Rams Workout Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins

Mike Ehrmann

For Colts fans hoping that Hopkins will still be there at pick No. 24, this is not good news.

If you have your heart set on the Indianapolis Colts potentially drafting Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins with the No. 24 overall pick this Thursday, Aaron Wilson may have just dashed your dreams to bits. Aaron has reported that the St. Louis Rams will hold a private workout with Hopkins. Head coach Jeff Fisher will attend this workout, along with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, wide receivers coach Ray Sherman, and quarterbacks coach Frank Cignetti.

The workout is scheduled just four days after Hopkins had his initial meeting with the Rams.

This news come on the heels of Yahoo! Sports' Jason Cole reporting this over the weekend:

Wide receivers are going to be popular starting at roughly No. 16, where St. Louis is likely to take Tavon Austin or DeAndre Hopkins. Keenan Allen and Cordarrelle Patterson are also looking like possible first-rounders with St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Houston, New England, Minnesota and Baltimore being teams that would be interested.

Assuming this isn't a smoke screen, Hopkins to the Rams would make some sense. He's a possession-style receiver with deceptive speed, a strong work ethic, and good hands. However, many around the league view Hopkins as a second round prospect, including Mike Mayock. The Rams have the No. 16 and No. 22 overall picks in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Speculation has suggested that Tennessee wideout Cordarrelle Patterson could go at No. 16, but Patterson reportedly did not interview well at the NFL Scouting Combine and has a few off-the-field concerns.
