The Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams should have plenty of company sitting out the first round of the NFL draft next week. The franchise that hasn’t made a selection in round one since taking Jared Goff in 2016 and doesn’t currently have another first-round pick until 2024, is set to be joined by a record seven other teams that have traded away their first-round picks in what has become a growing trend in recent years. This will mark the third time in four years that at least seven teams won’t make a pick in the first round barring one of those teams trading back up.
