In a recent article by Pro Football Focus, analyst Seth Galina mocked the first three rounds for each of the four teams in the NFC West. Below are the three players Galina hand-picked for the Rams at #57, #88, and #103:

The Rams land a pair of Buckeyes in this one — one on either side of the ball. Davis was held as the potential top offensive guard a year ago before other players did enough to propel them past Davis in 2020, but that shouldn’t take away from the two-time All-American. He’s an immediate upgrade for the Rams up front.

Hilliard is an undersized backer at 6’1 and 230 pounds. He’s also a bit older than most prospects as the 2020 season was actually his sixth year of eligibility. In the six games he played in for the Buckeyes, he totaled 33 tackles, five tackles-for-loss, one interception, a forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries.

In 11 games this past season, the 6’4, 321-pound Tonga recorded 36 total tackles, 3.5 for loss, 3.5 sacks, and batted down five passes at the line of scrimmage. In the video below, for a man his size, Tonga runs extremely well. He’d be a solid player at nose in the middle of the Rams defensive line.
