<span style="text-decoration: underline;">The Los Angeles Rams Have Four Pressing Needs Entering NFL Draft</span>
Today’s the day. Thursday night marks the official kickoff to the 2018 NFL Draft. When it comes to the first round, general manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay won’t be making any selections, but will be watching intently.
But come Friday, the Draft really begins for the Rams.
And in anticipation of the third-round, the Ventura County Star’s Joe Curley is taking a look at four pressing needs the club will look to address this week. <span style="text-decoration: underline;">
1) Outside Linebacker
“Considering the Rams look to have moved on from both starters at the position from a year ago, edge rusher is the team’s most pressing need entering the draft.”
2) Inside Linebacker
“Although Mark Barron and Bryce Hager return, and the Rams have added former Kansas City linebacker Ramik Wilson, Phillips said earlier this month that the team is relying on the draft to fill holes at linebacker.”
3) Offensive Line
“The only starters the Rams have under contract beyond 2018 are 36-year-old tackle Andrew Whitworth and 32-year-old center John Sullivan, the two oldest players on the roster.
Snead could address that developing situation by using several of Saturday’s selections, perhaps one on each line position.”
4) Running Back
“The Rams could benefit from adding versatile running back, who could spell Todd Gurley, pass block and be a
weapon in the passing game.”
