The LA Rams will be featuring more nickel and dime packages than many NFL teams. With that in play, the Rams will lean as heavily towards their defensive backs as last season. That means a strong secondary roster.
Cornerback 2019 – 6 2020-6
With the projected loss of four cornerbacks to free agency in 2021, the Rams will most likely aim at carrying more than a normal allotment. With the Rams facing a mass exodus in 2021 of cornerbacks, the team will balance out their roster with younger players who can develop for next season. The Rams will carry a heavy group of practice squad defensive backs with an eye on 2021.
53-man Roster: Jalen Ramsey, Troy Hill, Darious Williams, Donte Deayon, David Long Jr., Adonis Alexander
Practice squad: Dayan Ghanwoloku Juju Hughes
Bubble/cut: Tyrique McGee
Safety 2019 – 5 2020-5
The Rams are projected to lose veteran safety John Johnson in 2021. While that isn’t as hard hit as many positions, the team will need to groom his replacement this year
53-man Roster: Taylor Rapp, John Johnston III, Terrell Burgess, Jordan Fuller, Nick Scott
Practice squad: Jake Gervase
