The 2024 NFL Draft was a fantastic time for the LA Rams as they added 10 exciting rookies on their hunt to chase a Super Bowl next season. Names like Jared Verse, Braden Fiske, and Blake Corum are not only expected to help the Rams in the immediate future but for years to come based on their potential.

As the NFL offseason continues, the Rams might not be done tinkering with the roster. Training camp is right around the corner and it wouldn't be shocking if general manager Les Snead opts to trim some of the fat to give head coach Sean McVay the best possible roster to work with.

With that in mind, here are three Rams who might find themselves on the trade block following the NFL Draft.

1. Ronnie Rivers, RB

In a 2023 campaign where Kyren Williams didn't have a clear backup, the Rams hoped that Ronnie Rivers could rise to the occasion. The former Fresno State rusher is no stranger to adversity, having already forced himself onto three NFL rosters despite going unselected at the 2022 draft.

Although Rivers saw the most action of his career last season, he didn't do much to inspire confidence regarding his future. Suiting up in nine games with one start, the 25-year-old running back turned 32 carries into 129 yards while hauling in all five of his targets for another 22 yards, failing to score a touchdown the entire year. In fact, he only generated four first downs on 37 total touches.

Rivers now faces an uphill battle if he hopes to remain a Ram. Williams is set to lead the backfield again while Zach Evans will be back along with the debuting rookie Corum and veteran rusher Boston Scott. Considering how Corum was college football's best RB in the last two seasons and Scott has more experience than his counterparts, Rivers and Evans are likely the odd men out.

Having said that, Rivers is only 25 years old, so I wouldn't be surprised if another team believes that he's capable of more. Even if it's only for a Day 3 selection or a depth player swap, I think there are a few scenarios that would lead to Rivers being moved.
