Rams pick Miami S Kamren Kinchens in 3rd round of 2024 NFL draft. What to know

The Los Angeles Rams selected Miami safety Kamren Kinchens with the 99th pick of the 2024 NFL draft. The junior earned back-to-back All-ACC First team honors in two seasons as a starter at Miami. Here’s what to know about Kinchens.

Kamren Kinchens scouting report

Kinchens was elite in his sophomore year, earning All-American and All-ACC First Team honors in 2022. He continued the strong play in 2023 with another All-ACC First Team nod because of his nose for the ball and toughness, despite missing two games with a head/neck injury. He’s a hard hitter, and is capable in run support. But NFL scouts are concerned with his lack of speed, and he has gotten mixed up in zone coverage before. But his instincts and ability to force takeaways make him an intriguing prospect for pro teams despite a lackluster day at the NFL combine.
