    Tracking the Rams' Draft Visits

    I thought it might be helpful to start one topic to centralize news about which draft prospects are coming in and visiting the Rams. So far I have...

    Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert (source)
    Notre Dame DL Stephon Tuitt (source)
    Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier (source)

    Re: Tracking the Rams' Draft Visits

    We'd really consider an OLB in the first two rounds? I'd be very unhappy about that.

    Re: Prospects visiting Rams Park

    Jim Thomas ‏@jthom1 33s
    Rams defensive line coach Mike Waufle running drills w/Jadeveon Clowney at South Carolina pro day. GM Les Snead also among Rams contingent.
    I caught some of his pro day and Waufle was very involved. Talking to Clowney after every drill and was visibly animated watching him perform too (he was jumping up and down and clapping his hands at times). Similar to Boudreau at Matthews and Robinson's pro day, basically.

    Position battles aren't only for the field...looks like Waufle and Boudreau are going to go toe-to-toe for the right to coach their guy!

    Re: Tracking the Rams' Draft Visits

    Has anyone ever tracked these visits/pro day attendance/private workouts to see how they correspond with the players actually drafted by the Snisher regime ?
    I doubt they'd reveal too much; too much disinformation going on & obviously who is available to get picked isn't entirely in the picking team's control. Still, it might be interesting.

    Re: Tracking the Rams' Draft Visits

    Wel considering they get 30 players to visit it would be hard pressed to find a correlation considering the big pool to choose from at least in the 1st round. Rounds three and later might show more of a match. The investment made in the first couple rounds though makes it seem that is where teams will focus on to see who is a good fit.

    Then again its a chess play so might be a simple ploy to have other teams noticed you brought in a high value player and might choose him. Funny I am (in the minority I'm sure) not a fan of poker, but this stuff...ah! So much fun :-)

    One noteworthy omission so far is Hasean Clinton-Dix. Got quite a ways to go yet, but I would've thought he'd be in the first wave.
