When the Rams traded Tavon Austin to the Cowboys, I thought that maybe the Rams would opt to replace Austin with Lasley, especially considering that the Rams have two former Bruin coaches on their staff in Jedd Fisch and Eric Yarber. But the Rams passed on Lasley at pick #160 and the Ravens snagged him at pick #162.
Lasley averaged 8.8 yards after the catch in 2017 for the Bruins. He tore up the Pac-12 in the second half of the season last year. The Ravens are getting a lot of potential value here in the 5th round if Lasley can learn from his past mistakes.
