Round 6, Pick 20: Jack Driscoll, OT, Auburn

For the third time in this mock draft, the LA Rams address the offensive line and pick up Auburn tackle, Jack Driscoll. However, unlike the other two offensive linemen already selected, Driscoll would not be expected to compete for a starting job.

Driscoll is a prospect that has a high ceiling if he can make the proper gains on an NFL team. He showed promising fundamentals with Auburn and is someone who has the skill set to succeed in the NFL.

Driscoll’s biggest disadvantage is his size and strength. If Driscoll takes full advantage of an NFL training staff and diet then he absolutely could be someone who becomes a quality starting tackle, or guard, in the NFL.

Until then, he is a depth option that would not be a terrible option in running schemes but would be exposed against good pass rushes.

Round 7, Pick 20: Sewo Olonilua, RB, TCU

I am not a big fan of the LA Rams drafting a running back in the 2020 NFL Draft, in fact, below you will see a link to an article with three reasons why I think the Rams won’t draft a running back in the 2020 NFL Draft.

However, after trading down and receiving two extra picks, drafting a running back in the seventh round if affordable but it is still is not a traditional running back. Instead, the Rams would be selecting Sewo Olonilua with the full intent of transitioning him to a fullback.

Olonilua absolutely has the size to be a fullback, standing at 6’3″ and 240 pounds, and is someone who could be extremely beneficial in short-yardage situations. Although the fullback is a bit of a lost art in today’s game, the success of the fullback position with the Kansas City Chiefs, San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens showcases how impactful the position can be.

Next. Why the Rams won't draft a running back. dark

Instead of having a third running back that won’t see much playing time anyway, the Rams could give someone such as Olonilua a roster spot, as even in the worst-case scenario, he could still carry the ball for the team.
