Here’s the problem with that assumption: Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips runs a lot of 3-4 looks, and three of last year’s four starting linebackers—Alec Ogletree, Connor Barwin and Robert Quinn—are gone. Mark Barron remains, but the Rams have to figure out who their other three starters will be.
Los Angeles added four linebackers—Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Micah Kiser, Trevon Young and Travin Howard—in the draft. It also has veterans like Cory Littleton, Ramik Wilson and Bryce Hager on the roster.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
Head coach Sean McVay recently praised some of the veteran linebackers, but he also cautioned that veteran status would not guarantee a starting job.
“By no means are they ahead of anybody else,” McVay told Myles Simmons of the team’s official website. “Those guys have kind of earned the right to be the ones that are taking those first few reps and then we’ll see based on how they accelerate or how they perform.”cheap nfl nike jerseys from china
