New LA Rams trade-filled mock draft swells roster with young talent
By Bret Stuter
With the 192 pick
With the 192nd pick of the 2023 NFL Draft, the LA Rams pick safety Jammie Robinson from Florida State University. This young man is a true cover safety, standing 5-foot-11 and weighing in at just 194 pounds. While the Rams normally might steer clear of a prospect with raw rough edgers, the Rams will be bolder in this draft with the coaching tandem of Aubrey Pleasant and Jimmy Lake in the house.
The LA Rams would love to get better pass coverage at the back end of their defense, and Jammie Robinson is an ideal prospect to make that happen. He is the type of safety whose coverage skills are so good that many teams will view him as a slot cornerback. But the LA Rams need a safety who can stick to receivers like Velcro, and Jammie can deliver on that expectation (Bonus points for the name Jammie too!)
Robinson is the type of prospect who could develop quickly for the LA Rams, particularly if he excels in training camp and impresses the coaching staff. The Rams know that their secondary is vital to the success of the team in 2023, and Jammie Robinson is a player who I expect could be a solid contributor for the Rams this year.
Okay, so why is he still on the board here? He is raw, and there are a number of great options for defensive back in 2023. He has all of the qualities for a significant contributor, but it will take work to refine his characteristics into an NFL dependable safety. That will turn other teams elsewhere in their hunt for secondary upgrades. But the LA Rams will be happy to give this young man a chance to realize his dream. And with the team's new DB coaching tandem, the Rams are the ideal landing spot for Jammie.
