A few more WR speedsters


The draft is getting closer, and I'm eager to see what the Rams end up doing. I've said all along that LB (either edge or interior), offensive line, and speedy WR are the Rams' top 3 needs. The draft is full of all those positions and I've tried to profile who I think would be good choices. My personal favorites will always be taller rather than shorter, and while D'Wayne Eskridge and his 4.35 speed is exciting, I'd rather see Ihmir Smith-Marsette and his 4.43 speed instead, simply because at almost 6'2", he's going to win a lot more jump balls.
That being said, here are 3 more burners, all who ran a 4.38 at some point in the last month. There isn't a load of film on these guys, but from what I've seen they all have good hands and have run jet sweeps and deep outs in college. Sometimes when a guy DOESN'T go deep, it's because the game plan doesn't throw deep, which is usually because of the QB.

Shi Smith 5'11" 190 South Carolina the shortest of these 3 . Always was a big play waiting to happen for the Gamecocks. Good route runner and TD threat every time he has the ball.

Tre Nixon 6'2" 185 UCF Very little tape, but you gotta like a guy who is 6'2" and runs that fast. Highly recruited out of high school.

Demetris Robertson 6'0" 190 Georgia His QB didn't seem to have much of an arm, but again, I'll take a 6 footer who can run.
