No. If they get a 3rd round comp pick this year for Trumaine Johnson/Sammy Watkins, we would get the highest of those comp picks. If not, we get their original third rounder.

Okay that’s not so bad. I want that pick now. Need all the help we can get. Hopefully Hyde can be our #2 bc Yeldon is gone

It’s still going to force you burn another pick on a rb because now.. you have no 3rd down rb who is a pass catching threat.

Pass catching and solid pass protector. Those 2 things make up a good 3rd down RB.

And with Yeldon probably gone as a FA, Grant probably ruined forever...We don't really have either of those things in either of our 2 RBs with Fournette/Hyde.

You should be able to find that in FA or the Draft. Phillip Lindsay is a great example. Exceptional pass protector in college with hands, speed, and production, yet he's goes undrafted.

Should be able to find a decent QB somewhere too, eventually...but that appears to elude them as well.

 

Really though, yeah...you should be able to find a guy.  I think Lindsay is a bit of an outlier super-successful case, but you can find plenty serviceable or better RBs and 3rd Down RBs later in the draft and even UDFA.  They found Grant there, in a similar-ish mold (though Lindsay has more versatility).  Problem here is going to be, they're still going to want a guy who has at least a bit of size to run between the tackles (like Yeldon), even out of a 3rd down guy.  And they've realistically gotta find a way to replace Grant as a "change of pace" weapon as well, given the likelihood that his explosiveness is never the same coming off that injury.

The other problem is...we're about to get smacked upside the head with a bit of a cap crunch.  Which means there are going to be a LOT of positions that need to be addressed with cheap drafted/UDFA/near vet minimum type players, with a limited number of picks.  And they seem intent on using picks to draft people like Tanner Lee, who have no business anywhere near a football field instead.  So they seem to want to try to better the team with one hand tied behind their back or something.  This obviously makes things more difficult.

Malcolm Brown will be a RFA. Don't know how aggressive the Rams will be in trying to keep him. He can do both. Great pass protector with soft hands out of the backfield. Grinder between the tackles but runs hard and gets what's blocked.

Oh come on you know its much easier to find a 3rd down back than a QB. Whats surprising is 3rd down backs being so important keep going undrafted
