Rams Select Michael Hoomanawanui, TE Illinois

I must say I am not a big fan of this selection. All of the good tight ends left were taken in the 4th round the Rams should have moved back into the 4th round to get one, instead they take a blocking tight end. The Rams have far too many needs for this selection.

From DraftCountDown:

Strengths:
Good height and bulk with long arms --- Big, reliable hands --- Strong and Powerful --- Terrific Blocker --- Stout at the point of attack --- Gets a good push in the run game --- Able to fit in space --- Knows how to use size to his advantage --- Uses hands well --- Tough and can take a hit --- Runs hard after  the catch and will break tackles --- Team  Player.

Weaknesses:
Just average speed --- Not real explosive and lacks a burst --- Isn't a polished route runner --- Doesn't get much separation --- Not a vertical threat who will stretch the field --- Isn't very elusive --- Some issues with conditioning --- Was not  very productive --- Upside is likely limited.
