Yeah - right now Williams is getting a lot of first team reps still. I’ve seen him on the right side as well though.

Noteboom will get his time though once training camp starts.Full lads might to the biggest difference.
MLucas is just a huge dude.
And my humblest apologies for starting a new thread....So let's get this thread to the top, again sorry @BonifayRam anyway Darrell Williams is still young and might have some upside, however, I don't think he can play RT. He's more of a natural LT and against the 49ers was not very good and that's being kind.

Williams has had his moments in Preseason, however, was out played by none other than Pace Murphy a few years ago...Cornelius Lucas showed very well at RT, so we shall see how he plays at LT, but @BonifayRam is correct, he did not show well in Detroit. Overall I still believe they will keep 2 tackles and could go with 10, however, if Lucas does not show well and Williams continues to struggle, they might try Demby at RT to see how he handles it for depth.

Wow - that is really thinking ahead ??

I don’t see it that way at all, & mainly on the believe Kromer seems to have with Williams.
Noteboom is the key!! I could see Noteboom even playing a little guard ? That is just going by how The Rams are practicing & how it seems Kromer is not afraid to think outside the box.

My biggest question is why is Williams eating up so many first team Reps ?

Noteboom is not really standing out.He might be also play a little guard ? Neary is getting a lot of LG reps. Demby has moved over to the RG spot. Inthink Noteboom might have taken a couple reps at RG but total guess right now.

Lucas is the wild card for me.He is being moved around & also was 1st team LT early.
Why he is still not there & Williams is getting those reps ?

This is just keeping an update. Training camp & pads have not even come out, so have at it.I do think Kromer is big on technique & teaching.

Coach your an excellent poster, I guess I just have a hard on with the O”line. So the Williams thing I continue to see different than most. To go back to Murphy, I believe Williams might have been hurt? Why Kromer kept Williams as the only Tackle reserve was scary, but says volumes in his believe(maybe in Brown,Saffold & Hav). I also think Williams is only 24 still ? That is very young for years of experience.

I’m not a big fan of Williams play, but just going off the organization thinking. Did not watch the Niners game.

A thread is thread. Yours makes more sense now. This was more about how The Rams would fill there squad.

I like the draft & I think the back ups have another training camp to get better & prove themselves. It will be interesting how it all plays out.

I have to come clean & straighten my crap up!!

Kromers is changing stuff up !! I think in the end things will work out in an excellent way.

Austin Blythe was getting first team Reps. It looks like Sullivan was not on the grass.

A different look today of

LT ?? Maybe Dunn ??
LG - Allen, C Eldrenkamp, RG - Kolone, RT- Demby !!

It’s 3rd team, but players need to cross train.You sort of can tell when players are cross training up a group though of there value. IMO

Don't read to much into guys running with the ones. Kromer has to see what level they are all at. He has to make his list of "best to worst". He basicly can only see how good they are technique wise. Gotta wait til they put the pads on and make contact.

This is how I see it. I would imagine that OTA's have a ton of confusion involved @ first ...to most all planned practices because of the amount of rookies & new players to the Rams family. I am also sure would try to get some element of smoothness injected into the fray & do that by placing in players who have been here like Williams & Blythe. I would not prefer to run my Whitworth's Saffold's & Sullivan's out there to get a ton of OTA reps......
