Grab your 2021 Rams Draft Cap!

Get ‘em while they’re hot!

The 2021 Rams NFL Draft Caps are here!

This year’s concept is a bit similar to last year’s, but the designers chose to go with a more generic logo for every team instead of using their respective logos. The brim of the cap is blue, the logo border is gold, with the rest of the cap being black. There’s also a faint outline of the team logo behind the white words featuring the city’s name.

You can go ahead and purchase your cap here, as well as pick up...

The remaining free agents along the defensive line

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

LA might not be finished looking for defensive line help

The LA Rams were unable to retain defensive end Morgan Fox this offseason, seeing him turn his career season into a two-year, $8.1 million contract with the Carolina Panthers. The Rams also traded Michael Brockers to the Detroit Lions to save cap space, but no corresponding moves have been made along the defensive line.

There also probably won’t be a rush to do so either given how cheap veteran help...

The have themselves a pair of notable wide receivers and a starting tight end who sits among the best at his position. But how about adding a player that could potentially play either spot?

Enter Central Florida’s Jacob Harris, a 6’5, 220-pound pass-catcher that has recently met with the Rams, per The Draft Network’s Justin Melo.

Could Indiana safety Jamar Johnson be a sleeper fit with Rams?

Joshua A. Bickel/Columbus Dispatch via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Johnson could play nickel in the NFL

The LA Rams have drafted two safeties in each of the previous two years, but that won’t necessarily take Indiana’s Jamar Johnson off of their board. Even on day two. This would be in part because Johnson’s comp over at NFL.com by Lance Zierlein is former Rams safety John Johnson.

“He has a chance to be what everyone wants to have on their roster — a true nickel-safety hybrid.”...

Will Rams pick up a veteran running back?

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

There are many familiar names on the market

The largest contract signed by a running back this offseason has been the two-year, $11 million deal signed by Kenyan Drake with the Las Vegas Raiders. Chris Carson’s two-year, $10.425 million deal with the Seattle Seahawks was the only other multi-year running back contract this offseason to top $3 million per season.

Which high school prospects would dare continue to play running back with a future like that?...

Which positions should the Rams avoid drafting?

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

They can probably stay away from the punters

Had the LA Rams not traded for Matthew Stafford in January, then they might have been keen on scouting day two and day three quarterbacks in this draft. Players like Davis Mills, Kyle Trask, Kellen Mond, and Jamie Newman. The Rams might have also been content with Jared Goff and John Wolford at that point, but the addition of Stafford should solidify that Les Snead can’t use one of his draft picks this year on a...

The Rams tendered offensive lineman Coleman Shelton earlier this past month as an exclusive rights free agent. On Wednesday, the former undrafted player out of Washington officially put pen to paper and will be returning to the Rams for a shot at competing for the starting center gig now that Austin Blythe has moved on and signed with the Chiefs.

Creed Humphrey is Dane Brugler’s top-ranked center and he could fall to Rams

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

There is no real consensus on this year’s best center

As we’ve been emphasizing, there is no real consensus on the top-ranked center in the 2021 NFL Draft class, but it is also possible that the LA Rams will be able to grab whoever that is because of how the board could fall this year. The Rams are one of the only teams with an obvious need at center, there doesn’t appear to be a player at the position who has been considered a lock for the first round, and...

Rams pre-draft visits tracker

Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports

Which prospects have the Rams met with this year so far?

Teams can pretty much only meet with prospects in a virtual capacity this year and there aren’t the combine and pro day visits like we’d normally have. To be able to glean much from pre-draft visits is difficult every year but it seems especially tough in 2021. However, the following list of nine (so far) prospects that the LA Rams have met with could at least suggest that the team will be looking at...

In a recent segment on NFL Network, draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah predicted the first three draft picks for the Rams in this year’s draft.

With their first selection in the second round (No. 57), he has the Rams selecting former North Dakota State and LSU linebacker Jabril Cox. A two-time All-American at the FCS level before moving on to LSU in his final collegiate season, Cox is one of the more...

Rams 2-round mock: LA selects a big from Notre Dame

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Banks is one of four Notre Dame o-linemen who could be drafted

Notre Dame has had an NFL prospect resurgence over the last eight years or so and a large part of that is due to the offensive linemen that the Irish have produced recently. In fact, Notre Dame has had six first round picks since 2014, and four of them have been offensive linemen: Zack Martin in 2014, Ronnie Stanley in 2016, and Mike McGlinchey, Quenton Nelson in 2018.

That could continue with the...

Random Ramsdom: McShay tabs NC LB to Rams in latest mock

Your source for Rams and NFL news from around the web.

The Rams will likely go in two different directions with their first pick of this year’s draft: Offensive tackle to find an eventual replacement for Andrew Whitworth, or linebacker to help reinforce the defense’s weakest group.

In Todd McShay’s most-recent mock at ESPN, he has the Rams snagging North Carolina linebacker Chazz Surratt with the 57th-overall pick.

Pod-TST: “Status quo or Status update?” for all 16 AFC teams

A look at the predicted order of the four AFC divisions

We’ve seen what the Rams have gained (and lost) in 2021 and surely we must call it a “Status Update” for Sean McVay’s team. You may not believe that it is a status upgrade like I do, but surely Los Angeles is coming back with new looks on offense and defense next season.

What about the rest of the NFL? Which teams have gone through an update and which teams are maintaining their status quo from the...

New Rams gear for 2021! Matthew Stafford, Robert Woods, Aaron Donald shirts

‘Level Up’ with a Matthew Stafford shirt!

I don’t think any rational person disagrees with former Rams defensive lineman Michael Brockers saying that quarterback Matthew Stafford is a “level up” from Jared Goff. If they did disagree, then how do they explain the trade? I don’t recall anyone in the NFL attempting to “veto” such a ripoff deal like it’s your fantasy league.

Speaking of your fantasy league, people who do those probably also wear shirts to show support of their...

2021 QB picture gets a little clearer with Sam Darnold traded to Panthers

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Jets have traded quarterback Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers for a 2022 second round pick, a 2022 fourth round pick, and a 2021 sixth round pick. This one move could essentially clear up two quarterback jobs for next season that were previously up in the air:

The Panthers gave up a second round pick for Darnold, so one would think that they are going to pump the brakes on their hunt for a Teddy Bridgewater replacement/competition.

The Jets...
