Today’s gonna be a wild one, Los Angeles Rams fans. Stay on your toes.
Rams General Manager certainly is kicking things off with the #111 pick and taking:
Michigan State Spartans C Brian Allen
Is it needs-heavy to this point? Perhaps. LT Andrew Whitworth is 36-years old and C John Sullivan is turning 33-years old in August. Long-term (and maybe medium-term), the Rams needed help at both positions. So they may not have been immediate needs (i.e. for 2018), but they were needs nonetheless on the horizon.
As for Allen, he’s a beefcake. His brother, Jake Allen, played for the New Orleans Saints the last two years. So he’s got bloodlines. It’s just a question of applicability at this level and a timeline of when the Rams will look for him to take over the post-Sullivan center depth chart.
Welcome to the Rams, Brian!
