Rams WR Mardy Gilyard is in trouble. He struggled to learn last year's offense and wasn't exactly a stickler for details when he did play. New offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is installing a new and more complex offense and because of the NFL lockout Gilyard will have little time to absorb it all. This will be a big problem for him.
Brandon Gibson also figures to be on shaky turf. The rookies, Austin Pettis and Greg Salas, have the same basic profile as Gibson - taller, more physical receivers. But both figure to be more productive than Gibson. They will run better routes and have more reliable hands. Gibson dropped eight passes last season.
