Each weekday, 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 Thursday, April 25 about your Los Angeles Rams.
LAST-MINUTE MOCK DRAFT
In a fourth version of his mock draft posted Wednesday night, NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah has the Rams holding onto their No. 31 pick and addressing the offensive line in the first round.
Just after the Packers take Missouri quarterback Drew Lock at No. 30, Jeremiah sees the Rams drafting...
No. 31 OG Chris Lindstrom, Boston College - “The Rams need to get some reinforcements for the offensive line and Lindstrom is a perfect fit.”

NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported early Thursday morning that the Rams have been receiving calls from teams interested in the No. 31 pick. Should the Rams deal the late first rounder away, the 2019 NFL Draft will be the third straight draft in which the Rams come away without a first round pick.
POSSIBLE TRADING PARTNER
On Tuesday, general manager Les Snead said the Rams will prepare to draft at No. 31 because there is never a guaranteed trading partner. On Thursday, Bleacher Report’s Gary Davenport laid out a possible trade scenario for the Rams and Browns that could make both parties happy.
Cleveland Browns get: 2019 first-round pick (No. 31 overall) Los Angeles Rams get: 2019 second-round pick (No. 49 overall); 2019 third-round pick (No. 80 overall) - “If Clemson nose tackle Dexter Lawrence is available at No. 31, this deal would all but surely be off, as Lawrence would be a ready-made replacement for the departed Ndamukong Suh. The Rams also need to address the interior of their offensive line. But there should be some capable guards available at No. 49, and adding a third pick in Round 3 would help lessen the sting of the Rams having only one pick (No. 31) in the top 90.”
