Even as the LA Rams loaded up during the NFL Draft at their secondary position, they were not done. The team added five more players to the secondary after the draft, a move to ensure heated competition throughout the defense for the duration of training camp
CB Caesar Williams out of Wisconsin joins Logan Bruss as two Badgers to join the Rams roster this year. At 6-foot-1 and 190-pounds, he is likely capable of putting on about 10 pounds of muscle mass, and will likely need to do so. He played 40 games for the Badgers and recorded 100 tackles, six tackles for a loss, and five interceptions. One interception resulted in a pick-six in his senior season.
While not nearly as lauded as his fellow Badger, Logan Bruss, Williams could be a very intriguing prospect for the Rams’ defense. While he can play man coverage, he has played a lot of zone coverage in the Wisconsin defense, a trend that you can expect to continue with the LA Rams.
He will need to improve his physicality/muscle in his rookie season but has the potential to earn a practice roster spot.
CB Duron Lowe out of Liberty is a 5-foot-10 186-pound cornerback who has an added bonus of playing very well in special teams as a kick returner. But let’s start with his role in the secondary first. He’s played in 31 games and chaulked up 74 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, and four interceptions over that time. His pass defense is superb, as he deflected 13 passes in his college play, as well as forcing one fumble and recovering a fumble.
But his claim to fame is not just steady secondary work. He’s a bit of an elite kick returner as well. In fact, he had returned 27 kickoffs for 718 yards and taken two to the house. You can bet that he will get his looks at returning kickoffs for the Rams, as the team would love to have multiple options for the return game to ensure a full season of success.
