After beefing up the O-line with their first two picks, the Rams used #135 to address the defensive side.

Los Angeles Rams General Manager is anything but predictable. And the second pick from the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft is pretty obvious evidence.

After doubling up on offensive linemen, many fans were hoping to finally get that linebacking help either on the inside or at the edge. Instead, Snead went out to the edges of the draft world to bring in a name that very few have looked into:

Stephen F. Austin DL John Franklin-Myers

What do I know about John Franklin-Myers? Nothing! Where have I seen him? Nowhere!

Here’s a random tweet from friend of TST, Charles McDonald:

It’s as good a time as any to remind fans that the draft is an unknowable beast. That certain prospect won’t fall or that some prospect is a reach doesn’t line up with reality. We start from a place of assumption and reality ends up tearing that down and yet we argue with reality. It’s fun and stupid and fun.

Welcome to the Rams, John Franklin-Myers!
