Colin Cowherd Puts Rams, Chargers in Top-5 of NFL Rosters

With rookie minicamps and OTA workouts beginning across the NFL landscape, the regular season is drawing closer and closer. And while there are still three months until any meaningful football will be taking place, Fox Sports’ host Colin Cowherd took the time to break down his top-10 NFL rosters heading into 2018.

Both the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams made an appearance in the top five portion of the list. After an impressive offseason for the Rams and a successful draft for the Chargers, Cowherd believes both teams will find themselves in the top-tiers of the NFL next season.

Rams Inspire Troubled Teens on Visit to Ventura Youth Correctional Facility

This Saturday, several current Rams — including defensive tackle Ethan Westbrooks and defensive back Troy Hill — joined a contingent of team alumni to participate in a “Cleats for Character” sessions at the Ventura Youth Correctional Facility in Camarillo.

NFL's Top 10 Cornerbacks for 2018

To go along with several top-ten rankings NFL.com has been dropping over the past few weeks of the offseason, analyst James Jones broke down his rankings for the cornerback position on Monday.

Rams cornerback Marcus Peters was featured at No. 7 on the rankings, while Aqib Talib was listed among those who “just missed” a spot.

No. 7 CB Marcus Peters, Rams 

“The definition of a ballhawk, Peters leads the league in interceptions (21) since 2015, including the playoffs. Only Ed Reed has more INTs (22) in the first three seasons of a player's career in the last 25 seasons. Peters could still use work in man coverage, but he excels in zone coverage, often jumping routes and taking advantage of poor throws. Now that the ex-Chief is in Los Angeles, I'm really looking forward to watching him pair up with fellow new-Ram Aqib Talib under the direction of defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, who should elevate the 25-year-old's game to the next level.”
