Los Angeles Rams:

Steelers get picks 57, 88, 141, and a 2022 second for pick 24

The other Los Angeles team is lacking a first-round pick altogether despite being in win-now mode. The Rams don’t have their first in thanks to trading for Jalen Ramsey last season. Add in the team trading for Matthew Stafford this offseason and the Rams are set up to win this season. The only issue is, their line has become a liability.

On the plus side, the Rams have built a relatively solid roster besides on their line. This means they could become the aggressor and try to get that last piece of their roster by trading a pair of day-two picks and a fourth-rounder as well as a future second-rounder for the right to move up for a lineman. The right prospect would have to be there granted, but if a guard capable option like Alijah Vera-Tucker is still on the board, the Rams could move up.

As for the Steelers, trading this far back would be a tough pill to swallow. Suddenly, their earliest pick would be their original second-rounder (pick 55) as the Rams pick at 57. That said, the team would also be gaining three valuable picks to use this draft to fill out their roster. Gaining a second-round pick for next year is solid as well. Realistically, the team could try and move up for a quarterback next season, so having that second-round pick provides additional flexibility.
