Roster preview: CB Ramon Richards Ramming on richlyby EddieP on July 18, 2019 at 5:00 pm
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Can Richards carve out a role in a deep DB room? Next man up on the Los Angeles Rams’ 90-man roster is our second-year defensive back out of Oklahoma St., Ramon Richards. Richards made his way out to LA as an UDFA rookie last year. For the majority of the year, Richards found himself on the practice squad. To make it in LA in 2019, Richards will need to make a greater impression. Roster Battle Though a safety at OSU, the Rams have Ramon listed as a cornerback. That designation thrusts him into a heavily contested — and congested — roster battle. With the top four or five corner spots pretty much called for, Ramon’s opportunities at making the final roster are slim. He’ll have to tussle it out with the likes of Darious Williams (roster preview), Dont’e Deayon (roster preview), Dominique Hatfield, Kevin Peterson and hell, maybe even Troy Hill. Expectations It is hard to say. He was a practice squad player in 2018. He should have his eyes set on cracking the mid-tier depth chart and securing a special teams’ role. Chances of Making the Final Roster (3/10) It is hard seeing Ramon carving out a niche on this Rams squad. It is too deeply loaded. […]
Roster preview: LB Landis Durham awaits his opportunityby Sean Wilkinson on July 18, 2019 at 3:00 pm
Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images Durham is a longshot, but a good training camp could change that. Los Angeles Rams Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4 scheme blends roles and responsibilities among the front seven. Phillips made Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers DEs and placed former Ram Mark Barron as the primary run-stopping MLB. Phillips isn’t afraid to shuffle players around to fit his scheme. EDGE Landis Durham doesn’t really fit that mold. Roster Battle Between Dante Fowler, Jr., Clay Matthews and Samson Ebukam the Rams have the majority of their OLB snaps spoken for. And that’s before Ogbonnia Okoronkwo is factored into the mix. Durham will be playing from behind the 8 ball during camp as he fights a multitude of other young players for a potential 5th OLB slot., Expectations Minimal. Unless Durham has a phenomenal camp, he isn’t going to be around for long. Chances of making the final roster (1/10) I have a hard time envisioning a scenario where Durham makes the roster. I’m just not sold that he’s more than a camp body at this point. […]
Roster preview: LB Josh Carraway ready to get carried awayby Skye Sverdlin on July 18, 2019 at 1:00 pm
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Will the former TCU star finally find a home with the Rams? Coming out of TCU in 2017, Los Angeles Rams LB Josh Carraway had the makings of an intriguing prospect. He was a bit raw, but very active and rangy with good size. He starred in the 60-yard shuttle, but lacked in the 40-yard dash. In 2015 and 2016, he started every game for the Horned Frogs, led the team in sacks, and was All Big 12. Carraway’s first opportunity as pro came when the Tennessee Titans drafted him in the 7th round on the 2017 NFL Draft. With the Titans, Carraway split time between the practice squad and the active roster, but was ultimately waived as the 2018 began. He then landed with Washington, where he again served as a practice squad player. Will he amount to more than that with the Rams? Roster Battle Coming off the edge, Carraway will have layers of competition to fight through. Dante Fowler, Clay Matthews, and Samson Ebukam are locks, followed by Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Morgan Fox, Trevon Young, and Justin Lawler. Expectations Carraway will have to demonstrate improved technique and plenty of fire in conjunction with an opportunity should one or more of the players ahead of him get dinged up. Since his speed isn’t the greatest, latching onto the roster via special teams may be a challenge. Most likely Carraway seems destined for another season on the practice squad. Chances of making the final roster (1/10) Carraway might finally put it together and make an unexpected push, but it seems somewhat improbable. Best of luck to Josh in camp! Here is some footage of Josh Caraway at TCU. […]
Random Ramsdom, 7/18by Joey The Jerk on July 18, 2019 at 10:00 am
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports As the offseason slowly comes to a close, the stories about your LA Rams are beginning to multiply. Which means one of you has been feeding them after midnight! Not cool. Rams players entering training camp with injury questions | Rams Wire The Los Angeles Rams have been blessed with a relatively healthy team the last couple of years, give or take a knee scandal here or there. But besides RB Todd Gurley II, guys like WR Cooper Kupp and my boy LB Samson Ebukam are also going to be taking it easy in camp. And given Coach McVay’s approaching to preseason games, the entire team will probably be taking it easy. Aaron Rodgers describes what it’s like to face Aaron Donald | Pro Football Talk It must be pretty terrifying to face off with a monster like DT Aaron Donald. QB Aaron Rodgers explains how he stays away from the superstar defensive player, which unlike his family, has proven to be difficult over the years. 50 reasons to be excited for the 2019 NFL season | M!ke Drop Sports It’s a bit of a slow news day, as I providing a link for this blog that I have never read before today. But they do discuss the idea of the LA Rams going into a Super Bowl slump. Fun! NFL training camp: most interesting storylines for every team | For The Win USA Today’s NFL site has some good nuggets about each team; it’s a solid read even though the Rams storyline is one we’ve heard a thousand times (Gurley’s knee is broken, pass it on!)

Roster preview: TE Kendall Blanton ready for his entranceby Sosa Kremenjas on July 17, 2019 at 8:16 pm
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Could the UDFA rookie find himself on the 53-man roster come September? Los Angeles Rams TE Kendall Blanton is another undrafted free agent looking to earn a roster spot. A four-year player for the Missouri Tigers, he was a rotational option working for the last two years behind star TE Albert Okwuegbunam. Roster Battle Blanton will compete with multiple bodies at the tight end position. The two locks are Gerald Everett — who could see an extended role offensively — and Tyler Higbee, who’s in a contract year. The remaining guys are Johnny Mundt, Keenan Brown (roster preview) and Blanton. Generally, a team will keep three tight ends on the active roster, meaning Blanton has a shot to earn a spot. Expectations As a rookie UDFA, Blanton’s only goal should be to stick in the NFL in any way possible. Whether that means the practice squad or active roster, Blanton has to have a strong camp and preseason presence if he’s to stick on the 53-man roster. Chances of making the final roster (1/10) Blanton may not stick on the active roster, though he could very well earn a practice squad spot. The third tight end on a roster is typically a very solid blocker and special teams player. With that being the case, I believe Mundt has a strong leg up on his competition for the final tight end spot on the active roster. […]
