Quarterback, Blake Bortles met with eight teams including the St Louis Rams during the NFL combine, according to reports.

Paul Tenorio of the Orlando Sentinel reports that Bortles of UCF met with the Houston Texans, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings.

The St Louis Rams have the second overall pick in the draft and could consider drafting a quarterback despite still having Sam Bradford under contract.

Rams head coach, Jeff Fisher dismissed all speculation regarding Bradford recently by declaring him the 2014 starter.

"We talk about extensions with all our players under contract," Fisher said. "Whether or not we do so with him, I don't know where all this came from, but Sam's our quarterback. He's going to be under center." stated Fisher.

It was thought that Bortles would be a top five selection in the drat with the Texans, Jaguars and Raiders in prime position for the UCF star.

Clearly the Rams are not entirely sold on Bradford, although they will have interviewed a number of other players during the week as part of an ongoing evaluation process.

The Rams most logical selection would still be one of the premier offensive tackles in the draft to protect whoever their starting quarterback may be. However this could change as the draft process continues.
