POLL, 2018 NFL Draft Results: Grading the Los Angeles Rams’ selection of Virginia ILB Micah Kiser with the 147th overall pick

New, comments

The Rams stick with defense adding linebacker depth with Micah Kiser.

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Virginia Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams selected Virginia Cavaliers ILB Micah Kiser with the #147 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.

The Rams drafted an inside linebacker to help compete for a starting position against Cory Littleton alongside ILB Mark Barron. He has been considered a little old school and more of a thumper at linebacker. He will almost certainly come in and compete on special teams

Here’s what Lance Zierlein had to say in his draft profile at NFL.com:

Kiser’s impressive production didn’t happen on accident and teams will have to weigh his consistent ability to make plays with his modest athletic ability and overall play speed. Kiser is a banger built to play inside the box, but he has limited range and may not offer much coverage ability. Unless he runs well and puts together a solid workout, he could fall in this draft, but his toughness and production give him a shot to be a backup.

Grade: B
