The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a huge Super Bowl win and have maintained a dominant roster through the offseason. They don’t have that great of draft capital, but the team is stacked with star talent so it doesn’t matter. We go over what the Rams might do with our very own 2022 NFL Mock Draft.
LA has done a great job finding late-round gems and that trend should continue. The Rams don’t have a pick until the third round, but they have a chance to acquire legitimate depth on the offensive line. If the front office can do that, then this offseason will count as a win for Los Angeles.
With that said, here is our full Los Angeles Rams 2022 NFL Mock Draft.
Rams 2022 NFL Mock Draft
Round 3 – 104th Pick Overall: Dohnovan West (C)
The Rams need help within the interior offensive line and can snag a solid prospect in the third round. Dohnovan West is one of the best prospect centers and would be a great fit for LA. West likely needs some time to develop, but he has the talent to be a legitimate starter for Los Angeles one day.
Round 4 – 142nd Pick Overall: Lecitus Smith (G)
LA might as well go all-in on acquiring young offensive lineman as that is one of the only areas of concern. Lecitus Smith is a prospect that could be a strong rotational player right away. The Rams need help in the trenches and Smith can provide just that. If he’s available to them in the fourth round, look for Los Angeles to pull the trigger.
Round 5 – 175th Pick Overall: Cordale Flott (CB)
It wouldn’t hurt to add some depth to the cornerback room, as the group is a bit weak outside of the starters. Cordale Flott would be a solid special teams contributor right away. However, playing behind Jalen Ramsey could expedite Flott’s development. The Rams would be the best landing spot for the rookie cornerback.
Round 6 – 211th Pick Overall: Luke Wattenberg (C)
Luke Wattenberg is capable of playing center or guard, which makes him the perfect late-round draft pick for the Rams. He definitely needs time to develop and could be on the practice squad to start his career. Regardless, Wattenberg would bring in some strong competition through training camp and could surprise the coaching staff in the summer.

Round 6 – 212th Pick Overall: Josh Rivas (G)
Another prospect guard may fall to the Rams in the seventh round. Josh Rivas is similar to Luke Wattenberg, in that he needs time to develop. Even so, LA would be a great landing spot for the young guard, as he would receive legitimate work to compete for a role on the team right away.
Round 6 – 218th Pick Overall: Brad Hawkins (S)
Brad Hawkins could become a vital rotational player in the league one day, but he’s likely going to need time to adjust to the professional level. Regardless, the young safety could earn a spot on special teams and add some athleticism on kickoff.
Round 7 – 238th Pick Overall: Jason Poe (G)
Jason Poe might be a big-time sleeper pick this year and would be a solid acquisition for the Rams. Bringing him into the mix with several other young offensive lineman and Poe might become the bright spot within the trenches. LA is searching for late-round gems and Jason Poe might just be that dude.
Round 7 253rd Pick Overall: Decobie Durant (CB)
It’s a long shot for Decobie Durant to become a starting cornerback in the NFL, but he can be a legitimate contributor on special teams. Durant has the athleticism and the speed necessary to get down the field and make a play, which is exactly what this team needs from special teams.
