Bleacher Report will be providing a grade for each pick and draft move. The Rams will be judged in the first round on their ability to either grab a high-profile player with the sixth pick or the value they get for a trade.
From there, grades will depend on their ability to find value and plug holes.

My biggest issue with the Rams is they appear to be trading quality players for quantity. The trade with Washington was one of the best in recent seasons, but from there they squandered an opportunity to get a shut-down corner or elite wide receiver or defensive tackle.
Getting more picks was the No. 1 priority for the Rams, and they certainly are doing that. However, they only added a third-round talent with the extra second-round pick and had a measurable drop in talent due to the trade with Dallas.
They've added some players with off-field concerns but immense talent. It is time to get the support system in place.
