While the NFL Draft is important, its the period right after that may be just as important. Undrafted free agents are very important to a team and it’s very possible that a star is found among a group of undrafted guys. Because they didnt have a lot of picks, the Rams are expected to bring in around 18-20 undrafted free agents. Here are the players that have currently signed with the team. Sources are linked.
Clearly going by this list, the Rams are looking to add as many wide receivers and offensive playmakers as possible. They are also going after a couple of secondary guys as that is an area that they were unable to address in the draft. Linebacker is also a common position on the list. The team needs depth there as well as possibly get a special teams player or two. Lastly, Taylor Bertlotet comes in as “competition” for Zuerlein.
A few names to point out. Paul McRoberts, while he played at a small school, he has the size and ability to find success in the NFL. Spruce is also a very polished receiver with good route running ability and soft hands. North also has the size and hands of an NFL receiver. These are three very intriguing players. Bertlotet comes in as competition for Zuerlein, but after Aguayo went off the board, nobody was going to compete with Zuerlein.
Chubb is a linebacker that the Rams could end up liking. He’s a leader, his father played in the NFL and he is relentless. Randolph comes in as a strong safety that is also an excellent tackler. Both players could be potential special team guys. Another cool story is the signing of Ian Seau and you can see why because of the last name. He is the nephew of the late, great Junior Seau. Be sure to keep watching as the Rams continue to sign undrafted free agents.
