Plan B

Of course, there is always a chance that the position and/or player targeted by the LA Rams will not be available when the Rams step up to the podium. So they’ll need to have a Plan B in place to navigate a different order of draft prospects.

With the 88th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams select offensive tackle Spencer Brown from Northern Iowa.

Fee-Fie-Foe-Fum. Wait, we already did that? Well, then Fee-Fie-Foe-Fum-2.0

Well, how else do you introduce a 6-foot-8 314-pound behemoth offensive tackle? Spencer Brown is the silver dollar of rookie prospects. That’s because he is just as valuable on either side of the offensive line. He played at the offensive right tackle at Northern Iowa, but he has all of the makings to flip around to the other side.

Balances on the head of a nail

Dancing bear, ballerina elephant, pick a cliche that gives a vivid image of a huge creature balancing on the head of a nail and you’ve got a description for Brown. Brown is huge and lean and muscular. He was very athletic and was a standout at baseball and basketball. The influence of other sports is readily on display and gives rise to his ability to remain balanced and aggressive on the offensive line.

A late conversion to the offensive line, his Senior Bowl work shows that he has room to grow and develop. But with the Rams in a draft-now-play-later situation, Brown’s outer-space upside could be just too darn simply irresistible.

Brown may be a tad raw, but he’s huge already and can still pack on more muscle. He will need to learn how to achieve and sustain better leverage on smaller defenders, but the Rams have two incredible mentors in Andrew Whitworth or Rob Havenstein who can both show him the ropes, coach him up. A good fit for the Rams, today and tomorrow.
