The Rams were active and bold to start the third and final day of the NFL draft Saturday, as they made two trades during the fourth round and selected receiver Josh Reynolds and linebacker Samson Ebukam.
The day started with a move down, as the Rams sent the No. 112 pick to Chicago for No. 117 and a sixth-round pick (No. 197). The Rams used that pick on Reynolds, a lanky deep threat who led the SEC with 1,039 receiving yards last season and had 12 touchdowns.
Not content to wait until the end of the round to pick again, the Rams made another trade and moved up to No. 125. They sent their fourth-round compensatory pick (No. 141) to the New York Jets, as well as the No. 197 pick they’d received from Chicago less than an hour earlier.
The Rams used No. 125 on Ebukam, who is considered a raw talent at linebacker and was a college teammate of receiver Cooper Kupp, one of the Rams’ third-round picks. Ekubam finished his college career with 24 sacks in 53 games.
The Rams still have two sixth-round picks (No. 189 and No. 206) and one seventh-round pick (No. 234) to close out the draft.
