Every NFL Team’s Biggest Draft Need

Every NFL Team’s Biggest Draft Need

by Andy Benoit & Emily Kaplan

With help from The College Column’s Emily Kaplan, we identify what each team needs most (aside from quarterbacks), and which prospects fit the bill

Disclaimer from Andy: There are many teams that need a quarterback, and if a team needs a quarterback that is their biggest need. But because there are so many questions about this quarterback class, and because we have already gone over it anyway, we’ll shift the conversation to “biggest non-quarterback” need.

37. Los Angeles Rams

Biggest Need: Outside Wide Receiver

Andy: New head coach Sean McVay is one of the best route-combination designers in football, but he can’t do what he did in Washington with Los Angeles’s current receiving corps. Newcomer Robert Woods is a short area inside receiver. Tavon Austin is a gadget player who lacks the necessary patience to consistently play the slot. Youngsters Pharoh Cooper, Mike Thomas and Bradley Marquez all saw scant playing time behind a bad receiving corps last season. In Washington McVay had an diverse array of receivers: DeSean Jackson, speedster; Pierre Garcon, possession guy; Jamison Crowder, slot maestro; Jordan Reed, flex tight end. These all, save for maybe the slot (which Woods can fill), are gaping holes for the Rams right now.
Emily: Amara Darboh was one of Jim Harbaugh’s favorites at Michigan. His backstory is incredible—born in Sierra Leone, orphaned by civil war, settled in Iowa—and he’s a competitor with an NFL frame (6' 2", 214 pounds). Virginia Tech’s Isaiah Ford could be an intriguing project. His speed is enticing, and he could be a deep-ball threat, but he may take a year or two to come along.
