2022 NFL Draft: Big board and first round results

What happened and how it impacts the Rams

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Ohio State vs Alabama Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Los Angeles Rams fans will have to wait until late tonight, and possibly tomorrow, to go on the clock with the team, but there are 103 players to be chosen before that moment strikes. The best LA fans can do is hide and watch, anticipating a Les Snead blockbuster trade or hoping a desired player falls far enough for the Rams to snatch him up

Over the last week Turf Show Times has offered up a mock draft of LA Rams picks covering the draft board from picks #104 through #262. Who are the players that will be gone before their first choice and could one, or more, favored prospects fall within LA’s grasp?.

One caveat, this is not a prediction of how the draft will shake out. Just one fans view of of how the prospects should be ranked.

Let’s put it to the forum. Which teams were winners and who were losers in 1st round and did any picks surprise you?
