What would the LA Rams look like today without re-signing or signing and prospective free agents?
Restricted free agents are kept on the roster for this exercise, however. We should expect the team to retain those players.
Quarterback - Matthew Stafford
Backup - John Wolford
Something’s different here.
Running back - Cam Akers
Backup - Darrell Henderson, Xavier Jones, Raymond Calais
Will the team search for a “Malcolm Brown” type or more Darrell Henderson insurance?
Wide Receiver 1 - Robert Woods
Wide Receiver 2 - Cooper Kupp
Wide Receiver 3 - Van Jefferson
Depth - Nsimba Webster, Trishton Jackson
A veteran starting receiver could be added here.
Tight End 1 - Tyler Higbee
Tight End 2 - Brycen Hopkins
Depth - Johnny Mundt (RFA)
LA could mull potential upgrades to Higbee as starter.
Left Tackle - Andrew Whitworth
Left Guard - David Edwards
Center - Austin Corbett
Right Guard - Bobby Evans
Right Tackle - Rob Havenstein
Depth - Joe Noteboom, Tremayne Anchrum, Brian Allen, Jamil Demby (FUT)
The most glaring issue would be on the interior. There’s reason to feel comfortable with Noteboom as Whitworth’s backup, but can Corbett start at center? Is there a player who seems like he’s going to be a quality starter at right guard? The interior of the offensive line could be the top offseason priority.
Defensive Tackle - Aaron Donald
Nose Tackle - A’Shawn Robinson
Defensive End - Michael Brockers
Depth - Greg Gaines, Sebastian Joseph-Day
Morgan Fox is a free agent and this position is quickly out of depth.
Inside Linebacker - Micah Kiser
Inside Linebacker - Troy Reeder
Strongside Linebacker - Terrell Lewis
Weakside Linebacker - Justin Hollins
Depth - Travin Howard (ERFA), Kenny Young, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Justin Lawler
Wouldn’t be surprised if I got the most comments about the “choices” for starting linebackers, but it’s almost all speculation at this point.
Cornerback - Jalen Ramsey
Cornerback - Darious Williams (RFA)
Slot Cornerback - Terrell Burgess
Depth - David Long, Donte Deayon (FUT)
Decided to move Burgess to slot cornerback, a position that was in mind for him when he was drafted as a safety. Burgess may win a job at safety, but given the roster’s current construction without further moves, I think he’d best serve a role at corner.
Free Safety - Juju Hughes
Strong Safety - Jordan Fuller
Depth - Taylor Rapp, Nick Scott, Jake Gervase (FUT)
Yes, I went outside the box. Prefer to keep Rapp near the box instead.
Kicker - Matt Gay
Punter - Johnny Hekker
The team actually doesn’t have a longsnapper signed yet, since Jake McQuaide is a free agent.
