St. Louis Rams Rookie Stock Report: Week 10


Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

After a last minute win in San Francisco, the St. Louis Rams were ahead of the division-leading Cardinals heading into the fourth quarter. A 21-point quarter by Arizona sunk the Rams, however, and they fell 31-14 on the road. Here is Ramblin’ Fan’s breakdown of the 2014 rookie draft class after week 10:

Greg Robinson: EVEN

Robinson started at left tackle for the second week in a row. Arizona did their best to get after QB Austin Davis, sending different blitzes at the offensive line. The defense ended with six sacks, and Robinson had lapses from time to time. The big left tackle is still learning, and facing a scheme like the Cardinals’ would have been a challenge even for a seasoned veteran.

Aaron Donald: EVEN

Donald had another good game (what else is new?). He finished with three tackles, one tackle for loss and one quarterback hit. The rookie continues to be a consistent defender on the interior of the defensive line. He’ll look to keep his momentum going against QB Peyton Manning and the high-flying Denver Broncos.

Lamarcus Joyner: Stock DOWN

Joyner was held out with a groin injury against the Cardinals. He didn’t register any statistics before he exited. New signee Mark Barron stepped in and had a great game. He finished with five tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss and two quarterback hits.

Tre Mason: EVEN

Mason led the team in carries for the fourth straight week. He went for 14 carries and 48 yards. Behind an injured offensive line, Mason averages around 3.5 yards per carry in just about every game. The offensive line’s play has been disappointing considering the talent Mason possesses, if only he could get some holes to run through.

Mo Alexander: EVEN


E.J. Gaines: Stock UP

Gaines was busy against the Cardinals. He started at corner and had a few passes defensed on the day. He also added four tackles (one for loss). He even shifted inside to nickel corner to cover the vacancy left by Joyner. Gaines has proved he can play in the NFL so far this season, and the Rams would be wise to continue to groom him and develop him into a good week-to-week cover corner.

Trey Watts: Stock DOWN

Watts didn’t see any action against the Cardinals after catching a pass the week before against the 49ers. He was a pregame inactive.

Ethan Westbrooks: EVEN

Westbrooks was inactive again.

Alex Bayer: EVEN


Marcus Roberson: Stock DOWN

Roberson was a pregame inactive as well.
