The Los Angeles Rams recently met with three defensive backs ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft.

USC Trojans SS Leon McQuay

McQuay projects as a Day 3 pick or UDFA as a strong safety who played some nickel corner in his freshman year. He lacks some physicality, but has plus ball skills for his size (6’1”, 197 lbs.).

San Diego State Aztecs CB Damontae Kazee

Kazee’s a plus athlete who comes in a bit smaller at 5’10”, though he has positive, aggressive ball skills with 15 interceptions in the last two seasons.

Fresno State Bulldogs CB Tyquwan Glass

Glass is a near-certain UDFA. He has a similar build to Kazee without the pedigree. He does have plus raw speed having taken on kick and punt return duties since being named a starting cornerback in 2015.

Clearly the Rams are doing some work to prep for some secondary additions. They’ve made moves in free agency to sign CB Kayvon Webster and then add CB Nickell Robey-Coleman last week. Of course CB Trumaine Johnson is on a second successive franchise tag with trade rumors having swirled coming out of the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine. Behind the corners, S T.J. McDonald signed with the Miami Dolphins last month.

Suffice to say, the secondary going into OTAs will look very different than it does today. These three recent visits only add evidence to confirm as much.
