Cleveland Rams player Bullet Hall was the MVP in 1939 after becoming the first player to complete 100 passes in a season.

Los Angeles Rams 2018 Draft Grade: C

The Rams had been doing a nice job of building through the draft, and then the 2018 off-season happened.  They mortgaged the future trading for talented knuckleheads like Marcus Peters and Aquib Talib and signing free agents Kong Suh.  This is typically a recipe for long term disaster.  In the draft they took C Brian Allen who should be a starter and OT project Joe Noteboom.  Their best pick was 5th round DE Ogbo Okonronkwo and 7th round DE Justin Lawler has some developmental upside.

Los Angeles Rams 2017 Draft Grade: B+

The Rams didn't have a first round pick (Jared Goff!), but did extremely well with what they had, nabbing value picks throughout the draft.  Second round tight end Gerald Everett has some Jimmy Graham/Julius Thomas to his game.  Third round WR Cooper Kupp and 4th rounder Josh Reynolds both have starter ability. S John Johnson will probably develop into a starter and late rounder DT Tanzel Smart and DE Ejuan Price should be productive situational players.

St. Louis Rams 2016 Draft Grade: B

We don't like giving away multiple high draft choices unless the player is a guaranteed star, and there are none of those.  We're not even sure Jared Goff is one of the three best tossers in this draft, but he's entering a choice situation with a great running game and a solid defense.  We expect Goff to take care of the ball and wouldn't be surprised to see the Rams have a winning record in 2016; however, we still don't like the trade.  The Rams did the most after the third round of any team.  They drafted talented knucklehead TE Tyler Higbee who has Pro Bowl on field traits but is a royal screwball.  In the later rounds they snared talented WRs Michael Thomas (the Southern Miss version) and Pharoh Cooper.  We are also fans of ILB Josh Forrest.

St. Louis Rams 2015 Draft Grade: B

The Rams recognized a weakness on the offensive line so they, unlike the Falcons, drafted accordingly.  They spent four picks on the offensive line and although we didn't necessarily like the players they took, they should get a few starters. If Todd Gurley gets healthy he could be the best player in the draft.  They didn't get any help on defense, but they didn't really need much help.

UDFA most likely to make the team: Zach Laskey- RB, Georgia Tech

St. Louis Rams 2014 Draft Grade: A+

The Rams generated publicity after drafting Michael Sam, but his draft kiss overshadowed what might be a historic draft for other reasons.  The Rams had two picks in the first 13 so they should have had a good draft, but they demolished the competition.  The Rams stole the best defensive prospect in the last decade in DT Aaron Donald with the 13th pick.  Their front seven went from great, to scary. They drafted our top rated offensive non-quarterback in OT Greg Robinson and his Auburn running mate Tre Mason, our top rated running back.  Second round S/CB Lamarcus Joyner isn't very big but his instincts are off the charts.  They drafted another intriguing safety prospect in 6'1", 220 pound thumper Maurice Alexander from Utah State.  4th round CB E.J. Gaines is a player we think has starter ability.

 

UDFA most likely to make the team: Marcus Roberson- CB, Florida
