3. Trade back in the second round
Again, it might not seem wise for the Los Angeles Rams to move further back in the 2020 NFL Draft if they do not have a first-round pick but if the right offer is on the table, it would absolutely be better for the team in the long run to take this approach.

Heck, the 2019 NFL Draft was the only draft in which the team had a first-round pick heading into draft day and they traded down into the second round to get more draft capital. This would essentially be the same principle.
It all depends on who is on the board and which teams are desperate for certain prospects. There are still going to be true difference-makers when the 52nd pick rolls around but there very well might not be any great picks for the Rams, as going with a position of need could be a stretch.
That will determine what the team gets for moving down in the draft but we could still make estimations. In our latest Mock Draft simulation, the Las Vegas Raiders offered us two third-round picks and a fifth-round pick for the 52nd overall pick.
This gave us four third-round picks to play with, three of which coming within seven picks of each other, as well as an extra late-round pick. If the Rams can get an additional third-round pick for moving down 10-20 spots then they should take it.
Sometimes, quantity is better quality and as long as the Los Angeles Rams make educated draft choices then the team could fill more holes with this approach, improving the team not only in 2020 but beyond.
