Jake Matthews will be getting a little face time with a familiar face during the Combine this week. The Texas A&M offensive tackle said Thursday that he's scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams during the week.
Teams are allowed 60 interviews of 15 minutes with prospects at the Combine, sort of a scouting via speed dating thing, but one that does give them a feel for the player and his development both on and off the field. We'll learn more as the week goes on about the other 59 players the Rams are interviewing in Indianapolis.
