The Los Angeles Rams came into the 2018 NFL Draft with a roster need at linebacker.

And while they waited until the fifth round to get started on adding talent there, they took Virginia Cavaliers ILB Micah Kiser at #147, traded up for Oklahoma Sooners EDGE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo at #160 and then just took Louisville Cardinals OLB Trevon Young at #205.

We’ll sort through the depth chart over the rest of the offseason once we get done with the draft and pick up the new undrafted free agents, but Young’s an interesting candidate in this camp battle.

Here’s NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein’s scouting report on Young:

Long-limbed and angular with physical traits but a lack of power at the point of attack, Young is still in the process of recovery after a devastating hip injury suffered in his bowl game in 2015. Young’s tape near the end of the year was substantially better than early on and there is a chance he could round back into his old form, but Combine medicals will be essential in giving him that chance. A move from 4-3 end to a role as stand-up outside linebacker could benefit him.

Grade: A

Value, fit and upside. A perfect Day 3 pick!
