Los Angeles Rams: Predicting the 53 man roster
The Los Angeles Rams will have to make plenty of tough decisions to end up at the lucky number of 53 players at the end of the preseason.
The Los Angeles Rams just wrapped up their second game of preseason against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2 of the NFL preseason. The Rams pulled out a 19-15 victory against the silver and black in the LA Coliseum. There was definitely improvements made from the previous week, when the Rams lost 33-7 to the Baltimore Ravens.
It still remains to be seen how much playing time the Rams starters will get in the coming weeks. As most fans know, head coach Sean McVay has been the center of speculation for two weeks now as to whether he plays his starters, even a few of them, or keeps them on the sidelines. If the starters are limited, especially players like Jared Goff and Todd Gurley, it will be a huge opportunity for the “bubble” guys to prove themselves worthy of a roster spot.
There are a couple of positions that I believe the Rams will focus on to assure depth, while others can sit comfortably. I will begin by predicting the 53 man roster that will end being decided at the beginning of September.
With two weeks to go in the exhibition season, a lot can still be determined, as McVay still has some questions to answer. Week 3 against the Houston Texans will go a long way in determining who fans see come September 9, against the Raiders.
