1. Byron Murphy

Between Marcus Peters entering the final year of his contract on top of the fact that Aqib Talib isn’t getting any younger, and could be heading towards retirement in the next few seasons, the Rams need some sort of game plan at cornerback.

Even if Los Angeles were able to get by for the most part in 2019 with their current duo, the team could find themselves in a position next offseason where both Peters and Talib are no longer in the picture.

In other words, the Rams need to make sure they have the necessary depth at cornerback to put them in better position since the last thing they would want to do is start from scratch with inexperienced defenders.

Rightfully so, Byron Murphy has made a strong case for himself as one of the top players at his position from this year’s draft class, and while the Washington standout may prefer to start right away as a No. 1 or No. 2 cornerback, there’s nothing wrong with learning for a year.

All things considered, Murphy on the Rams would be amazing for both parties since the cornerback would be joining a top contender in the NFL while becoming part of a defense with a reputation for being one of the best across the league.
