Adoree’ Jackson is scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Rams this week along with the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans.
It’s hard to believe the 2017 NFL Draft is almost here, and for the Los Angeles Rams, it will be interesting to see what approach they take without a first-round pick. Thanks to last year’s deal with the Tennessee Titans to move up and select Jared Goff, the Rams won’t actually make their first selection until the second round at No. 37, assuming they don’t pull off a trade on the first night.
Depending on which players are still available to choose from, Los Angeles is expected to focus on wide receiver or offensive line early on, despite the signings of Andrew Whitworth and Robert Woods in free agency. But with all of the uncertainty surrounding Trumaine Johnson‘s future with the team, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Rams add another cornerback at some point, such as Adoree’ Jackson out of USC.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported over the weekend how Jackson will be visiting with the Rams this week along with the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans. While it’s debatable as to whether the USC cornerback would be worth taking in the second round, Jackson could certainly provide Los Angeles with some value later on in the draft if he’s still available in the mid rounds.

Expectations are high for the Rams heading into 2017 during their first season with Sean McVay as head coach, and after being one of the winners from free agency, the pressure is on to carry that success over into the draft. Not having a pick in the first round may seem like a tough challenge, but Los Angeles should be just fine in the long run when considering all of the talent like Jackson that should still be available later on.
