Rams selected Missouri CB E.J. Gaines with the No. 188 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Gaines (5-foot-9 5/8, 190) was a three-year starter for the Tigers, finishing his career with 14 tackles for loss, eight interceptions, and three forced fumbles. He ran 4.48 at the Mizzou Pro Day. Although Gaines is slightly built, he held 6-foot-5 Mike Evans to four catches for eight yards (not a typo) in the Tigers' November win over Texas A&M. Gaines is a feisty, physical zone corner and was a standout gunner on Missouri's special teams. He projects as a No. 2 or 3 corner. Sat, May 10, 2014 04:14:00 PM

Missouri junior CB E.J. Gaines has added 10 pounds this offseason in preparation for SEC run-oriented offenses.

Obviously Gaines played against pass happy, Big 12 offenses, in his first two collegiate season with tremendous success after registering 16 pass breakups and two interceptions last year. Coming from the Big 12, Gaines will have to adjust to fewer three step drops and quick hitting passes while anticipating offenses challenging further downfield.
