  • Updated projected 53 man roster

    Updated 53 man roster to reflect the recent moves (praying of course for no injuries in camp that effect this)

    Offense (26)

    bulger, chandler, smoker
    faulk, jackson, gordon
    goodspeed, harris
    mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
    bruce, holt, curtis, looker, mcdonald, furrey
    pace, turley, williams
    timmerman, mccollum, king, tercero
    wohlambaugh, eby or turner (the other makes the practice squad)

    Defense (24)

    pickett, lewis, kennedy, holsey/brian howard
    little, fisher, jackson, hargrove, flowers/moran
    thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (newsom, spoon, lloyd, trev faulk, justin smith, mcwilliams)
    fisher, butler, groce, garrett
    a williams, archuleta, coady, shivers, lucas

    specialists (3)

    wilkens, massey, nicassio/landetta

    Other guys with a shot, but more likely candidates for the practice squad (unless someone gets hurt)

    nick burley, sheddrick copeland, nijrell eason, brian sump (kick returner)

    Other practice squad candidates- the 4th qb, coleman (wr), anyone else??????

    If Moran gets beat out, he probably gets waived. If brian howard gets beat out, he probably winds up on the practice squad, along with two linebackers and at least one guy from the secondary.

    Any updated thoughts from anyone?

    Rams roster into training camp
    by Guest
    During the ceremony my daughter and I held tonight at exactly 5pm central, as the players were checking in for camp, i did my best public address anouncer imitation for her and recited the entire 53 man roster from memory as she cheered for each guy. I believe that barring injury, the offense is basically set unless sump beats out furrey for a receiver spot in order to serve as the return guy.

    bubble spots- backup linebackers (special teams key). we will carry six, two spots available for tony newsom, spoon, lloyd, justin smith, trev faulk, mwilliams.
    Defensive end- Will moran make the team? I predict no.
    Defensive Tackle _ Will brian howard make the team. I predict practice squad.
    Punter- Will Landetta get beat out? Could go either way.

    Here is what it looks like

    bulger, chandler, smoker
    faulk, jackson, gordon
    goodspeed, harris
    bruce, holt, looker, curtis, macdonald, furrey (sump)
    mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
    pace, turley, williams
    wolabaugh, turner
    timmerman, mccollum, king, tercero

    Wilkens, Landetta/Nicasso, Massey

    Little, fisher, tyoka jackson, hargrove, flowers (moran)
    pickett, lewis, kennedy, holsey (brian howard)
    thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (spoon, lloyd, newson, burley, justin smith, trev faulk, mcwilliams)
    fisher, butler, garrett, groce
    aeneas williams, archuleta, coady, shivers, lucas

    Biggest variable, outside of the backup linebacker spots is injuries. Hopefully, we will make it through camp and the preseason with nothing more than a few bumps and bruises here and there.

    ramming speed to all, as always, i would love your analysis of the roster,

    sign the big man

    The Final 53 Man Roster-Very Few spots available
    by Guest
    Lets take a quick look at what we know about the final 53 man roster. For purposes of this post, lets be optimistic and assume that no one gets hurt before the season starts.

    Offense (27)

    bulger, chandler, smoker
    bruce, holt, curtis, looker, mcdonald, furrey
    mamliamula, cleeland, jensen
    goodspeed, harris
    pace, turley, grant williams
    wohlabaugh, eby
    timmerman, mccollom, andy king, larry turner, tercero
    faulk, jackson, gordon

    Note: I am probably over by one offensive lineman, ie it is likely that turner could be on the practice squad

    Defense (25)

    Little, Fisher, Flowers, Hargrove, Tyoka Jackson, Moran
    Pickett, Lewis, Kennedy, Bell (or another veteran if we dont win the claim on bell)
    a williams, archuletta, coady, shivers, lucas/walton/copeland
    fisher, butler, groce, garrett
    thomas, pisa, polley, chillar, two of the following (newsom, jeremy lloyd, nick burley, jason mcWilliams, Justin Smith, spoon, trev faulk)

    Specialists (3)

    Wilkens, Landetta, Massey

    That gets us to 55, meaning I am two guys over. Probably means one of the offensive lineman (ie turner) winds up on the practice squad, and potentially moran doesnt make it or we dont sign another defensive tackle). Positionally, we carried six linebackers last year so i am assuming that we wont carry more this year, but if we do, someone else will have to get cut or put on the practice squad.

