Los Angeles Rams Roster 2018 Rams Roster

11-3, 1st NFC West

9:05 pm UTC, 12/23

The Rams have built themselves a squad, and they added to it in the offseason. Brandin Cooks was traded from the Rams, and with the offense being very innovative, we are all excited for Cooks in L.A. Jared Goff has his weapon, but also Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have excelled with the Rams. The tight ends are more in for blocking roles, but Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett have been the guys. We know Todd Gurley is going to lead the way for the Rams, but it is always nice to have a contingency plan. They drafted John Kelly late in the draft, but Malcolm Brown is likely the guy to see time behind Gurley. Of course Aaron Donald being on the team is going to make a huge difference, but they also added Marcus Peteres and Aqib Talib. This defense is going to be able to match their offensive in terms of talent this year.

Rams Eyeing the Super Bow in Atlanta

The Rams had a successful first season in their new home of Los Angeles. An 11-5 record and a playoff appearance represented the winds of change for an organization that has been slowly rebuilding. Since the Robert Griffin III trade, the Rams have successfully built a roster of consistent, seasoned, and highlight-reel players. This formula for success is something the team hopes will take them further into the playoffs. The first-round loss to the Falcons still leaves a bitter taste in their mouth and sends them back to the drawing board this off-season.

The Rams got to work early this off-season, showing no signs of letting up. The team signed three big names on defense with the additions of Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters, and Aqib Talib. Placing these talents on a team that finished near the top of all defensive categories this past season is almost unfair to the competition. Each of these guys will slot into their former roles, reducing the need to increase usage roles for current or added players. This creates a good system for the team to work with on a rotational basis. They reduce the number of injuries and keep their players in top shape when performance is required. The last addition came to bolster a receiving core in Brandin Cooks. Cooks is the perfect target for Jared Goff to build a relationship with. He's quick, moves well to get open, and can threaten any defender across multiple areas of the field. He works all over the gridiron, helping Jared Goff add a sense of creativity to his game.

Aside from the major free agent signings, the team still had a draft to attend to in April. The team favored the defense throughout the draft and added some offensive line prospects to work into their rotations. The draft was used to beef up or back-up there lowest owned positions. The key addition in the draft was Joseph Notebloom out of TCU. You can never feature enough protection for a young quarterback, so an additional shield is a welcomed addition.

Above all, this off-season was about acquiring the pieces needed to create a roster that was Super Bowl ready. To do this, the team understood the importance of protecting and improving their assets. A well-oiled machine is only as good as the sum of its parts, placing this mentality throughout the head of all contributors to this squad. The defensive additions open the doors for Aaron Donald to perfect his craft. He no longer has to flex his role to fit the needs of the team and can focus on a set position. This will reduce the learning curve needed to excel as one of the best on the defensive side of the ball. The same can be said for Gurley and Goff. Give them the protection, outlets, and resources they need to focus on the little things can make all the difference in helping them perfect their craft. This newly minted team design benefits all the players participating. The young guys get to learn from some of the league's best and the veterans get to play side-by-side all-star players. This star-studded roster will make a splash within a tough conference and division in 2018.
