2016 NFL Draft: Los Angeles Rams Meet With Four More Prospects At East-West Shrine Game

New, comments

The Rams have now been linked to seven players at this week's Shrine Game practices.

On Monday, the Los Angeles Rams met with three defenders at the 2016 East-West Shrine Game opening practice session: Miami S Deon Bush, Illinois CB V'Angelo Bentley and UCLA LB Aaron Wallace.

Since then, they've met with another four according to the Day 2 and Day 3 practice reports at NFL.com:

Navy Midshipmen QB/ATH Keenan Reynolds

Reynolds had a really fun final season in Annapolis in a crazy run-first, -second and -third offense for Head Coach Ken Niumatalolo. Going 11-2, hitting career highs in passing and rushing yards, downing Pitt in the Military Bowl and (most importantly) adding to what is now a 14-game winning streak over Army? Yeah, that's a good season.

As an NFL prospect though, without any offense anywhere near as wonky as Navy's, he's too limited as a passer to function as a QB in the NFL. He's got value as a pure athlete though who could transition to RB, WR or a Tavon Austin-esque hybrid role.

Purdue CB Anthony Brown

I only saw two Purdue games this season, so I'm not going to suggest I know a ton about Brown from tape. Plus, one of those two games was Purdue's 55-45 win over Nebraska in which Brown had three interceptions...perhaps not the most representative game of his career...He's certainly athletic though. I'm interested to see how he holds up in practice this week and on Saturday during the game.

Colorado CB Ken Crawley

Speaking of football programs I should really watch less of...Colorado! Crawley's a bit of a stronger CB prospect than Brown from what I saw, though less athletic overall.

Memphis OL Taylor Fallin

Now here's someone I saw a lot of this season. Fallin has been the starting left tackle the last three years, blocking for QB Paxton Lynch in the last two, and did a fine job of it over the course of the season. He's not a premier tackle prospect, but I could see him off the board as high as the fifth round, maybe even the fourth if the next few months break his way.

The East-West Shrine Game takes place Saturday, January 23 at 4pm. Rams fans can catch the game on the NFL Network.
