The LA Rams finally add OL help with Clemson OL Tremayne Anchrum, a huge competitor at multiple positions on the Rams offensive line
At pick 126 of the 2020 NFL Draft, the LA Rams pulled their only trade of the NFL Draft with the Houston Texans. Trading back 10 spots got McVay and Snead two extra picks in the seventh round (248, 250). With the first of them, the Rams picked a kicker for their own offseason competition; but their last pick is the most intriguing selection of the Rams 2020 NFL Draft
The Rams selected Clemson OT Tremayne Anchrum. Anchrum is a 6-foot-2 314-pound right tackle who played solid football for the Clemson Tigers for four seasons. Undersized for the offensive tackle role in the NFL, he was projected as a conversion candidate, a tackle would transition inside to the guard position in the NFL. Anchrum never really got hyped, and his stock never raised, but he is a really solid pickup, especially this deep in the draft. From his round-seven selection, he could be an incredible steal for the Rams.
As a junior, Anchrum gathered All-ACC second-team recognition, while he cracked the first team as a senior. That can tell us a lot about his character, game, and competitiveness. The two years Anchrum was honored by the ACC, the Tigers made it to the Championship game, winning it once in 2018.
A good athletic blocker that suits better a zone-blocking scheme and excels in the running game as a downfield blocker. His strength is good and can move blockers off the line of scrimmage. His feet and hips are quick to unlatch, a really hard player to bull rush.
His short arm length allows defenders to get into his body and allows them to use the full arsenal of rush moves. His technique needs polishing and has to get a better balance, often he is caught with the weight too forward in his stance.
Tremayne is a good move blocker, and I project him to be a swingman in the interior of the line, with maybe gaining some snaps in situational plays. With so many offensive line positions completely up in the air for the LA Rams after last year’s musical chairs, do not ignore the chance that Tremayne is very competitive and may earn a starting role for the team.
