The Rams are back in L.A., and the team that once again calls Southern California home has its first depth chart.
To no surprise, the first overall pick in the 2016 draft isn’t the No. 1 quarterback. Case Keenum is listed as the starter, with Jared Goff as the primary backup. Sean Mannion is No. 3, and camp arm Dylan Thompson currently sits at No. 4.
Terrell Owens recently said he doesn’t know who the team’s receivers are. The Rams have named Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin as the starters. The second-stringers are Brian Quick and Bradley Marquez.
Rookie fourth-rounder Pharoh Cooper, a candidate to be the starting slot receiver, appears on the third string with fellow rookie Michael Thomas. In the dreaded “other” category are Deon Long and Nelson Spruce.
The Rams have a pair of tight ends in their starting lineup: Lance Kendricks and Cody Harkey.
On defense, 2014 second-rounder Lemarcus Joyner inherits the starting job that previously went to Janoris Jenkins. Also, the starting defense omits a left outside linebacker, listing Mark Barron as a third starting safety.
