As we continue to inch closer to the draft, the Los Angeles Rams continue to bring in prospects for visits:

The Rams traded former captain and long-time starter at ILB in Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants earlier this offseason, opening a hole at the ILB position.

Currently the penciled-in starters are Mark Barron and Cory Littleton. Barron can be considered a safe starter at this point as the Rams had a chance to shed his salary in the offseason and chose to have him return instead.

Littleton is a more interesting case as he was a special teams demon who is now getting his shot to start.

Kiser was a four-year player with the Virginia Cavaliers, piling up over 300 career tackles as well as 22 sacks as noted earlier. Kiser profiles as more of an “old school” linebacker, as he belongs in the box banging with offensive lineman as opposed to being in space and using his speed like most LB’s today.

Kiser is projected as an early day three pick.
