The Rams may lose a cornerback or two in this year’s free agency period so it’s no surprise that they’re doing their due diligence on the position in this year’s draft class.
According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Rams recently met with Oregon cornerback Thomas Graham Jr., among other teams.
Graham, a native of Rancho Cucamonga, California, opted out of the 2020 college football season to prepare for this year’s draft. He did return to the gridiron to participate in the the 2021 Reese’s Senior Bowl to showcase his skills against the top senior talent in the country.

Graham had himself a nice week at the Senior Bowl where he met with every team in person, so his virtual schedule isn't as heavy (yet) as some of the other prospects.
In his final year with the Ducks, the 5’11, 195-pound Graham earned Honorable Mention All-Pac 12 honors after picking off two passes, breaking up 10 more, and recording five tackles-for-loss. He also snagged an interception in the Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. He ended his collegiate career with eight interceptions and 32 pass breakups in three seasons.
