V: IOL Logan Bruss

Through no fault of his own, interior offensive lineman Logan Bruss has had some of the worst luck of any prospect to join the NFL in his first two seasons. Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing 309 pounds, the sturdy offensive lineman out of Wisconsin was the teams first selection in the 2022 NFL Draft. And when the team chose him with the 104th pick from that draft, the coaching staff was overjoyed.

But let's not pull any punches here. As much as we have hoped for Bruss to pan out, the track record of his first two NFL seasons is alarmingly underwhelming. I'm not pointing fingers here, but Brusss was struggling as a rookie before suffering a devastating ACL injury that derailed his rookie season before it ever got started.

Bruss tried to bounce back in 2023, but he was fighting an uphill battle trying to get back from injury. He ended up on the practice squad and stayed there throughout the enitirety of last season. He was signed to return on a Reserve/Future contract for 2024. But with a hitch.

Backup center Brian Allen, a veteran who started for the Rams in 2022 but has struggled to stay healthy, was outright released this offseason. He was higher on the depth chart than Bruss by a significant margin. Now with the team loading up in the draft with IOLs Beaux Limmer and KT Leveston, the clues are obvious. It's time to fish or cut bait, and the Rams offensive line has loaded up for a huge push in 2024.
