Will the Rams edge position have Rams fans on edge this season?

Farr talked about the LA Rams' outside linebacker position, and shared that his two top players to keep on your radar are rookie Byron Young, who is incredibly swift and powerful, as well as second-year outside linebacker Daniel Hardy. Per Farr:

"It would be nice if he (Daniel Hardy) became a starter who is productive. That would solve a lot of problems."

He is 100 percent correct. While Michael Hoecht is clearly the right guy to have at the position on passing plays, the Rams need starters at the outside linebacker position who can set the edge, stuff the run, defend the pass, and rush the quarterback. Right now, the Rams are looking for starters, and the fine eye of D'Marco Farr is already impressed with Young and Hardy.

Farr also comments on the fact that the Rams are looking for an inside linebacker to line up next to starter Ernest Jones, and the field is wide open.

Other notes

Stafford was cited as throwing 60 yard lasers on the field. A year ago, Stafford was not throwing. Signs of positive things to come? I think so. And speaking about quarterbacks, QB coach Zac Robinson was cited as working closely with backup quarterback Stetson Bennett. It was Robinson who gave Baker Mayfield the crash course off the plane a year ago that enabled Mayfield to lead the Rams offense with no prep time.

Offensive linemen who were noted were Brian Allen at center, Logan Bruss at offensive guard, and Tremayne Anchrum at offensive guard. Are these just snapshots of a dynamic offensive line process? If that is the plan, I already have concerns, but we can table those for the time being.

Louisville. Tiyon Evans. UDFA. player. 51. NFL Draft Profile. Running back. NFL Draft Buzz

Finally, one of the running backs who both J.B. Long and D'Marco Farr were eager to mention is former Louisville running back Tiyon Evans. He was a former quarterback who signed with the LA Rams after the 2023 NFL Draft. He was projected to be a late Day 3 prospect, but due to the depth ar running back, the LA Rams were able to sign him as an undrafted rookie free agent.

Tiyon Evans is listed on the Rams roster at 5-foot-11 and 210 pounds. the intrigue that I noticed is the fact that he played one season for the Tennessee Volunteers, and then followed that up with an even better performance for the Louisville Cardinals.

While the path to earning a roster spot is steeper for undrafted rookies, Tiyon Evans has a shot at sticking with the LA Rams this season. He runs hard, is a dangerous receiver, and can give defenses nightmares if he gets the ball in his hands in open space.

Trending. NFL delays decision on this curious rules change. How will it impact the LA Rams?. dark

LA Rams running back coach Ron Gould seems to have already made an impact on this running back position. I believe the Rams group could be the most competitive and complete 'group' since Sean McVay has been hired as the LA Rams' head coach. While RB Todd Gurley is the pinnacle of Rams running backs under Sean McVay, this year's group seems more competitive and talented as a whole.
