Bobby Brown III looking forward to having bigger role in 2024

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – For most of his time with the Rams, nose tackle Bobby Brown III's primary role has been that of a run-stopper.

Just like with the rest of the defensive line, though, more will be asked of each member of the position group as it attempts to fill the void created by Aaron Donald's retirement. And for Brown, that means having a bigger role.

"Just being hard on myself, being more detailed," Brown told about his preparation for the upcoming season. "But as far as I how feel, I don't feel no type of way. Pressure makes diamonds."

Brown's production took a step forward in 2023. Despite missing four games with a Grade 3 MCL sprain, he produced a career-high 31 total tackles (four for loss) while starting the other 13 games he played in. He also started in the Rams' wild card playoff game against the Lions, making four total tackles.

Having more chances to rush the passer is something Brown said he hasn't had since high school.

"I've been more of a run-stuff guy since I got to college, even though I had five sacks my last year," Brown said. "Once I got here, I haven't played a third down to rush the passer. So now it's just a whole different world, being able to play my game going to a different world I haven't played in awhile, but it's fun."

Entering the final year of his rookie contract, Brown said he's looking forward to showing he can play anywhere, and also simply be on the field.

"I love playing football," he said.
