I’ve seen precious little praise for the Ram OL play in that Raider “game”. As in zero praise. Lol.

First off you are not going to hear praise for the entire OL because it was put in an impossible situation. An inexperienced group of 5 who had never started together before going against an experienced D front. Plus they kept switching positions. Never in the past or future have you seen or will you see an OL perform well AS A UNIT under those conditions. Criticizing tyhat is like rebuking your 1-year old because he or she has not yet graduated with honors.

In terms of praise of individual OL players, even under those conditions? Oh sure yeah that's pretty common.

The offensive line depth is impressive. Edwards looked very, very solid at LOT. Solid enough for me to believe he will make the final 53 assuming Rams carry 8 lineman.

...Edwards arrival is going to make the battle for the LOT spot when Whitworth does retire very interesting. Think he is ahead of where Noteboom was at this point of season in 18. hmm

OT David Edwards played a bunch of snaps in ?@RamsNFL ? preseason game #1. Shows promise and with continued improvement and maturity, he’ll be looked as a 5th round steal!

Bonsignore

Aside from a holding call assessed to Edwards in the first quarter and Evans getting beat on a speed rush by Raiders defensive end Arden Key for a sack, both rookies acquitted themselves fairly well for their first go-around.

after rewatching quite a bit of that game I think both rooks did a good job of knowing the scheme (they seemed to consistently know their assignments), and where they struggled were the areas Kromer is going to work them.

From that perspective starting with Edwards he had a good game. He was thrown in there at LT first series and acquitted himself quite well, didn’t win every snap but he won a lot of them and more importantly looked solid executing scheme (wasn’t confused or lost at all). Edwards was more comfortable on the edge, so I can see why they said he was ahead of Evans thus far. He did some good things in both run and pass and for that reason I think he is going to factor in as primary depth for us this season.

Gary Klein

Rapp is one of several rookies who made an impression during eight training camp practices. Running back Darrell Henderson, offensive lineman David Edwards, defensive tackle Greg Gaines and cornerback David Long are others.

Edwards needs to get stronger.. but, he did not look out of place at LT.
