With some of its newcomers like WR Puka Nacua setting records and propelling the Rams to the postseason, they’ll have plenty of upcoming selections to find more.

“F them picks” no more; let’s examine a full list of the Rams’ 2024 NFL Draft picks.

How Many Picks Do the Rams Have in 2024?

The Rams are tied with the Arizona Cardinals, the Buffalo Bills, and the Green Bay Packers for the most picks in the 2024 NFL Draft with 11. The Rams own their original picks in Rounds 1-3, 5, and 6.

Los Angeles traded its original 2024 fourth-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for OL Kevin Dotson, a 2024 fifth-round pick (No. 155), and a 2025 sixth-round pick. The Rams also traded LB Kenny Young and its original 2024 seventh-round pick to the Denver Broncos for a 2024 sixth-round pick.

The Rams maxed out on compensatory picks, receiving four from the NFL, plus another pick awarded in the third round as a Resolution JC-2A selection for coach Raheem Morris leaving for the Atlanta Falcons. In 2020, the NFL began handing out compensatory draft picks to teams that lost a minority coach or executive (general manager, assistant GM, etc.) to another team.

The other four picks were for the departures of compensatory free agents QB Baker Mayfield, K Matt Gay, DT A’Shawn Robinson, and DB Nick Scott. The NFL awards up to four compensatory picks for net losses in free agency based on departing players’ average salaries, playing time, and postseason honors compared to incoming signings.

Who Did the Rams Draft in 2023?

Los Angeles didn’t need a first-round pick to walk away with a robust 14-man class in the 2023 NFL Draft, tying an NFL record for the most selected by one team.

At pick No. 36 in the second round, the Rams grabbed TCU guard Steve Avila, who started all 17 games at left guard. With two picks in the third round, the Rams boosted their defense with Tennessee EDGE Byron Young (pick No. 77) and Wake Forest defensive tackle Kobie Turner (pick No. 89). Young had eight sacks in 16 starts as a rookie, while Turner had nine sacks in nine starts.

The Rams used one pick in the fourth round (pick No. 128) on Georgia QB Stetson Bennett, who didn’t play, before making four picks in the fifth round: Appalachian State LB Nick Hampton (pick No. 161), Georgia OT Warren McClendon Jr. (pick No. 174), Clemson TE Davis Allen (pick No. 175), and BYU WR Puka Nacua (pick No. 177).

Hampton, McClendon, and Allen played sparingly as rookies, with Hampton recording four tackles and Allen making 10 catches for 95 yards and a score. The crown jewel of the Rams’ class was Nacua, who caught the most passes (114) and had the most yards (1,667) ever by a rookie, adding seven touchdowns and earning 2023 second-team All-Pro honors.

With three picks in each of the last two rounds, the Rams used its sixth-round picks on TCU cornerback Tre Tomlinson (pick No. 182), Nebraska EDGE Ochaun Mathis (pick No. 189), and Ole Miss RB Zach Evans (pick No. 215). None of the three earned much playing time in their rookie years, spending most of their time on special teams.

Wingate punter Ethan Evans (pick No. 223), Oklahoma State safety Jason Taylor II (pick No. 234), and Toledo defensive end Desjuan Johnson (pick No. 259) rounded out the Rams’ 2023 NFL Draft. Evans finished in the top 10 in the NFL in average yards per punt. Taylor and Johnson did not play much as rookies, spending time on special teams, with Johnson registering two sacks.
