Last year the St. Louis Rams, in NFL Mock Draft talk, were connected with DT Corey Liuget until the last days leading up to the draft, and in the year since their defensive line has only gotten more questionable. So it makes a lot of sense that they brought Dontari Poe in for a visit Friday, as reported by Jim Thomas:
Rams Friday draft visits include Memphis DT Dontari Poe and Wake Forest WR Chris Givens. Also, Appalachian State WR Brian Quick was in Thurs— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) April 14, 2012
Poe's run up draft boards began with an outstanding performance at the NFL Combine and hasn't really let up since; he's a constant in the middle of the first round right now, and he could move up even further with two weeks to go until draft day. He'd need to keep moving to become a Ram, unless they follow through on the rumors they'll trade down one more time.
