The LA Rams find NFL-caliber talent for their defensive line after the NFL Draft concludes. And here comes one more example this week.

The best dogs or cats to have as pets are not always the pedigreed puppies with papers. If you want a family pet that is never in shortage for unlimited love and tail-wagging appreciation, then finding either a cat or a dog at the local pet rescue has never failed to deliver in my life.

I’m a sucker for those big-eyed four-legged bundles of fur, and on many a night when I am left alone early in the morning or late at night with nothing but a cup of coffee and the radio playing, one of our pets is in the room keeping me company.

The LA Rams’ defensive line is constructed on a similar principle. Defensive line coach Eric Henderson certifies each prospect who is entrusted to his teachings and care, and will not willingly place that young defensive lineman to the test until he is ready.

The Rams call for aid. And Earnest Brown will answer

Well, the call has sounded. The LA Rams’ defensive front will face one of the more physical rushing offenses in the NFL, and they are hot right now. The Las Vegas Raiders are coming to SoFi Stadium and with it their 125. 4 yards per game of rushing offense.

The Rams’ defensive line will be without DL A’Shawn Robinson, without DL Aaron Donald, and the Denver Broncos have already claimed promising defensive lineman Elijah Garcia.  Who will answer that call?

I believe that you should get ready to see a lot of positive things from DE Earnest Brown IV. You see, he has been activated for this game.

DE Earnest Brown IV was the 174th selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, a young and energetic defensive lineman who has all but fallen off the radar although he has been on the Rams practice squad for two seasons.  He played 29 games in college, gradually getting better each season. He chalked up 71 tackles, but 30+ of those in just 9 games in his final year. He had 18.5 tackles for losses and seven quarterback sacks for Northwestern, as well as long enough arms to break up nine passes.

The Rams need reinforcements and will get some with the availability of DE Earnest Brown IV. The Rams added Brown to fill the void of departed DE Morgan Fox, a similarly undrafted defensive end who continues to be quite productive in the NFL. Now, it’s time for Earnest Brown IV to step up and make his mark in the NFL.

I, for one, believe that is just what he will do. And I will be thrilled for the positive young man when he does.
