When you’re the current Super Bowl favorites it’s obvious you don’t have too many roster holes to fill. That allows the Rams to draft from a position of real strength. Even though they already have Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters as their starting corners, adding a young talent to the secondary would make a lot of sense.
Love’s ability to shut down one side of the field has been a big key for Notre Dame’s defensive success this season. He may not have the top measurables in the class, but his tape shows him to be a really steady defender. Love has the ability to play either on the outside or in the slot. That quality will be very attractive to several NFL teams.
In truth, the Rams could go in a bunch of directions here. They really should take the most talented player regardless of position. That could make them a landing spot for a versatile defender like Wilkins. In the end, having top flight corners is too important for their defense to pass on a player like Love.
The best teams in the NFL double down on their positions of strength. Drafting Love would allow the Rams to do just that. Look for Sean McVay and company to scout a lot of cornerbacks ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft.
