Los Angeles Rams Depth Chart: Six new starters on defense**
Free agency and the 2018 NFL Draft have come and past and moving forward, OTA’s and minicamps will begin to take place around the league. And as we get closer to the regular season, ESPN.com is analyzing the depth charts for all 32 teams.
Here’s a preview of the depth chart for the Rams — as broken down by Alden Gonzalez — beginning with offense:
Quarterback (3): Jared Goff, Sean Mannion, Brandon Allen
The Rams need to find out a little bit more about Mannion, a third-round pick in 2015 who has thrown 50 regular-season passes in the NFL. Mannion can be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. Do the Rams like him as a long-term backup for Goff?
Running back (3): Todd Gurley, Malcolm Brown, John Kelly
Among running backs, only Le'Veon Bell took more snaps than Gurley last season. There isn't a whole lot of room for others to step on the field here, but Kelly, who was just taken in the sixth round out of Tennessee, has a chance to carve out a role as a pass-catching running back.
Wide receiver (5): Brandin Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Josh Reynolds, Mike Thomas
No team ran more three-receiver sets than the Rams last season. Given the Cooks addition, that probably won't change in 2019. Coach Sean McVay loves his starting trio of wide receivers. Reynolds and Thomas profile as deep threats, but they're still developing.
