It’s only one meaningless pre-season game, but George Selvie looked like the George Selvie in his pro debut last week when his St. Louis Rams took on the Minnesota Vikings.
The 7th round pick from USF caused some havoc reminiscent of his days with the Bulls when he picked up a sack, forced a fumble and kept constant pressure on the Viking quarterbacks when he was in there.
It was reminiscent of his sophomore year at USF when he caught the football world by surprise and earned All-American honors in a banner season.
Unfortunately, his production dropped the next two seasons, particularly his senior year in 2009 and his stock fell. But for at least one night against a Vikings squad that did not have Brett Farve or running back Adrian Peterson, he showed a lot of promise.
Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo praised Selvie for his play and noted how he came across the field on one play to make a tackle. In a scrimmage this week, he noted the defensive end had what would’ve been at least two sacks and a safety in a regular game.
The head coach is looking for consistency from his young guys. Selvie will get a chance to show some of that tonight against Cleveland in the Rams second pre-season game a
