Day 2 of NFL combine workouts reveals Rams fit at cornerback and quarterback

Photo by Stacy Revere/ Could CB Max Melton and QB Spencer Rattler be fits for the Rams? The NFL Combine completed day two of its athletic testing on Friday with defensive backs and tight ends taking the field. When it comes the cornerbacks, one player really stood out as a potential fit for the Los Angeles Rams and what they’ve typically looked for at the position. In media availability, one quarterback stood out as they named Matthew Stafford as someone that that player tries to emulate. Here were the standouts from day two as well as some interesting quotes from...

What drills to Rams care about at the NFL Combine?

Photo by Stacy Revere/ What are some drills that the Rams pay attention to at the NFL Combine? The Los Angeles Rams may not attend the NFL Combine, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t be paying attention to the results. Due to the fact that the Rams don’t travel to Indianapolis, there is this idea that they don’t care about athleticism or the results of the combine. Based on similarities on players that they’ve drafted in the past, that’s simply not true. While teams shouldn’t solely rely on results from the combine, they can help confirm what you’ve...

Are Rams likely to take a quarterback in first round of NFL Draft?

Are Rams likely to take a quarterback in first round of NFL Draft?

Photo by Todd Rosenberg/ The Los Angeles Rams will be in the quarterback market this offseason, especially as it pertains to finding a player to backup Matthew Stafford. General manager Les Snead could approach the position one of a few ways, whether that’s bring in a veteran or draft a quarterback for a second year in a row. NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein listed 10 team most likely to take a quarterback in the first round of this year’s draft. Coming in at number 10 was the Rams. Said Zierlein, “Matthew Stafford is still a quality quarterback, but he just turned 36...

How should the Rams handle LT Alaric Jackson’s pending free agency?

Photo by Cooper Neill/ The undrafted tackle has struggled with injuries, but has been a solid player for the team when on the field The Los Angeles Rams offensive line play improved tremendously from 2022 to 2023. Unfortunately, three out of the starting five lineman are expected to test free agency, as well as their main rotational backup, Joe Noteboom. The team also recently let go of backup center Brian Allen in a cap saving effort. The Rams are expected to try and workout deals with right guard Kevin Dotson, who was one of the best guards statistically last season,...

The Rams may have biggest advantage at wide receiver going into the draft

The Rams may have biggest advantage at wide receiver going into the draft

Photo by Kiyoshi Mio/Icon Sportswire via Cooper Kupp is already extended, Puka Nacua is on a rookie deal, what NFL team has it better with their wide receiver group? The Los Angeles Rams had an absolute stud at their wide reciever position last year. It wasn’t former Super Bowl MVP and champion, Cooper Kupp. It was former fifth round pick, Puca Nakua. We can get into a debate about which team has the most skilled wide receivers, but do the Rams have the biggest advantage at the position going into the upcoming NFL Draft? When constructing an NFL roster it’s not...

Random Ramsdom: Les Snead looking for ‘win-win’ with LA and Joe Noteboom

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 3/1/24 Yesterday’s Random Ramdsom had to do with Kevin Dotson and Coleman Shelton. There was some great comments and conversation there and I hope we can keep it going! Today’s Random Ramsdom has to do with if the Los Angeles Rams are able to work out a deal with Joe Noteboom or not. Dotson, Shelton and Noteboom are all offensive lineman. The 2022-2023 season saw the Rams have more injuires on their offensive line than I care to remember. This past season saw the Rams turn thier...

Rams Reacts Survey Results: Fans wouldn’t mind a trade, if the right situation arose

Photo by Kevin Sabitus/ Majority of fans are taking a wait and see approach when deciding if LA should trade their first-round pick The Los Angeles Rams have a decision to make with their up-and-coming first-round pick. If nothing changes, LA will be making their first selection at 19th overall, but Les Snead and Head Coach Sean McVay have proven that they are not afraid to be aggressive if an opportunity arises. It seems like the fan base is on board with that approach, with the majority saying “maybe” when asked if the Rams should trade their first pick. Based on...

Rams 7-round mock draft: Les Snead addresses Les needs with these 12 picks

Rams 7-round mock draft: Les Snead addresses Les needs with these 12 picks

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports The Rams pick 3 offensive linemen, 2 edges, 2 receivers, 2 corners and more in this 7-round mock draft One month ago, I covered a 2-round mock draft by under-followed draft analyst Sam Teets and recently he went a step further—or five steps further—by making a full 7-round mock draft for the Los Angeles Rams. In this edition, the Rams make 12 picks and address almost every need including along the offensive line with two of the first four picks, plus two edge rushers, two cornerbacks, a safety, and more. L.A. has a ton of picks...

Mel Kiper’s mock draft pick for the Rams

Lily Smith / USA TODAY NETWORK Another mock draft with the Rams picking Cooper DeJean Iowa cornerback Cooper DeJean has been a popular pick for the L.A. Rams in the first round and Mel Kiper’s mock draft for ESPN was no exception. Kiper has the Rams picking DeJean with the 19th overall pick, just like half of all mocks apparently. Fourth-round pick Cobie Durant was a revelation as a rookie in 2022, but he was inconsistent last season, and Derion Kendrick — taken in Round 6 in the same draft — didn’t take a step forward either. So while the Rams got a resurgent...

Random Ramsdom: Are these two players set to hit free agency?

Photo by Scott W. Grau/Icon Sportswire via Los Angeles Rams News and Links for 2/29/24 I believe there are plenty of Lfans that do not want to see the Los Angeles Ram’s let Kevin Dotson walk. However the link beloe does propose the idea that the Rams may let Dotson and fellow offensive lineman Coleman Shelton walk. I don’t know what to make of that. I trust Sean McVay so if he feels he can fill the gaps then go for it, but Dotson for sure seemed like a player worth keeping. I like Shelton too, but it would be hard to keep both because I am guessing both players are...

Sean McVay is set to skip the NFL scouting combine again

Photo by Kevin Sabitus/ Since 2020, McVay has missed the NFL combine in an effort to acclimate with new staff hires and dive into tape The Los Angeles Rams had one of the best drafts of recent memory, selecting rookie sensations like Byron Young, as well as Defensive and Offensive Rookie of the Year candidates Kobie Turner and Puca Nacua. LA was able to find these talented players in the draft, while at the same time, taking a newer approach to the NFL combine and allowing their head coach Sean McVay to miss the event.

Are Rams ‘player report card’ grades a concern?

Are Rams ‘player report card’ grades a concern?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Rams got a D grade on four out of seven categories With SoFi Stadium being a new $6 billion stadium that could be the most ‘state-of-the-art’ in the NFL, if not the world, is it a concern that the Los Angeles Rams received a ‘D’ grade for their locker room facilities in a poll of players? Sure, it’s always a concern when the players express some dissatisfaction with how they’re treated, but maybe their locker room grade isn’t quite as eye opening as the fact that the Rams got a D or D+ on four of seven categories in the 2023...
