After losing Aaron Donald to retirement the Rams have even more work to do on defense. The offense is exciting with lots of talent but there's tons of work to do on the other side of the ball. A move back should still have them in range to take a defensive back like Kool-Aid McKinstry or Ennis Rakestraw and additional picks to improve that side of the ball. The Rams had a terrific draft last year partly because they had lots and lots of picks. Maybe they go back to that strategy.

For the Chiefs, this gets them in front of the Steelers, Dolphins, and Cowboys. All three teams could be a sneaky destination for the next receiver on the board. The Dolphins do have some glaring needs along the interior of the offensive line, but they desperately need a third option behind Hill and Waddle. The Cowboys have yet to extend Ceedee Lamb and have Brandin Cooks on a 1-year deal after releasing Michael Gallup. The Steelers' second-best receiver behind George Pickens is Quez Watkins.

Trade Targets: Adonai Mitchell, Xavier Worthy, Ladd McConkey, or Tyler Guyton