    The practice squad this year expands to 8 players. Candidates include Larry Turner, safties and corners that dont make the roster (ie shedrick copeland), nick burley, possibly michael coleman again at wr, the qb we just signed (micahnah sp?), and especially some number of the linebackers that dont make the team since we will need depth there for special teams play.

    To me, at the margain, the key will be the ability to contribute on special teams. I believe that the most viscious battle will be for the backup linebacker spots since there will be no clear cut answers.

    I defy you to find another team in the nfl that has so few spots up for grabs at this point of the year. I take that as a good thing since i think that our young guys will improve given the year of experience. While we have not added a lot via free agency, we have added some key help in the draft and we have retained some solid young guys.

    I look forward to your thoughts and input as always.

    My Offseason Scorecard
    by AvengerRam_old
    Given that the Rams probably won't make any major personnel changes from now until the season starts, its a good time to evaluate the offseason. Here's how I see it:


    2003: Bulger/Warner/Covington
    2004: Bulger/Chandler/Smoker

    The starter has not changed. Chandler, though not as good as Warner, may be better suited in the backup role as his presence does not create controversy. Smoker is a better prospect than Covington. IMPROVED


    2003: Faulk/Gordon/Harris; Goodspeed
    2004: Faulk/Jackson/Gordon; Goodspeed/Harris

    The addition of Jackson is an upgrade at RB. Harris at FB is intriguing. IMPROVED


    2003: Holt/Bruce/Looker/Furrey/McDonald/Curtis; Manumaleuna/Cleeland
    2004: Holt/Bruce/Curtis/Looker/McDonald/Furrey; Manumaleuna/Cleeland

    Same cast, but Curtis and McDonald are healthy. IMPROVED


    2003: Pace/Turley/Wohlabaugh/McCollum/Timmerman
    2004: Pace/Turley/Wohlabaugh/McCollum(?)/Timmerman

    Other than the possibilty that McCollum might be supplanted by a younger player, nothing has changed. SAME


    2003: Wistrom/Pickett/Lewis/Young/T.Jackson/Little/Fisher/Kennedy
    2004: Fisher/Pickett/Lewis/T.Jackson/Little/Kennedy/Hargrove/Moran

    The loss of Wistrom and Young put this unit in decline, but there is at least hope with the potential of players like Kennedy and Hargrove. DECLINE


    2003: Tinoisamoa/Thomas/Polley/Duncan
    2004: Tinoisamoa/Thomas/Polley/????

    It is uncertain who will emerge as the fourth LB (Chillar, Spoon, Faulk, Newson, Lloyd are all possiblities). But, whoever it is, the depth should be better than last year. IMPROVED (slightly)


    2003: Fisher/Butler/Williams/Archuleta/Groce/Garrett/Walton/Sehorn
    2004: Fisher/Butler/Williams/Archuleta/Groce/Garrett/Shivers/Walton

    Again, not much change. I expect that Shivers will be an improvement over Mr. Angie Harmon, but we'll have to see. SAME


    2003: Wilkins/Landeta/Harris(KR)/Furrey(PR)
    2004: Wilkins/Landeta/????/????

    Unclear who will be the KR and PR. I hope that Groce can emerge as the PR (i.e. not muff punts), as I think he has a lot of potential there. UNCERTAIN


    2003: Martz/Fairchild/Smith
    2004: Martz/Fairchild/Marmie

    The addition of Marmie should not change too much with the defense, other than the weight of the DTs. Fairchild seems to be getting more responsibilities. Too close to call. SAME

    Total scorecard:

    DECLINE: 1
    SAME: 3

    All in all, despite the minimalist approach, a pretty good offseason for...
