Round 5 pick 154

TE Erick All out of Iowa has some pretty lofty goals to achieve in 2024. The Rams selected RB Kyren Williams in Round 5 of the 2022 NFL Draft, and WR Puka Nacua in Round 5 of the 2023 NFL Draft. The team even tried to trade up in 2023 for TE Dalton Kincaid and in 2024 for TE Brock Bowers. So this team has a bigger role for tight end, and so far continues to look for 'that guy.' Could Erick All be the hidden gem this offense so desperately craves at the position?

I'm convinced that the Rams have a plan at tight end, one that includes a larger role in the offense in terms of pass-catching. And yes, I believe that between Davis Allen and Erick All, that plan can be deployed. After all (pun intended), Erick All is a 6-foot-4 252-pound behemoth who if medically cleared can stretch defenses, create separation, block, and put up healthy chunks of yards after the catch.

Durability is a question mark. But if he is back and healthy, he is a bargain late in Round 5.

Round 6 pick 196

WR Ryan Flournoy out of Southeast Missouri is a small school prospect with big time production. Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 202 pounds, he has the prototypical size to succeed in this offense. But can he earn offensive snaps and get targeted? Yes, he can. Don't let the late selection fool you. This WR class is stacked, but there is only one Rams offense to unleash the Kraken in this bumper crop of receiving prospects.

At this stage of the draft, you like to see athleticism, upside, and a niche role to make an immediate impact. Flournoy buries the needle on athleticism and upside. The question is, does he offer enough variation to this offense to be more than just a guy thrown onto the football field if a player is injured?

He is versatile enough to line up in the slot or outside. He has enough speed and a tremendous leap to make him an ideal deep threat recdeiver. He has good hands, instinctively finds soft spots in zone coverage, and represented himself well against competition at the Reese Senior Bowl.

He is a scrappy passionate wide receiver who is very coachable and productive. HC Sean McVay will love him in training camp, and you can expect to see him on the football field as a result.
