We're told there hasn't been a more surprising player for the Rams this offseason than fifth-round TE Michael Hoomanawanui, who, aside from WR Danny Amendola, has been the team's most reliable receiver. "He did not catch a lot of passes at Illinois, but to the Rams' scouting department's credit, it looks like they've found themselves a guy with real good all-around potential," one team insider said of Hoomanawanui. The rookie showed off his steadily growing chemistry with QB Sam Bradford with a pair of TD catches in the Rams' victory over New England in the third preseason game. "With Daniel Fells out after suffering a hyperextended knee, he did a lot of damage against the Patriots' starters. He's got really good hands — he made one great one-handed catch against New England — and while he's not a speedster, he's pretty athletic and just seems to find ways to get open."
