With free agency in full effect, the draft has been sort of tossed to the side at least for the time being. That is not the case however here at Ramblin’ Fan. Even though free agency will steal the show, college pro days are also being held.
It was reported that the Rams attended Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson’s pro day as well as offensive tackle Jake Matthews’, and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins’. To say the least, the Rams left impressed and each one.

Snead also saw quarterback Tajh Boyd work out and said they were impressive as the quarterback went 16 for 16 on underneath routes, which is where a lot of the Rams passes are targeted, and went 66 of 67 overall.
Rams offensive line coach Paul Boudreau also went to Robinson and Matthews’ pro days and were impressed by both of them. Boudreu was reportedly t0ugh on the prospects, asking them tough questions and went through workouts with both of them, but both players survived which would give reason that the Rams will be interested in both of these players come May.

While it was only Boudreau at Robinson’s Pro Day, Les Snead, along with Beadreau attended Matthews’ pro day. Here’s what Snead had to say via Pro Football Talk
“We’re all here today because of the way [Jake] played,” Rams General Manager Les Snead said, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But just in the workout today, you can tell that the guy probably was in the crib doing this stuff and did it at the dinner table, it comes so natural to him. He knows what to expect at the next level, because his dad’s played in it, coached in it, so he’ll be able to handle all the weather that comes with the high-pressure job on the offensive line.”
According to the report, Matthews also had a private meeting with the Rams.
These three players are just a few players that the Rams could take come May’s draft and it certainly looks like the Rams are showing interest, which one the Rams will take is still the big question.
