Let’s get centered first

With the  57th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams select offensive center Creed Humphrey from the University of Oklahoma. And in their first selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Rams move to shore up the offensive line, a critically important step to ensure the success of new quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Not Quinn Meinerz? No. A true NFL-ready center.

The LA Rams will most certainly need to fill the center position, and while the LA Rams’ General Manager Les Snead has talked about how difficult the offensive center position is to fill from an NFL Draft, that is nevertheless, precisely what they should do this year.  If Oklahoma Sooners’ offensive center Creed Humphrey falls to the Rams at No. 57, they’ll toss that nonsense aside. Humphrey stands 6-foot-5, weighs 312-pounds, and has a strong wrestling background.

Nagy’s choice

And Nagy practically drools over this guy.

The word around is that he is one of the best Sooners’ offensive linemen, and any of that group that became draft-eligible was, indeed, drafted, so that says something right there. But he’s a big ole snarler who delivers play after play.  Right now, the Rams would field a much stronger offense with that type of player hiking the ball.  He represents tremendous value to the Rams at the 57th pick and would receive a standing ovation if the Rams should pull the trigger on him there.
