We’re kicking off today’s conversation with the other side of the topic we discussed yesterday. We shared where we all believe the Rams roster to be strong heading into tomorrow’s draft and now I want to hear where you all believe the roster to be the weakest.
For me, this has to be the inside linebacker spot. Micah Kiser and Troy Reeder look to be the current starters at the position with newly-acquired Kenny Young who is either going to back them up or challenge someone for a starting spot. The problem here is the depth. Travin Howard rounds out the position, leaving them with four bodies. I don’t think I have to say much about how this group lacks any notable presence. Obviously they played well enough to keep the Rams as the number one defense, but I wouldn’t want to continue trusting this group in the same way any longer than I have to.
Look for the Rams to potentially use one of their day two picks on the position.
And now for today’s links.
