Forrest has some athleticism according to his NFL.com draft profile. That suits Rams Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams just fine. But I get the feeling that Rams Special Teams Coordinator John Fassel will be working with Forrest more than Williams. That's not to say that he's not a good developmental prospect at ILB behind Alec Ogletree. But let's be real here... if he makes the 53-man roster, it will be as a special teams contributor.
This pick screams Daren Bates replacement to me. Someone who can provide depth in a pinch, but will be relied upon to become one of Jeff Fisher's coveted 'core' special teams players - hopefully sans the personal fouls.
