The top 50 remaining prospects for Les Snead to mull over

Les Snead and Sean McVay didn’t zig or zag. They didn’t reach wildly. They took a solid offensive lineman with a high floor and delighted Los Angeles Rams fans by selecting Logan Bruss of Wisconsin at pick #104. There is a lot to like about Bruss and he is already schooled/experienced in the wide zone run game.

What is LA’s next move? If they are drafting to fill a need, then cornerback, edge, or running back depth could be on the docket. Or if things fall right, maybe double down on the offensive line. With their talented top half of the roster, maybe planning for the future and reinvigorating the special teams units would be the best move. One of the few prospects linked to LA was San Diego State punter Matt Araiza.

Any way they go, there is still much talent to chose from. Here’s list of the top 50 remaining prospects, by position, from my big board.

There are other players, not listed above, who could help out the Rams at pick #142. Cornerbacks Damarri Mathis and Kalon Barnes, running backs Kevin Harris and Ty Chandler and off ball linebackers Malcom Rodriguez and Aaron Hansford are all athletic and have relatively high floors for a late fourth round pick.

It’s not a position of need, but getting defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey, who has a second round grade, late in fourth, would offer some real value. He had a strong week at the Senior Bowl, one of the standouts according to multiple reports.

The Rams have seven picks in rounds four through seven and that is before any of Les Snead’s wheeler-dealer moves, so the final day of the draft will be wild. But in most fans eyes, by drafting an offensive lineman first, Snead is off to a good start,
