The Rams continue the fun tradition
A year after winning the Super Bowl, the Los Angeles Rams had one of the worst title defenses in recent memory as key injuries and poor play saw them finish 5-12 in the 2022 season.
The team lost several key players, including linebacker Bobby Wagner and star quarterback Jalen Ramsey, as they head into an uncertain 2023 season in a seemingly competitive NFC West division.
With the 2023 NFL Draft coming up, the Rams are continuing what has become an annual tradition for them – conducting their draft business in a luxurious facility they call the “Draft House.”
For two years, the Rams have been the only NFL team to hold their draft picks outside of their team headquarters — using the fancy Draft House instead.

The Rams won’t have a first-round pick this year, as they sent it to the Detroit Lions in a huge trade that landed quarterback Matthew Stafford last offseason.
But Los Angeles will have a total of 11 picks this year, and their first pick this year will be No. 36, which could be a solid contributor.
They need help on the offensive line, and with Wagner and Ramsey gone, they could use some fresh blood on the defensive side of the football as well.
On the other hand, the Rams are 27th in scoring and last in total yards, but they should be able to be competitive on offense even when healthy.
Star wide receiver Cooper Kupp must recover from a sprained leg that limited him to nine games last season, and they still have wideouts Van Jefferson and Cam Akers, while Stafford is looking to bounce back from a spinal injury.
