NFL Draft rumors: Rams meeting with Sammy Watkins today for private workout


The St. Louis Rams hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, and they have a number of options that could impact how the remainder of the first round plays out. One of the most likely selections for the Rams if they decide to stay put is Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson, but there is also another talented player who could be on their radar.

On Friday, the Rams are sending their contingent out to Clemson for a private workout with Sammy Watkins, the clear-cut top wide receiver in the draft.

It is possible that the Rams are using their interest in Watkins as a smokescreen in order to drum up some interest from possible trade candidates, but they could also be willing to select Watkins and pair him with Tavon Austin, who they traded up to draft in 2013.

The direction the Rams choose to go has yet to be seen, but we will have an answer in just under three weeks.
