LA Rams Top Draft Needs In 2017

The Los Angeles Ram did not have the best season. They have a lot of work cut out for them during the offseason. The coaching staff has a lot to do to make this team strong for the 2017 season. There are some needs that the Rams have to make their team strong for the next season. With the upcoming draft the team really needs to watch their picks.

Offensive Line

The offensive line had trouble blocking the previous year. Rodger Saffold was pretty good in his position but the rest of the team needs some help. Greg Robinson did not have a good season and neither did Rob Havenstein. Jared Goff is young but he is going to be in the position of quarterback so there are high hopes for him. The team does need some new players upfront to run the ball and score some touchdowns.

Wide Receivers

This is where the Rams need a lot of help. There are some contracts that are about to expire including the contracts of Kenny Britt and Brian Quick. While Tavon Austin is still on the team he has not done a whole lot to help them out. The team needs to find ways to improve so they can score some points. They are paying big bucks for Austin and need to find ways to get him to play up to his potential.

Defensive Backs

This is another area where the need needs to step up their game. They have let their opponents score on them and this has been a real problem. Trumaine Johnson is a free agent and he may or may not go to another team. J. McDonald’s contract is also going to be up so he may move on as well. These men are not bad and they more than likely are looking to make some more money. If the team is able to keep both of these players they need some extra help to stop other teams from scoring on them.

Defensive Ends

Robert Quinn has some serious health issues in which he needed to get surgery for. It has yet to be determined how this will affect his performance. Quinton Coples did not have the best season but there is potential. This is one area that the Rams may want to improve and see if they can get some new players.

Defensive Tackle

Michael Brockers is another player with a contract that is about to be up. The Rams may not be able to afford to keep him on their team. If he does leave they need to find another player to fill this position. There are some free agents out there that may work out. If not there is always the draft to pick up some new players for this position.

These are just some of the needs that the Rams have with the upcoming draft. If the Rams can make these changes and gain some new talent than they can have a great team for the 2017 NFL season.
