The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a Super Bowl victory and they are gearing up to defend their Super Bowl trophy during the upcoming season.
The Rams don’t have any draft picks until the 3rd round, but that did not stop them from pumping up their fan base with an insanely-produced movie trailer leading up to this week’s event.
On Tuesday, the team dropped a nearly 3-minute clip for the fake movie, “On The Clock.” In the clip, they had some huge names taking on the roles of the Rams’ most important figures — Dennis Quaid as owner Stan Kroenke, Josh Holloway as GM Les Snead, Tyrese Gibson as Raheem Morris and Scott Eastwood as Sean McVay.
The team’s description is as follows:
“Hot on the heels of their thrilling Super Bowl LVI victory, the Los Angeles Rams are determined to do the near impossible: make lightning strike twice. But having brazenly gone all in last year by trading away their top draft picks, the challenges that await have never been tougher, the stakes never higher. On one of football’s biggest nights – the NFL Draft – Los Angeles Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke assembles his team to infiltrate the high-profile affair in Sin City and do what they – and no one else – does best: steal the draft.”
For the sixth straight year, the Rams will not have a first-round draft pick after trading for Matthew Stafford last year. The team’s last first-round pick came in 2016 when they selected Jared Goff, who ended up making the move to Detroit as part of the Stafford deal.
The Rams continued to make big moves this offseason by signing linebacker Bobby Wagner and adding former Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson.
