The Rams further boosted their offensive line on Saturday morning, adding Michigan State center Brian Allen as the No. 111 overall pick in the fourth round. Los Angeles received the pick from the Dolphins, as part of the trade for middle linebacker Alec Ogletree.
The Michigan State product is a four-year letter winner who played in 51 career games, finishing with 28 consecutive starts. As a team captain in 2017, Allen earned second-team All-Big Ten accolades and finished the season as a the highest rated center in the Big 10 and No. 5 in the FBS.
The versatile lineman also has experience at both left and right guard. Throughout the draft process, many scouts praised his toughness and strength on the line. He is known for his power an durability and should develop well under veteran center John Sullivan and offensive line coach Aaron Kromer.
Allen joins left tackle Joseph Noteboom — the Rams No. 89 overall pick — as the newest additions to the team's offensive line room.
