If you are reading this, the LA Rams have made their selections in the 2024 NFL Draft. If you want the instant recap and summary of players selected, you can check out our 2024 NFL Draft Tracker where you will find picks, links to draft profiles, instant analysis, and team fits. But even after the Rams fill up with 10 rookie selections, there are more roster spots to fill for the 2024 Rams training camp

NFL teams can carry up to 90 players, and most teams want to reach that number quickly because training camp needs those numbers to be effective.

How many UDFAs can the Rams sign?

The Rams currently boast 63 players on the roster. With 10 more rookies added via the draft, the team has 16 open slots to address via unsigned college free agents in the aftermath. The Rams have signed much greater numbers after the draft in the past. But because the team has made significant strides in addressing huge roster needs already, the shopping list for undrafted free agents is truly best players available and any sparkly player who may have a specific niche or role in 2024.

Even though this team appears to have a formidable roster to craft by undrafted players, don't rule out the fact that the team has been very open to carrying undrafted players on the practice squad and even on the 53-man active roster.

Which positions should the Rams load up on?

Undrafted players are ideal to add roster depth to areas of concern for the team. As such, all defensive positions have to be viewed as places the team will try to address after the draft. Wide receivers, offensive linemen, and even a running back could be wise investments. If an exceptionally valuable prospect tumbles, or if there is a surplus of talented players, they are also wise investments.

Even a camp arm quarterback with development potential makes sense here.

Total players to be signed for 90 man roster (after draft picks): 0

Sam Wiglusz played three seasons with Ohio State before closing out two seasons on the Ohio Bobcats. He stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 188 pounds. He does offer potential on special teams, having served as both punt and kickoff returner.

David Olajiga is a 6-foot-3 287 pound defensive tackle out of Central Missouri. In 2023, he put up 41 tackles, 8.0 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks, He had seven quarterback hits. But the intriguing stat is the fact that he blocked three kicks in 2023

Nouredin Nouili is an interior offensive lineman who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 310 pounds. He is a German native, but who has the size and prowess to compete for a slot on the LA Rams

Justin Dedich is a 6-foot-2 292-pound offensive center who spent years handing off and protecting USC quarterback Caleb Williams. Decich is good enough to offer enough to work with, but so far has not flipped the switch to draft analysts to see NFL starter. But, he did play in a major college football program, and he faced some of the toughest opponents in NCAA football.

Did the Rams find another defensive end who will eventually start for them after the draft? Well, that could be the case for Oklahoma State DE Anthony Goodlow. For starters, the Rams truly want him in the building, as he is getting a $20,000 signing bonus. He stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 283 pounds, but he is a versatile defender who has played as an outside linebacker, defensive tackle, and defensive end. I like his fit at the defensive end. He is exactly the type of hard-working passionate player who develops for this defense. Coach Giff Smith gets another great defensive lineman to work with.

Omar Speights is an interior linebacker who started for five seasons in NCAA football. He has been a productive player, averaging over 70 tackles, 5.0 tackles for a loss, 1.0 sacks, and nearly 1.0 interceptions in each of the past five seasons. He stands 6-foot-0 and weighs 229 pounds, so he is large enough to do will at the position. He is a sure-handed tackler, wraps up and drops with textbook precision.

The Rams have really landed some quality reserves with this year's undrafted free agent class. Washington defensive tackle Tuli Letuligasenoa is another solid competitor. Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 301 pounds, Letuligasenoa has the same size and background as former Rams NT Greg Gaines. He is a blocker gobbler, at guy who takes on a maximum number of blockers to free up his teammates. Even with that unenviable role, he still manages to put up solid numbers, and even shows flashes of a promising pass rush.

Kansas defensive back Kenny Logan is one of the most versatile defensive backs from this rookie class. Standing 5-foot-10 and weighing in at 213 pounds, he is the type of player who can be sent in as a slot corner, a safety, or even as an outside corner in a pinch, and be confident that he can make plays. If the team is looking for a special team returner, Kenny Logan is the guy. He has some experience returning punts, and extensive experience returning kickoffs. He has even returned a kickoff for a touchdown.

Michigan defensive back Josh Wallace competed throughout his college football career. But he joined the Michigan Wolverines in his final season, putting an exclamation point on his NFL prospects. He is a high character guy who has solid numbers and always seems to get his hands in there to knock the pass away. He didn't have the level of interceptions that some scouts wanted to see, but his ability to break up passes is a coach pleaser nevertheless. He stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 185 pounds. He will need to add about 10 pounds of muscle armor to raise his durablity in the NFL, but he has potential.

The LA Rams may be loaded at the wide receiver position, but Oklahoma WR Drake Stoops hopes that therre is room for one more. If he is as productive in the pros as he was in college, that could be arranged. Standing 5-foot-10 and weighing 190 pounds, Stoops is not the guy who will beat you with his size. But he really doesn't need to. He ran a 4.67-second 40-yard dash, placing him in the category of smaller, swift receivers like former Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley.

While there is not a lot of information readily available over Augustana offensive tackle Blake Larso, I know that he is every bit the part in terms of size. He stats 6-foot-6, weighs 311 pounds, and has a massive stretch armstrong reach, thanks to an 84-inch wingspan

Lightly scouted Louisiana tight end Neal Johnson is a very intriguing weapon in this offense. Standing 6-foot-4 and weight 244 pounds, Johnson has been a very effective weapon in college, putting up consistently good numbers.

Tennessee Volunteer DB Jayel McCollough is a 6-foot-0 205-pound safety who may have gone undrafted, but who definitely has the size and the college production to have a shot at a roster slot in the NFL. In 2023, he had 58 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, and three interceptions that included one pick-six. He competed for five seasons against SEC competition. He has the potential to make this roster or practice squad.

I take a great deal of pride in the LA Rams front office and scouting department for the perennial effort to kick over every stone in the effort to find NFL-worthy talent. No matter the result, I applaud their efforts to give Division III SUNY Courtland WR J.J. Laap a chance at earning playing time and a potential roster spot on the team. Laap is 6-foot-0 and weighs 185 pounds. He hails from the Courtland Red Dragons, last year's champions. He has some impressive highlights, and we'll be discussing him at length. He is a fast, productive, and tough-to-tackle wide receiver who piles up the YAC.

Listed at 5-foot-10 and weighing 170 pounds, Washington State Cam Lampkin had the unenviable task of facing three of the NCAA's top quarterbacks, and many more of the top wide receivers. He put up 34 tackles, broke up eight passes, and had 1.5 tackles for a loss for the Cougars in 2023.

Marshall ILB Eli Neal stands 6-foot-2, weighs 223 pounds, and is a multi-functional inside linebacker who could care out a niche for the team. In 2023, he put up 93 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, 2.0 quarterback sacks, two interceptions, broke up two passes and recovered two fumbles. If he can replicate that type of production in the NFL, he has a real shot.

SMU defensive back Charles Woods is wing-footed Hermes in the secondary. Standing 5-foot-11 and weighing 193, he played for West Virginia before transferring to SMU for his final NCAA season. He is a feisty defensive back who plays better when engaged and scrapping rather than defending dirt. He struggles to maintain play awareness without a defined offensive player. Still, he broke up 11 passes in 2023. So he does have a knack of getting in the way of forward passes.
