Dissecting the St Louis Rams: Offensive Line

by Nic Moody

The Offensive line for the St Louis Rams has been talked about for weeks, and simply, I am sure you are just as sick of reading it as I am writing about it. So I will keep this short and simple for the readers that are. I will just dive right in and see what the starting offensive line has to offer.

Left Tackle: Greg Robinson

Greg was selected number 2 overall in last years draft, so there are some very high expectations for him. Personally, I love what he brings, being a run mauler who has the strength and run blocking ability to push half of the defense line over. Robinson struggled his first year learning the rule book and adjusting to NFL life, but Rams fans shouldn’t fret, as I am positive he will prove why he was taken so high in 2015.

2014 “DARTA”: A Good Sign For The St. Louis Rams In 2015?

By Frank “Dubs”

 

One single statistic from the 2014 season may be the best indicator of a winning season ahead for the 2015 St. Louis Rams.

For the Rams’ 2014 NFL regular season, I kept track of five key statistical measures and how they correlated to/affected the outcome of each game. Although these statistics were quite revealing and informative, something seemed to be missing from the statistical equation in explaining the Rams’ 6-10 record. “DARTA” attempts to fill in some of the blanks.

Rebuilt Offensive Line Will Decide Rams’ Success on the Ground

By Austin Gayle

The St. Louis Rams’ backfield is loaded with young, talented running backs that are more than willing to put on a show, but in order for any of their backs to have substantial success on the ground, the youth within their offensive line must shine in 2015.

According to Khaled Elsayed of Pro Football Focus, the Rams’ offensive line ranked 28th in the league in run blocking during the 2014 season. Coincidentally, the line is projected to have just two of five starters from last year (Roger Saffold and Greg Robinson) return to the starting lineup in 2015.

It wasn’t hard for GM Les Snead to see the gaping holes all along his offensive line, and due to the poor play of his veterans on the roster, Snead looked for solutions in the 2015 NFL Draft. St. Louis used four of its nine draft picks on offensive linemen, and then continued its search for talent after the draft as it brought in two more linemen as undrafted free agents.
