2013 NFL Draft: Rams interested in Arkansas RB Ronnie Wingo?

Ronald Martinez

The Rams like big backs, and it's just no lie.

Knile Davis gets most of the attention saved for a pair of Arkansas Razorback runners. However, Ronnie Wingo, Jr., the second part of the Hogs' duo, is name that St. Louis Rams fans should probably get to know ahead of this week's draft.

There's a reason you probably haven't heard much about Wingo. Last year at Arkansas, he dropped to third on the depth chart. He carried the ball just 12 times. The year before he had a bigger role with Davis injured. Wingo rushed for an average of 4.4 yards per carry on 104 rushing attempts, a respectable number in the SEC.

Wingo measures 6'2" 231 pounds, and most draft sites have him listed as a fullback. In truth, he's a bit more like an H-Back (which you can read all about in this exhaustive breakdown). At his pro day, he ran a 4.47 40-yard dash and hit 18 reps on the bench.

Wingo is from the St. Louis area, and was lured to Arky as a four-star recruit. The Rams visited with him as part their "local" prospect visit allotment.

Dan Kadar from Mocking the Draft, offered a little insight into Wingo's game:

And that's exactly why he's expected to be a sixth- or seventh-round pick, possibly even sliding into free agency.
