2013 NFL Draft: Prospect visits continue

Stephen Dunn

The Rams are really doing their homework on the receivers and running backs in this year's draft.

Young people just keep on rolling into Rams Park as the St. Louis Rams continue to line up visits with players available in the 2013 NFL Draft. The latest group of names includes even more wide receivers and running backs, which could be a fairly strong signal about what kinds of players GM Les Snead is looking for.

The latest names on the list:

Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech: We've mentioned Patton before. Last month, the Rams took the entire "brain trust" to watch him workout. Now he gets a private visit. Patton runs nice routes and possesses good hands. He lacks a little in the straight speed department, but his skill set looks a lot like a very good outside possession type guy, a reliable target for a quarterback.

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee: I won't rehash the scouting report on Patterson; you've heard it by now. NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock has Patterson at the top of his WR board, just above Tavon Austin who also visited the Rams. He's raw, but has lots of talent, especially with the ball in his hands.

Jonathan Franklin, RB, UCLA: The Bruin runner blew up his pro day this spring, pushing him up draft boards. CBS' Rob Rang and Dan Brugler have him as their third ranked running back. He is not the "big back" Jeff Fisher has talked about, at 5'10 205 pounds. Franklin has the kind of athleticism and big play ability so popular in the NFL these days among complementary backs. He could be an insurance plan for a disappointing Isaiah Pead. Experts have him pegged as a borderline second- or third-round pick.
