Players selected so far

To get caught up, you can check out our draft tracker which is updated in live time throughout the draft. There, you can get a quick but thoughtful summary of each player selected, direct links to their draft profiles, and a short analysis of how the player may fit in the team roster.

But since you are here, we can give you some quick thoughts about each player selected by the Rams so far:

Round 1 Pick 19

OLB Jared Verse is the first player selected by the LA Rams, and he surprisingly fell from a projected Top 10 ranking to the team at 19. He is exactly what the defense, and the team, needed to debut on Day 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft, as he was one of the players that many fans ignored as someone who was all but out of reach.

Forget potential. OLB Jared Verse is a blue-collar guy who works his tail off to show up on the practice field and on game day. He loves his work, shows up early and leaves late. The reason? He wants to be there earlier than and stay later than . . .

Round 2 Pick 39

DT Braden Fiske is the second player chosen by the Rams. To move up and get him, the Rams had to part with a Round 2 and 5 pick in 2024, and a Round 2 pick in 2025. But I completely understand what the team is thinking here, and I completely understand why they wanted to get Braden Fiske.

I foresee Fiske doing for Jared Verse (and other defensive players) what Matthew Stafford does for WR Cooper Kupp (and all of the team's skill players). Braden Fiske loves the game, and shows up early to get a jump start in the film room, and leaves late to get in extra workouts. He will attract other players to show up early and leave late as a result.

Fiske is already well versed (pun intended) with his teammate, Jared Verse due to their time together on the Florida State defense. And that synergy and familiarity will jumpstart the learning curve of both players as they pivot from college to professional football.

Round 3 Pick 83

RB Blake Corum is one more runner whose size and style will immediately be seen like RB Kyren Williams or Ronnie Rivers. He even bears a strong resemblance (size-wise) to former Rams RB Darrell Henderson. Corum stands 5-foot-8, weighs 205 pounds, and is a touchdown machine.

Though a bit undersized, his runs into defenses has the aggregate effect of a prize fighters body blows, wearing down their ability to tackle and to make plays. Currently, he immediately gets pencilled in as the primary backup running back, and could see plenty of work in 2024 if Kyren Williams is injured.

Round 3 pick 99

DB Kamren Kinchens is a player who I love on this roster. While a safety in title, he has ninja-like pass coverage skills that always seems to have him in optimal position to make a play for the football, while not sacrificing opportunities to make the tackle if a catch is made.

He is a solid fit for the team's newly refurbished secondary, adding that ball-hawking center fielder that this team needs so desperately. I can see his immediate impact on the team, and believe that he will be earn an immediate rotational role, and could be the fourth starter in the secondary on opening day of the 2024 NFL season.
