With the 97th overall pick in the draft the Los Angeles Rams have selected Oklahoma tackle Bobby Evans. The Rams sent New England the 101st overall pick, as well as No. 133 in the fourth round, getting pick numbers 97 and 162 in return.  They used the 97th pick to select Evans.

Evans replaced current Baltimore Raven Orlando Brown at left tackle on Oklahoma’s offensive line in 2018 and became a second-team All-Big 12 selection at the spot.

Evans was a three-year starter at Oklahoma and has experience playing on both sides of the quarterback. ESPN had him as the 10th ranked offensive tackle in the draft and the 114th overall player.
