St.Louis Conducts Private Workouts With Three Top WR Prospects

The Rams have wrapped up workouts with a couple possible draft picks for Thursday night – wide receivers Justin Blackmon (Oklahoma State), Michael Floyd (Notre Dame) and Kendall Wright (Baylor).

Private workouts of draft-eligible prospects may only occur on a player’s college campus, so a six-person contingent consisting, among others, of head coach Jeff Fisher, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, and general manager Les Snead traveled from site-to-site to put the players through the paces.

CEO Kevin Demoff joined the group for Blackmon’s workout in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

The 6-foot-1, 207-pound Blackmon caught 251 passes for 3,564 yards and 40 touchdowns during his 38-game at Oklahoma State and is projected to go in the Top 10 of this year’s draft. Floyd, who measured in at 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds at the Combine, finished his college career with 271 receptions for 3,686 yards and 37 touchdowns, including 100 receptions for 1,147 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2011 and is regarded as a Top 15 pick.

At 5-foot-10 and 196 pounds, Wright is valued for his route running and ability to get open, which allowed him to haul in 302 receptions for 4,004 yards and 30 touchdowns during his 50-game career. Wright is expected to hear his name called during the first round, possibly in the Top 15-20 picks.
