.4 million.

Obviously, the Rams do have some cap. If they sign Corey Dillon or trade for Kris Jenkins before the draft, they won't have quite as much but should be fine.
If the plan for the first round is defensive line, here may be some numbers fans can look into:
Last year, the Eagles drafted DT, Brodrick Bunkley 14th overall. Bunkley signed a 6 year, $17.5 million contract. The deal included $7.46 million in guarantees. The overall worth can expand to as much as $25.1 million if all escalators are reached.
Also last year, the Kansas City Chiefs drafted DE, Tamba Hali 20th overall. Hali signed a five year deal that totaled around $4 million
If the plan does go to a WR, the only one WR drafted in the first round was Santonio Holmes, 25th overall. Holmes signed a five-year, $8.11 million contract. The deal includes $5.42 million in bonuses.

If they go the defensive route in round one, it will save a bunch of money towards the cap. But with roster cuts to come, they should be under cap at season start even with whoever they chose to draft.
