Saturday night, the Los Angeles Rams will wrap up their 2023 preseason by taking on the Denver Broncos.

It will be the last chance for several Rams players to make an impression and hopefully stick onto the final roster, which will be revealed Tuesday when every team is required to cut down to 53 names.

As we go into that final preseason matchup and have an eye on cutdown day, though, there are four players we can confidently say won't make it through to a roster spot.

1. Lance McCutcheon, WR

Wide receiver has been under a spotlight ever since Cooper Kupp's injury, as there have been a few players with a huge opportunity to step up and prove they can contribute in his absence. Lance McCutcheon, though, has been outshined by a rookie fifth-round pick, Puka Nacua, who will likely end up making the final roster over the veteran.

Los Angeles will probably end up keeping the following: Cooper Kupp, Tutu Atwell, Van Jefferson, Ben Skowronek, Demarcus Robinson and Puka Nacua. That gives them six wide receivers, with a potential for the Rams to keep seven. If they do add a seventh to that final squad, my money is on former Golden Gopher Tyler Johnson, who has had some bright moments during camp and the preseason.

McCutcheon suited up for 10 games last season and had five targets, but failed to catch any of them. The Montana State product could be a candidate for the practice squad if he makes it through waivers, which would give the Rams an experienced possible replacement within their receiver room should they experience an injury.
