The pre-draft process will look very different this year as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, with the NFL scrapping the scouting combine in its traditional format. Meetings will prospects will continue to be held virtually, while pro days will become increasingly important to watch, too.

The Rams have begun meeting with prospects already, and according to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, they held a pre-draft Zoom session with Wisconsin-Whitewater center Quinn Meinerz.

Meinerz was a standout player at the Senior Bowl this year, which is where he gained a lot of exposure nationally. Being a small-school prospect, his stock has been on the rise ever since his performance in Mobile.

Gathering intel on him is extremely important, too, because he’s a Division III prospect who didn’t play in 2020 due to the cancellation of non-FBS football last season. But after dominating in 2019, he could find himself being drafted in the second or third round come April.

Austin Blythe is set to be a free agent and if he leaves, the Rams’ interest in Meinerz could grow as they search for a replacement in the middle of their offensive line.
