Each weekday, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here's a look at what's out there for Wednesday, February 27th about your Los Angeles Rams.
EDGE RUSHER OPTIONS
The Rams have a few positions on the defensive side of the ball that require some attention entering free agency, but NFL Nation reporter Lindsey Thiry believes obtaining an edge rusher to supplement the interior pass rush of defensive tackle Aaron Donald is of most importance.
The NFL Combine is underway in Indianapolis, and here's who Thiry says to keep an eye on as a potential candidate for the spot:
Florida outside linebacker Jachai Polite. The 6-foot-2, 260-pound Polite decided to forgo his senior season to make himself available for the draft. As a junior, Polite had 11 sacks and tied a school record with six forced fumbles.
Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson. Ferguson, 6-foot-5 and 259 pounds, will not participate in drills at the combine after the NFL discovered a simple battery conviction from his freshman yearthat turned up during a background check. However, it remains possible that Ferguson could meet with teams in Indianapolis. Ferguson tied for first in the FBS with 17.5 sacks his senior season and added two forced fumbles.
Old Dominion defensive end Oshane Ximines. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound Ximines was a four-year starter and a two-time first-team Conference USA selection. As a senior, Ximines had 12 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss.
