Per Justin Melo of The Draft Wire, the Rams have recently held a meeting over FaceTime with former Louisiana offensive linemen Robert Hunt. The Rams were joined by a litany of other teams, including intra-division rivals Arizona and Seattle.

Hunt did not participate in any of the combine drills while in Indianapolis but his size and stature still did quite a lot of the talking. At 6’5 and 325 pounds, Hunt is one of the most intriguing prospects from a size/athleticism standpoint.

After redshirting in 2015, Hunt made 13 starts a left guard his first season on the field. In 2017, he made 11 starts total, nine at left guard and two at left tackle.

As a junior, Hunt started all 14 games at right tackle en route to being named a Second-Team All-Sun Belt selection. This past season, he started the first seven games before missing the second half of the season with an injury. Even after the missed time, Hunt was still named to the First-Team All-Sun Belt team.

The Ragin’ Cajuns’ ground game finished third in the nation in average yards per rush at 6.28. They also finished fourth in rushing touchdowns (42), rush yards per game (257.4), and sacks allowed per game (1.07).

Hunt was also invited to the 2020 Senior Bowl but did not participate due to the inkjury he sustained during the season.
