Random Ramsdom: What position should Rams target with first 2021 draft pick?

First-round picks have been a thing of the past for the Rams ever since their last selection on day one back in 2016.

This team is all about day two and beyond.

With that in mind, I wanted to gauge the fan base’s opinion on where the Rams should lean with their first selection of the 2021 draft, which is set to be No. 57 near the bottom of the second round.

With a pick this late, top players at premium positions like offensive tackle, cornerback, and edge rushers will be gone for the most part, which only puts the Rams into a more difficult spot. With several pending free agents within those aforementioned position groups, Les Snead and company may be forced to find more of a bargain bin option. However, Rams fans may be able to rest easy as the front office has done an excellent of finding talent past the opening round of the draft, especially this past year’s event.

So where do all of you lean position-wise as of right now? Should the Rams find reinforcements for the secondary? Do they need to find someone to replace Leonard Floyd on the edge? Let me know below.

Now for today’s links.
