7 takeaways from Rams OTAs

By:Cameron DaSilva

Here are seven takeaways from OTAs.

New veterans are already making their presence felt

Pads haven’t come on and there’s no live contact on the practice field yet, but the Rams’ veteran additions are already making an impact. Clay Matthews and Eric Weddle, in particular, have taken on leadership roles, helping younger players on defense.

Weddle has taken John Johnson under his wing and given rookie Taylor Rapp some tips along the way, while also working with tight end Gerald Everett, who he’s covered frequently in practice.

If nothing else, Weddle and Matthews will make everyone around them better thanks to their experience.


High expectations for Brian Allen and Joseph Noteboom

Allen and Noteboom have been taking first-team reps at center and left guard, respectively, and are in line to be the starters at those spots this season. They have some big shoes to fill by replacing Rodger Saffold and John Sullivan, but the Rams are confident they can step up in Year 2.

Sean McVay said the team is “counting on” Allen and Noteboom being able to step in and make a fairly seamless transition from backup to starter, especially with regards to “the language, the vernacular” on offense.

If Allen and Noteboom can succeed as starters, the offensive line will once again be in great shape.
