Rams cap third round action with trade and OL Bobby Evans

Clarence Dennis
STAFF WRITER

The Rams picked a bit earlier than anticipated at the end of the third round, swapping their No. 101 and No. 133 selections to the Patriots for No. 97 and No. 162.

Los Angeles welcomed offensive lineman Bobby Evans out of the University of Oklahoma to the NFL with their No. 97-overall pick — rounding out four total prospects added in the top-100 for general manager Les Snead and his staff.

Evans redshirted his freshman season in Norman, Okla. before playing three full seasons for the Sooners, two at right tackle, one at left tackle. He earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors in his redshirt freshman and sophomore seasons, before he was named the nation’s top offensive lineman, winning the Moore Award as a redshirt junior.

Evans said he looks forward to joining the defending NFC Champs and the established “winning culture” in L.A in an emotional phone call with the Los Angeles media.

“This is the first time I’ve seen my dad cry in a long time,” he said between sniffles.

The 6-foot-4, 312-pound tackle should be welcomed with open arms in Los Angeles, after line lost both left guard Rodger Saffold and center John Sullivan in free agency.

Have read "nasty" about him more than once. I like that.
I think he competes against Blythe this year and is a starting guard next year.. while backing up RT this season and both next.


Okay, okay, okay.... I'll stop being a dick.

Funny - I watched a bunch of video on him, and because so many were pass plays, I didn't really get the impression that he's a "mauler".
I will say that he appears to have good feet, gets to the 2nd level easily, seals off blocks, and has excellent vision.
Looks like a good player to me. 8-)

Agreed. At the very least add depth at guard and tackle, which is always a good thing to have.

See Evans getting a lot of reps at LT in preseason and practice, since Whitworth is saved for games. Rams will have time to evaluate, see where he fits best for the future, most likely at guard.
Demby was mentioned by McVay before the draft as a player he sees to step up, he has first shot at backup G this year, he along with Evans may be the #6 and #7 linemen going into the year.

Meet Bobby Evans: Three things to know about the Rams rookie OL

Evans declared for the 2019 NFL Draft as a redshirt junior, after four years on campus in Norman, Oklahoma. With three seasons protecting valuable signal-callers across the offensive line under his belt, Evans should provide some valuable depth to the Rams offensive front and gain valuable experience playing behind left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who is set to wrap up his three-year deal with the close of the 2019 campaign.

Here are three things to know about Evans:

1. VERSATILITY

Evans did not miss a game in three seasons at OU, starting at both right and left tackle on the Sooner offense. He earned All-Big 12 Honorable Mention honors in 26 games over two seasons at right tackle, before a switch to left tackle ahead of his final season on campus, where he earned a Second-Team All-Big 12 nod.

Evans’ experience playing across the O-line could pay off in his professional career as a member of offensive line coach/run game coordinator Aaron Kromer’s unit.

“Any time a guy can play two positions like that, starting right and going to the left, you got to love his versatility and his athleticism that he’s showing,” Kromer said following the third-round selection.

What can Bobby Evans bring to the offensive line room?

Because two starters on Los Angeles’ offensive line departed the franchise during the offseason, the Rams’ depth pieces from last year — Joe Noteboom and Brian Allen — are now slated to become starters in 2019. That, in turn, created a need for L.A. to replenish depth up front.

Enter Bobby Evans out of Oklahoma, who has a chance to be an important part of the Rams’ offensive line in 2019 and beyond.

Bobby Evans in awe of new teammates: 'Wow, these guys are superstars'

A lot of rookies come to the NFL from small schools, and their first taste of the pro ranks might be their first time ever in the spotlight. New Los Angeles Rams offensive lineman Bobby Evans isn’t one of those rookies.

Evans, a third-round pick in last month’s draft, played his college ball at Oklahoma, so he’s used to being on a big stage. Oklahoma has made the College Football Playoff each of the past two seasons, and Evans has blocked for two first overall picks, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray, the past couple of years. He’s played with countless NFL players, which makes it all the more amusing that he was apparently starstruck in his first day at the Rams’ facility.
