2016 Rams Roster Preview: G Jamon Brown And The Rebound

New, comments

Jamon Brown was off to a solid start as a rookie in 2015 before going down to injury in the second half of the season. Can he pick up where he left off?

Jamon Brown was the second offensive lineman picked by the Rams in the 2015 NFL Draft. A three-year stater for the Louisville Cardinals at multiple positions, NFL scouts liked Brown’s versatility and quickness off the ball. Brown earned Second Team All-ACC Honors and was projected to be a mid-round draft pick. Due to his draft position and lack of depth on the offensive line, Brown was counted on immediately to be a starter.

Brown started the first nine games of the season until breaking his leg (warning, may be graphic) against the Chicago Bears trying to make a tackle after a Nick Foles interception. Coming into this season, Brown is expected to pick up right where he left off, as the starting right guard, most likely next to his draft classmate, Rob Havenstein.

Roster Battle

At times, Brown seemed to be one of the more consistent lineman for the Rams last season before suffering his freak injury. Expect him to man the right guard spot out of the gate.

Expectations

With no huge additions to the offensive line this year, the expectations remain the same. Unless Wichmann, Reynolds, or Donnal prove everyone wrong and improve drastically, this is Brown’s spot to lose.

Chances of Making the Final Roster (9.75/10)

The starting lineup is pretty set with LT Greg Robinson, LG Rodger Saffold, C Tim Barnes, Brown and RT Rob Havenstein. Can’t see how Jamon doesn’t make the final roster unless due to freak injury or circumstance.
