INSIDE LINEBACKERS

Newcomers: Dakota Allen, Ketner Kupp, Natrez Patrick, Troy Reeder

The Rams’ linebacking corps will look a little different when it takes the field in 2019. Mark Barron had been a mainstay at the position since taking over at the weakside linebacker spot early on during the 2015 season, moving down from his original position of safety.

Both he and Ramik Wilson — who started four games for the 2018 Rams — departed in free agency.

But Los Angeles will have its signal-caller back from 2018 in Cory Littleton, who returns for his fourth season in horns. The former undrafted rookie out of Washington excelled in his first season as the Rams’ Mike linebacker, recording 4.0 sacks, three interceptions, nine tackles for loss, and 13 passes defensed. And he still contributed heavily on special teams, blocking a few punts over the course of the year.

At this point, second-year linebacker Micah Kiser appears penciled in for Los Angeles’ second starting ILB spot. While Kiser didn’t play at all on defense in his rookie season, he was productive on special teams — on the field for 62.7 percent of the unit’s snaps. When in college, Kiser thrice led the ACC in tackles — becoming only the second player in history to do so.
