    Which NFC West team landed the best 2017 NFL draft class?

    The 2017 NFL draft is in the books, and the NFC West spent all seven rounds reloading for this coming season.

Sadly, it oftentimes leads to disappointment, as the on-field results in the fall don’t match that of their stellar pad-less display from summer. And there are also those that show up out of nowhere and prove to be solid contributors, sometimes stars, for their respective teams. The Los Angeles Rams have had quite a bit of turnover this offseason, to include an entirely new coaching staff in 2017. Which player(s) do you think are likely to become pleasant surprises for the Rams in the upcoming year? Who Emerges as the Team’s Top Deep
