4. Which rookie stands out the most?
There are plenty of crazy facts to consider about McVay heading into his third NFL season as head coach with the Rams, but one that sticks out the most is the fact that he’s yet to have a first-round pick.
All three drafts under McVay have resulted in Los Angeles being without a first-round selection as a result of trades, but the good news is the team still managed to find plenty of success in the other rounds.
As for what to expect from this year’s class, well let’s just say the Rams certainly did their homework once again when it comes to surrounding the high potential for certain individuals.
From Taylor Rapp eventually developing into a starting safety to Greg Gaines looking to help fill the void left by Ndamukong Suh, Los Angeles has plenty of rookies worth monitoring once training camp officially starts.
However, if there were one player worth keeping an eye on the most, Darrell Henderson seems like a strong candidate since there still seems to be some sort of mystery over how much action Todd Gurley will see.
Even though running back arguably wasn’t one of the top priorities for the Rams in the draft, Henderson’s numbers alone from Memphis made him seem like a steal in the third round.
Knowing McVay, it wouldn’t come as a surprise at all if Henderson saw more action as a rookie than originally expected.
