More and more prospects are getting their dates set for a private visit with the St. Louis Rams with the 2013 NFL Draft just three weeks away. We looked at the initial round of prospect visits earlier this week, but we need to update that list with some very intriguing names.
This was the list of names we had on Monday:
David Bass - DL - Missouri Western
Brandon Williams - DL - Missouri Southern
Marcus Lattimore - RB - South Carolina
Alec Ogletree - LB - Georgia
D.J. Fluker - OT - Alabama
Mike Gillislee - RB - Florida
Terron Armstead - OT - Arkansas-Pine Bluff
Three more names to add to that list:
Keenan Allen - WR - Cal: He's solid receiver prospect that nobody can get excited about. Allen possesses reliable hands, a good grasp of the route tree and a long stride that makes up for his lack of pure straight line speed. Injuries are a concern, specifically a knee injury that kept him off the field for his pro day last month. He has a personal pro day set for April 9. His game reminds me a little of Danario Alexander's but with fewer knee surgeries and more consistency in catching the ball.
Eddie Lacy - RB - Alabama: Ok, we've talked about this potential pick more than enough. Some people hate the idea of using a first-round pick on Lacy. I understand. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rams grab him in the first round either. He has to check out medically.
T.J. Moe - WR - Missouri: One of the local prospect visits teams are granted outside of the usual 30 visits. At Mizzou's pro day, Moe erased some of the damage from his 40 time at the Combine, which was the slowest of any receiver. He also reminded the press that Danny Amendola didn't post a very good 40 time either. Like Amendola, Moe could end up joining a team as an undrafted free agent. He's a quick slot guy too.
