53.LS: Jake McQuaide


Notable roster cuts:


Aaron Green, Running back – Green is going to be coveted by teams so the Rams are going to have to move quickly getting him on the practice squad.


Brian Quick, Wide receiver – Do not buy into the Quick hype. I believe the Rams are about to shock alot of people with this cut.


Duke Williams, Wide receiver – To me it comes down to Nelson Spruce, Duke and Quick for the last receiver spot. Duke might be more talented but Spruce has been catching everything and Duke has not. I fully expect the Rams to put Duke on the practice squad assuming he clears waivers.


Darrell Williams, Offensive tackle – He made the team last year but this team is more talented and will cause some guys you thought would make the roster to become roster cuts.


Andrew Donnal, Offensive tackle – I think the versatility with Rodger Saffold being able to play right tackle if need be could make Donnal expendable. Isaiah Battle is not going anywhere and unfortunately Donnal becomes the odd man out.


Bryce Hager, Linebacker – It’s him or Josh Forrest… I am picking Forrest as of now this could change.


Potential 10-man practice squad:


RB Aaron Green – TCU

FB Zach Laskey – Georgia Tech

WR Duke Williams – Auburn

WR Marquez North – Tennessee

TE Benson Browne – NC State

OT Andrew Donnal – Iowa

DL Zach Colvin – Bowling Green

DL Morgan Fox – Colorado State-Pueblo

CB Mike Jordan – Missouri Western

S Jabriel Washington – Alabama
