See where the Los Angeles Rams stand in the 2017 NFL Power Rankings with the NFL Draft officially over.

With the NFL Draft officially in the books, the argument can be made the Los Angeles Rams benefitted enough to move up a few spots in the 2017 NFL Power Rankings, even if it wasn’t by much. For a team that desperately needed help in the passing game, it’s safe to say the Rams’ offense is going to show major improvement when compared to last year’s squad that only averaged 14 points per game.

After only winning four games all of last season, Los Angeles entered this year’s draft looking to provide more weapons for Jared Goff to work with, and rightfully so when seeing what the team had to surrender just to land the former California star with the top pick in 2016. A quarterback can only do so much on his own without the proper help on offense, and after seeing how the Rams made out in this year’s draft, it’s safe to say life is going to be much easier for Goff heading into his sophomore season.

Not only did Los Angeles use their first pick of the draft in the second round on a top pass-catching tight end in Gerald Everett, but the team added two more playmakers in the later rounds with Cooper Kupp (third round) and Josh Reynolds (fourth round). Only time will tell when it comes to whether these moves will help improve the Rams’ offense, but until then, let’s see where the team currently sits in the latest NFL Power Rankings following this year’s draft.
