3. Who makes a strong case at linebacker?

Around this time last year before camp, linebacker was one area in which Los Angeles seemed to have some uncertainty in, although the unit did turn out better than expected.

Not only did Cory Littleton go on to surprise the league by playing well enough to earn Pro Bowl honors for the first time in his career, but the Rams also took a chance on Dante Fowler Jr. that turned out to work wonders.

Take all of this into consideration along with Clay Matthews coming on board this offseason to provide some veteran experience, Los Angeles appears to be in much better shape at linebacker compared to a year ago.

Also, the Rams have plenty of reasons to be excited over some of their younger linebackers looking to make a strong case for themselves in 2019, whether it happens to be Micah Kiser or rookie Dakota Allen.

Training camp and preseason is always the perfect opportunity for players to set themselves apart from their competition. And when it comes to linebacker, there could be a few key position battles worth monitoring over the next few weeks.

Right away, Kiser seems like the one young linebacker with the best chance to continue making a strong case for himself after appearing in every game as a rookie last year for the Rams.
