The Rams had an awfully busy draft weekend, and they continued their aggressive approach in the world of undrafted free agents. The team has signed a large group of college rookies, and there are some names on the list that are at least a little exciting. Here are most of the guts that have signed, and expect more when they are confirmed:
LSU TE DeAngelo Peterson, Syracuse OT Michael Hay, Oregon State P John Hekker, Duke S Matt Daniels, UCLA TE Cory Harkey, Southern Mississippi QB Austin Davis, Wayne State OT Joe Long, Houston LB Sammy Brown, Ohio LB Noah Keller, Washington State LB Alex Hoffman-Ellis, Eastern Kentucky CB Jeremy Caldwell, LSU OL Bob Hebert, Virginia S Rodney McLeod, Virginia DL Matt Conrath, Massachusetts LS Travis Tripucka, Michigan State FB Todd Anderson, Stephen F. Austin LB Derrick Choice and Jacksonville State RB Calvin Middleton.
Hekker looks likes he’s going to be our punter this season, so there’s one starter right there. Peterson looks like a very nice addition, and I’m actually surprised he didn’t get drafted. Daniels is a guy the Rams really liked heading into the draft, so they have to be happy to get him afterwards. Brown is a guy I have heard good things about already, and considering our lack of depth at LB, that’s very good news.
Overall, you have to like this group. I wouldn’t be shocked if several of these guys make the team, and that’s really all you can ask.
