The NFL Draft is only weeks away and it looks like the Rams are making their final evaluations on players with the recent reports of their upcoming visits.
The Rams are sitting with the number ten pick, but has shown interest in the two top quarterbacks. Will the Rams trade up for one of the top quarterbacks if they fall? Probably not, but the Rams could trade up if one of these two fall out of the top five, or they are just evaluating the quarterbacks for down the road.

The Rams are also doing their due dilegence on another quarterback, Baylors Bryce Petty. Petty played in a spread system and even head coach Jeff Fisher has mentioned in the past that Petty might need to sit a year, which he would since the Rams currently have Nick Foles on a one year deal.
In addition. Baylor QB Bruce Petty has said he is visiting Rams Park.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) April 11, 2015
If you can play quarterback then the Rams could be interested in you, Garrett Grayson, Brett Hundley, and Sean Mannion, were interesting players during the college football season. However, if it comes down to it, all three of these players, even Petty, are most likely to be career backups with upside. But, who knows you could hit lighting in the bottle, look at Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick, solid mid-round quarterbacks.

It is not a surprise to see a receiver on the list, Parker is often listed as the third best in the class, but just like Kevin White and Amari Cooper, people think he will be a great receiver in the NFL. Parker is more of a possession receiver that can make splash plays, but hey the Rams need as many playmakers as they can get.

La'el Collins is said to be the best tackle prospect in the draft and since the Rams need an offensive tackle, Collins has been a consistent pick. He is kind of like the Rams current offensive tackle Greg Robinson - he is an okay pass blocker but shines as a run blocker. Would the Rams have two average pass blockers protecting Nick Foles? Probably not, but we will see.
LSU OL La'el Collins just said on ESPN Radio with @MelKiperESPN he feels good about his visits with the Giants, #STLRams and Vikings.— Nate Latsch (@NateLatsch) April 11, 20
