Day 3 prospects

DeWayne Carter, Duke

6-foot-2 308-pound Duke defensive tackle DeWayne Carter is a stout defensive lineman who leverages strength and leverage to hold his ground to make plays at the line of scrimmage. He homes in on the football and takes a bee-line to make the tackle, shedding blockers in his path. He can get to the quarterback, and he has a solid record of high number of QB pressures. He needs to refine his tackling, and improve beating double teams. Projected Round 4.

Jordan Jefferson, LSU

LSU has multiple quality defensive linemen up for consideration in the 2024 NFL Draft, but 6-foot-2 323-pound defensive tackle Jordan Jefferson is not the least of the bunch. He is a solid nose tackle, but has enough versatility to be considered a viable option across the defensive line. He has the compact power build that the team seems to gravitate towards on the defensive line, and Jefferson has already mastered several indomitable pass rush moves to get after the QB from an interior position. He has great balance, and will attract double teams to keep him at bay. He needs to enhance his ability to beat cut blocks, and work on getting low to win the initial contact. Projected Round 6

While the Rams cannot select multiple players from the above list, it does show the range of options that the team has at just one position in the 2024 NFL Draft, and displays the depth of talent that is up for grabs.

These are just some of the prospects who could flourish in the LA Rams defense. Keep an eye on them as they put up their performances throughout the day.

And as always, thanks for reading.
