Round 4, pick 20: Julian Blackmon, S, Utah
The Los Angeles Rams had two more picks in the fourth round, one being their own and one being a compensatory pick, so we decided to combine the two into one slide.
With their original selection in the fourth round, the Los Angeles Rams select Julian Blackmon out of Utah. Veteran safety Eric Weddle is retiring after one year with the Rams and while Taylor Rapp is ready to replace him in the starting lineup, the Rams need to replace Weddle in the depth chart.
This would be the right place to select that depth safety and Blackmon would be a fitting selection. Blackmon has the size and speed of an NFL safety and as a former cornerback, can come in on nickel packages and even man up tight ends and running backs.
Blackmon is a little raw as he switched positions to safety in college, but as a depth safety, he will have time to develop those traits without burning the Rams.
Round 4, pick 34: Jack Driscoll, OL, Auburn
The Rams continue to bolster the offensive line depth with Jack Driscoll, who does not have the same potential as Bartch but can hold his own in the run-blocking department.
The biggest question mark about Driscoll is his strength, as while he is athletic, he does not have the pure strength that NFL teams are looking for out of a starting-caliber offensive lineman.
However, the Rams do not need Driscoll to start right away and if they can develop that strength with his athleticism and technique, Driscoll could be a starting offensive lineman at some point.
