32. Los Angeles Rams

51. . EDGE. Oregon. Jalen Jelks . 32. player

If there was one glaring weakness the Los Angeles Rams have, it’s their edge rush position. Their trading of Robert Quinn, though it seemed necessary at the time has left them with no definitive presence at that position. Thankfully they’ve made due with Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh but teams have already shown they can navigate around that problem as Minnesota and Seattle both put up big numbers on them. Jalen Jelks isn’t a big name in the draft community yet but he’ll get there. Players of his athletic caliber along with his exceptional size and length inevitably rise up boards. Wade Phillips is a master with pass rushers and will get him where he needs to go.
