When it comes to the Rams’ new staff and schemes, most of the attention has gone to the offense head coach Sean McVay will implement. But there are changes coming to the defense as well, with coordinator Wade Phillips transitioning the unit to a 3-4 base set.
While having three down linemen and four linebackers in the club’s front seven will be an adjustment, McVay has said the club will remain a one-gap, aggressive, penetrating defense — which is largely what it was under former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. But in a 4-3, the offense knows the four down linemen will pass rush. As Phillips has explained, the difference with his 3-4 is that from play-to-play, offenses don’t know where the fourth pass rusher is coming from.
“It’s a 3-4, but it’s still a nose tackle, it’s still a three technique, and things like that,” defensive tackle Aaron Donald said Monday. “It’s called a 3-4 because, I guess the guys on the side” — outside linebackers — “are standing....
As I'm looking at it with the latest signing lets discuss the depth chart. The only thing IMO that is really up in the air is the LDE and NT and their rotations. I'm not really assigning roles to the CB group just top 3 and backups at any and all position. This is my take on it this is 31 people which is much more than we'll carry for a 53 man roster (likely 25ish).
RDE: Donald, Longacre
NT: Walker, Easley, Brockers
LDE: Brockers, Easley, Trinca Pasat
WLB: Quinn, Fox
ILB: Ogletree, Forrest, Grigsby
ILB: Barron, Hager, Northrup
SLB: Barwin, Thompson, Littleton
CB: Johnson, Jordan, Christian
CB: Webster, Hill, Countess
CB: Robey-Coleman, Gaines
FS: Joyner, Davis, Christian
SS: Alexander, Randolph, Johnson
Seriously, why? Wasn't Hard Knocks and actually watching the games punishment enough?
Okay, some of this will garner immediate disagreement, but hear me out.
I see a chance for this WR corps to be a) among the best in the NFL and b) from a karma standpoint to be a rallying point for this team.
Well, first, let me just say what I'm thinking and then I'll go into why. I think our WR corps could end up being this, presuming we keep six guys.
Josh Gordon, Robert Woods, Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, Pharoah Cooper and Bradley Marquez.
Now, let's go through them.
1) Josh Gordon's talent isn't in question. He's been mad working out and at only 25, there's no chance his skills have diminished. The ONLY question is has he matured and embraced playing and living within the restrictive rules that would be placed in front of him. I think he has embraced sobriety and desperately wants to prove himself. So much so, in fact, that I'd trade a late round pick to Cleveland to ensure that he doesn't hit the waiver wire. Having a squared away Josh Gordon as our #1 would be...
Rejoice friends!!! Many of us, including myself, wanted this one bad.
Will he be like Jeff Fisher and focus on players that have only been property of the Washington Redskins? Will he be like Milquetoast Linehan and just do whatever his defensive coordinator tells him to do or will he be like Steve Spagnuolo and go for one year rentals on players that best days are behind them?
Hopefully none of the above, but if the Rams start looking like Redskin West I’m going to be somewhat concerned. I don’t mind maybe one or two signings, but let’s hope unlike under past regimes the Wunderkind can showcase he is truly beyond his years to not focus on players that are (FOSM) Friends of Sean McVay.
This is also an area where General Manager Les Snead needs to stand up and showcase he’s improved in this area. If the Rams let Trumaine Johnson walk, they will need to sign a significant Cornerback a wide receiver and an offensive lineman and the Rams cannot afford to whiff in free agency like they did time and time again under Jeff Fisher Kenny Britt & Williams...

I don't know who this McVay guy is, he keeps talking about,
but the world "special" sure is getting thrown around a lot

Any predictions on who makes it?
(Forgive me mods if we already have one going)
To keep all things Rams FA-related organized, I figure we have an official thread. It'll be fun to come back and see the progressions in our FA planning... Here's our first tidbit (albeit a few days old):
Let the fun begin!!!
I'm sure Gurley shares some of the blame, as there were times he seemed to make bad running decisions. That being said, it's laughable for any former coaches to call him out when their coaching was unbelievably bad. Do they not remember the first game of the season where the pre-snap motion blatantly telegraphed where the plays were going?
It's purely conjecture on my part, by I'm betting this is coming from either Fisher or Boras to cover for their own incompetence.
Report: Former Rams coaches blame Gurley for his 2016 struggles
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley took a massive step back from his outstanding rookie campaign this past season,...
Despise the man all you want(and yes there will always be an asterisk by his name due to cheating), but the man knows how to coach a winning team. Here he speaks about how he got his defense to improve.
Since Kroenke and Snead have made mention of how they wanted to follow the Patriots plan for success, McVay and Phillips might want to heed his advice.
It's not enough to have talented players on defense. They also have to be mentally able to carry out the game plan. They then have to be coached to play cohesively together.

I am excited for these games. Should both be good matchups.
