Rounds 5 & 6:
Fifth-round selection: Michael Hoomanawanui, TE, Illinois
Michael Hoomanawanui had a longer career than the other players that the Rams drafted ahead of him but he still did not have a big impact on the Rams. Hoomanawanui ended up playing until the 2017 season but spent only two years with the Rams.
In those two seasons, Hoomanawanui played a combined 16 games, started 11 of them and never pieced it together. He had 20 combined receptions for 229 yards and spent the next three seasons with the New England Patriots.
- Grade: D-
- Could have drafted: Kam Chancellor
Fifth-round selection: Hall Davis, DE, Louisiana
With the team’s second selection in the fifth round, they selected defensive end Hall Davis, who like many people that the Rams selected in the draft, ended up not having an impact on the team whatsoever.
Davis never even appeared with the Rams! After recording two sacks in three preseason games the Rams traded Davis to the Washington Redskins, who then released him. He appeared in three games in his entire career.
Sixth-round selection: Fendi Onobun, TE, Arizona
The Rams selected a second tight end in the draft and Fendi Onobun had an even smaller impact on the team than Hoomanawanui. He appeared in three games his rookie season, hauled in two receptions and was released during the preseason in his sophomore year.
- Grade: F
- Could have drafted: Greg Hardy
Sixth-round selection: Eugene Sims, DE, West Texas A&M
Finally, someone who actually had some sort of impact on the Los Angeles Rams for several seasons. Eugene Sims was with the team through the 2016 season but only had three career starts prior to 2015.
He did not do much in the first five years of his career but was decent in his final two. However, there is a massive miss with this selection, so you cannot help but ask what-if.
- Grade: D+
- Could have drafted: Antonio Brown
