Offensive depth (39)

The LA Rams offense was a problem in 2022. The remedy in 2023 appears to be countng out players getting healthy and returning to their former roles. If that is the Rams decision after a solid 2023 NFL Draft landed the Rams as many as two starting offensive linemen, that will be incredibly disappointing.

  1. Quarterbacks (4) - Matthew Stafford, Stetson Bennett, Brett Rypien, Dresser Winn
  2. Running backs (5) - Cam Akers, Kyren Williams, Zach Evans, Ronnie Rivers, Tiyon Evans
  3. Tight Ends (5) - Tyler Higbee, Hunter Long, Brycen Hopkins, Davis Allen, Christian Sims
  4. Wide Receivers (11) - Cooper Kupp, Ben Skowronek, Van Jefferson, Tutu Atwell, Puka Nacua, Lance McCutcheon, Austin Trammell, Xavier Smith*, Tyler Hudson, Braxton Burmeister, Cameron McCutcheon, Sam James
  5. Offensive linemen (14) - Joe Noteboom, Steve Avila, Brian Allen, Logan Bruss, Rob Havenstein, Alaric Jackson, Tremayne Anchrum Jr., Sean Maginn, Coleman Shelton, Warren McClendon Jr., A.J. Arcuri, Grant Miller, Mike McAllister, Zach Thomas

* denotes a player counted in special teams, and therefore not included in the offensive positional count.

The LA Rams offense appears to be the most predictable of the three phases of the LA Rams roster right now. The team returns enough of the offensive core from the Super Bowl 56 - winning roster that it feels far safer to believe that this offense can do exactly what is expected of them: Put points on the scoreboard.

Of course, the pressure is all on the shoulders of the Rams offensive line, which may prove to pleasantly surprise folks this season, or ensure that the Rams have very valuable picks in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft.

Keep an eye on the Rams quarterback position, as the latest rule change allows NFL teams to carry 46 +1 players on game day, as long as the plus one is an emergency third quarterback. I do not know if the Rams view QB Brett Rypien as that emergency QB3, so that's a position worth monitoring
