Los Angeles Rams Draft: Top 5 Wide Receiver Targets

Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Rams have their top three receivers set with Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua, and Demarcus Robinson, but behind them, they don’t have a next-man-up. Ben Skowronek and Tutu Atwell are both playing in the final year of their rookie deals and Tyler Johnson will likely re-sign on a short-term deal.

The Rams have scored big outside the first round. Let’s see if they can do it again.

Top Wide Receiver Prospects For the Los Angeles Rams

Round 2: Pick 52

Jalen McMillan, Washington: McMillian is being slept on for two reasons; he suffered a knee injury that kept him out of several games in 2023 and he played alongside Odunze and Ja’Lynn Polk at Washington.

In 2022, he caught for 1098 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2023, he caught more than for more than 90 yards in four of the seven games he played in.

McMillian ran a 4.47 40, with a 37-inch vertical and a 127″ broad jump, and is one of the more willing blockers in the class.

Round 3: Pick 99

Brenden Rice, USC: It all seemed to click for Rice in the back half of his final college season. His route running improved and his hands turned baby soft. He is also sneaky big at 6’2″ 208 lbs. If he has the work ethic and IQ of his father, he will continue to improve..

Cornelius Johnson, Michigan: He is a good combination of size (6’3″, 218 lbs) and speed (4.4 speed, 10’7″ broad). He is a work in progress as a receiver but has all the makings of a developmental depth piece

Round 6: Pick 196

Jalen Coker, Holy Cross: Coker is built for the NFL at 6’1″ and 208 lbs and had great production, although at a low level of competition. He doesn’t have top-end speed, but good for what you find in the 6th round, with a 4.57 40-time. But his explosive traits make him more than intriguing; 1.52 10-yard split, 42.5 inch vertical, and 128-inch broad jump.

Round 6: Pick 217

Bub Means, Pitt: Good size, with long arms and big hands. With 4.43 speed, a 39.5-inch vertical, and 19 bench reps, he has some intriguing physicality.
