The Los Angeles Rams went into the 2021 NFL Draft with six total selections, but they come out of it with nine new prospects to add to camp this summer. After trading down a total of three times, general manager Les Snead added multiple day three picks and will have an easier time not having to navigate undrafted free agency as ferociously thanks to the late additions.
Without a first round pick — because he’s been playing for them as an all-pro corner for the last 1.5 seasons already — here is the Rams 2021 NFL Draft class in full:
3.103 - LB Ernest Jones - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
4.117 - DT Bobby Brown III - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
4.130 - CB Robert Rochell - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
5.174 - DE Earnest Brown IV - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
7.233 - RB Jake Funk - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
7.249 - WR/TE Ben Skowronek - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
7.252 - DE Chris Garrett - DRAFT ANNOUNCEMENT
In 2020, the Rams were expected to go heavy on offensive line and they didn’t select one until Tremayne Anchrum in the seventh round.
In 2021, the Rams were expected to grab some offensive linemen early, and instead they made nine picks and not a single one plays along the line. Even the two tight ends might not really be tight ends.
No offensive linemen was actually to be expected.
