28. Los Angeles Rams
Unlike most of the other teams in the league, the Los Angeles Rams found themselves at a disadvantage this year by not having a first-round pick, which is the last thing any team that only finished with four wins the year before can afford. The reason why the Rams went without a pick in the first round this year was from the trade with the Tennessee Titans to help land Jared Goff, but at least the team still managed to upgrade the passing game for their hopeful franchise quarterback.
Believe it or not, Los Angeles could end up with one of the biggest steals from the third round after landing Eastern Washington’s Cooper Kupp, as the former Eagles wideout could even make his way to being the No. 1 option at wide receiver. Seeing Kupp catch 428 passes over the last four seasons for 6,464 yards to go along with 73 touchdowns almost seems unheard of, and this selection could easily become one of those low risks with a high reward.
Of course, the one area Los Angeles could have focused on more in the draft was the offensive line since the unit will need to do a much better job at protecting Goff after last year, but the coaching staff seems confident enough in working with the current group. But most importantly, the Rams’ offense should be able to average more than 14 points per game like 2016 with the improvement in the passing game through the draft.
