Call them role players... gimmicks... gadgets... situational...

Specialists can make a difference.

Three types of players the Rams don't currently have, but could likely add on Day 3 of the draft, are the following:

Punt Return Specialist
I don't think that Jo Jo Natson has given us much in this spot, and I think it would be worth a late draft pick to acquire a true specialist who could give us a few big plays. Remember the impact that Pharoh Cooper provided a couple of years ago? I'd like to have that advantage again. Candidate: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU

QB/Athlete
In this copycat league, teams will be looking for the "next Taysom Hill." I think Sean McVay could find a use for this type of player. Such a player could also be a developmental prospect who would initially be a 3rd QB, and ultimately take on the back-up role. Candidate: Khalil Tate, Arizona

Fullback
The position was almost dead, but seems to be coming back into vogue with guys like Kyle Juszczyk (49ers) and Patrick Ricard (Ravens) contributing to successful offenses. I don't think Todd Gurley would mind having a big lead blocker from time to time. Candidate: Jay Jay Wilson, Auburn

I liked Wolford in the preseason. The dude looked like a gamer to me. If McVay wanted a Taysom Hill style player, he should suit up Wolford. However, I have a feeling McVay isn't down with such shenanigans. He rather draw up crazy jet sweeps and roll outs.

I still think we should try to grab Rodrigo Blankenship, Kicker, (UGA Bulldogs). That kids proven to be pretty clutch. He's pretty much gold under 50 yards. I really like GZ but I'm just not really sure how many days he's got left, this season raised a lot of questions for me. GZ and Gurley, how hurt are they? Will they ever be the same? (those are rhetorical)

I just looked up a video on him. I'd love to have him on the team. Has great vision and quick change of direction. As a WR he runs great routes and has excellent speed (it is said that he ran a 4.29 fourty, that is elite speed) But the Rams have too much WR talent as it is, the higher picks will have to be used elsewhere. If he falls way below his talent, then I'd say YES pick him up.

The Rams QB system is built around throwing the ball. For him to succeed, he would need an entirely different set of plays. Hard enough to expect the entire offense to learn one playbook. He will prolly be drafted before Rams have a chance to call him on the phone as a UDFA.

Fullback Todd Gurley would mind having a big lead blocker from time to time. Candidate: Jay Jay Wilson, Auburn
Excuse my sarcasm, but will he even get an invite to the combine?

Have any video of him blocking anyone?

He is a failed TE at Arizona State they gave him a shot at LB he failed at that position too. He transferred to Auburn for his St. Year and had no carries whatsoever.

Its a really deep WR class, so a guy like Reagor could slip into the 3rd round. I probably wouldn't take him earlier than that. Planning for the future at the position might not be a bad idea, though, with Cooks' contract/concussion issues.

Wilson is ranked among the top FB prospects on several draft sites. He strikes me as a guy who will understand that his role is primarily as a blocker. Other FB types (i.e. A.J. Dillon of Boston College) may see themselves more as big tailbacks.

A couple of good things stick out. 1: He's not a quitter. 2: He must be a great athlete for being given many chances at different positions. LB, TE, even WR. I'm sure all of the the scouts have film of him in pass protection and lead blocking. such videos are not sexy so we don't get to see video of the primary reals of a FB.
