  • How many players are "locks" for the Final 53?

    Who is a "lock" to make the final 53:

    Here's my count:

    Veterans (27)
    Jared Goff
    Sean Mannion
    Todd Gurley
    Andrew Whitworth
    Rob Havenstein
    John Sullivan
    Jamon Brown
    Rodger Saffold
    Brandin Cooks
    Robert Woods
    Cooper Kupp
    Pharoh Cooper
    Josh Reynolds
    Gerald Everett
    Tyler Higbee
    Michael Brockers
    Ndamukong Suh
    Aaron Donald
    Samson Ebukam
    Corey Littleton
    Marcus Peters
    Aqib Talib
    Nickell Robey-Coleman
    John Johnson
    Lamarcus Joyner
    Johnny Hekker
    Jake McQuaide

    Rookies (5)
    Joe Noteboom
    Brian Allen
    John Franklin-Myers
    Micah Kiser
    Ogbonnia Okoronkwo

    So that's 32 guys who I think are absolute locks.

    I've left out the following players who I are locks provided that they are recovered from previous injuries:

    Mark Barron
    Matt Longacre
    Dominique Easley
    Sam Shields
    Greg Zuerlein

    If they're healthy, that takes the number to 37.

    The next group are "near-locks," who are players that have the inside track to a roster spot:

    Austin Blythe
    Malcolm Brown
    Michael Thomas
    Ethan Westbrooks
    Morgan Fox
    Bryce Hager
    Ramik Wilson
    Troy Hill
    Marquis Christian
    Blake Countess

    That gets you to 47.

    So... if I'm right and all of these guys make the team, that leaves only 6 roster spots (not counting practice squad) for the remaining prospects to fight over.

    My current favorites are:

    Temmarick Hemmingway
    Darrell Williams
    John Kelly
    Tanzel Smart
    Ejuan Price
    Justin Lawler

    Granted this is a pre pre-season list, but you've written off the entire list of UDFA's. Plus we are without a TE who will be a blocker replacing Derek Carrier. The RB spot is pretty bare too. I'm hoping we have Justin Davis as our change-of-pace RB now that Tavon Austin is gone.

    Go Rams!

      At RB, I think that after Gurley, Malcolm Brown is probably going to be the back-up, which leaves a battle between Kelly and Davis for the third spot. Davis' fumbling concerns me.

      Right now, given the makeup of the roster, I think it will be difficult for any of the UDFAs to stick. You never know, though, which is why camp and preseason can be worth watching.
