NFL Draft 2013: Rams host Marcus Lattimore, Menelik Watson

Al Messerschmidt

St. Louis is hosting a pair of intriguing prospects in Lattimore and Watson.

The St. Louis Rams are hosting a couple of interesting prospects from down south in South Carolina Gamecocks running back Marcus Lattimore and offensive tackle Menelik Watson of the Florida State Seminoles, according to Jim Thomas.

Lattimore would be a logical and interesting pick for the Rams come April 25-27 at the 2013 NFL Draft. St. Louis needs to pick up a running back to replace Steven Jackson, who left to sign with the Atlanta Falcons.

Once thought of as a can't-miss, first-round prospect, Lattimore has suffered two torn ACL injuries over the past few seasons. Lattimore was injured last fall on a gruesome play against the Tennessee Volunteers when he tore every ligament in his knee.

Watson would be a fit as a backup for now and a possible starter if Rodger Saffold decides to leave after his contract runs out at the end of next season. With Jake Long on the left side, Watson appears to be a right tackle prospect for the Rams.
