Wide Receiver: Tyler Johnson

Once a promising, young prospect with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tyler Johnson is fighting for his NFL life, now. The Rams have six wide receivers firmly ahead of Johnson, right now: Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua, Demarcus Robinson, Tutu Atwell, Ben Skowronek and rookie sixth-round pick Jordan Whittington.

L.A. also added three undrafted free agents to come in and compete throughout the summer as well. Last season, Johnson appeared in just one game and played 54 percent of snaps, catching two receptions for eight yards and one touchdown. The year prior, he appeared in just two games for Houston.

Tight End: Davis Allen

Tyler Higbee is the unquestioned starting tight end, but Colby Parkinson is behind him as another guy the Rams will probably try and feature a bit. Then, you have Hunter Long, a former third-round pick by the Dolphins who had struggled with injuries but now looks to keep a gig and hopefully his health will allow for it.

Davis Allen, a fifth-round pick in 2023, might make this roster as a fourth tight end. But, the odds of the Rams keeping four might not be too high. As a rookie last year, Allen did come up with 10 receptions for 95 yards and his lone career touchdown.

Offensive Line: Mike McAllister

Last year, the Rams drafted Steve Avila who projects to be their starting center, for now. This year, L.A. went out and drafted Beaux Limmer out of Arkansas in the sixth round, who currently projects to back up Avila.

That would leave veteran Mike McAllister as third in line, and for a position like center, the Rams probably won't need to keep three.
