Rams at Missouri Pro Day today

Well, it's not the big time Mizzou Pro Day that will feature DE Aldon Smith and QB Blaine Gabbert, but this first MU Pro Day includes a couple of prospects to keep an eye on for the St. Louis Rams. And the Rams had scouts on hand to see the show. 

Most notable among them is Combine snubbed C Tim Barnes. At the NFLPA Game, formerly known as Texas vs. the Nation, Barnes stood out and earned praise from draftniks. Here's what Chad Reuter from NFLDraftScout.com said about Barnes in February:

The first-team All-Big 12 pick was excellent in pass protection despite playing with wide splits, and has the toughness in the run game to start as a rookie.

Barnes has a good lower body for moving defenders and holding the point of attack. 

Another player that might be of interest at Mizzou is OLB Andrew Gachkar, a first-team All-Big 12 player in 2010. He's probably a 7th round or undrafted guy at this point, but that could change. The Rams have a decided preference for late round linebackers. FS Jerrell Harrison is another below-the-radar, i.e. undrafted, guy that worked out today along with cornerbacks Carl Gettis and Kevin Rutland

Down in Waco, TX, as you might have expected Danny Watkins impressed again at his pro day. He opted to leave his Combine stats, but Gil Brandt reports that he looked good in position drills
