Linebacker and Special teams
LB Jake Hummel out of Iowa State may not face a lot of rookie competition for the LA Rams, but he certainly has his work cut out for him. He is trying to compete for playing time against Bobby Wagner, Ernest Jones, Travin Howard, and Christian Rozeboom. Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 235-pounds, he is a bit more polished than you might expect from a rookie who was not drafted.
He was very productive at Iowa State, recording 80 tackles in each of his last two seasons with the Cyclones. In his final year, he added a quarterback sack and two interceptions to his credit.
Hummel appears to be a player who should earn a spot on the Rams practice squad, and perhaps more if he can stand out on special teams.
Special teams (1)
PK/P Cameron Dicker out of the University of Texas is a special type of special teams specialist. While having an emergency kicker on the team is a nice bonus, the LA Rams signed Cameron Dicker for his punting prowess.
He was a punter for Texas for less than two seasons, but his 2021 performance locked him in as the 11th best punter in the nation. That all occurred while he was also the placekicker for the team. The Rams believe that if he focuses on punting alone, he could be one of the better punters from the draft class of 2022, a class that boasted multiple notable punters.
That pretty much sums up the LA Rams undrafted rookie free agent signings for 2022 to round out the Rams roster. There may be some additional moves yet to come, but the team certainly added a wide spectrum of young talented players to the roster.
