2014 Senior Bowl: Players to watch for the Rams potential draft picks

USA TODAY Sports

The Rams have a history with the Senior Bowl. Which players in Mobile this week will catch their eye? Which ones should catch their eye? Names to know and results from Monday's weigh-in.

At a hotel ballroom in Mobile, a place usually reserved for sales conventions and high school proms, a small brigade of college football players were marched one-by-one in front of a room full of a men in pleated khakis to have their weight taken, arms measured, and other parts calipered. It can only mean one thing: Senior Bowl.

Dan Kadar, the estimable editor at Mocking the Draft, is in Mobile this week to watch and report on the first big event of NFL Draft season. Here is his preview of the week. His thoughts on today's weigh-in are here, and the results are posted below.

There are a lot of recognizable names in Mobile, but remember, this is the SENIOR Bowl, and with a record number of underclassmen in the draft, some of the top prospects are not there. They'll get their day in the sun at the Combine and pro day events.

The Rams, like most teams, have a history of taking players they evaluate at the Senior Bowl. That was USC safety T.J. McDonald last year. The Senior Bowl played a big part in the Rams 2012 draft ... all three of their second-round picks -- Isaiah Pead, Brian Quick and Janoris Jenkins -- were there.

Who should you be watching this week in Mobile? Everyone, really. This is a week when guys push their stock into the first day of the draft, and it's also the chance to see some names to know for the last day of the draft.

A few guys I'm interested in:

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, Eastern Illinois - A local kid who had a big outing last weekend at the Shrine Game. He's looking more and more like one of the better picks among the so-called mid-round quarterbacks. Not a cannon arm, but I really like his quick release, quick thinking ability. He moves through his progressions fast, and given the constant flux of the Rams OL, a guy like that could quickly play himself into the mix.

Ja'Wuan James, OT, Tennessee - Tackle prospect, wonder why the Rams would be interested in one of those? Seriously though, watch any and all offensive linemen likely to be picked in rounds 2-7.

Deone Bucannon, S, Washington State - Rangy, hard-hitting safety who plays the ball well.

Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt - The Rams have quite the Vandy pipeline going, from Zac Stacy to almost sending Brian Schottenheimer there. Anyway, he's a big receiver who can win at the point of attack. With two games every year against Seattle's secondary, you can't have enough big physical receivers ... and I'm not so sure that the Rams have one at all right now.

Tajh Boyd, QB, Clemson - Another potential mid-round signal caller ... he's only 6'0, but he's big at 222 pounds. Really anxious to see what he can do.

Zack Martin, OT, Notre Dame - Martin might be a good replacement for Rodger Saffold. He plays tackle, but he might be a better fit on the inside. His arms came in a little short for a tackle.
