The LA Rams draft must target ILB talent

One position where the LA Rams draft should investigate at the Scouting Combine is the inside linebacker position, as the team currently has two inside linebackers under contract, according to Spotrac.

The LA Rams are thin on both the inside and the outside at linebacker, but veteran outside linebacker Leonard Floyd and the potential return of Von Miller means the LA Rams could still be in good shape on the outside. The inside linebacker position would be a position of need even if everyone re-signs.

The skillset needed to succeed in the inside linebacker for the LA Rams’ 3-4 defense limits the team’s options at the position. Still, there are a few talented and rather versatile prospects that the front office could draft to fill the role.

Inside linebacker may or may not be the LA Rams’ top need in the 2022 NFL Draft, depending on how the team is able to extend players before, during, and after the 2022 NFL free agency market opens up. The objective is to find players that can fit in the defense and are likely to be available at different draft picks, and you can bet that the scouting department has that list and is already checking it twice.

Any of the young men we are about to identify in this article could go on to become the next great inside linebacker for the 2022 NFL season. This year’s NFL Scouting Combine presents an excellent opportunity to get a first look at them. Some of them may even put on a great show wherever they may land in the NFL.
