NFL Draft 2012: Rams Set To Host Rueben Randle Next Week

One of the primary focuses for the St. Louis Rams this offseason has been to improve the talent around Sam Bradford. While the Rams have done some solid work on the offensive line, continuing to improve the depth at the wide receiver position could prove to be a priority in the 2012 NFL Draft.

While the Rams may look at wide receiver with the No. 6 pick, there are certainly some options early in the second round as well. According to Jim Thomas at the St. Louis Post Dispatch, one player they have their eyes on is former LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle, who will visit Rams Park before the draft.

The Rams continue to line up draft visits. Two prospects from Louisiana State, defensive tackle Michael Brockers and wide receiver Rueben Randle, are scheduled to visit next week. Brockers could go somewhere in the top half of the first round — and could be an option if the Rams trade down from the No. 6 overall pick.

Even though LSU lacked great quarterback play, Randle still managed 53 catches for 917 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He's projected as a late first, early second-round pick, and could be an option for the Rams at either No. 33 overall or No. 39 overall.


Randle was one of the top offensive options for an LSU team that went undefeated in the regular-season. He has the speed to stretch the defense and could give the Rams a true deep threat.
