This offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here’s a look at what’s out there for Wednesday, April 25th about your Los Angeles Rams:

NFL Draft Predictions for All 32 Teams: Who's Trading Up, More

While we are just one day away from the official start of the 2018 NFL Draft, there are still many questions surrounding the league’s marquee event.

Which teams could trade up for a quarterback? Which clubs will move back? What prospects are each team targeting? These are just a few of many swirling around the NFL community.

But with the Draft fast approaching, ESPN.com’s NFL Nation is making one bold prediction for every team, to help alleviate some of those questions. Here’s what the group had to say about the Los Angeles Rams:

“The Rams will trade up for a Round 2 pick to draft an edge rusher.”

They have four picks between Rounds 3 and 4, then another four in Round 6. They can use some of that capital to help address what is a clear and immediate need on a roster that is ready to contend for a Super Bowl. The Rams are without their two starting outside linebackers from last year. Robert Quinn was dealt to the Dolphins and Connor Barwin remains a free agent, with the Rams seemingly preferring to move on. They're high on Samson Ebukam and Matt Longacre, the next guys in line. But they need to shore this up with a young, controllable, starting-caliber player, and the best way to do that is through the draft.

Gurley Reflects on His NFL Draft Experience

Rams running back Todd Gurley was drafted by the Rams as the 10th overall pick in 2015.

From that point forward, the Georgia product has been instrumental to the team’s overall success — recording an Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, two Pro Bowl trips, an All-Pro designation, and an NFL Offensive Player of the Year honor in the process.

And with the 2018 NFL Draft on the horizon, USA Football is helping Gurley reflect on his own experience in the Draft with this new video. In the post, Gurley looks back on his experience and gives advice to the new set of prospects who will be waiting to hear their names called come Thursday night.
