Here’s what the Rams are holding on to after today’s news.

The Los Angeles Rams are reportedly giving up a 2018 NFL Draft fourth-round pick and a 2019 NFL Draft second-round pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for CB Marcus Peters and their 2018 NFL Draft sixth-round pick. I haven’t seen it reported whether it’s the Chief’s natural sixth-round pick or the compensatory pick they were awarded this week for losing Super Bowl-winning QB Nick Foles in free agency to the Philadelphia Eagles.

So with a bit of uncertainty yet to clear up, here’s what they’re looking at for their draft order in about two months:

2018 NFL Draft LA Rams Order

Rd # overall # in round Pick
Rd # overall # in round Pick
3 87 23 Rams pick
4 111 11 Rams pick (via Dolphins)
4 135 35 Rams pick (via Giants)
4 136 36 Rams pick (via Patriots)
6 176 2 Rams pick (via Giants)
6 183 9 Rams pick (via Dolphins)
6 194 20 Rams pick (via Lions)
6 195 21 Rams pick (via Bills)

Yes, you’ve got some gaps there. There’s the early 64-pick gap due to the Sammy Watkins trade sending the Rams’ second-round pick to the Buffalo Bills, and there’s the 73-pick gap now due to the Peters trade.

The Rams still hold their Day 1 pick, a Day 2 pick and a slew of picks in quick succession to add to the roster.

Oh, and we got Marcus Peters on the cheap.
