Added to the Rams nine player practice squad are DT Omarius Bryant-Western Kentucky, OL Michael Dunn-Maryland, OL Jake Eldrenkamp-Washington, DB Isaiah Johnson-Georgia Tech, LB Cassanova McKinzy-Auburn, WR Paul McRoberts-Southeast Missouri State, FB Sam Rogers-Virginia Tech, OLB Carlos Thompson-Ole Miss, TE Travis Wilson-Utah.

Eldrenkamp, an offensive lineman from Washington was a player who brought a ton of versatility to the Rams. The former Husky was experimented with at the center for Los Angeles as the team looked to shore up a position that they have struggled with. He’s a solid player who this team may benefit from yet in 2017, as depth on the O-line is a concern for McVay.

McRoberts, who can make catches, will also be a valuable player of the practice squad should LA have an injury to a very talented corp of wide receivers. An undrafted free agent from Southeast Missouri State in 2016, he gives the Rams depth at a position with a lot of options for Sean McVay and his second year quarterback Jared Goff.
