5. How will the offensive line look?
Back when the Rams hired McVay in 2017, it would be a major understatement to say the offensive line was a disaster, and was part of the reason Jared Goff failed to win a single game as a rookie (0-7).

Right away, McVay wasted little time improving the protection for Goff landing one of the top free agents from the 2017 class in Andrew Whitworth, and the unit has been one of the best in the league ever since.
With that being said, the Rams did see some changes to the unit this offseason after parting ways with John Sullivan along with allowing Rodger Saffold to hit the open market in free agency before signing with the Tennessee Titans.
But also, Los Angeles clearly had a plan in place since younger players such as Joseph Noteboom and Brian Allen are expected to take on larger roles heading into their sophomore seasons since the other players are no longer around.
Early indications point to the offensive line continuing to be in great shape with these two new players moving into starting roles, but even the Rams know there’s always the inexperience factor.
Hopefully, all goes well enough during camp and preseason with the unit in general to make Los Angeles feel extra confident over the the offensive line continuing to be one of the best in the league.
If not, well let’s just say the Rams better have a good enough backup plan just in case.
