2019 NFL Scouting Combine preview

In less than two weeks, the NFL universe will descend on Indianapolis to kick the 2019 NFL Draft process into high gear.

The combine. The underwear olympics. Where prospects are made based on exercises that don’t translate to football and where deals are made simply by putting every NFL team’s coaching staff and front office together in close company.

It’s a beautiful thing.

The 2019 NFL Scouting Combine officially get underway on Tuesday, February 26, but attention won’t really...

Potential free agency additions

There are going to be a lot of quality free agents when the FA period opens. Who could the Rams be eyeing? Let’s find out below.

With the NFL’s free agency period approaching, many veterans are slowly being released and told they wont be employed by their current teams heading into the 2019 season. The Los Angeles Rams are no different, though they have yet to actually cut/let anybody go like some other franchises.

It’ll be tough to pinpoint exactly what the Rams are expected to do in...

NFL.com ranks Rams’ 2018 draft 32nd in NFL

The Rams’ 2018 rookies just didn’t get a chance to see the field much this year. Does that deserve a failing grade on the draft report card?

The Los Angeles Rams were in an unusual position heading into the 2018 NFL Draft.

Having made headlines repeatedly in free agency bringing in top-level talents through trades before adding DL Ndamukong Suh on a one-year flier, the Rams were in the unique position of both being without a single pick in the top 88 of the draft while also not needing...

Rams promote two offensive assistants

After losing former quarterbacks coach Zac Taylor (who was formally announced as the Bengals’ new head coach last week), the Rams are reshuffling their offensive staff.  Shane Waldron will be promoted from tight ends coach to quarterbacks coach, while retaining his title as the Rams' passing game coordinator, according to Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com (Twitter links).  Meanwhile, senior offensive assistant Jedd Fisch will be named assistant coordinator/offense. How much these changes will...

What are the top roster gaps?

The Rams have a lot of personnel changes coming up. What positions should be prioritized?

The Los Angeles Rams face a ton of questions this offseason that can and will change the direction of this team. I’m confident that General Manager Les Snead, Head Coach Sean McVay and the rest of the Rams front office will do everything in their power to improve this team, but the to-do list is a bit daunting at first glance.

The list can be boiled down to a couple of major categories that everyone...

The Rams are due for an OL makeover

The Rams’ O-line was bolstered with the addition of Andrew Whitworth two years ago. Is it time to prepare for his inevitable departure?

Heading into the 2017 season, Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff had a lot to deal with. He had the stink of his rookie season following him around, a new coach in Sean McVay that was going to implement a completely new offense to learn, and he had a crop of new receivers in WR Robert Woods, WR Sammy Watkins, and WR Cooper Kupp.

But there was one person that...

Rams shuffle coaching staff

The Rams have added Wes Phillips to the roster as the tight ends coach. They also have a new position for current coach Shane Waldron.

While Head Coach Sean McVay’s coaching tree continues to expand, the Los Angeles Rams are forced to adjust their coaching staff.

Just recently, the Rams hired Wes Phillips (Wade Phillips’ son) as the tight ends coach, which was part of Shane Waldron’s job prior to Phillips’ hiring. Albert Breer discusses the roles more clearly moving forward:

New MTD mock looks at trades ahead of Rams at #31

With the Rams at the back end of rounds this year, they’re going to have to let the draft develop in front of them.

We got a new Monday mock from Mocking the Draft’s Dan Kadar today that looked into some potential trades ahead of the Los Angeles Rams picking at #31.

It’s a worthwhile exercise because the Rams are going to have to sit and wait it out even if General Manager Les Snead engineers a trade. If they move up, it won’t be far, so the draft is going to take plenty of twists...

But it also offered a chance to begin looking beyond next year toward which teams are best set up for years to...
