I: Offensive lineman
His fortune may have ignited as his teammate, Logan Bruss, fell to injury. But undrafted rookie Jack Snyder has played well enough to stay afloat despite the pressure mounting on him exponentially.
The Rams typically stock up on offensive college tackles, then train them to play at the offensive guard position. But Snyder is a full-fledged interior offensive lineman, a 6-foot-5 310-pound behemoth who can play three interior offensive line positions.
The Rams need depth for the interior offensive line, and Snyder has earned the right to be considered for the role.
The hard work is not over. Because he was undrafted, Snyder began at the bottom of the LA Rams’ depth chart. As we have learned, the Rams are very resistant to promoting a rookie from the ranks of undrafted to a significant role on the offense. But he has certainly earned the right to be considered as a backup at either an offensive guard or offensive center role.
Alaric Jackson demonstrated just how valuable an undrafted offensive lineman can be for the Rams when he spot-started against the Minnesota Vikings and performed very well against a daunting pass rush. I believe Snyder could land a roster spot, but I won’t be shocked if he winds up on the practice squad.
