Latest takeaways from the Rams depth chart

By: Jake Rajala

The reigning Super Bowl champions, Los Angeles Rams, recently released their first depth chart after their training camp has eclipsed. With that stated, I’m going to simply untwine five takeaways from the Rams depth chart.

Jake Funk

The Rams RB Jake Funk (seventh-round pick in 2021 draft), who only accumulated 5 rushing yds last season, should be a lot more involved in 2022. Funk is listed behind a Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. sandwich. He is set to be a FA in 2025.

Brandon Powell

The explosive Brandon Powell is primed to be the starting KR and PR in Week 1. Powell is undoubtedly a vital, unique part of the Rams puzzle. He recorded a punt return TD on only six punt returns in 2021. Furthermore, he averaged 26 yards per kick return on eight kick returns.

Per Rams Wire, Powell injured his knee at mini-camp, but Sean McVay isn’t concerned about the incident.

Ben Skowronek

The Rams showcase the reigning OPOY Cooper Kupp and the fresh, top-tier wideout Allen Robinson. The third starting WR is none other than Ben Skowronek. The 2021 seventh-round pick has a big opportunity in wake of Van Jefferson’s injury. The Rams OC Liam Coen feels like he is a WR that LA can rely on.

Chris Garrett

The former D2 mythical pass rusher Chris Garrett had a developmental 2021 season, but he was expected to be should more involved in the Von Miller-less pass rush moving forward. His outlook is a bit uncertain after he injured his groin. Per Ramblin Fan, McVay stated the following about Garrett’s injury, “those soft tissue things can be anywhere between a couple of days to a couple of weeks”.

Garrett is listed as the back-up to Justin Hollins at this moment. I suspect that he will be in-sync at some point early in season – wether it is Week 1 or Week 3.

John Wolford

The back-up to Matthew Stafford, John Wolford, has seized quite a few reps w/ Matthew Stafford limited via his elbow injury. The former Wake Forest signal-caller is 1-0 in his lone start in the league.
