Rams "Top 30" Visits Underway: ESPN NFL Nation

Each team is allowed to bring up to 30 prospects to its facility for a pre-draft meet and greet. Those players are not allowed to work out at the team facility, and if the team wants to work that player out, they must venture to the player's college campus or home base. ESPN's Field Yates offered some excellent insight into what teams are hoping to accomplish with each visit.

Is Sam Bradford a Legitimate Franchise QB?:  Sports Glory

The St. Louis Rams drafted quarterback Sam Bradford with the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and quite frankly he hasn’t lived up to the expectations. Through his first four seasons in the league, he hasn’t had one breakthrough year that he has been able to push aside all of his doubters. There have been some points throughout the past four years that have shown bright spots to his game, but the consistency aspect hasn’t been there.

Five Biggest Draft Blunders in Rams’ History:  Sports Rants

Signing Britt Means No "Wasting" Early Draft Picks on a WR:  Rant Sports

Best/Worst Case Scenarios for Rams’ Free Agents Signings:  Ramblin’ Fan

The Rams capped off a modest free agency period with the signing of former Tennessee Titan wide receiver Kenny Britt, as first reported by NFL Media insider Ian Rapoport.
