2019 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: Los Angeles Rams focus on linebacker first round
By Dan Parzych
In the first edition of the 2019 NFL Mock Draft, the Los Angeles Rams focus on improving the linebacker position.
From now until the end of April, there will be plenty to discuss when it comes to the Los Angeles Rams in 2019 NFL Mock Drafts, especially since the NFC champions have a few areas in need of improvement.
Two years ago, the Rams were viewed as one of the most frustrating teams to follow in the NFL, as they were coming off a four-win season, and ranked dead last in the NFL by only averaging 14 points per game.
Luckily, Sean McVay wasted little time making the necessary adjustments on both sides of the football to help Los Angeles become one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL. And while it was difficult to watch the Rams lose to the Patriots in Super Bowl 53 the way they did, this team still has plenty to be proud of from the previous two seasons.
Of course, just because Los Angeles has seen plenty of success over the last two seasons doesn’t necessarily mean it’s guaranteed to happen again during the 2019 season, as the team will look to free agency and the upcoming draft to put them in the best position possible to do so.
Unless the Rams pull off another one of their surprise moves similar to last offseason, this will mark the first time since 2016 when they traded up to land Jared Goff at No. 1 Los Angeles actually have a first-round pick, although the previous moves were well worth it.
Depending on how the first round goes, Los Angeles should be able to fill one of their top needs right away at No. 31 once they’re officially on the clock in a few weeks from now. For now, it’s time to have a little fun to see what the Rams may end up doing by putting together the first of many NFL Mock Drafts to help pass the time before the end of April arrives.
