The St. Louis Rams have their eye on an offensive lineman out of California, Mitchell Schwartz, according to Scout.com. Naturally, St. Louis is not the only team interested in the 6'5" 318 lbs lineman, more than half a dozen teams are interested. Several of those teams have private workouts scheduled, but not the Rams, not yet anyway.

So who is Schwartz?

Schwartz is an offensive tackle that many experts have pegged as a right tackle. However, at the Senior Bowl, he made a name for himself by taking on the draft's top pass rushers and handling them well. Big and long - his arms measured 33 1/2" - he looks like the prototypical NFL tackle.

Speed rushers at the NFL level may pose a problem until he works out issues with his balance and irons out a tendency to get up high in his stance. The guys over NEPatriotsDraft.com wonder if Schwartz might be best moved inside to guard, once he beefs up his strength. Here's his scouting report from CBS Sports.

Most have Schwartz as a second- or third-round pick, right on the borderline. The Rams have the second pick in the third round of the draft.
