There’s been talk about the Rams trying to find a “traditional fullback”—the gritty, hard-nosed, linebacker-like blocking specimen of yesteryear—as they attempt to go all-in on a ground-and-pound running attack. Cory Harkey has done a decent job of filling the de facto fullback role over the past couple years, but if the Rams could find another player to fill at least some of those responsibilities, it would allow Harkey to provide depth at his natural position of tight end.

That’s where undrafted free agent Zach Laskey comes into the picture. Laskey seems to profile less as a legitimate fullback and more like a running back who occasionally lead blocks, as he accumulated 171 carries for 851 yards and nine touchdowns as a senior in Georgia Tech’s option offense. But if he shows enough ability as a blocker to open holes for the Rams’ runners, he could become a useful weapon in the Rams’ offense similar to former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson, a converted tailback who could block capably but was most useful as an additional running and receiving threat.
