The Rams rounded out the sixth round with three picks in fairly quick succession, selecting offensive lineman Jamil Demby, defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph, and outside linebacker Trevon Young. The three players make up the No.192, No. 195, and No. 205 overall picks in the sixth round.
L.A. was originally slated to pick at No. 194 and No. 197, but sent those picks to Atlanta and Washington respectively, in exchange for the No. 205 slot and two seventh-rounders.
Demby joins Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen as the three newest additions to the club’s offensive line room. Throughout the draft, general manager Les Snead made bringing in several promising, young linemen a priority — hoping to develop them under veteran players like Andrew Whitworth and John Sullivan.
Listed at 6-foot-5 and 319 pounds, the Maine product kicked off his final season as a CAA All-Conference selection and a third-team FCS All-American. Coming from a pass-heavy offense, scouts project he will develop well inside to guard. And after a strong performance in the Senior Bowl, many believe he has the skills necessary to excel as an eventual starter.
The franchise also added further depth on the defensive line through the addition of Joseph. The three-year starter from Rutgers played in all 12 games of his senior season and was named an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention. He showcased his durability and athleticism on the line, starting in 49 consecutive contests to end his career.

Joseph totaled 41 tackles, 4.5 for loss, 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble in 2017 to finish as the Homel Hazel Award recipient — given to the Rutgers’ football team’s most valuable player.
Young closed out the Rams’ sixth round selections at No. 205. After posting 8.5 sacks in 2015, the All-ACC talent suffered a fractured hip in Louisville’s bowl game, causing him to miss the entire 2016 season. But after returning for his senior season the following year, Young finished with 62 tackles, 12 for loss, 4.5 sacks and five pass breakups.
His 6-foot-4, 258 pound frame makes him a nice fit on the edge and if he remains healthy, Young should provide some needed depth to the Rams’ linebacker core.
