I: Rams offensive line are going to surprise some people

The trick to appearing logical when it comes to NFL analysts is to take what happened last year and just presume that the same thing will happen again this year. It's a simple and effective way of covering all 32 NFL teams and actually sounding as though you had done enough research to know what you are talking about.

But who is kidding whom?

Might the LA Rams offensive line disappoint this season? Perhaps. But in order for that to happen, the Rams will likely need to suffer another outbreak of injuries that decimates the offensive line each week in the 2023 NFL season. That is fairly unlikely. And yet, that is the premise of the current projections for the Rams 2023 Offensive line rankings.

Okay, so what has changed? What is there about this offensive line that will deliver a far better outcome for the 2023 NFL season? In a word . . .


The LA Rams offensive line appears to be set with Right tackle Rob Havenstein, and rookie left guard Steve Avila. While not getting as much press, the right guard position battle is like falling between Logan Bruss and Tremayne Anchrum Jr. That leaves just offensive center and left tackle competitions to discuss.

Now keep in mind that these positions have been 'up for grabs,' in the past, and both Brian Allen and Joe Noteboom retained their starting roles for the 2022 NFL season. But we discovered very quickly that durability for both players leaves a lot to be desired, and until the pads go on and competition heats up, I wouldn't expect much to change.

Even if the Rams make the decision to start both Noteboom and Allen, the team will be forced to carry nine offensive linemen on the active 53-man roster because, quite frankly, they have to presume that one or both players will fall to injury this season.

The LA Rams were caught unprepared for the devastation of so many injuries in 2022. This season, I expect the Rams to end training camp with confidence in at least 10 or more offensive linemen who will either make the 53-man roster or be signed to the 16-player practice squad.
