LA Rams Draft: Top 5 prospects from the Atlantic Coast Conference
Florida State defensive tackle
The Rams lack quality depth within the interior line position going into 2021. While DL Aaron Donald is considered a future Hall of Famer and recognized as one of the most feared defensive players to ever play the game, he needs more to share the load.
However, Los Angeles has never really focused on the position since drafting the three-time defensive player of the year in 2014. Therefore, drafting another interior lineman would not only help Aaron Donald succeed even more but the veteran would mentor the rookie, assisting as a valuable part in his development.
Heavily recruited out of high school, Seminoles head coach Jimbo Fisher got a dominant interior lineman in a former five-star recruit, Marvin Wilson. At 6-foot-5 and 305-pounds, Wilson has shown time and time again how dominant and vicious he can be in the trenches. Due to a season-ending ankle injury this past season, his draft stock has fallen pretty significantly.
In 2019, he led the team in sacks with five sacks showing his ability to blow up blocks and raw strength to explode gaps in the run game. Pairing him up with superstar Rams Defensive Tackle, Aaron Donald will help him succeed within the trenches. This can potentially result in Wilson becoming Aaron Donald’s right-hand man, producing the most fearsome interior line in the NFL.
