The LA Rams will be awarded a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. We ran a Mock draft to measure the impact. The difference is noticeable
As the LA Rams continue to digest, plan, and act in one of the most important offseasons of head coach Sean McVay‘s tenure, and perhaps in the team’s recent history, small changes are amplified simply from the importance of the moment.
It’s a time where the legacy of McVay is truly facing a monumental test. Will he simply be a one-and-done flash in NFL history? Or will he bring the LA Rams roaring back to contend for the NFL Championship once more? It hangs on the balance of this offseason. With ten unrestricted free agents testing the NFL market this year, and another eight players without 2020 contracts to return to the Rams. So far, the Rams have retained offensive lineman but opted for new blood on the team’s defense.
In the week leading up to the new NFL calendar year, which begins on March 18, 2020, the Rams must determine whether to use either the franchise or transitional tags on pending unrestricted free agents. The team must also determine who, if any, of the restricted free agents they will offer a qualified tender offer. And who of the exclusive restricted free agents they will offer a qualifying minimal offer. Finally, the Rams must decide if they will pick up the team option year on slot cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman in 2020.
So much to decide, so little time. But while the team’s front office works through those issues, they will also be working closely with positional coaches and three new coordinators to set their 2020 NFL Draft Board. With so little free salary to pursue NFL veterans via the free agency market, the 2020 NFL Draft takes on an even more important component for the team’s success
