The Los Angeles Rams first selection in the 2023 NFL Draft will be 36th overall unless they decide to trade up into the first round. Some reports have indicated the Rams could move up in the draft to draft a quarterback. But what if there is another prospect worth targeting?
Here is my first of three mock drafts that I will do before April 27th.
The 2023 NFL Draft, located in Kansas City, is just three weeks away. Round 1 will start on Thursday, April 27th at 8:00 pm EST. Rounds 2-3 will commence on Friday at 7:00 pm EST. And Rounds 4-7 will resume on Saturday at 12:00 pm EST.
Rams trade: pick 36, pick 77
Jaguars trade: pick 24
1.24 - Rams select DL, Calijah Kancey, Pittsburgh (from JAX)

Kancey may not be Aaron Donald, but the defensive lineman plays with quickness and tenacity that resembles the future hall of famer. Kancey has a little less production than Donald’s collegiate resume. Pairing the two together would reinforce the defensive line, providing Donald with a running mate to get after the quarterback while also offering Kancey a quality tutor to become a seasoned professional in the NFL.
Rams trade: pick 69
Steelers trade: pick 80, pick 120
3.80 - Rams select EDGE, Tuli Tuipulotu, USC (from PIT)
Tuli Tuipulotu led the nation with 12.5 sacks this year, the most by a Trojan in a single season since 2003! pic.twitter.com/VrAx4w4fWm— USC Trojans (@USC_Athletics) December 8, 2022
4.120 - Rams select TE, Luke Schoonmaker, Michigan (from PIT)
Looking through draft rankings and I’m still really surprised when I see Luke Schoonmaker not among top TEs— Eric Galko (@EricGalko) February 22, 2023
Plus blocker, natural hands catcher, plus athlete, and can win in-line and in space as a receiver.
Seems forgotten about in strong TE class, but shouldn’t be. #ShrineBowl pic.twitter.com/cpgGMA97Ix
