As we continue to inch closer to the 2018 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams continue to cycle through visits with pass rushers. This time it’s Kansas Jayhawks DE/OLB Dorance Armstrong Jr.

Armstrong played DE for the Jayhawks though he projects as a great fit at OLB for a 3-4 defense with his athleticism and lack of size (6’4” 246lbs).
Armstrong had a major dip in production from 2016 to 2017, where his sack total dropped from 10 to only two. Some of this can be attributed to his usage within the defense as his role changed.
Armstrong had a strong combine performance where he had some of the top scores in the 3-cone, 20-yard shuttle, and 60-yard shuttles. Generally those agility drills are very important and translate for pass rushers.
The Rams obviously lack any early draft picks, so there’s potential that Armstrong might not even drop far enough for the Rams to consider him.
Only a few more days, folks.
