Rams offense

While the Rams are all but set on the offensive side of the football, several rookies deserve to be mentioned. While not all will be starters from Day 1 this season, there is ample depth just in case untimely injuries beset the team this season. While depth is the primary benefit to the team this year, there is always the chance that one or two surprises will stand out in training camp.

IOL Beaux Limmer is country-strong and a fireplug at any of the three interior offensive lineman positions. While he is unlikely to earn a start this year, if any of the three interior offensive linemen fall to injury, Limmer is good enough to make it very difficult for them to reclaim their starting role.

WR Drake Stoops is an undrafted wide receiver who has a chance of sticking on the Rams roster. He is the son of former Oklahoma Sooners HC Bob Stoops. Because Drake Stoops is a football legacy, his ability to understand offenses and what is asked of him will be accelerated throughout training camp.

And his father believes that is an ideal fit for the Rams offense.

WR Jordan Whittington is an under-the-radar wide receiver who is a custom fit for this offense as well. While many fans look to the guys who put up the most yardage and touchdowns, Whittington's early contributions will be doing the less sought-after tasks on this offense. While the fans may not notice his willingness to do the dirty work, the coaching staff will love his proficiency to block, run decoy routes to clear out holes in the secondary, and perhaps even run with the football.

RB Blake Corum puts nasty and unstoppable back into the Rams running back room. While I lean to bigger backs, the Rams continue to ignore those pleas. Perhaps Blake Corum is the ideal compromise? While he stands 5-foot-8 and weighs 213 pounds, he has a muscular physique that rivals that of Mighty Mouse. That does not seem to impact his speed nor his elusiveness.

I see Corum making an early impact on the Rams offense, and splitting the workload with teammate Kyren Williams this season. Could the Rams be positioned for two running backs who put 1000+ yards apiece? While it's unlikely, this offense has never been so well positioned to do so under Head Coach Sean McVay.
