Offseason Position Preview: Linebackers

Since he was drafted in 2009, James Laurinaitis has been the spearheaded leader of this defense. He has led the team in tackles year-after-year and is the figure his teammates rally behind.But Laurinaitis’ only fault as captain of some of the worst defensive units in St. Louis history is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The former Ohio State product was drafted in the...

Grade Day: Rams Defense From The Trenches To The Backend

Trenches: A+ The Rams heart and soul. The front four of the Rams is by far its most fearsome unit and should take another step forward toward dominance with the addition of rookie Aaron Donald. The Rams were able to rack up 53 sacks last year with superstar Robert Quinn leading the way with 19. I see big things for this group in 2014, and with Gregg Williams holding the playsheet...

Rams hope to find gold in newest batch of undrafted rookies

Top-5 Incumbent St. Louis Rams poised to break out in 2014

Today’s top-5 list attempts to rank the incumbent rams that are most likely to break out in 2014. While May’s draft will play a major part, it can be argued that any success the Rams plan to have in 2014 will hinge on these players’ ability to do just that. Some honorable mentions include cornerback Trumaine Johnson, linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong, and running back Benny Cunningham...

Glazier Football Clinics yield football knowledge and Dallas Cowboys draft prospects

I consider myself a lifelong learner and I had heard from a colleague that some of the best minds in football get together a few times every year to attend Glazier Football Clinics with the goals of knowledge sharing and relationship building. I had the great pleasure of attending this year’s Dallas-Fort Worth Glazier Clinic for three days this past weekend, and the clinic yielded...

Could the Rams consider targeting a top free agent linebacker?

The Rams finally have shored up the outside linebacker position, which they had long neglected, by drafting Alec Ogletree in the first round last season. Ogletree improved as the season progressed and made enough big plays (six forced fumbles and a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown) to justify his sometimes lackluster pass coverage and occasional missed tackles. However...

Rams' rookie class shows promise

The Rams’ leading rusher, leading tackler, No. 2 pass-catcher, and top special teams tackler in 2013 all were rookies. In order, that would be Zac Stacy, Alec Ogletree, Tavon Austin and undrafted rookie Ray Ray Armstrong. And nearly half of the Rams’ touchdown total — 18 of 38 — came from rookie players. Granted, it takes a minimum of three years to get a read on any rookie...

A case for Ray-Ray Armstrong

As we continue to gear up for free agency and the draft here in our small corner of cover32, we’ll continue to evaluate the fringe guys and their potential to evolve into impact players should they survive the offseason. The Rams will have to make a decision at strong side linebacker at some point, as the two players with the most experience are both headed to free agency. Both...

Fisher emphasizes cleaning up mistakes on special teams

ST. LOUIS (AP) Early in Sunday's game, the St. Louis Rams were whistled for a special teams penalty when rookie Ray Ray Armstrong pushed a defender out of the way and nullified a nice punt return by Tavon Austin. The Rams (2-3) beat the winless Jaguars and ended a three-game losing streak, but can't afford such miscues going forward. Not to mention mounting frustration...

Rams focus on hopefuls instead of draft picks

ST. LOUIS (AP) Jeff Fisher already knows what wide receiver Tavon Austin and the rest of the St. Louis draft picks can do. He saw them at the combine, at their pro days and at private workouts. So seeing them on the practice field for the first time was no big deal. "I've seen him do a lot more in the workouts than he did today," Fisher said Friday. "Nothing...
