The Los Angeles Rams selected Michigan State Spartans C Brian Allen from Michigan State with the 111th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

With the Rams having a lot of uncertainty on the offensive line past this season, the pick really makes sense. Allen is an interesting option obviously as his name wasn’t “up there” in the rankings, but the Rams recognized a need to help the future of their offensive line.

Here’s what Lance Zierlein had to say about Allen in his draft profile:

Allen’s toughness and strength at the point of attack will endear him to offensive line coaches, but his physical limitations and likely “center-only” designation could hurt his draft standing. Allen is a grinder who needs to find a team with a running game that fits his makeup. Allen’s power and ability to generate some movement in the running game give him a good shot of making a roster and sticking with a club.

Grade: B
