The L.A. Rams didn’t have a first-round pick, and they traded pick No. 37 to the Bills. Now, with the 44th overall selection, the Rams have made a selection.

The selection is South Alabama tight end Gerald Everett.

He becomes the fourth tight end taken in the 2017 draft; the position is regarded as very deep this year.

Like many pass-catching tight ends, the knock on Everett is his blocking ability. But that’s why teams tend to have two tight ends.

Everett has drawn immediate comparisons to Washington tight end Jordan Reed, a guy new Rams coach Sean McVay helped develop before getting his own team.

    This seems like a strange pick when you have problems on the o-line, wide receiver and secondary. It appears they are setting up for a lot of short passes to the tight end, which you do when you have problems on the o-line
