Reason IV: Austin Corbett 2.0?
Continuity is a real thing in the NFL, particularly when we are talking about offensive linemen and plans for succession. Austin Corbett is 6-foot-4 and 306-pounds. Logan Bruss is 6-foot-5 and 309-pounds. Tremayne Anchrum is 6-foot-2 and 314-pounds. Bobby Evans is 6-foot-4 and 312-pounds. Coleman Shelton is 6-foot-4 and 299-pounds.
There is a reason that the LA Rams’ potential starting right guards have such a tight range for height and weight. It matters. It matters to veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford, who must not only read defensive coverages and his progressions of targets in the passing game but throw the ball consistently over the heads of his offensive linemen and over the outstretched arms of defensive linemen and linebackers.
Logan Bruss not only aligns within that narrow range of height and weight, but his performance at the Reese Senior Bowl was solid enough to earn a shoutout by Director Jim Nagy. That is not an easy thing to earn, but Bruss was given the honor of “Future NFL Starter” by Nagy when he slid inside to the right guard position.
We know that the LA Rams love Senior Bowl standouts. How do we know that? Well, the LA Rams picked another Senior Bowl standout in the 2022 NFL Draft, for starters. I’d call that solid evidence.
