With the 234th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams have taken Pitt OLB Ejuan Price.

Price is a skilled edge rusher who tallied 24.5 sacks in the last two years under Head Coach Pat Narduzzi.

Perhaps more relevant, Price entered the rotation as a true freshman in 2011...just as then starlet DT Aaron Donald was growing into his skills at Pitt. Now six years later, the two are reunited in Los Angeles on the Rams.

The delay in Price’s career at Pitt was due to an injury to his pectoral muscle. A similar re-injury in 2014 that erased the entire year from his bio, Price’s last two years have been very impressive. If the medical clears and he can add some fitness and stamina to his game, he could find himself in the mix for a roster spot.

Here's how the major draft sites ranked him:

Mocking the Draft: 11th DE, 92nd overall
ESPN: 11th OLB, 197th overall
CBS Sports: 18th OLB, 228th overall

Ejuan Price, welcome to the Rams!
