Yes, this would go against most of the NFL conventional wisdom, but seeing as the Rams will sign Marcus Peters, and taking a leap and saying that Los Angeles will find a way to keep Trumaine Johnson, General Manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay should consider drafting for the offensive line with their first round pick.


Well, if LA can thread the needle with Johnson, the need to load up on defensive picks slides, meaning that the next area where the Rams would benefit using a high draft pick would be on the offensive line, especially at center or any other high quality pick that’s available to help protect Jared Goff.

The Los Angeles Rams have the benefit of a lot of youth, especially at skill positions like defensive line, quarterback, and both the running back and receivers position.

Not so much on the O-line.

They’ll have some options should they find themselves in such a monster position. Frankly it would be a stroke of luck not often seen, but hey, it could very well happen.

Two names the Rams might have the fortune of being able to consider is center Frank Ragnow from Arkansas and maybe Billy Price (despite and injury) from Ohio State.

Hey I get it, it’s not the glamour position that generates a lot of ink, especially when you get down to where LA is selecting. But don’t kid yourself, the Rams don’t have the benefit of depth pushing their way into the starting lineup.

The Los Angeles Rams have gotten better everywhere in short order, especially via the draft.

Except maybe on the offensive line. Maybe this is the year they can finally make that leap, too.
