New England’s first-round NFL draft pick on Thursday caught a lot of folks off guard and that includes the Los Angeles Rams.
With the 29th pick acquired via trade, the Patriots selected Tennessee-Chattanooga guard Cole Strange. He is a two-star prospect out of high school who developed into a four-year college starter.
The Rams, who had the night off thanks to dealing their first-round pick for Matthew Stafford, watched the draft with the rest of us. General manager Les Snead and head coach Sean McVay were in the midst of speaking with reporters when they saw Bill Belichick’s selection.
McVay: “Strange just went.”
Snead: “Oh my, UT Chattanooga to the first round.”
McVay: “How about that? And we wasted our time watching him thinking he’d be at 104, maybe.”
Los Angeles has traded their first-round pick in each of the last six drafts and doesn’t currently have a first-rounder in 2023, which would make it seven.
They won the Super Bowl this past February, so they are not stressing about anything as you can tell by the video.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
