I: Oklahoma State DE Anthony Goodlow

The LA Rams streak of starting undrafted defensive ends has been going on for some time with this team. DE Morgan Fox was undrafted, yet earned the right to start for the defense. So too did DE Jonah Williams arrive after the draft, yet started at defensive end for the team in 2023. Will that tradition continue?

It very likely could turn out that way once more.

After the draft concluded, the team scrambled to sign Oklahoma State defensive end Anthony Goodlow to the roster. In fact, the team was so eager to do so that they signed him with a $20,000 signing bonus. So what about Anthony Goodlow is so vital to this team?

Well, for starters, he had a solid performance at the Hula Bowl, an annual competition set up to pit the best college players against one another:

But there is so much more to him than one game. Goodlow stands 6-foot-4, weighs 283 pounds, and is a versatile defensive lineman who can stuff the run as well as put pressure on the quarterback. He recorded 42 tackles, 7.0 tackles for a loss, and 3.0 quarterback sacks in 2023. He can slide to multiple defensive lineman positions, and has the type of work ethic that will get him high praise from new DL Coach Giff Smith.

With only Desjuan Johnson returning as defensive end for the team, the Rams have plenty of opportunity for Anthony Goodlow to not only make this roster, but to earn playing time in 2024.
