Who should return next season

The LA Rams have a solid complement of offensive linemen who will return to the team’s active roster for the 2023 NFL season. While many fans experience the out-of-sight, out-of-mind phenomenon, the Rams thee players who have not earned a starting role out of the gates will all be competing for playing time next season. From what we witnessed from Alaric Jackson, all three could be as gifted if not moreso than any rookie offensive lineman prospect who may be on the draft board when the team makes selections in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Logan Bruss, Interior Offensive Lineman, IR, will return for 2023
Rookie offensive lineman Logan Bruss was touted on draft day as a young prospect who could compete for a starting spot along the Rams’ offensive line. But he struggled in the preseason for the team, and ultimately injured his ACL and MCL, effectively ending his season before it ever began.

Tremayne Anchrum Jr., Offensive Lineman, IR, will return for 2023
The LA Rams lost offensive center Brian Allen after Week 1. That triggered a series of moves along the Rams roster, RG Coleman Shelton to center, and sliding Tremayne Anchrum Jr. in at the right guard position. That lasted all of two offensive snaps until Anchrum came up hobbled with a broken ankle. That injury ended his season.

Alaric Jackson, Offensive Lineman, IR, will return for 2023
Alaric Jackson has been one of the bright spots of the Rams’ offensive line this season, which is particularly impressive since he never heard his name called in the NFL Draft. Jackson flashed significant NFL talent when he played in one game during the 2021 NFL season against the Minnesota Vikings. This year, he’s started in six games, played 422 offensive snaps, committed two penalties, and allowed just one quarterback sack. He’s been shut down for the rest of the season after developing unexplained blood clots.
