10 Observations from Rams minicamp

Myles Simmons

1) Less of an observation, more of a programming note — head coach Sean McVay announced that he decided to hold only one mandatory minicamp practice on Tuesday. It was a shortened, lighter session — particularly for the starters. In his press conference, McVay said he felt the Rams had gotten good work and good attendance throughout the offseason program, which was why there wasn’t necessarily a need for more practices later this week.

2) Defensive tackle Aaron Donald was not at practice, but McVay said the Rams and the star defender had worked that out beforehand. The head coach noted it was “a special exception,” but there was no problem with Donald going back to Pittsburgh for a family situation after the two-time defending AP Defensive Player of the Year took care of all necessarily team obligations on Monday.

3) It was hotter than it had been over the course of the offseason program in Thousand Oaks, with temperatures approaching the mid-90s for the midday practice. The Rams compensated for that by mixing in a few more water breaks throughout the time the club was on the field.

4) Before the session began, quarterbacks and centers were working on their snaps toward the far side of the field. Second-year offensive lineman Jamil Demby was among the snappers. As a sixth-round pick, last year Demby was more cross-trained as a guard and tackle. But as run game coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron Kromer noted on Tuesday, Demby has been taking snaps at all five positions during this offseason program, increasing his versatility.
