The Los Angeles Rams released their first official depth chart on Monday, in preparation for Saturday’s preseason opener versus the Dallas Cowboys.
This depth chart is the team’s first in L.A. since 1994. Here are a few takeaways from the release.
Receivers remain the status quo
T.J. McDonald lasted as third-string
After an arrest for a DUI this offseason, McDonald has not yet got his starting position back.
The safety is also returning from a shoulder surgery that ended his season last year. 2014 fourth-round pick Maurice Alexander leads the USC alum as the current starter at strong safety. However, McDonald has seen plenty of reps with the starting defense.
Tre Mason in the other category
Mason is lucky to see his name on the depth chart, after lots of off-field headlines including recently saying he was not going to Rams camp.
Lamarcus Joyner winning corner spot
Instead, Gaines is third-string. Third-year corner Lamarcus Joyner currently occupies the corner role opposite Trumaine Johnson.
Jared Goff not starting
Thus far, reports indicate that Goff has shown promise but also suffered growing pains. It remains to be seen if Goff can pass Keenum before the first regular season game.
