Rams OTAs are underway

The LA Rams coaches and players are finally getting to train at the sport of professional football. While the best and more accurate practices occur once the pads go on, Organized Team Activities (OTAs) are critical in that this is the first time for this assembly of players has a chance to work out for and in front of this assembly of coaches.

The most entertaining part of all of this action is that you never know quite what to expect.

Thankfully, both Rams' commentators DeMarco Farr and J.B. Long are back for their annual first take from OTAs, and this one is special. This is the first Rams draft class for GM Les Snead and HC Sean McVay that has the benefit of a Round 1 rookie prospect. But if we want to be truly honest with ourselves, the Rams can consider both OLB Jared Verse and DT Braden Fiske as first-round talents.

Let's turn to the first OTA takeaways from Farr and Long below:

It's crystal clear that this Rams training camp is already running at a more efficient and rapid pace than one year ago. That is a good sign, in that it means that the overall team is making great progress in the eyes of coaches. But what about individual players? I am so glad you asked.
