The rest of the story
What we do know right now is that several 2019 starters are now relegated to backup roles this season. 2019 right tackle Bobby Evans is looking to crack the starting lineup, having had a taste of the starting role in 2019. So too is 2019 starting right guard David Edwards looking for a spot on the offensive line.
Even Jamil Demby, last year’s jack-of-all-trades, gained a start last year and is looking for a home. Finally, last year’s starting center Brian Allen is still working on getting back to full strength. So who is left? Well, the Rams have drafted offensive lineman Tremayne Anchrum, undrafted offensive Cohl Cabral, and returning veterans Coleman Shelton, and Jeremiah Kolone.
Rams’ scrimmage second-string OL
The configuration for the Rams’ second-string at their first scrimmage was a bit of a shakeup. Per Sport’s Illustrated Eric Williams, the second string was 6-foot-4 312-pound Bobby Evans at left tackle, 6-foot-2 314-pound Tremayne Anchrum at left guard, 6-foot-3 316-pound Jeremiah Kolone as the center, 6-foot-6 308 pound David Edwards at right guard, and 6-foot-5 321-pound Jamil Demby at right tackle.
That’s 10 of 13 players. The remaining three are returning veteran Coleman Shelton, 2019 starting center Brian Allen, and undrafted free agent, Cohl Cabral. Is it time to start panicking in terms of their chances to make the roster? Not yet. After all, the coaches only had a week of pads to prepare their scrimmage lineups. They’ll be mixing and matching in the days ahead as they begin to fine-tune things. But a curious matter is developing so far. Is there a minor shakeup going on in the offensive line?
