2019 Los Angeles Rams roster preview: LB Landis Durham awaits his opportunity

New, comments

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.
