The Los Angeles Rams released their first unofficial depth chart for the 2019 season before Saturday’s game against the Oakland Raiders.

In a few days, the Los Angeles Rams will be participating in their first official action of the 2019 preseason when they hit the road to take on one of the biggest winners from the offseason in the Oakland Raiders.

Even though Antonio Brown is highly unlikely to play since the speedster continues to deal with a foot injury, the Raiders are one of those teams who could be an early test for the Rams to see where Sean McVay‘s team currently stands after training camp.

Most likely, McVay will take the safe approach by resting a majority of the starters to avoid any potential injuries since the team is already facing enough pressure with certain players such as Todd Gurley and Cooper Kupp.

Assuming this turns out to be the case, all eyes will be on which players have what it takes to make a strong case for certain roster spots since plenty could happen from now until the end of August before Los Angeles reveals their official 53-man depth chart.

Plenty of football fans struggle to enjoy this time of year since the argument can be made that preseason is way longer than it needs to be, but from a roster battle standpoint, this actually provides plenty of excitement.

On Monday, the Rams released their first unofficial depth chart for the 2019 season before that first preseason battle against the Raiders takes place, and to help make things easier to break down, here are three quick reactions worth discussing.
