The NFL Draft is exactly one week away. The Los Angeles are finalizing their big board and making their final adjustments for when they are on the clock next Friday. NFL teams typically have a list of 125-200 players that they would consider selecting heading into the draft. With that said, I have put together a list of 150 players that the Rams could draft next week. Players highlighted in bold are players that I believe are most likely to be in high consideration for the Rams. This is not a ranking. This is simply a list of who the Rams could potentially be targeting. The Rams typically keep things close to the vest, so this list is a complete guess.

57th Overall

1. EDEG Gregory Rousseau, Penn State
2. CB Gregory Newsome, Northwestern
3. C Landon Dickerson, Alabama
4. OT Dillon Radunz, North Dakota State
5. OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame
6. WR Dyami Brown, UNC
7. EDGE Joe Tryon, Washington
8. EDGE Jayson Oweh, Penn State
9. LB Cameron McGrone, Michigan
10. S Javon Holland, Oregon
11. LB Jabril Cox, LSU
12. iOL Wyatt Davis, Ohio State
13. EDGE Joseph Ossai, Texas
14. iOL Creed Humphrey, Oklahoma
15. OT Samuel Cosmi, Texas
16. CB Asante Samuel Jr., Florida State
17. CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse
18. S Richie Grant, UCF
19. LB Pete Werner, Ohio State
20. LB Jamin Davis, Kentucky
21. iOL Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin Whitewater
22. OT Alex Leatherwood, Alabama
23. S Jamar Johnson, Indiana
24. DL Levi Onwuzurike, Washington
25. OT Jalen Mayfield, Michigan

As the first round turns into the second round, a lot of these players will most likely be gone. However, a list of 25 is a good start. Players like Rousseau, Newsome, and Humphrey most likely won’t make it to 57, but if teams reach on quarterbacks or take need over best player available, it could lead some players dropping. We also don’t know how some teams view certain players. A team could select someone most see as fourth round pick in the first round. It happens almost every year.

At this spot, the Rams will most likely put a priority on cornerback or interior offensive line. If Asante Samuel Jr. is there, I would be shocked if he wasn’t the pick. The same can be said about Melifonwu who has the length that the Rams look for in their cornerbacks. Linebacker will be in consideration, but they will likely address that position later in the draft.

88th Overall

26. WR Nico Collins, Michigan
27. DL Daviyon Nixon, Iowa
28. WR D’Wayne Eskridge, Western Michigan
29. EDGE Janarus Robinson, Florida State
30. iOL Josh Myers, Ohio State
31. EDGE Quincy Roche, Miami
32. EDGE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma
33. DL Jay Tufele, USC
34. OT Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa
35. CB Trill Williams, Syracuse
36. CB Elijah Molden, Washington
37. OT Brady Christensen, BYU
38. EDGE Jordan Smith, UAB
39. S Talanoa Hufanga, USC
40. LB Dylan Moses

At 88th overall, the Rams are going to hope that a couple of players that they may have been targeting at 57, fall to 88. This seems like a small list of just 15 players, but the Rams have another pick at 103 and then don’t pick again until 141.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Rams go edge or tackle at this spot. However, despite adding DeSean Jackson in free agency, if D’Wayne Eskridge is there at 88, it would be hard for someone like McVay to allow Snead to draft someone else.

103rd Overall

41. iOL Ben Cleveland, Georgia
42. CB Israel Mukuamu, South Carolina
43. WR Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Iowa
44. EDGE Adetokunbo Ogundeji, Notre Dame
45. iOL Kendrick Green, Illinois
46. EDGE Patrick Johnson, Tulane
47. S Joshua Bledsoe, Missouri
48. WR TuTu Atwell, Louisville
49. EDGE Elerson Smith, Northern Iowa
50. WR Simi Fehoko, Stanford
51. CB Paulson Adebo, Stanford
52. LB Chazz Surratt, UNC
53. LB Derrick Barnes, Purdue 
54. OT James Hudson, Cincinnati
55. LB Tony Fields II, West Virgina
56. iOL Drew Dalman, Stanford
57. CB Ambry Thomas, Michigan
58. EDGE Dayo Odeyingbo, Vanderbilt
59. DL Osa Odighizuwa, UCLA
60. S Shaun Wade, Ohio State

This could be a prime spot for the Rams trade back in. After selecting at 88, this is only 15 picks later and they don’t select again until 141. This would also be a prime spot for the Rams to take a linebacker.

