3 edge rusher options for the Rams at No. 52 in the NFL Draft

Bradlee Anae

Last but not least, Bradlee Anae out of Utah is a player that the Rams should have their eyes on. The Utah defense went from being the 20th ranked in the nation in 2018, to the third-ranked defense in 2019.

Without a doubt, Anae’s presence off of the edge was a huge reason for that. After collecting a total of 14.5 sacks in his sophomore and junior seasons, Anae saved his best season for last in 2019.

The Hawaii native finished his collegiate career with a bang, notching 13 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. Similar to Uche, there’s a legitimate possibility that Anae is still on the board when the Rams are picking at No. 84.

Over the course of his time at Utah, Anae never lacked effort and showed an impressive burst off of the edge. Still, there are areas of his game that need to be cleaned up at the next level. But Los Angeles would be getting a high-motor player that could be much-needed if Fowler departs this offseason.
