Defense tidbits

Starting safety Taylor Rapp was unable to go in pads. As he pedaled the exercise bike, rookie teammates Terrell Burgess and Jordan Fuller took reps with the starters.

Both Burgess and Fuller took full advantage of their opportunities on defense, as both looked sharp and made interceptions in drills

CB Darious Williams continues to push hard for a starting role at cornerback, logging an interception in day one with pads on in 11 on 11 drills. He broke up a huge pass play intended for Robert Woods on Day Two.

CB Troy Hill has gotten work at outside cornerback and in the slot. He’s playing well in both roles. He had a huge pass defense on Cooper Kupp. He has more size, so he is more naturally designed for the slot to defend tight ends like Greg Olsen and George Kittle.

Starting outside linebackers are Leonard Floyd and Samson Ebukam. Floyd is a natural in this defense. He is moving very fast and making huge plays.

Terrell Lewis is an athletic freak

While not a starter, outside linebacker Terrell Lewis, is an absolute beast on the edge. He is so incredibly gifted as an athlete. He won’t be buried in the depth chart for long.  I expect he will get his first NFL quarterback sack in September 2020.

The Rams’ defense is going to use multiple sub-packages.  When the Rams defense calls for two inside linebackers, the starters are Micah Kiser and Travin Howard.  When the second-string takes the field, Kenny Young and Troy Reeder hit the field.

Ramsey looking every bit the part of a shutdown cornerback for the LA Rams in training camp so far. He broke up a huge pass play intended for Josh Reynolds and another defense against Robert Woods.

Rookie linebacker Christian Rozeboom is quietly getting noticed and got some work with the two’s. The Rams have a lot of players at the position, so Rozeboom’s early promotion is worth keeping an eye on.
