Watkins Would be Good for Bradford: ESPN NFL Nation
Schefter reported Wednesday morning that Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins will visit the Rams on Monday and then St. Louis will hold a private workout with him on April 18.

Ranking the NFL’s No. 3 Wide Receivers: Yahoo! Sports
16. Chris Givens – Rams
Givens is currently penciled in as the Ram’s No. 3 wideout behind Tavon Austin and Kenny Britt, but he’ll need to hold off sophomore Stedman Bailey and any rookies the team adds this May.

There’s really nothing to see here...unless you’ve never seen a Rams’ mock draft. This might as well have been posted in January... regardless, the picks are still of the utmost quality.
