Rams | Linehan pleased with Wroten's progress

Thu, 17 Aug 2006 20:24:50 -0700

Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams head coach Scott Linehan has been buoyed by the steady progress of several young players. Included in that group is rookie DT Claude Wroten, who, Linehan stressed, had taken major strides in practice since the first preseason contest, a 19-17 win over Indianapolis Aug. 10. "He's had his best four or five days," Linehan said. "His improvement from the (Colts) game to where he's playing now has been a highlight." An interior lineman who can pressure the passer is a valued commodity, and that's what Wroten did best at Louisiana State. In two seasons, he rolled up 12 sacks and 34 quarterback pressures.
