The LA Rams staff who did not attend combine events in Indianapolis, Indiana certainly have plenty to ingest and assess right now. The activities are at their peak right now, meaning medical data, interview information, and athletic achievements on prescribed events are all coming online. Now is the time for final flourishes to the team's draft board to take place.

The 2024 NFL Scouting Combine continues to press on, and the athletic events must now pivot from Group I toward Group II.

So let's give you what you want. Here are some key quotes from players who may be of interest to Rams fans, and then we can break top athletic performers:
