St. Louis Rams: 5 Undrafted Rookies with Best Chances to Make the Roster

Since Jeff Fisher and Les Snead took over the management of the St. Louis Rams’ personnel in 2012, the organization has given plenty of chances to undrafted free agents. Fisher, a former seventh-rounder himself, seems to identify with the players who come into camp as underdogs and put it all on the line to earn a roster spot. Over the three years that Fisher and Snead have been in charge, the Rams have had a total of 13 undrafted rookies make their opening 53-man roster out of training camp, and several of them, including starting safety Rodney McLeod, core special-teamer Daren Bates, and quarterback Austin Davis, who started for much of 2014, have ended up playing key roles down the road.

Now that the Rams have accumulated a rather significant group of players that the Fisher/Snead administration has drafted, it might be a bit tougher for undrafted rookies to force themselves onto the roster. (Then again, we would have thought the same thing last summer after the Rams drafted 11 players, but four undrafted rookies ended up making the team while the last five draft picks didn’t.)

Here are five undrafted rookies who might have an edge when it comes to making the roster this season.
