Default "Veterans let Avery know he has to prove himself"

Quote:
Seven-time Pro Bowler Torry Holt wasn't inclined to grant fellow wide receiver Donnie Avery, the Rams' second-round pick in last month's draft, much latitude during minicamp this past weekend. "He came to me a couple of times, shouting at me," Avery reported.

Asked his early impressions of Avery, Holt said tersely, "Right now, I don't have any impressions of Donnie Avery. ... Hopefully, during training camp he'll show me something."

It's not that Holt is unhappy with Avery; he just wants to let him know that he has to prove himself before he can run with the big dogs. Which is fine with Avery. "I like that," he said. "When other people are strict on me, it brings the best out of me."

After spending the 33rd overall selection on Avery, the Rams are counting on getting his best. That starts with his running ability: He can zip 40 yards in 4.29 seconds, giving the Rams a much-needed downfield threat.
