Maybe the draft’s most controversial prospect, USC CB Adoree’ Jackson is visiting the Los Angeles Rams this week according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network:

The Rams do have a need at the CB spot with a lot of guys shuffling around. Trumaine Johnson is only on a one-year deal per a second consecutive franchise tag as of now. The #2 CB spot is definitely undecided and will be up for grabs with Kayvon Webster or E.J. Gaines the most likely beneficiaries. Slot CB Lamarcus Joyner sounds to be moving to the FS spot opening another position. While that spot will likely be filled by Nickell Robey-Coleman, there remains a need at CB for the Rams who don’t have much insurance at the position.

Adoree’ Jackson is an interesting prospect in terms of his versatility. He’s known for his ability to make plays not only from the CB spot, but he is a very dangerous offensive weapon and is a terrific special teams return man. Jackson actually had 15 total touchdowns in his collegiate career.

Jackson is a 21-year old corner who has been slotted anywhere in the back end of the first round to the end of the second round. Teams will likely gush over his versatility as well as his natural athleticism. Jackson is thought of as a particularly raw CB prospect who has a lot of untapped potential.

A fun tidbit? Jackson is actually a Rams fan:
