The Rams’ Draft Mansion Always Slaps, But This Year They Outdid Themselves With A Whole Football Field On The Beach

Water is wet, and the Los Angeles Rams don’t have a first-round pick in this year’s draft.

Wait. They do!? The Rams’ Twitter/X bio is very apropos: “A pick?? IN THE FIRST ROUND????” GM Les Snead’s typical strategy toward the NFL Draft is one of, “F*ck them picks!” Sounds like LA’s traditional lack of care for future high draft assets is still intact, though:

In any event, the Rams know how to do the draft right. Even when they haven’t picked in Round 1 in years past, they’re always in some ridiculous mansion, hosting the best draft party in all the NFL. This year is no exception, with a $16.5 million estate housing their war room.

But just in case that wasn’t enough, the Rams went even bigger by building a version of their football field on Hermosa Beach itself:

Why? Who cares why? This is freaking awesome.

In a city where it’s difficult to stand out even when you’ve recently won a Super Bowl, no expense is spared in this football operation. Whether it’s in their execution of building a roster, or making their presence felt in the greater Los Angeles community, this Rams crew makes their mark.

Might as well do it big if you’re actually going to participate in all three days of the NFL Draft. Really, Snead, head coach Sean McVay and the scouting department have done an outstanding job of hitting on a gaggle of later draft picks to fill out the rest of LA’s typical top-heavy approach to team building. In the aftermath of Aaron Donald’s retirement, you’d expect the Rams to bring in some pass-rushing help. However, this 2024 class is particularly loaded on offense, so the rumored move into the top 10 could very well be for an offensive player to McVay’s liking.

I have the Rams going with UCLA EDGE defender Laiatu Latu at 19th overall in my final mock draft. This could be one of the most bonkers first rounds we’ve had in a long time, with an early run expected on offensive tackles, wide receivers and quarterbacks. The Rams aren’t particularly needy at any of those spots, so I don’t know why they feel urgency to vault higher in the first round via trade. It’s nevertheless exciting that LA is leaving no stone unturned in any part of their draft experience to entertain their fans and NFL lovers everywhere. That includes a football field on a beach for some reason.

Whatchu cookin’ up for tonight, McVay?
