The Los Angeles Rams have been one of the most active teams in the NFL this offseason, yet the new league year hasn’t even begun. By striking deals involving Marcus Peters and Robert Quinn, the Rams have changed the look of their upcoming draft haul in a matter of a week.
Los Angeles is packaging Quinn and a sixth-round pick for a fourth- and sixth-round pick from Miami, essentially giving the Rams one of the two picks they gave up to get Peters.
With all the shuffling that’s gone on, let’s take a look at an updated list of the team’s selections heading into April’s draft. It’s unclear exactly which of Miami’s two fourth-round picks the Rams will receive. The same goes for the Chiefs’ sixth-rounder heading to Los Angeles, so this is a tentative list.
- Round 1 (No. 23)
- Round 3 (No. 87)
- Round 4 (No. 111 or 130)
- Round 5 (No. 160)
- Round 6 (No. 183)
- Rams will trade one of these selections to Miami:
- Round 6 (No. 194, via Detroit)
- Round 6 (No. 195, via Buffalo)
- Round 6 (No. 196 or 209, via Kansas City)
- Round 6 (No. 198)
So in total, the Rams will have eight picks in 2018, only being without a second-rounder (traded in Sammy Watkins deal) and a seventh-rounder (traded in Derek Carrier deal).
The Rams may not be done dealing, either. Mark Barron is another player who could be on the move, especially given his $10 million and lack of ideal fit in Wade Phillips’ defense.
