NFL Draft 2022: Best players available stay for Rams

Now that day one of the 2022 NFL Draft has passed, it’s time to figure out who will be on the board later tonight when the Los Angeles Rams are finally on time. Or will Les Snead put on his Green Shade visor and broker a deal?

There weren’t many surprises in the first round, the picks were evenly split between attack and defense. There were no real “range” picks, the only three that weren’t considered first-round consensus possibilities were Georgia linebacker Quay Walker, Tulsa and Tennessee Chattanooga tackle Tyler Smith, guard Cole Strange. Each of these three possessed stellar NFL traits, so proclaiming them a “reach” isn’t entirely accurate.

As the Rams’ first pick at No. 104 emerges, who are some of the players who could fall within their reach. Here is a list of candidates for my high council, numbers 51 to 103.

#57 Tackle Darrian Kinnard – Kentucky 6′ 5″ 322 lbs.

#58 Cornerback Coby Bryant – Cincinnati 6′ 1″ 193 lbs.

#59 Guard Jamaree Sayer – Georgia 6′ 3″ 321 lbs.
