Who are these players, and when are they projected to come off the board?

If you are seeking clues as to the LA Rams draft strategy, keep in mind that meetings do not take place for teams to tell prospects 'We are absolutely selecting you,' in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. Oftentimes, the meeting takes place due to some interest, but it gives scouts an opportunity to make that prospects draft profile more three-dimensional.

It also affords an opportunity to clarify some less obvious matters, or pose questions to the player raised by personnel executives or coaches prior to the meeting taking place.

To give you a feel of when these players are likely to hear their names called out, we have turned to the experts at NFL Draft Buzz and their projections for 2024 on their big board. Keep in mind that updating hundreds of player profiles manually is very time-consuming, so projections should be viewed with some degree of skepticism.

Who have the Rams met with so far?

  • RB Audric Estime - Notre Dame: Projected Round 4
  • CB Ennis Rakestraw - Missouri: Projected Round 2
  • EDGE Bralen Trice - Washington: Projected Round 2
  • LB Jaylan Ford - Texas: Projection Round 7
  • WR Rome Odunze - Washington: Projected Round 1
  • OT Taliese Fuaga - Oregon State: Projected Round 1
  • QB Bo Nix - Oregon: Projected Round 1
  • OT Karsen Barnhart - Michigan: Projected Priority FA signing after draft
  • WR Ricky Pearsall - Florida: Projected Round 2
  • DE/Edge Brennan Jackson - Washington State: Projected Round 5
  • Kicker Will Reichard - Alabama: Projected Priority FA signing after draft
  • WR Roman Wilson - Michigan: Projected Round 2
  • Edge Jaylen Harrell - Michigan: Projected Round 7
  • CB Mike Sanristil - Michigan: Projected Round 3
  • OT Troy Fautanu - Washington: Projected Round 1
  • DL Savion Jackson - NC State: Projected Priority FA signing after the draft

So what does that tell us? The Rams frequency of meeting with prospects from common position groups highlights the fact that the team will likely select at least one player from that positional group in the upcoming draft. The Rams met with Iowa State DE/Edge Will McDonald prior to the 2023 NFL Draft. McDonald was selected in Round 1 with the 15th overall pick by the New York Jets.

The Rams eventually selected Tennessee OLB Byron Young with the 77th overall pick.

The Rams are meeting with a variety of players, and as vigilant as we try to be, even we cannot capture every meeting that the team has with prospects before the draft.
