The Rams have needs at tight end, cornerback, and edge rusher. All three are possibilities the Rams might address with its first pick in the second round. Tight ends Michael Mayer from Notre Dame or Dalton Kincaid from Utah could be nice options for the team.
Felix Anudike-Uzomah from Kansas State could be a nice edge rusher if available in the second round, while cornerback DJ Turner could be a solid addition to the secondary in Round 3 or Round 4.
