After skipping out on Round 1 due to the trade with the New England Patriots for WR Brandin Cooks, the Rams waited long and hard on Day 2 missing out on Round 2 due to the trade for former Buffalo Bills and now Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins.
So at #89, the Rams took:
TCU Horned Frogs OT Joseph Noteboom
It shouldn’t be considered a shocker by any means. The pick helps the Rams improve an aging offensive line with contract timing issues while adding to immediate OT depth. Despite the other options among the linebackers, Noteboom should be able to come in and compete for the future spots available on the line, and a year under the current coaching staff will only give him a leg up.
And with that, the Rams’ 2018 draft class is officially underway! No more picks for tonight, but we’ll be back tomorrow with a ton of capital to spend to help build out the depth on the roster.
