Rams snag Chris Ogbonnaya in the 7th

The Rams added a RB who should be able to compete for depth behind SJ39. Ogbonnaya is a RB from Texas University, coming in at 5’ 11”, 220lbs. He started 13 games last year and ran for 373 yards and 4 touchdowns, while adding 540 yards and three scores in the passing game.

He’s a capable ball carrier who can run north and south easily, and isn’t afraid to lower the shoulder and push for a couple extra ways. He’s a hard worker who is willing to block (which he does well) and run hard. He’s also a capable catcher, and can extend to catch passes. He hasn’t shown the good ability to cut, and isn’t one to turn the corner and fire off a huge gallop of a run. He also has the tendency run a bit tall, but should easily be able to make the roster as depth, and has the ability to become a good blocker and backup.
