The Rams had nine picks in this weekend’s draft, but three of them were seventh-rounders and only one was in the first 100 picks. As such, their undrafted free agent class should have plenty of opportunities to make good impressions. Los Angeles became the latest team to announce their group on Sunday, inking the following nine rookies to deals:
- Landen Akers, WR (Iowa State)
- Alaric Jackson, OT (Iowa)
- Paris Ford, S (Pittsburgh)
- Jovan Grant, S (Merrimack College)
- Jeremiah Haydel, WR (Texas State)
- Jordan Meredith, OL (Western Kentucky)
- Max Roberts, OLB (Boston College)
- George Silvanic, DT (Air Force)
- Troy Warner, S (BYU)
The Rams surprised everybody by drafting three receivers, but that didn’t stop them from signing another two. The fact they signed three safeties would seem to indicate one of those guys has a decent chance of cracking the roster. Warner might have a real shot since Aaron Wilson tweets that he got a $12.5K signing bonus. He’s also the brother of star 49ers linebacker Fred Warner, who the Rams are quite familiar with.
Jackson got a $20K signing bonus, Wilson tweets, and since the Rams also shocked everybody by not drafting an offensive lineman, he could gave a good chance as well. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection this past year, and started 42 games at left tackle for Iowa. He was a projected sixth-round pick by Lance Zierlein of NFL.com.
