2. There are far bigger needs on the roster
The Los Angeles Rams have holes on the roster. Even if the front office has addressed some of those holes in free agency, the team does not have long-term options for a lot of the positions in the depth chart, which needs to be changed with the 2020 NFL Draft.
First of all, while the team re-signed Andrew Whitworth, it still needs help on the offensive line. If the line stays completely healthy then it should be serviceable but the depth on the line is concerning, to say the least.
The Rams had the second-worst offensive line in the NFL last season with mostly the same supporting cast. You cannot simply not add to that and expect it to get much better because of health.
The team also needs to make additions at linebacker with the loss of Cory Singleton and Clay Matthews and should look to add depth at both nose tackle and outside linebacker.
Sure, the team signed A’Shawn Robinson and Leonard Floyd to fill those nose tackle and outside linebacker, but those are both short-term options that cannot be banked on. That is what the later rounds are for, to add depth to the position as well as young, controllable pieces that can carry over to next year’s roster.
Not filling those holes will be far more detrimental than running three running backs by committee.
