The Los Angeles Rams’ 2016 undrafted free agent class

The Los Angeles Rams wasted no time in selecting their undrafted free agent draft class. So far, the have a total of 20 young athletes, hungry for an opportunity to crack the roster or practice squad:

New Mexico State cornerback Winston Rose

This pickup will fly under the radar, but don’t be shocked if Rose makes the roster with the Rams thin at cornerback; the potential of his athleticism could blossom into a solid contributor.

Tennessee safety Brian Randolph

The Rams have a need at safety and Randolph has potential, but dropped dramatically after sustaining a torn ACL and having a disappointing season last year due to a nagging shoulder injury while with the Volunteers.

Tennessee wide receiver Marquez North

North has great size, decent speed and potential, but injuries plagued his collegiate career which made him appear inconsistent at times.

TCU running back Aaron Green

Green is the pure definition of a scatback, and he showcases the majority of skills by rushing the outside edges.

Pittsburgh linebacker Nicholas Grigsby

Grigsby has the heart and athleticism to play in the NFL, but his size is a concern for the next level.

Iowa defensive back Jordan Lomax

If kept on the roster, it’s for special teams purposes since Lomax is an effective tackler and values hitting hard. He doesn’t have much to offer in coverage.

Northwestern State offensive tackle Pace Murphy

Pace has potential to serve as depth or to make the practice squad, but the real value is his body frame and workhorse mentality.

Texas A&M kicker Taylor Bertolet

Nothing wrong with a little competition for Greg Zuerlein, especially since Bertolet was known for making 50-plus yard field goals at Texas A&M.

Kentucky offensive tackle Jordan Swindle

Jordan Swindle great size and decent footing, but he needs to play lower and get much stronger if he wants to compete on the NFL level.

Colorado State-Pueblo defensive end Morgan Fox

Fox has the size to make it on the NFL level, but coming from smaller school and subpar technique caused him to go undrafted.

Missouri Western cornerback Michael Jordan

Other than being named after the greatest to play basketball, Jordan has adequate size, but his biggest issue was playing for a small school.

Southeast Missouri wide receiver Paul McRoberts

McRoberts has the makings of being a decent receiver prospect, but film showing him taking plays off allowed him to go undrafted.

Wake Forest linebacker Brandon Chubb

Chubb is one of the better all-around linebackers to go undrafted, but he is a bit undersized.

Colorado wide receiver Nelson Spruce

Spruce is a possession receiver who has great hands, but he will struggle on the next level creating separation against NFL secondaries.

Washington State linebacker/fullback Kache Palacio

Palacio has great size and did well while at Washington State, but he isn’t the fastest linebacker or fullback on the field.

Nevada defensive end/linebacker Ian Seau

He has big shoes to fill being the nephew of the late, great Junior Seau, but Ian Seau does have great football intelligence. However, Seau is still the definition of a project player.

Washington linebacker Cory Littleton

Littleton plays with a motor and has great size, but his tackling mechanics needs some refining.

Arkansas safety Rohan Gaines

Gaines often pursues ball carriers relentlessly and will make them pay with a hard hit, but his covering skills are a bit shaky.

Vanderbilt linebacker Darreon Herring 

An intelligent, natural born leader with a knack for tackling, Herring still lacks skills when dropping back in coverage.
