Draft Grade: Tougher and Cheaper
The Rams went to the Superbowl, but ran into two realizations once the game was over: they were soft in the middle, and they were going to have some salary issues very soon.
You could throw in that they really need to give their star RB a break with carries as well, but that remains to be seen. In this draft, they added a beast of a DT in the fourth round, that could end up being one of their best acquisitions of the offseason.
The Rams also added two offensive tackles, and a corner… these picks are important because they are getting expensive and old at these positions and need to address them now with young prospects.
Darrell Henderson was the best pass catching RB in the draft, and is a big play weapon. He could act as a sort of inning-eater for their star RB, and provide some huge plays in the meantime.
