Los Angeles Rams Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Los Angeles Rams Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Los Angeles Rams from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
Draft Tek (1/17)
57. Hamsah Nasirildeen, S, Florida State
This pick is largely dependent on if John Johnson is brought back or if the Rams allow him to test Free Agency. If Johnson does not return to the team, that leaves a big hole in the Safety spot. Florida State's Hamsah Nasirildeen could be one of the better hidden gems of the 2021 class. At 6'4 and 220 pounds, he is a big-bodied thumper that has the potential to be a game-changer. He missed most of the 2020 season due to an ACL tear he suffered in late 2019. He apparently wasn't fully recuperated and only appeared in two games for the Seminoles this past season. He totaled over 100 tackles in 2019 before tearing his ACL.
If Nasirildeen is able to get back to his level of play prior to the injury, he can be a great grab in the second round. Rookie Jordan Fuller has worked out so far and should take a big step in his second season. While the Rams are currently still competing in the playoffs, any front-office moves regarding extensions won't be known.
Walter Football - Charlie Campbell (1/15)
57. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State
The Rams could use more interior offensive line talent. The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Davis has good size to him and was a tough run blocker for the Buckeyes in 2019. He is strong at the point of attack and is a bull in the ground game. For the NFL, he will need to improve his ability to take on speed rushers. Davis is stout to anchor against bull rushes, but he needs to improve his pass protection. He gave up a couple of sacks in 2020.
San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)
57. Patrick Jones II, EDGE, Pittsburgh
Leonard Floyd has finally fulfilled his potential, but he also only signed a one-year deal. Jones is an athletic pass rusher who had 17.5 sacks and 24 tackles for loss his final two seasons. He's also a solid run defender.
Walter Football (1/13)
57. Liam Eichenberg, OT, Notre Dame
There's a chance Andrew Whitworth will retire after the 2020 season. That would make the Rams' already-putrid offensive line even worse. Liam Eichenberg took over at left tackle in the wake of Mike McGlinchey's departure to the NFL.
Pro Football Network - Cummings (1/10)
57. Jabril Cox, LB, LSU
The Rams rode a top-tier defense to the playoffs in 2020. Why not bolster that unit even more? One thing they can add is consistent linebacker play. Jabril Cox might not provide the consistency right away, but he's a big, rangy second-level player who proved himself after making the leap from the FCS to the SEC. His athletic profile lends tremendous upside and versatility, and for the Rams' defense, he could be a catalyst that takes them to even greater heights.
