VII: IOL Justin Dedich, USC

One of the first practical challenges for the roster is the fact that the team lost three players from the interior offensive line in the offseason, yet drafted just two offensive linemen, while signing a third veteran interior offensive line in the offseason. Yet, one of the drafted offensive linemen is an offensive tackle named KT Leveston.

Fear not, Rams fans. In almost the same way that this team identified and signed a future blindside offensive tackle to the roster in Alaric Jackson, the Rams have identified and signed a mature, passionate interior offensive lineman out of USC named Justin Dedich. And just like Alaric Jackson, the guy is bursting with collegiate starting experience at a vital position on the offensive line:

Justin Dedich is a 6-foot-2 295-pound offensive lineman who is more than meets the eye. He was the guy who hiked the football to the number one prospect selected in the 2024 NFL Draft, QB Caleb Williams. As such, he was ultimately responsible for calling the protections and blocking assignments that kept his quarterback protected. Best of all, he played six seasons for USC.

Assessing the NFL readiness of any offensive linemen is particularly difficult because there is no other group that is as dependent upon one another as a football team's offensive line. As far as Justin Dedich is concerned, he started for one of the nation's most successful teams for four seasons. That type of experience, passion, and maturity is uncommon among college football players. But it is exactly what the Rams are looking for on this offensive line.
