II: Rams secondary starting to take shape

When the LA Rams traded away All-Pro defensive back Jalen Ramsey, there was an immediate and huge void in the team's secondary plans. After all, the Rams have few returning veteran defensive backs.

This was never going to be an easy or swift process. The LA Rams had some inclination to start veteran defensive back Jordan Fuller at one of the team's two safety positions. The Rams had the slightest expectation to start 6-foot-2 195-pound DB Robert Rochell this season, but those projections became a bit more complicated when the Rams added seasoned 6-foot-2 195-pound veteran DB Ahkello Witherspoon.

Rams secondary starting to settle in

Now, it appears that the Rams have settled in on their 'Star' defensive back to be 5-foot-11 185-pound second-year defensive back Cobie Durant. While there is plenty of work to be done, that appears to be significant progress.

I like this move. I was unhappy with the Rams repurposing their best outside cornerback and forcing him to work a star position that often relied on teammates to cover deep routes. If you noticed, DB Taylor Rapp was not exactly velcro in terms of picking up deep routes from Ramsey.

As long as the Rams are able to start two safeties on defense who are good in run support as well as strong in pass coverage, I believe that the team can be solid enough on pass defense to give the team a fighting chance. While there are many more decisions to be made about the LA Rams roster and depth chart, the coaching staff seems to be both focused and decisive. After all, it's as important to decide who gets the starting role to give them enough time to practice at that role.
