The team over at Pro Football Focus have released their 2019 preseason all-rookie team, and two Los Angeles Rams made the cut:

WR Nsimba Webster - 83.1

Nsimba Webster was arguably the most reliable rookie wide receiver this preseason, catching every single catchable pass thrown his way. Webster showed superb production with 2.24 yards per route run, four explosive plays (15-yard plays), three broken tackles and a 123.0 passer rating when targeted. It’s no surprise the Los Angeles Rams kept the undrafted Webster on the 53-man roster.

Webster was actually set to tryout for the Canadian Football League, though he didn’t have a passport and it prevented him from doing so. Luckily for Webster, he got a shot with the Rams and made the absolute most of it. Not only is it highly impressive for a guy like him to make this list, but he ultimately achieved every football players’ goal: make your teams 53-man roster.

DT Greg Gaines - 86.2

Fourth-round pick Greg Gaines was stout against the run throughout his preseason and earned an 85.3 run-defense grade for his efforts. The former Washington Husky wasn’t too shabby in the pass-rush either, with five total pressures and a 14.3% win rate.

Gaines wasn’t starting at nose tackle in the preseason as the Rams elected to give Sebastian Joseph-Day that duty, though it wouldn’t be surprising in the least if Gaines snatches the starting job at some point this season. Gaines looked very lively in the trenches during the preseason, showing his ability to translate his game seamlessly.
