The Rams pulled a fast one with the selection of Todd Gurley at tenth overall.
Gurley slipped in to the top ten despite tearing his ACL towards the end of last season. He heads to a Rams team with very little talent around him offensively. He has inconsistent Nick Foles at quarterback but no receivers and an offensive line that ranked second-to-last.
By himself, Gurley is a top talent. But for dynasty purposes, it’s hard to see him making an impact and certainly not anytime soon. Could be a good value pick in dynasty leagues if taken in the mid-first round of rookie drafts. Obviously, it’ll drop incumbent running back Tre Mason’s stock considerably.
Dynasty Impact: Donald creates a fearsome defensive line with Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Averaged almost 10 sacks per game playing the interior and has the capability to do the same in the NFL. Perhaps has more benefit for Long and Quinn as more attention given to the inside means less on the outside. Quinn should continue his dominance while Long could see a resurgence. In real life, the Rams have the makings of a great defense.
Dynasty Impact: A mauler of a left tackle, Robinson will be an immediate upgrade in run protection for the Rams. Slated to start the season at left guard to open his career, Robinson will eventually take over the left tackle position. This will bode extremely well for incumbent running back Zac Stacy with the Rams playing in a tough division full of top defenses. A potential Pro Bowler, the 6′ 5″, 332-pounder will also provide some much-needed protection for quarterback Sam Bradford or whoever ends up being the quarterback long-term. Robinson is also surprisingly quick with a sub-5.00 40-time at the combine. Still young and will need some coaching but will be a fantastic tool for all the Rams specialists.
