A tight end out of South Alabama, Everett was the first selection of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Rams in the second round -- LA did not have any first round picks as a result of the trade that landed them Jared Goff at No. 1 in 2016's draft. Wide receiver Kupp and saftey Johnson were selected one round later in the third.

The Rams begin their mandatory mini-camp on June 13.
