IV:  Drafting Logan Bruss

The LA Rams need to put their money where their mouth is, or in the case of the offensive line, to put their picks where the needs are. Even as the team re-upped a number of offensive linemen, the team lost two quality starters with the retirement of Andrew Whitworth and the free agency defection of Austin Corbett.

Even as the team appeared to have a plan in place to promote from within, the depletion of roster talent at the offensive line is both undeniable and unmistakable. The team has huge shoes to fill, and may not do so completely this season. While the need to backfill the roster is tough enough as is, the task is nearly impossible if the front office failed to act.

The Rams got their guy

But act it did. In fact, if reports both during and after the LA Rams NFL Draft at the home in Hollywood Hills are to be believed, the Rams landed the young man who topped their board at the 104th overall pick, even as they feared the need to trade up to grab him.

Logan Bruss is not a superstar of the draft. No rookie selected at the end of Round 3 in any draft should face the burden of expecting big things in just his rookie year. But playing as a starter, with the allowance to learn and make mistakes as he grows into the role, is a realistic goal that he could surpass this year.

Reports claim that he has been penciled in as the Rams’ starting right guard from the moment the team selected him. That doesn’t seem to fit the team’s track record of redshirting nearly every rookie. But Logan Bruss could prove to be the exception.
