The 2022 NFL draft is just a week away, which is the perfect time for us to put together our latest seven-round mock draft for the Rams. As you may have heard, they’ll be waiting until No. 104 overall to make their first pick, the result of trades made for Matthew Stafford and Von Miller last year.

The Rams won’t complain because those trades won them a Super Bowl, so it’s the cost of doing business.

In this new seven-round mock, we blended offense, defense and … special teams. Yes, we drafted a punter for the Rams, though not as early as some think they might take one.

Here’s our seven-round haul, which was put together using The Draft Network’s mock draft machine.

Round 3, Pick 104: CB Zyon McCollum, Sam Houston State

McCollum is a bigger cornerback at 6-foot-4, so he’ll be lining up outside instead of in the slot. That’s fine for the Rams, who have Jalen Ramsey and David Long Jr.; both are capable of playing the slot when needed.

Even at 6-4, McCollum ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash and had a 39.5-inch vertical, showing off his rare athleticism. In his career, he picked off 13 passes and forced six fumbles, fitting nicely in the Rams’ zone defense where he’d be afforded the chance to make plays on the ball in coverage.
