It looks like Nate Davis is another name worth keeping an eye on for the Los Angeles Rams in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft.
In less than two weeks, the Los Angeles Rams will officially be participating in the 2019 NFL Draft along with every other team, and with the No. 31 pick, the NFC champions will have numerous strong options to consider in the first round.
From potentially adding another edge rusher to considering depth at cornerback, the Rams will most likely make their decision based off the best player available at one of their needs instead of focusing on a certain position right away.
With that being said, Los Angeles is expected to add depth to the offensive line at some point to the draft when looking at some of the changes the team went through this offseason, whether it was letting Rodger Saffold hit free agency or moving on from John Sullivan.
Does this mean Nate Davis end up being one of those players the Rams strongly consider going with?
Los Angeles has already been linked to numerous prospects to the offensive line in recent weeks, but it looks like they are one of 10 teams expressing interest in the UNC Charlotte star, and may have already met with the team, according to recent report by Mike Florio.
Davis may need to bulk up a little bit if he’s going to have any shot at making in the NFL, but just hearing the Rams expressing interest is another great sign since this means the team is considering all potential options for the offensive line in the draft.
As much confidence as Sean McVay has in other youngsters like Brian Allen and Joseph Noteboom to step up in 2019 when it comes to keeping the offensive line in great shape, the Rams head coach knows there are no guarantees.
At least with someone like Davis with his thick frame, this would provide Los Angeles with another potential prospect to work with on the offensive line to help build for the future.
More than ever, the Rams realize the importance of the offensive line to make sure Jared Goff receives the proper protection along with helping Todd Gurley receive as much assistance as possible now that his knee is apparently an issue.
Fans know that just because Los Angeles has visited or is planning a visit with Davis doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll end up on the team for the 2019 season, but also at least this provides another idea over the direction they’re focusing on.
Whether it happens to be in the first round or later on, it seems pretty clear that the Rams will look to add some depth to the offensive line at some point in the draft. And if Davis ends up being one of the players selected by Los Angeles, this could certainly help fill their need at guard or center.
