The LA Rams are now two days into the 2022 NFL Draft and have just one roster addition to show for all this time and effort. But business is about to pick up in a major way as the team prepares to make their remaining seven picks in the last four rounds.  In fact, the final five picks for the LA Rams right now are scheduled to fall just 42 picks apart, or the equivalent of one full round in this draft.

In the sixth round, the Rams will be making their selections with the 211th, 212th, and 218th overall picks. That will be quite an express line, won’t it? For any other team, we could close our eyes and simply await the results, secure in our knowledge that any rookie prospect chosen on Day 3 of the NFL Draft should expect a short NFL career as a participant in one training camp.

But the LA Rams roll differently. Any player added to the roster has a chance to earn a spot on the active roster on the team’s practice squad and compete for a spot on the active roster next season. The Rams are currently at 68 players and are looking to fill their 90+1 roster slots.

Patience is needed right now. The LA Rams may have plenty of needs to thicken shallow roster depth, but there is only so much this team can accomplish with one selection.  As long as the 2022 NFL Draft board remains loaded with talented prospects, the Rams will have plenty of opportunities to find and draft players who can help the team this year.

But it’s the interval between picks that is tough. Coveted players who have persuaded each of us into believing what a great fit they would find on the LA Rams roster are picked by other teams. Instantly, potential allies to cheer for join opponents and will be players who will be cheered against.
