The Los Angeles Rams have not had a first-round pick since 2016, but when they do have a first-round pick, they often deliver.
The Los Angeles Rams have run their operations very aggressively in recent years and as a result, the team is entering its fourth-straight NFL Draft without a first-round pick. The team is also without a first-round pick in next year’s draft as well as a result of the Jalen Ramsey trade.
The Rams have been able to win in the short-term without any first rounds picks but a large portion of the teams’ success has to do with the great first-round selections that the Rams have made in the past.
Those great selections allowed the team to be aggressive and trade assets for talent as the team knew it already had its fundamental players from recent first-round picks.
Ranking the last six first-round picks will take us all the way back to 2013, as the Rams had two first-round picks in both 2013 and 2014.
6. Greg Robinson, 2014
Statistically, Greg Robinson could make a pretty good case for being ranked ahead of the person that is ranked fifth on this list. However, there was just so much disappointment that came with Robinson’s time with the Rams.
Robinson was the second-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and there were high hopes for him. Robinson appeared ready for a long career with the Los Angeles Rams full of Pro Bowls and All-Pro nods, and it just never was meant to be.
He was okay through three seasons and was traded to the Detroit Lions, where he posted his worst season. After one year with the Browns, Robinson signed with the Cleveland Browns and was just okay.
In February of 2020, Robinson was arrested for alleged possession of 157 pounds of marijuana.
