2. Justin Layne
Could the Rams address their need at cornerback early on in the draft this weekend? Despite having a solid duo already at the position in Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, any selection of a cornerback would be for the long-term run on defense.
Obviously, Los Angeles is thrilled over what their cornerback duo will bring to the table once again for the 2019 season, but when it comes to 2020, there is some uncertainty with the position.
Between trying to figure out if Peters is worthy of a new contract to keep him around for years to come along with the fact that Talib isn’t getting any younger, the Rams want to make sure they’re well prepared for whatever happens after the 2019 season.
Since Los Angeles previously took the time to meet with Michigan State’s Justin Layne, it’s difficult not to wonder if this ends up being a perfect fit for the second round, that is of course if the Rams did trade down.
Layne has numerous strengths that stand out such as his impressive arm length or simply the way he’s able to adjust to key routes that has obviously caught the attention of the Rams. Now, the question becomes how serious Los Angeles is over the possibility of Layne coming on board, even if it meant limited action as a rookie.
