Rams trade picks, select defensive lineman in Round 4 of draft

The Rams started Day 3 of the NFL draft by getting help on the defensive line, and also made a trade. They traded the 121st pick in the fourth round and the 209th pick (6th round) to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for picks 130 (4th round), 170 (5th round) and 249 (7th round).

BOBBY BROWN III, defensive line
6 feet 4, 321 pounds, Texas A&M, Round 4, Pick 117

Notable: Brown was voted to the All-Southeastern Conference freshman team in 2018 and was named All-SEC in 2020.

Last season: Brown made 22 tackles, including 7.5 for losses. He recorded 5.5 sacks.

Why the Rams drafted him: After trading Michael Brockers to the Detroit Lions and watching Morgan Fox sign a free-agent contract with the Carolina Panthers, the Rams were in need of depth along the defensive front. Brown joins a line that includes star Aaron Donald, A’Shawn Robinson and Sebastian Joseph-Day.
