The St. Louis Rams appear to have a pretty strong roster headed towards the NFL Draft. Which is a pretty great thing for Rams fans. It’s been quite some time since the Rams roster looked to be a solid combination of youth AND experience.
We’ve seen the youth take over the last few seasons. It seems that every year, the Rams top running back is a rookie with Daryl Richardson, Zac Stacy, and Tre Mason all having strong rookie campaigns. Daryl Richardson has since left the Rams, but the other two remain on the roster and could have a big impact.
A big issue with the St. Louis Rams for the last few years is this word “potential”. The Rams roster is loaded with “potential”, but what does that really do? Honestly it does nothing. Potential doesn’t win games. On the other hand, talent does win games. Talent is something that the Rams do not lack.
I have picked out five St. Louis Rams players who have had the “potential” label slapped on them who are ready to translate that into cold hard production for the Rams in 2015. These are players who may have had strong periods of their career or brief flashes. Something tells me that there’s only so many years that can go by before these players explode onto the scene and make their first career Pro Bowl appearance.
I’ve put them in a ranked order to make it easier who to keep an eye on this season.
Let’s get started shall we?
