What if the LA Rams were to trade WR Robert Woods
By Jay Blucher
OPTION I: OT Liam Eicheberg, Notre Dame
If you are looking for the next starting left tackle for the LA Rams, look no further. Here he is. He stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 305-pounds. He is NFL-ready and is a huge asset for any team looking for some solid punch on the offensive line for a good running game.

OPTION II: IOL Alijah Vera-Tucker, USC
If you think that wasting a first-round pick on an offensive center is a mistake, you truly haven’t seen much of USC’s Alijah Vera-Tucker. He played left tackle for USC, projects as an NFL guard, but says that he could play offensive center in the NFL ‘with no hesitation’. This 6-foot-4 300-pound offensive lineman can realistically play virtually any position on the offensive line, which is a huge advantage for a center in that he understands how all of the other positions work.

OPTION III: WR Terrace Marshall Jr., LSU
Okay, here is the guy who would likely be asked to fill the void of Robert Woods. LSU’s wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. is a towering 6-foot-3 200-pound easy-to-find target for incoming quarterback Matthew Stafford. He is a big physical solid route runner who simply needs to clean up his blocking and his sure-handedness. Do you want a deep threat? Well then, you’ll want to hear about Terrace Marshall’s 4.4-second 40-yard dash time right?

OPTION IV: EDGE, Gregory Rousseau Miami
If at first, you don’t succeed, try try again. So it is with the LA Rams who find themselves in need of another EDGE rusher. The Rams are losing them by the pairs each year, so they need to keep the pipeline of incoming talented players filled each year. 6-foot-5 260-pounds Gregory Rousseau is more than enough to raise an eyebrow. The Rams project to lose DE Morgan Fox, and certainly are listening to offers for veteran Michael Brockers. Rousseau projects as a defensive end for now, but could he be more on the Rams defense?

OPTION V: LB Nick Bolton Missouri
The LA Rams may not have drafted a stud for the linebacker position for years, but that all changes if they call out the name of Missouri linebacker Nick Bolton in the 2021 NFL Draft. He is 6-foot-0 and 232-pounds but is already drawing buzz about becoming an immediate impact player for an NFL defense. He shines brilliance in stuffing the run and in pass coverage, and behind the likes of Aaron Donald would be a huge weapon for the Rams new defensive coordinator Raheem Morris

OPTION VI: LB Zaven Collins Tulsa
If Bolton comes off the board, don’t sweat the small stuff. Tulsa’s linebacker Zaven Collins may be just as dangerous. Collins stands a lengthy 6-foot-3 and weighs a thundering 260 pounds of a muscular fireplug. He was a former quarterback in high school, so he is a thinking linebacker who also loves to play the role of the punisher. He also possesses excellent pass coverage skills.
