As the Los Angeles Rams head into training camp, the competition is fierce, and several players find themselves on the roster bubble. Here’s a detailed look at some key players who need to impress to secure their spot on the final 53-man roster.

Los Angeles Rams Roster Bubble Players

1. Stetson Bennett (QB)

Despite showing potential by winning two national championships, Stetson Bennett’s position as the backup quarterback is uncertain. With Matthew Stafford and Jimmy Garoppolo on the roster, Bennett will need to prove his reliability and readiness to step in if needed, particularly during Garoppolo’s suspension at the beginning of the season. His performance during Rams training camp and preseason games will be crucial. The Rams have carried 3 QBs in the past, but Bennett likely has a short leash with him missing all of last season.

2. Zach Evans (RB)

The running back room is crowded with the addition of Blake Corum and the presence of Kyren Williams, Ronnie Rivers, and the signing of Boston Scott. Zach Evans will need to showcase his versatility and special teams contributions to carve out a niche for himself. His ability to perform in various roles could determine his fate.

3. Tyler Johnson (WR)

With a deep wide receiver corps that includes Cooper Kupp, Puka Nacua, Demarcus Robinson, and promising rookie Jordan Whittington, Tyler Johnson must stand out. Johnson’s experience and ability to play both inside and outside will be tested against younger, more dynamic players.

4. Miller Forristall (TE)

The tight end group is competitive with Tyler Higbee, Davis Allen, Hunter Long, and Colby Parkinson. Miller Forristall will need to excel in blocking and special teams to earn a spot.

5. Logan Bruss (G)

Despite being a third-year player for the Rams, Logan Bruss faces competition from newcomers like Beaux Limmer and experienced players like Kevin Dotson and Jonah Jackson. Bruss must demonstrate his growth and ability to handle both guard and tackle positions to secure his place on the roster.

6. Shaun Jolly (CB)

With a crowded cornerback room including Cobie Durant, Derion Kendrick, and new additions like Tre’Davious White, Shaun Jolly needs to prove his worth in coverage and special teams. His ability to make impactful plays and maintain consistency will be essential.

7. Tanner Brown (PK)

The kicking competition is heating up with the addition of Joshua Karty. Tanner Brown must demonstrate superior accuracy and reliability in both field goals and kickoffs to maintain his position. The preseason games will be a significant indicator of who wins the kicking job.
