Overview
 
Allen is an inside linebacker with good toughness and intangibles but lacks the speed and instincts teams look for in the middle. He plays with good short-area quickness and a willingness to stick his nose into oncoming traffic in order to leverage his gap and set his teammates up for success. With adequate athleticism and the potential to become a core special teamer, Allen could hear his name called in the later rounds of the draft.

Overview
 
Running back turned safety with eye-popping speed and explosion numbers to counter his limited amount of starts and production at Penn State. Scott is a plus athlete and fierce but erratic tackler whose recognition and technique vs. both the run and pass fall below NFL standards. He's a developmental prospect who will need to play with much greater consistency to make a roster and find the field, but he could make a name for himself as a special teams specialist in time.

Overview
 
Quarterback-turned-tight-end-turned-right-tackle who has maintained his light feet but is missing functional strength and body control to hold his ground against NFL power. Edwards isn't the technician we've come to expect from the Wisconsin program and he'll need additional technique work to help make up for some of his physical deficiencies. He's still a pup as an offensive lineman and he should improve with more experience and weight room work, but it's tough to project him behind average backup to low-end starter at this point.

Overview
 
Stubby, high-motor interior defender whose tape can fluctuate from play to play. Gaines is a short-arm defender with average hand usage but can time up the snap often enough to create early advantages from time to time. He plays with a strong anchor in general, but his proclivity for ending up on the ground will not endear him to defensive line coaches. His effort and strength make him a Day 3 rotational 4-3 nose.

Overview
 
Three-year starter with tackle experience on both sides who plays with excellent core strength, good hand placement and a noticeable nasty streak. Evans is below average as an athlete but makes up for it with upper-body power and solid technique. Despite being under 6-foot-5, his arm length (34 3/4 inches) might convince a team to try him at right tackle before any moves inside. He might be scheme-dependent, but strength and toughness give him a shot at becoming a good backup with eventual starter potential.

Overview
 
Death, taxes and David Long sitting under a receiver's chin waiting to jam and bully the release - all three are inevitable. He lacks height, length and makeup burst, but it is hard to find tape where those areas came back to haunt him very often. He's patient from press, stays connected to routes underneath, but may have to adjust to off-man and prove he can withstand vertical challenges against taller targets. He's not as long, loose or fast as teams like, but he's a consistent cover man with the talent to find reps early in his career.

Overview
 
He checks in slightly undersized, doesn't have great vision and runs with a narrow base that makes him easier to tackle, but so far, those concerns haven't slowed him one bit. Big-play production is impossible to ignore, but his running style makes him best-suited to a complementary slasher role in a spread-based attack. In basketball, Henderson would be the explosive sixth man with the ability to swing certain games in your favor if he catches fire. On the ground or out of the backfield, Henderson can catch fire.

Overview
 
Versatile three-year starter who combines tenacity with football intelligence to play at a consistently high level. Rapp isn't big, but he's well-built and durability hasn't been a concern despite his physical nature as a striker. He played all over the field this year and might be best-suited in a mix between down safety and two-high looks with the ability to cover tight ends. His coverage talent is average, but his run support effort and open-field tackling are clearly defined strengths that make him a relatively safe selection.

Come si paventava prima dell'inizio del draft. i Los Angeles Rams hanno scambiato la loro prima scelta, numero 31 assoluta, cpon gli Atlanta Falcons, per scendere di qualche posizione ed acquisire una ulteriore scelta al terzo giro, che dà così ai californiani quattro scelte nelle prime 100 anzichè solo tre.
Ai Falcons vanno la 31esima scelta e la 203esima dei Rams, mentre a Los Angeles vanno incambio le scelte numero 45 e 79.
A questo punto del tabellone, con i migliori prospetti già andati, Les Snead e Sean McVay hanno ipotizzato di riuscire comunque ad avere a disposizione qualche giocatore interessante anche quattordici giri più in giù, ma la prospettiva di aggiungere una ulteriore scelta allo spot 79 è evidentemente più allettante che tenersi la 203esima e scegliere alla 31esima un giocatore che, probabilmente, sarà disponibile anche più tardi.
Vedremo domani, quindi, come si svolgerà il draft per i Rams, senza escludere la possibilità di un'altra trade down, scenario al quale Snead e McVay ci hanno già abituato nelle passate stagioni.

Finalmente ci siamo! Abbiamo le date di tutte le partite della stagione 2019. In realtà abbiamo le date precise di 15 delle 16 partite, perchè la sfida della penultima giornata con i San Francisco 49ers non ha ancora una collocazione certa tra il 21 ed il 22 dicembre, perchè è una delle partite sottoposte alla cosiddetta "flexible schedule", la procedura che permette alla NFL di cambiare la calendarizzazione di alcune partite tra la week 11 e la week 17 in base ad esigenze televisive ed opportunità in base all'importanza dellìincontro.
La "rivincita dell'interferenza" con i New Orleans Saints sarà subito alla seconda settimana. I Saints avranno certamente il dente avvelenato e sarà una bella partita, ma noi metteremmo subito la firma per un epilogo come lo scorso anno: sconfitta in stagione e Rams al Super Bowl.
Uno solo il Monday Night, quello di week 12 il 25 novembre contro i Baltimore Ravens, come uno solo sarà il Thursday Night, a Seattle il 3 ottobre, alla terza giornata. Per contro i Rams saranno di scena al Sunday Night per ben tre volte: in week 3 a Cleveland il 22 settembre, in week 11 con i Chicago Bears il 17 novembre ed in week 14 contro i Seahawks l'8 dicembre.
