According to this morning’s episode of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network, the Tennessee State University wide receiver Chris Rowland made an appearance and mentioned the Los Angeles Rams as one of the few teams that he’s had the chance to speak with up to this point. Rowland, along with dozens of other prospects from HBCU schools, lost the chance to perform in front of NFL personnel when the coronavirus pandemic forced the NFL to cancel the HBCU Combine in early March.

As a senior in 2019, Rowland was one of the most prolific wideouts in the country. This past season, he finished with 104 catches for 1,437 yards and eight touchdowns. He also did a little damage on the ground by taking 19 carries for 132 yards and one score.

As a junior, Rowland corralled 57 passes for 727 yards and five touchdowns.

Rowland also offers return value on special teams. In 2019, he took 14 returns for 166 yards and brought one back for a touchdown. On kickoffs, he took 15 kicks back for 355 yards and another score.
