The Rams let Ndamukong Suh walk in free agency largely due to salary cap concerns. Unfortunately, the only effort the team made of replacing him was by drafting nose tackle Greg Gaines in the fourth round. The Rams have a big decision to make when it comes to the nose tackle position.

Oddly enough, a big part of the decision comes down to whether or not they want Michael Brockers to slide over. The longest-tenured Ram prefers to remain in his position at defensive end, but the team may have no other choice than to move him to the inside and start John Franklin-Myers at end. Franklin-Myers proved to be a capable pass-rusher in his rookie year and was really the only Rams rookie to make an impact last year. If Brockers remains on the outside, look for Gaines to compete with Tanzel Smart and Sebastian Joseph-Day for the starting nose tackle job.
