From the moment that the LA Rams failed to re-sign offensive center Austin Blythe, the unofficial social media shopping list for football positions to add to the cart during the offseason has not only included offensive linemen, but it has prioritized it. Perhaps no other position for the LA Rams gets as little true respect from fans as the offensive line.

But are the LA Rams in dire need of new blood on the offensive line to start the season? I mean, by the end of the NFL season, and heading into the playoffs, the Rams had lost Joseph Noteboom, Andrew Whitworth, and David Edwards. For the playoffs, Edwards was out and Evans was promoted to left guard, Whitworth was starting despite playing at 60-70 percent. And that was what the LA Rams fielded to enter the playoffs.
