The Los Angeles Rams continue to host draft hopefuls with Ohio St. WR Michael Thomas the latest prospect to hit Rams HQ:

With plenty of visits already reported. the Rams have recently met with fellow Buckeye safety Vonn Bell (story here) and Middle Tennessee St. safety Kevin Byard (story here).

Thomas, though, eclipses the current draft stock of either safety prospect. Thomas was taken with the first pick of the second round in the 2016 SB Nation NFL Bloggers Mock, so he could well find himself in the mix between the Rams picks at #15 overall in the first round and in the middle of the second round with their two picks at #s 43 and 45.

The questions then are evident.

Would Thomas be an appropriate selection for the Rams at 15? If not, would he make more sense as a candidate for the Rams to trade down from 15 for or to trade up from one of those second round picks to select? Would the latter of the two options be incumbent on a specific prospect at 15?
