Rams Special Teams

Return specialists may come down to rookie WR Sam Wiglusz or DB Kenny Logan Jr. Even though veterans are in the mix, either prospect has the advantage of being young and having nothing to lose. After all, the key to earning a roster spot for undrafted rookies is to stand out on special teams, and then slowly work their way to a role on either offense or defense.

Wiglusz had significant experience at returning kickoffs, with some experience at returning punts. At 6-foot-0 and 183 pounds, he has a chance to earn a role returning punts and kickoffs. Kenny Logan has the inverse experience, as he specialized in punt returns, and dabbled in kick returns. Logan stands 6-foot-0 and weighs 205 pounds. He even returned one punt for a touchdown.

Kicker Joshua Karty could be a huge addition for the team in 2024. Cited as an epic kicker who has not been seen in the last five or ten years, Karty was surprisingly the second kicker selected in the 2024 NFL Draft. But however he has arrived, he is wearing The Horns now, and will likely be doing so for the foreseeable future.

Karty is a rare blend of confidence, accuracy, and power. All three are vital to the success at the kicker position. He has been a vital weapon for the Stanford Cardinals, and the plan is to become just as dangerous for the Rams. While rookies can have some struggles acclimating to the bright lights and huge stage of NFL games, Karty seems to be confident enough to handle the pressure.

We know how quickly fans warmed up to Pro Bowl kicker Matt Gay. The same reception is waiting for Joshua Karty in 2024.
