Looking for his own version of Jordan Reed, Rams head coach Sean McVay tabbed South Alabama TE Gerald Everett in Round 2. Everett is known for big plays, averaging 14.8 yards per catch in college.

TE Gerald Everett had a good week at Senior Bowl workouts. Route running and open field ability after the catch. At 239 pounds, with 4.6 speed, Everett will play an H-Back/Slot role in the Rams offense.

With the 44th pick, the Rams have selected Gerald Everett, a tight end out of South Alabama. 6-foot-3, 239 pounds; forms a nice complement to their other pass-catching tight end, Tyler Higbee. Tight ends are crucial to Sean McVay, and he needs a second one.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Gerald Everett is another of these no-blocking TEs who function as dynamic receivers, which is something Jared Goff and the Rams very much need. Can help them create mismatches on offense.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Rams, who traded down from 37 to 44 to gain an additional third-round pick, are finally on the clock. Some names available: WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, CB Jourdan Lewis, S Josh Jones. It will be either a receiver or a defensive back.

Behind Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky ranked fifth in the nation in yards per game (523.1) in 2016 and led Conference USA in rushing yards. That should be welcome on a Chargers offense that ranked 26th in rushing yards per game.

Chargers nab Forrest Lamp
NFL 

Despite playing left tackle at Western Kentucky, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. says Lamp's shorter arms make him better suited to play guard or center in the NFL.

So offensive lineman Forrest Lamp is gone to the Chargers in the second round. So much for Lamp possibly falling to the Falcons. Maybe Indiana's Dan Feeney, Temple's Dion Dawkins, Pittsburgh's Dorian Johnson in play for Falcons at guard with the 63rd overall pick.

NFL 

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

The Chargers just got one of the biggest steals of the draft in guard Forrest Lamp. We had him ranked as the No. 16 overall player and the No. 1 offensive lineman, and he fell to the 38th pick. He dominated against Alabama this season. Fills a big need for the Chargers.

Chargers fill another position of need up front with the selection of OL Forrest Lamp at No. 38. Instant upgrade to the team's interior offensive mine.

Correction on Bills' trade with Rams: according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, it is pick No. 149. But that is a fifth-round selection, not fourth-round. Bills now have four selections in fifth round.

NFL 

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

G Forrest Lamp and WR Zay Jones are on the board at 37th overall, but the Rams have traded their pick to the Bills, who also get the Rams' 149th pick. Rams will pick 44th and 91st, giving them two third-round picks today.

Eric D. Williams ESPN Staff Writer 

With the Chargers nearing the clock at No. 38, Western Kentucky OL Forrest Lamp makes some sense. Chargers also could use another playmaker on offense like Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon.

NFL 

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer 

Bills have traded up with the Rams from No. 44 to No. 37. Buffalo also received 149 (fourth round) and gives up No. 44 and No. 91 (third round).

Falcons first-rounder Takk McKinley on being selected with the 26th overall pick: ``To be honest, I thought I was going to go way earlier. So to get in the late rounds, I was like, `Man, am I'm going to get picked? What's going on?' The sweat started to come. When Atlanta made that trade and picked me, it was a bit surprising. It was a few teams that was willing to pick me. But Atlanta doing that, it's a blessing.''
