Florio passed along the news Friday that the St. Louis Rams had finally begun signing draft picks. The Rams got two picks under contract last night, and the plugged-in folks at TurfShowTimes.com report that the team has locked up two more.
Watkins is considered a project out of South Carolina. He was the Gamecocks’ starting right tackle, but will kick inside to guard in training camp. Watkins has a legitimate chance to start as a rookie because the Rams have the worst left guard situation in football.
St. Louis now has four members of its ten-man draft class under contract.
