RAMS’ FIVE-YEAR DRAFT BREAKDOWN

BACKUPS 1 0 2 2 5

OUT OF LEAGUE 4 5 2 1 0

TOP 3 NEEDS IN 2018 NFL DRAFT

1. Outside linebacker: Robert Quinn was traded and Connor Barwin remains unsigned as a free agent. While second-year man Samson Ebukam is slotted at one spot, the Rams desperately need someone else on the other side.

2. Inside linebacker: Alec Ogletree was traded away, creating a huge need alongside Mark Barron. The Rams believe there are quality options in the later rounds.

3: Tight end: Head coach Sean McVay‘s offense works best with a dynamic two-tight end set. The Rams are still trying to get that dynamic figured out.

Below is a list of all eight of the Rams’ picks, with players suggested by NFLDraftScout.com.
