The LA Rams should select an offensive lineman in the NFL Draft at pick 52. Here’s a few candidates.

There’s a good chance that the Los Angeles Rams could lose Andrew Whitworth to free agency. He becomes an unrestricted free agent in March. The Rams have the opportunity to find a replacement in the upcoming NFL draft.

In 2019, the Rams struggled offensively, especially in the run game. They were the 26th best running team by averaging 93.7 yards per game. Todd Gurley rushed the ball 223 times for 857 yards with 12 touchdowns. They have to improve in this area to get back into Super Bowl contention.

The battle in the trenches is where the game is won or lost. You have to be able to move the chains downfield. If not, it tends to be a very long day. The Rams must fortify the offensive side of the ball. They have a dominating defensive line.

Los Angeles will draft their first player in the 2020 NFL draft wit the second round 20th pick. They traded their first rounder to Jacksonville for Jalen Ramsey. There are quality linemen for the Rams to choose from to bolster their line.

Round 2 options

Here’s a look at some players that the LA Rams could pick in the second round.

First, Josh Jones is a big left tackle from the University of Houston. He stands six feet seven inches tall weighing 310 pounds. He has started at left tackle for the past three seasons.

Next, Terence Steele, of Texas Tech, has starting potential from day one. Charlie Campbell of reports the following about Steele:

"The Red Raiders senior tackle had a quality 2019 that helped his draft stock. Teams like his length on the edge, which is said to include 36-inch arms. Steele is a good athlete and has starting size for the NFL."

Finally, Washington Husky Trey Adams might be the Rams target. His athleticism for a big man, six feet eight inches tall weighing 314 pounds, makes him flexible to play either left or right tackle. The Rams can always use multiple position players.
