Daily Dose: L.A.'s biggest offseason acquisition, a draft night trade scenario 

Each weekday, 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 17 about your Los Angeles Rams.


PROPOSED TRADE MOCK DRAFT's Bill Barnwell proposed a deal for each NFL team in his Wednesday All-Trade Mock Draft. Barnwell says it'll be tough for the Rams to move up from their No. 31 overall pick, but tossing in their 2020 second-round pick could help.

His proposed trade has the Rams jumping to the 20s to take a defensive tackle like Mississippi State's Jeffery Simmons.

Rams get: 1-22, 2020 fourth-round pick

Ravens get: 1-31, 3-94, 2020 second-round pick

"Unless they want to package both of their third-rounders to move up, the Rams probably will have to put their 2020 second-round pick into play. By including that pick and one of the third-rounders, the Rams probably have enough to approach the edges of the lottery."

Bleacher Report's Brad Gagnon has safety Eric Weddle as the Rams' top offseason acquisition heading into 2019.

Weddle will line up in the Rams secondary for year 13 back in his home state of California, but Gagnon says the veteran might have more gas in the tank.

"Eric Weddle might be beyond his prime, but it's hard to tell. The 12-year veteran is coming off an incredible three-year stretch with the Ravens in which he didn't miss a single game and was a perennial Pro Bowler. PerPFF, he missed just five tackles and gave up only 111 yards in coverage throughout the 2018 season, and he's only a year removed from a six-pick 2017 season."

Pro Football Focus pointed out offensive linemen Joe Noteboom and Brian Allen's small sample sizes, but high grades on Tuesday.

The pair didn't see much of the field in 2018, but is currently slated to step into holes on the offensive line left by left guard Rodger Saffold and center John Sullivan.
