Just a few weeks ago at the NFL owners meetings, coach Jeff Fisher sounded like the Rams might pass on Sammy Watkins. But the Rams sure are taking a long look at the star wide receiver from Clemson.

Widely considered the best wideout in the draft, Watkins paid a pre-draft visit to Rams Park on Tuesday, meeting with a variety of coaches and team officials.

It's against league rules for teams to work out draft prospects on these so-called "top-30" visits.

But the Rams will get that accomplished over the weekend; they are sending a contingent to Clemson, S.C., for a private workout with Watkins on Friday.
