More than meets the eye
So the scouting staff finally found an offensive lineman who was worthy of a pick by the LA Rams in the draft? That’s too simplistic of an explanation. The talent for potential Rams offensive linemen has been there each year.
The reason the LA Rams finally selected one in the draft and did so with their third pick of the 2022 NFL Draft, is due to the fact that the team had lost the services of C Austin Blythe, LT Andrew Whitworth, and RB Austin Corbett, and was at risk of depleting the talent pool. We know that Alaric Jackson and Tremayne Anchrum flashed the ability to become future bookend offensive tackles in 2021.
And we know that Coleman Shelton makes on helluva backup at the offensive center position. While Anchrum, Shelton, and the yet-to-earn a starting role offensive lineman Bobby Evans lined up to compete, this was more of a Plan B than a Plan A.
Bruss is a step in the right direction to establishing a Plan A at the right guard position. In fact, the Kansas City Chief’s success with rookie center Creed Humphrey may have compelled the LA Rams to follow suit by drafting their projected starting right guard in the 2022 NFL Draft. Oops?! Did I just type that out? We’ll get back to that in a future article. For now, let’s focus on discussing why 5 Reasons Logan Bruss deserved a ‘Pool Party,’ and then we can talk about potential roles for him in a future article, okay?
