Teams can pretty much only meet with prospects in a virtual capacity this year and there aren’t the combine and pro day visits like we’d normally have. To be able to glean much from pre-draft visits is difficult every year but it seems especially tough in 2021. However, the following list of nine (so far) prospects that the LA Rams have met with could at least suggest that the team will be looking at receivers and cornerbacks in the draft this year.
Or at least they’re making it look that way.
Compiled at WalterFootball (but potentially not comprehensive, so if you have any additions to make please comment below), these are nine prospects who the Rams have met with in the pre-draft process thus far:
- Demetric Felton, Wide Receiver, UCLA (VIR)
- Chauncey Golston, Defensive End, Iowa (VIR)
- Thomas Graham Jr., Cornerback, Oregon (VIR)
- Darren Hall, Safety, San Diego State (VIR)
- Quinn Meinerz, Offensive Guard, Wisconsin-Whitewater (VIR)
- Asante Samuel Jr., Cornerback, Florida State (VIR)
- Anthony Schwartz, Wide Receiver, Auburn (VIR)
- Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Wide Receiver, Iowa (VIR)
- Darius Stills, Defensive Tackle, West Virginia (VIR)
- Javian Hawkins, Running Back, Louisville
- Amen Ogbongbemiga, Linebacker, Oklahoma State
- Eli Stove, Wide Receiver, Auburn
- Jacob Harris, Tight End, UCF
- Grant Stuard, Linebacker, Houston
- Isaiah McDuffie, Linebacker, Boston College
- The Rams did sign DeSean Jackson and they have Van Jefferson, Trishton Jackson around to develop further. Does that mean that they won’t pick another receiving project? All three of these players are presumed to be available on day two or day three.
- Meinerz is tough to project and he could go anywhere from the late first round to the third round, depending on the report you read.
- Asante Samuel is another one who has been all over the board, anywhere from the first round to the third.
Which of these players interests you the most or the least?
