|The Los Angeles Rams will get to make up for lost time with eight picks on Day 3 of the NFL draft on Saturday.
With four picks in both the fourth and sixth rounds , the Rams will have plenty of chances to address needs in the defensive front seven. The Rams have to replace outside linebackers Robert Quinn and Connor Barwin, who combined for 13.5 sacks last season , and inside linebacker Alec Ogletree, who led the team with 95 tackles.
Head coach Sean McVay identified replenishing depth throughout the roster as another goal , something they accomplished with their lone selection so far by taking TCU offensive tackle Joe Noteboom in the third round. Noteboom could serve as the swing tackle while being groomed as the eventual successor to Andrew Whitworth at left tackle.
Special teams contributions will also be a priority as several core players are expected to fill larger roles this season.
The Minnesota Vikings enter the second day of the NFL draft with the 62nd and 94th overall picks and a pressing need on the offensive line.
With their second and third round selections Friday, the Vikings will look hard at filling a spot up front to help protect new quarterback Kirk Cousins. Only six offensive linemen were taken in the first round Thursday [url=]Tyler Boyd Jersey[/url] , when the Vikings picked Central Florida cornerback Mike Hughes.
The Vikings used their third-rounder in 2017 on center Pat Elflein, who stepped in as an immediate starter. The last time the Vikings took an offensive lineman in the first three rounds in consecutive years was 2005 and 2006.
