If the LA Rams drafting CB at 104, they face a tough choice
The LA Rams enter the 2022 NFL Draft with plenty of places on the roster where added depth could be a huge benefit. But with only eight draft picks and some areas that are screaming for attention, the front office likely has a longer wish list than this draft can address.
Welcome to the LA Rams draft discussion.
The Rams’ organization decided to bolster the 2021 roster at the cost of 2022 draft day currency. Now, that bill comes due as the team enters the draft with the least value and as the last NFL team to make a selection. But recent reports indicate that the LA Rams may simply be crazy like a fox. Many analysts agree that the greatest value in the 2022 NFL Draft exists on Day 3, a day where the LA Rams have seven of their eight picks.
Quite the coincidence, eh? Somehow I suspect that was all part of the plan.
Rams draft must restock their roster
Of course, the talk about All-Pro veteran outside linebacker Von Miller being signed away by the Buffalo Bills has been lost in the shuffle. The LA Rams must make a decision on WR Odel Beckham Jr at some point. While the team has managed to extend QB Matthew Stafford, the team still has the extensions of both All-Pro WR Cooper Kupp and All-Pro DL Aaron Donald on the to-do list.
But the loss of the team’s number two cornerback, DB Darious Williams, hurts. When we talk about the LA Rams, we are usually talking about DB Jalen Ramsey, Donald, Stafford, or Kupp. But the loss of Williams cannot be overstated. Can the LA Rams address this loss in the NFL Draft? Realistically, do they have any other choice?
The Rams 2022 NFL Draft is now just one week away and with the 104th pick in the draft, let’s take a look at three cornerbacks that might be options for the LA Rams on day two and their first pick of the draft.
