While the Rams offense is pretty well stocked on the 53 man roster, there are some items to discuss here. First of all, longtime running back John Kelly is gone. Despite a late surge at training camp, he failed to remain with the Rams. Neither UDFA wide receiver I thought were doing well made the roster: Easop Winston or Earnest Edwards IV. so who did land a spot?
That is a pretty diverse group. So who will emerge from this year’s practice squad to contribute on the offense in 2021?
Quarterback Bryce Perkins was an undrafted and a bit raw dual-threat quarterback who has a strong likelihood of developing into a special NFL player. The LA Rams are currently carrying just two quarterbacks on the roster. That’s a bit of a gamble this year, as the reasons for any NFL player not suiting up for game day Sunday have multiplied significantly. Perkins is a bit like Wolford, he threatens defenses with both his legs and his arm. With a year under his belt on the practice squad, he will be ready for a larger role in the NFL in 2021.
Center Cohl Cabral was an undrafted player for the LA Rams at a position that the team needs to develop talent rapidly. The Rams are currently anchored in the middle of the offensive line by an impressive resurgence by Austin Blythe. But Blythe is on a one year deal, and the Rams haven’t found “the guy” who can take over there yet. Despite keeping Brian Allen on the roster, the future center will likely be Cabral. He is a road grader, and working with OL coach Aaron Kromer for a year will make him an ideal player for a starting role in 2021.
