The mock drafts are done, the boards are set and teams are ready to begin their trek through the madness that is the NFL draft. The Los Angeles Rams have six total picks this year, including three in the top 103, though they don’t have a first-rounder.

But with the way their roster is constructed and the capital that they do have, they should be able to come out of the draft with a handful of players who will contribute in their rookie year.

Now that the pre-draft process has come to an end, this hub will give you everything you need to know about the draft for the Rams – from their pick order to the top 101 prospects to players they could target at each position of need.

The Rams have already talked to teams about trading down from the 57th overall pick, as they could attempt to stockpile picks beyond their six current selections. There will likely be teams looking to trade up to scoop up a player who's sliding, giving the Rams some potential partners. Using the trade value chart, we found eight trade-down scenarios for the Rams.

  1. Rams trade: No. 57 (330 points) Packers trade: Nos. 62, 135 and 214 (326.7 points)

  2. Rams trade: No. 57 (330 points) Chiefs trade: Nos. 63, 144 and 181 (327.4 points)

The NFL limited prospect meetings to virtual settings, forcing teams to talk to players only over video conference instead of hosting them for in-person visits. The Rams met with a number of players in the lead up to the draft, including several cornerbacks and wide receivers. For the complete list of prospects that met with the Rams, click here.

The Rams hold the 57th overall pick in the draft, which hasn't exactly returned much in terms of Pro Bowlers and NFL stars. Only two Pro Bowlers have been selected at No. 57 since 2000, while the Rams have held the pick twice – most recently in 2020 when they took Van Jefferson.
