3. Denzel Perryman
Dating back to last season, linebacker was one of the weaker positions for the Rams since the defense seemed unsure whether some of the younger players would step up, although it did help to acquire Dante Fowler Jr. when they did from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Still, even if Fowler does end up returning for another season in Los Angeles since the Rams would love to see what kind of impact the former first-round pick could make playing a full year with the team, the team will still need help at the linebacker position.
Does this mean Denzel Perryman would be worth considering, despite the injuries he’s dealt with over the last two seasons? Watching the linebacker only appearing in 16 games over the last two seasons is obviously concerning, but the Rams need to have the mindset of the potential impact he could make with the assumption that injuries won’t be a concern in 2019.
Looking back at Perryman’s first two seasons in the league when he recorded four sacks in 26 games for the Chargers, this is what the Rams need to closely examine, and determine if a fresh start in a system run by Wade Phillips could help elevate his game to new levels.
