The Los Angeles Rams fell victim to the mindset of being overly confident in the offensive line last offseason. Instead of re-signing Rodger Saffold, the Rams believed that Joseph Noteboom could perform up to standards at left guard.
While Noteboom played miserably and dealt with injuries, Saffold was flourishing with the Tennessee Titans. Now, just a year later, the Rams need to find Saffold’s replacement at left guard.
Besides officially replacing Saffold, Los Angeles also needs to begin looking for the eventual replacement for Andrew Whitworth. Whitworth is an impending free agent, but it appears that he and the Rams will work out a deal this offseason.
Despite not having a first-round pick, Los Angeles will have quite a few opportunities to address the offensive line in the 2020 NFL Draft — beginning with the 52nd overall pick. In light of that, here are three offensive line options for the Rams with the No. 52 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
