For the second-consecutive season, the Rams have traded back to select their first pick of the NFL Draft, selecting TCU’s Joseph Noteboom with the No. 89 overall pick. The Rams were originally slated to pick at No. 87, but sent that selection to the Raiders in exchange for the No. 89 and No. 217 picks.
Noteboom is a three-year starter who closed his college career with 40 consecutive starts in Fort Worth. The Honorable Mention All-Big 12 left tackle impressed many scouts with his solid Senior Bowl performance and had a great workout at the Combine — posting a 4.96-second 40-yard dash and 27 reps on the bench press.
The TCU product was the third-highest graded offensive tackle by www.nfl.com and will join an offensive line room that includes left tackle Andrew Whitworth and center John Sullivan. Noteboom will have the unique privilege of learning and developing under the two veteran linemen — who have a combined 22 years of NFL experience between them.
