The Rams let the contract of John Sullivan expire. They also have an older tackle in Andrew Whitworth. Thus making offensive line a big priority in 2019. With the way the draft – or at least smoke – seems to be flowing, there could be one available at 31.
Garrett Bradbury out of NC State is an ideal player for the Los Angeles Rams. He can play both guard and center. With losing Sullivan, Bradbury could be a day one signal caller along the offensive line.
The Rams are not re-signing Ndamukong Suh. There really was not much behind him either. Therefore, the Los Angeles Rams will need to find themselves a starting defensive lineman.
One player that may be available late in the first is Christian Wilkins. He is a 6’3” 315lb mountain of a man. He played his college ball for the National Champion, Clemson Tigers. His size allows him to swallow up multiple offensive linemen. This opens up others along the line and linebackers. Wilkins is also an excellent gap filler.

Now before you go thinking I am crazy, hear me out. Yes, the Rams have Todd Gurley. In addition, they matched a restricted free agent contract of Malcolm Brown. However, finding some more depth at this position will only help Sean McVay’s offense.
Miles Sanders out of Penn State is a name worth mentioning. He is a physical one-cut runner who also possesses a great pair of hands. Obtaining a back that can work in the passing game will allow the Los Angeles Rams to not have to play Gurley on all three downs. Bryce Love (Stanford) and Justice Hill (Oklahoma State) are also players that I like on day two or three.
The defending NFC West Champs are not in desperate need for a lot. Nonetheless, depth is always a good thing. Keying on these positions will do just that.
