The second overall pick in the draft will start the season on the second string.
Rams guard Greg Robinson, a tackle whom the team has moved inside, has moved behind Rodger Saffold on the depth chart at left guard, via Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Davin Joseph will start at right guard.
Joseph, who joined the team in May, makes it easier for the Rams to take it slowly with Robinson, who’s still adjusting to life in the NFL, where the playbook and the protections is far more complicated than the offense at Auburn.
Still, it’s a disappointment for the second player off the board to not be starting. If the Rams were able to capture a Mulligan, they’d surely take the quarterback who won’t be starting in Jacksonville.
