Offensive center

All eyes will be on the LA Rams in the 2021 NFL Draft when the team prepares to announce their selection at the 57th pick.  And of course, the entire NFL expects that the Rams will name an offensive center. And for the fans who have awaited this moment, any other position may feel anti-climactic, if not downright disappointing

Cincinnati Bengals OC Billy Price is a player who could change all of that for the LA Rams. And he has been the talk of an NFL Trade, but not by us. Rather, a number of Bengals blog websites have cited the disappointment of a first-round draft pick who continues to sag to the bench come to the start of another NFL season.  And they believe that a timely trade is not only warranted but long overdue.

Of course, with a new season comes a new profession of bravado and commitment, and the 6-foot-4 308-pound offensive center is clearly saying all of the right things on the Bengals Booth podcast.  But his Pro Football Focus grades over the past three seasons have not been very promising.

The Rams have some experience with trading for an offensive lineman who is not living up to expectations, and Price could be a solid get if the Rams could pry him away from the Bengals prior to the 2021 NFL Draft.

In this exchange, the Bengals get the very versatile offensive tackle and a 2022 seventh-round draft pick, and the LA Rams land a promising, but as of yet undeveloped talented offensive center. A win-win exchange.
