3. Evans, Edwards can learn from veterans

While Andrew Whitworth may only have one more season left in him after considering retirement this offseason, the Rams also moved on from Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan this offseason, showing the offensive line will look a little different in 2019.

Since 2017, Los Angeles has done an amazing job putting together one of the best offensive lines in the NFL to make sure Jared Goff receives the best protection possible.

Saffold and Sullivan may be out of the picture, but from an overall perspective, the Rams should be just fine with their offensive line for the 2019 season, but also having some extra depth doesn’t hurt.

That’s where Bobby Evans (third round) and David Edwards (fifth round) come into play, as Los Angeles hopes these two mid-round picks turn out to be complete steals one day to keep the offensive line in great shape.

One of the great factors about this situation for the Rams is both Evans and Edwards are in a position where the team can afford to be a little patient with these two rookies before having to worry about them having a chance to start.

Of course, if Evans or Edwards or even both managed to quickly develop into reliable offensive lineman in the NFL, the Rams wouldn’t be upset one bit.
