3. Work out DB rotations with stating S Taylor Rapp in there
The LA Rams got a lot of quality secondary work for rookies Terrell Burgess and Jordan Fuller during starting safety Taylor Rapp’s recovery period. Now that he can finally put the pads on, he’ll certainly be getting his share of the defensive snaps at the scrimmage. That’s about the only certainty.

The Rams are enjoying an abundance of talent in the secondary this training camp. Beyond the starting five defensive backs, the names of Terrell Burgess, Jordan Fuller, Nick Scott, Juju Hughes, David Long jr., Adonis Alexander, and Donte Deayon have all been singled out as having made exceptional plays.
More depth needed
With the team facing an uncertain future with four of the five starting defensive backs, the team is forced to carry more players this season as players to develop for starting and rotational roles next year. While the talent is most certainly there on the roster today, the team will be forced to decide where on the roster the team can go lean to carry the extra defensive back.
One of the greatest challenges facing the Rams today is the uncertainly to the 2021 NFL Free Agency market. That is why, when setting today’s roster, part of that process will be with an eye upon 2021 and the needs of next year’s roster as well.
