kickoffcoverage:

Michael Sam finally gets picked by Rams in 7th round:
Michael Sam has been picked by the St. Louis Rams in the seventh round of the NFL draft, becoming the first openly gay player drafted by a pro football team.
Sam played at Missouri, and came out as gay in media interviews earlier this year. His team and coaches knew his secret and kept it for his final college season.
He went on to have the best year of his career: He was the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year.
The 6-foot-2, 255-pound Sam was considered a mid-to-late round pick, far from a sure thing to be drafted. He played defensive end in college, but he’s short for that position in the NFL and slower than most outside linebackers, the position he’ll need to transition to at the professional level.

kickoffcoverage:

Rams’ 4th-round pick worked as janitor at stadium:
The St. Louis Rams selected Utah State safety Maurice Alexander, who worked as a janitor cleaning up the Rams’ stadium on game days after getting kicked off his team for one season.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Alexander, from nearby Eureka, Missouri, was the Rams’ fourth-round pick. The team brought him in for a workout a few weeks ago, which coach Jeff Fisher on Saturday called “outstanding.”
Alexander was sentenced to a year in jail after punching a teammate, running back Joseph DiMartino, in the face after a party. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of aggravated assault resulting in body injury and all but 45 days of the sentence was suspended.
Alexander was reinstated by the school last year and started 13 games, finishing with 80 tackles, six pass breakups, an interception and 3 1-2 sacks. (Photo: Associated Press

kickoffcoverage:

With the 2ND PICK in the 2014 NFL draft, the ST. LOUIS RAMS select:GREG ROBINSON, OT School: Auburn | Conference: SECCollege Experience: Sophomore Height/Weight: 6-5 / 332 lbs.Has a remarkable combination of size, power and body control. Owns a prototypical frame for playing offensive line in the NFL, including broad shoulders, long arms, a relatively trim waist, thick bubble and tree trunks for legs. Is a developing pass blocker with all of the physical traits scouts look for in an NFL left tackle. Quick out of his stance, plays with good flexibility and has the long arms and strong hands to catch edge rushers and ride them out of the pocket. Where he needs to improve is in his consistency, as his lack of long-term experience as an offensive lineman will show up in key areas like footwork and hand use. If he can put it all together, Robinson has the physical gifts to be one of the best at the next level. He could have been a high first-round choice a year ago but elected to return to A&M for his senior campaign. Making the switch to left tackle in 2013 only made his stock go even higher.