Pick 103 is going to be a sort of turning point for the Rams in the draft. There’s a good chance that good players are still available at 57 and even 88. However, at 103, while there will be plenty of good players available, how they manage the draft from this point forward will determine the overall success of their draft class.

141st Overall

61. WR Demetric Felton, UCLA
62. WR Anthony Schwartz, Auburn
63. OT Jaylon Moore, Western Michigan
64. LB Garrett Wallow, TCU
65. iOL Drake Jackson, Kentucky
66. S Divine Deablo, Virginia Tech
67. LB Charles Snowden, Virginia
68. WR Dazz Newsome, UNC
69. iOL David Moore, Grambling
70. iOL Michael Meet, Penn State
71. WR Whop Taylor, Indiana
72. EDGE Shaka Toney, Penn State
73. OT Cole Van Lanen, Wisconsin
74. LB Amen Ogbongbemiga, Oklahoma State
75. CB Keith Taylor, Washington
76. EDGE Chauncey Golston, Iowa
77. CB Camryn Bynum, Cal
78. CB Tre Brown, Oklahoma
79. S Jacoby Steven, LSU
80. CB Kary Vincent Jr. LSU
81. OT Kayode Awosika, Buffalo
82. S Aashari Crosswell, Arizona State
83. EDGE Joshua Kaindoh, Florida State
84. WR Marquez Stevenson, Louisville

This is another prime spot for the Rams to trade down as they don’t pick again for another 68 picks. If the Rams miss out on interior offensive line early in the draft, they should still be able to find capable developmental starters at this spot. They’ll also be able to find explosive playmakers like Felton, Schwartz, and Taylor at this spot.

209th and 252nd Overall

84. DL Khyiris Tonga, BYU
85. CB Shemar Jean-Charles, App. St.
86. LB Justin Hilliard, Ohio State
87. OT Dan Moore, Texas A&M
89. CB Olaijah Griffin, USC
90. TE Briley Moore, Kansas State
91. LB Erroll Thompson, Mississippi St. 
92. CB Avery Williams, Boise St.
93. LB Isaiah McDuffie, Boston College
94. WR Jacob Harris, UCF
95. TE Kylen Granson, SMU
97. RB Larry Rountree III, Missouri
98. CB Deommodore Lenoir, Oregon
99. EDGE Malcolm Koonce, Buffalo
100. LB KJ Britt, Auburn
101. RB Javian Hawkins, Louisville
102. DL Mustafa Johnson, Colorado
103. TE Noah Gray, Duke
104. LB Buddy Johnson, Texas A&M
105. RB Raheem Boyd, Arkansas
106. S Christian Uphoff, Illinois State
107. S Paris Ford, Pitt
108. CB Bryan Mills, NC Central
109. RB Gerrid Doaks, Cincinnati
110. TE John Bates, Boise State
111. LB Grant Stuard, Houston
112. LB Ernest Jones, South Carolina
113. CB Nahshon Wright, Oregon State
114. OT Foster Sarrell, Stanford
115. OT Will Sherman, Colorado
116. DL Darius Stills, West Virginia
117. LB Paddy Fisher, Northwestern
118. WR Dez Fitzpatrick, Louisville
119. WR Sage Surratt, Wake Forest
120. CB Tay Gowan, UCF
121. CB Thomas Graham Jr. Oregon
122. S Darren Hall, San Diego State
123. WR Dillon Stoner, Oklahoma State
124. S Lamont Wade, Penn State
125. iOL Ryan McCollum, Texas A&M

At picks 209 and 252 the Rams are essentially calling dibs on priority undrafted free agents. These are guys like will essentially compete for a roster spot in camp and be able to provide value on special teams.
