With the 100th overall pick of the 2024 NFL Draft

The LA Rams select OT Blake Fisher, out of Notre Dame. The Rams do not ignore the offensive line, finally adding a solid blocker to the offensive tackle room. Fisher is a 6-foot-6 312-pound offensive tackle out of Notre Dame who is not named Joe Alt. Don't let that fool you, as Fisher is a powerhouse blocker in his own right.

Fisher has all of the attributes that OL coaches look for in an NFL starting offensive tackle. He simply needs to sew everything together with a bit of an aggressive mean streak on the football field. Because his teammate was Joe Alt, who was Notre Dame's left tackle, Fisher played right tackle. Can he compete for a left tackle role? As long as he is not up against Joe Alt, yes.

He has a solid initial pop out of his stance, and works well with good hand placement and solid feet movement. He is able to maintain his balance even with fierce bull rushes, and knows how to lock up a defender to stop him dead in his tracks. In run blocking, Fisher can create running lanes with a powerful push, and is even a solid blocker in open space.

To Recap Days 1 and 2 for the Rams draft class

  • Pick 20 - Quinyon Mitchell, DB, Toledo
  • Pick 52 - Bralen Trice, Edge, Washington
  • Pick 83 - Cole Bishop, DB, Utah
  • Pick 84 - Audric Estime, RB, Notre Dame
  • Pick 100 - Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

The Rams may not get 'everything' that fans may seek in the first two days with this mock draft, but the team has the potential to see three or four starters from the group right out of the gates. I love the tandem of Cole Bishop and Quinyon Mitchell as reinforcements to the secondary, and Trice is at least a strong rotational piece of the pass rush puzzle.

If the team can manage to share part of the running work load with Estime, I believe that Kyren Williams can stay healthy all season long. And I would not rule out Blake Fisher as a strong competitor for a starting role in the Rams offensive line in 2024.
