The Rams Are Maintaining a Fun Draft Tradition

A year after winning the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams had their worst title defense in recent memory during the 2022 season, as key injuries and poor play resulted in a 5–12 finish.

The team has lost some key players, including linebacker Bobby Wagner and star cornerback Jalen Ramsey, and thus heads into an uncertain 2023 season in an NFC West division that is starting to look more competitive.

With the 2023 NFL Draft coming up, the Rams are continuing what has become an annual tradition for them – operating their draft business out of a luxury facility they call the “Draft House”.

The Rams won’t have a first-round pick this year, as they sent it to the Detroit Lions in the big trade last offseason that landed quarterback Matthew Stafford.

But Los Angeles will have 11 total picks this year, and their first pick this year at No. 36 could potentially be a solid contributor.

They need help on their offensive line, and with the departure of Wagner and Ramsey, they could also use some new blood on the defensive side of the football.

On the other hand, as long as they’re healthy, the Rams should still be competitive on offense, despite ranking 27th in points scored and last in total yards.

Star wide receiver Cooper Kupp should be recovered from the high ankle sprain that limited him to nine games last season, and they still have wideouts Van Jefferson and Cam Akers while Stafford recovers from a spinal fusion. wants to bounce back from.
