The Los Angeles Rams have been holding pre-draft meetings with a number of prospects in the 2021 class, chatting with them over videoconference as the NFL isn’t allowing in-person visits due to the pandemic. One player who’s garnered a lot of attention from the Rams is Florida State cornerback Asante Samuel Jr.

According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Rams held a second pre-draft meeting with Samuel recently, a clear indication he’s on their radar. Samuel is projected to be a Day 2 pick and could be a real target for Los Angeles at No. 57 overall, if he makes it to their initial selection in the draft.

Samuel ran the 40-yard dash in the range of 4.45 and 4.52 seconds at Florida State’s pro day, jumped 35 inches in the vertical and 10-foot-4 in the broad jump. He boasts good athleticism despite not being the biggest corner, making him a nice fit in the slot.

He broke up 29 passes in three seasons, to go along with 97 tackles and four interceptions.
