Rams post-training camp 53-man roster projection
The trio of upcoming preseason video games will most likely have an important have an effect on at the LA Rams preliminary Week 1 roster, no less than for a half-dozen or extra unsure spots. Combining the Rams unofficial intensity chart launched previous this week with working towards camp experiences on standout gamers must give us a basic thought on how a few of the ones working towards camp battles are unfolding.
QB (2) – Matthew Stafford, John Wolford
– Wolfords spot because the QB2 might be in query if Bryce Perkins or Devlin Hodges are in a position to polish in his absence all over the approaching preseason video games. Hodges made some spectacular throws in camp previous this week and it must be attention-grabbing to peer how he appears to be like underneath heart this Saturday in opposition to the LA Chargers.
RB (4) – Darrell Henderson, Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais, Jake Funk
– The Rams intensity chart listing Calais forward of Funk and extra significantly additionally has him penciled in at kick returner. As a lot amusing as it might be to peer a veteran operating again come off the LA sideline on third-and-Short (any individual like Canton-bound Adrian Peterson who in order that occurs to be to be had), it simply doesnt really feel like a transfer the Rams entrance workplace are entertaining. Funk has seemed forged in camp and it might most certainly be extra amusing to peer a operating again with some most sensible pace damage off a 60-plus backyard run.
WR (6) – Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, DeSean Jackson, Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, Jacob Harris
– The unofficial intensity chart lists J.J. Koski and Trishton Jackson forward of Tutu Atwell and Ben Skowronek, however I havent noticed any experiences popping out of coaching camp that will warrant that come the common season. Perhaps a standout preseason efficiency or two may just exchange that, on the other hand, I nonetheless imagine this duo is vying for a place or two at the apply squad. Cooper Kupp is indexed because the groups punt returner, a job Atwell turns out destined for as soon as he returns from the COVID-19 reserve listing.
TE (4) – Tyler Higbee, Johnny Mundt, Brycen Hopkins, Kendall Blanton
– Johnny Mundt has been making splash performs in every single place the sphere within the passing recreation and Sean McVay turns out assured in him as TE2. The offseason lack of Gerald Everett is usually a far-off reminiscence if Mundt turns into a passing recreation weapon along with his already forged skill as a blocker.
We havent heard a lot in any respect about Hopkins, so Blantons certain momentum in camp may just elevate over right into a roster spot.
OL (10) – Andrew Whitworth, David Edwards, Brian Allen, Austin Corbett, Rob Havenstein, Joseph Noteboom, Jeremiah Kolone, Coleman Shelton, Bobby Evans, Chandler Brewer
– The Rams unofficial intensity chart has Tremayne Anchrum, Jordan Meredith and AJ Jackson slotted for 1/3 workforce offensive line intensity. Having 10 offensive linemen at the energetic roster turns out like so much however its precisely the quantity they’d energetic to begin the 2020 season.
CB (5) – Jalen Ramsey, Darious Williams, David Long, Donte Deayon, Robert Rochell
– It could be thrilling to peer Donte Deayon parlay his robust camp efficiency into an energetic roster spot. Sixth instances a appeal?
S (4) – Jordan Fuller, Taylor Rapp, Terrell Burgess, Nick Scott
– The offseason lack of John Johnson III used to be anticipated to sting and may just nonetheless be one thing that hinders the protection within the coming months. Thus some distance regardless that, LAs safeties have treated their trade at working towards camp and Rapp may just dangle off Burgess to begin in Week 1.
OLB (5) – Leonard Floyd, Justin Hollins, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Justin Lawler, Terrell Lewis
– Who in the long run steps up past Leonard Floyd at linebacker is also the largest query to be spoke back within the coming weeks. A wholesome stretch for Ogbonnia Okoronkwo could be nice to peer however nonetheless feels too unsure to financial institution on given his historical past. Reports are already surfacing of Terrell Lewis having problems together with his knee, which might result in Chris Garrett briefly advancing forward of him in this listing after a few preseason video games.
ILB (4) Troy Reeder, Kenny Young, Micah Kiser, Ernest Jones
– Troy Reeder and Kenny Young are these days beginning at the unofficial intensity chart and if Lewis is in a position to continue to exist the harm scare together with his knee, I might be expecting Travin Howard to be a convention squad candidate. If he even passes thru waivers.
DL (6) – Aaron Donald, Sebastian Joseph-Day, AShawn Robinson, Bobby Brown III, Greg Gaines, Earnest Brown IV
– Nothing to peer right here instead of a forged crew with quite a lot of intensity. If Greg Gaines is turning a developmental nook, as some experiences out of coaching camp are indicating, this might be a fair higher defensive position crew than the arguably league-best crew that used to be fielded in 2020.
ST (3) – Johnny Hekker, Matt Gay, Matthew Orzech
– LS Steve Wirtel is at this time indexed in the back of Orzech at the intensity chart. The long-snapper festival of 2021 simply doesnt really feel as thrilling because the kicking carousel of 2020.
