Potential Late Round Finds And UDFA's: Depth Buillding For The Rams


Draft season is in full bloom. Trades, surprising free agent moves, and speculation have made this offseason very interesting to say the least. The Rams have done well in free agency thus far by adding a center, corner back, and defensive tackle. It is a solid beginning. Another important aspect in the improvement of the team, will come as a result of identifying talent in the later rounds and through UDFA's.

This has to be one of the most difficult task in professional football. Talented players do not just come from the well known programs like: USC, LSU, or Alabama. Sometimes they come from places like Savannah St with the likes of Shannon Sharpe. Northern Iowa who produced Kurt Warner. Florida A&M; the home of legendary wide receiver and track star "Bullet" Bob Hayes.

A tremendous amount of talent can be found in these smaller schools. Hopefully that talent will be brought forth and groomed for an NFL opportunity. After the jump, I will list the names and positions of players that may be drafted late or go undrafted. The Rams may discover a few gems among them.

1. WR Derek Carrier, Beloit 6'3 240.

Carrier was a three star athlete in college who also ran track and played basketball. The Div III wide receiver had a productive 2011 season: 75 rec's, 1,100 yards, 12 TD's. He displays surprising athleticism for his size:

4.49 forty, 40" vertical, 10' 2" broad jump.

2. WR/KR Cody Pearcy, Huntingdon College (Alabama) 5'11 175. This dual threat Div III All-American had a decent 2011: 44 rec's, 766 yards, 8 TD's. Pearcy displays tremendous speed and power for a small receiver:

4.31 forty; 44" vertical.

3. DT Damon Harrison, William Penn 6'3 340. The NAIA All-American displayed power and athleticism. Harrison is a powerful run stuffer who can occupy multiple blockers.
