With the close of the 2018 NFL Draft, 11 college prospects can now call themselves Los Angeles Rams.

After a draft haul that saw the franchise make moves to acquire 10 selections in Day 3 alone, the Rams were able to replenish depth at multiple positions — bringing in several new, dynamic playmakers.

And now that the big event has come and past, therams.com will be taking a look at each member of the club’s 2018 Draft Class.


The Rams made offensive tackle Joseph Noteboom their first 2018 selection at No. 89 overall. The versatile lineman out of TCU comes to L.A. with the unique opportunity to shadow one of the league’s best in Andrew Whitworth.

With 40 consecutive starts over the last three seasons — and 53 appearances in 53 possible games — Noteboom’s college career is the epitome of consistency. The All-Big 12 honorable mention tackle is excited to bring that work ethic and durability to Los Angeles, calling his position on the Rams roster a perfect scenario.  

Here is Noteboom in his own words: 

On how it felt to be drafted by the Rams:

“It’s fantastic. Just knowing all the pieces they’ve added and what a great, young team it is. I think it’s the perfect spot. So amazing.”

On what he brings to the team:

“I think they have an explosive offense, which we had kind of at TCU. Just athleticism, coachability — [I’ll] do whatever they want me to do. Just help the offense out and try to score many points, which they did last year, so same thing.”

On what he knew about Whitworth and what he can learn from the veteran lineman:

“I know a lot about Whitworth, watched a lot of him. I’m excited. I’m going to take in everything he’s telling me. It’s perfect — I’ll learn from a Pro Bowler, [a] veteran.”
