Now that the first day of the 2022 NFL Draft has come and gone, it’s time to zone in on who will be on the board later tonight when the Los Angeles Rams finally get on clock. Or will Les Snead put on his Green Shade visor and broker a deal?

There weren't a lot of surprises in round one, The picks were split equally between offense and defense. There were no real “reach” picks, the only three that were not considered consensus first round possibilities were linebacker Quay Walker from Georgia, tackle Tyler Smith of Tulsa and out of Tennessee Chattanooga, guard Cole Strange. Each of these three possessed stellar NFL traits, so proclaiming them a “reach” is not entirely accurate.

As the Rams first pick at #104 comes into view, who are some of the players who could fall into their grasp. Here is a list of candidates from my big board, numbers 51 through 103.

Players unlikely to fall

#57 Tackle Darrian Kinnard- Kentucky 6’ 5” 322 lbs.

#58 Cornerback Coby Bryant- Cincinnati 6’ 1” 193 lbs.

#59 Guard Jamaree Salyer- Georgia 6’ 3” 321 lbs.

#61 Quarterback Sam Howell- North Carolina 6’ 1” 218 lbs.

#62 Wide receiver George Pickens- Georgia 6’ 3” 195 lbs.

#63 Off ball linebacker Brandon Smith- Penn State 6’ 3 1/2” 250 lbs.
