St. Louis Rams select OL Mitchell Van Dyk

USA TODAY Sports

The Rams used the first of four seventh-round picks to add some depth the offensive line.

The St. Louis Rams used their first pick of four in the seventh round to select offensive tackle Mitchell Van Dyk from Portland State.

Offensive line depth is always a need, especially for the Rams who have been rocked by injuries to that unit over the years. Finding diamonds in the rough has been a specialty of this coaching staff, thanks to offensive line coach Paul Boudreau.

Coach Boo has a raw player in Van Dyk, but a guy who did start for three years in college. He's not considered to be much of a pass blocker. What he does do is play the run well. He'll get a shot in camp to prove he can stick or at least land on the team's eight-man practice squad after camp ends.

Van Dyk also happens to be 6'9. A very large man indeed.

Will the Rams use their remaining picks to move around in the seventh?
