Takeaways:

  • LaMarcus Joyner opens up preseason as the starter. I believe this is because he has outplayed Coty Sensabaugh, they haven’t given Marcus Roberson much of a chance to play with the first team and E.J. Gaines can’t seem to stay healthy.

  • While there isn’t a “slot WR” designated it looks like the Rams are calling either Bradley Marquez or Brian Quick their slot guy. Pharoh Cooper’s untimely hamstring injury is in part the reason he is with the third team.

  • Mark Barron as the left outside linebacker has apparently been scrapped from the online depth chart. Barron is obviously going to start alongside Ogletree so there really isn’t much to make of this.

  • Jabriel Washington might actually sneak on the 53-man roster between the way he is playing and his versatility to play cornerback and safety.

  • T.J. McDonald is not starting and that is obviously due to the pending legal issues. Perhaps this is a sign the Rams don’t know or maybe they do know McDonald is in for a suspension from the league.

  • Due to the injury Rob Havenstein is battling he forces a big offensive line shakeup with Cody Wichmann moving to left guard to start in place for Rodger Saffold who moves back out to right tackle just like he did back when the Rams signed Jake Long.

  • This depth chart leaves guys completely off the chart such as notable UDFA’s: WR Duke Williams, WR Marquez North, WR Paul McRoberts and RB Aaron Green.
