We are just days away from the annual NFL Scouting Combine, and it's certainly an exciting time of year for draft nerds everywhere.
Not only does the combine showcase the top collegiate talent from across the country, but it also allows the media, scouts, agents and front-office personnel to network and share information—information that is eventually relayed to the fans.
Every mock draft on the web is pure speculation at this point, but after the media spends a week mingling with scouts and general managers, we'll get a better feel on where certain prospects stand. Mock drafts will be shuffled beyond recognition following the event.
For the St. Louis Rams, a team with two picks in the top 15 (No. 2, No. 13), the combine will help paint a picture of how those early picks will unfold.
If you are a Rams fan and happen to catch a portion of the combine—taking place February 22 through February 25 on the NFL Network—here are several prospects to keep an eye on.
These players either fit a need on St. Louis' roster, present good value or offer potential as a "sleeper pick."
