Abram will take a pre-draft visit to L.A. Could he be an option for the Rams with Eric Weddle’s advanced age?

As the pre-draft circuit and countdown to the 2019 NFL Draft continues, more and more prospects are set to visit NFL teams. This time, Mississippi State Bulldogs’ Johnathan Abram is set to have a pre-draft visit with the Los Angeles Rams, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero:

Abram is a big and physical safety prospect with tons of juice, explosion, and physicality between the white lines. Most big media draft personalities seem to have Abram pegged as a box-safety, so the fit may not make a ton of sense with the Rams. Regardless, Abram is a highly mature prospect with a lot of production and was a senior in 2018, automatically qualifying him as a prime suspect for the Rams (General Manager Les Snead loves drafting seniors).

Just the other day, Maryland Terrapins safety Darnell Savage Jr was set to visit the Rams, so it’s clear they view safety as a need. It might not necessarily be a current need as they do have an excellent pairing in John Johnson III and Eric Weddle, though Weddle is a short-term stop-gap player as he enters 2019 at 34-years old.

The countdown towards the draft continues.
