Rams’ coaches will evaluate 32 rookies as camp begins

Rams rookies reported Sunday and take the field this afternoon for the first of two rookies-only practices. The rookies will work from 3:45 to approximately 5:30 p.m. today and Tuesday at Rams Park.
Those sessions are closed to the public. The first open practice for the public is a full-squad session at 3:30 p.m. Thursday.
Unlike past seasons, there is no uncertainty about getting all of the team’s draft picks signed and under contract. The new collective bargaining agreement has taken almost all of the drama out of getting draft picks signed.
First-rounders Tavon Austin and Alec Olgetree, along with the five other members of the Rams’ 2013 draft class, were signed June 14, the last day of the spring practice period. All told, 32 rookies are expected to be on hand the seven draft picks, plus 25 undrafted rookies hoping to impress the coaching staff and earn a spot on the 53-man roster at the end of the preseason.
One of those undrafted rookies, running back Benny Cunningham, has been cleared to practice and will be full-go this afternoon. Cunningham played only half of the 2012 season at Middle Tennessee State before suffering a season-ending knee injury. He had 217 yards and five touchdowns against Georgia Tech and 230 yards rushing against Florida International before the injury.

You aren't going to get an all-world offensive line at MTS... I'd be interested to see just how he got those yards against Georgia Tech. Diamond in the rough at RB? It's certainly happened before...I believe!
