Here are the Los Angeles Rams picks so far through the first four rounds: 1. Jared Goff, QB, Cal. 2. Tyler Higbee, TE, Western Kentucky. 3. Pharoh Cooper, WR, South Carolina.

Rams adding some pass catching targets for Jared Goff with TE Tyler Higbee and WR Pharoh Cooper. Put Cooper in the slot and let him go to work.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

After trading pick No. 113 to the Chicago Bears for picks 117 and 206, the Los Angeles Rams selected WR Pharoh Cooper of South Carolina. Cooper is more of a slot receiver and the Rams will have to find a way to use him in conjunction with Tavon Austin but they need more pass catchers. No surprise they went TE and WR with their two fourth-round picks.
