No arguing with success
The LA Rams had last drafted in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft when the team used the first pick to select quarterback Jared Goff. Since that moment, the Rams have traded away their first-round pick in the 2017-2023 NFL Drafts. That will be a seven-year drought regarding drafting on Day 1. If the Rams find another elite-level veteran on the market, that drought could continue on for more years than that.
They caught some vitriol and social media backlash in the offseason. Here was one that caught a bit of attention at the time.

The Rams made another blockbuster trade, this time to acquire a quarterback. Now, what have they got to show for their efforts?
