Here are seven members of the Los Angeles Rams facing the most pressure when it comes to potential roster cuts before the 2018 preseason finale.

While the Los Angeles Rams will be keeping themselves busy over the next week or so trying to finalize a deal with Aaron Donald before that first game against the Oakland Raiders, Sean McVay and the rest of the coaching staff will also soon have to trim the roster down to 53 players. Once Thursday’s preseason finale against the New Orleans Saints is officially in the books, the time will come for McVay and company to make their final decisions over which players are worth keeping around on the roster for the regular season, which is always fascinating to watch.

Between players emerging out of nowhere to make a strong case for a roster spot to certain individuals that appeared to be a lock finding themselves on the bubble to be cut, nobody said trimming the roster to 53 players was going to be easy. But at the end of the day, the decision McVay makes will be based off what he believes gives Los Angeles the best chance of living up to the offseason hype of a serious Super Bowl contender in the NFC.
