Several members of the 2019 draft class – also devoid of a first-round pick – are projected to do the same during the upcoming season.

On Tuesday, rookies attended team meetings and performed drills on the field for the first time as the Rams continued voluntary offseason workouts. Organized team activities begin Monday.
