Sorry I have not been able to get to my computer all week as I have been busy with HS and Junior hockey.  I have compiled a list of three players on the rams roster that I think will be worth your attention.  These players are fringe players so there might be a good chance we see them again in the same uniform or a different one.  So without further adieu...

Jabara Williams #52 Linebacker

He is a project LB out of Stephen F. Austin with great instincts and has a relentless motor.  He was absolutely unstoppable against the Colts last week and he looked like a seasoned vet out there.  He has good speed for a LB and isn't to shabby in pass coverage.  However, he was getting the majority of his playing time against the Colts third string, so expectations for him shouldn't be too high.  He can hold his own on special teams which should help him find a spot on any of the 32 teams' final 53.  He has a ways to go to become a starter in the NFL but he could become a solid backup in the near future.  Comparison: David Thornton

 

Dionte Dinkins #30 Cornerback

He was a widely coveted UDFA this off-season especially by Rams head coach, Steve Spagnuolo's former team, the New York Football Giants.  Dinkins doesn't do anything extraordinary, but is average all around.  He is a good blitzer from the nickel or dime package.  He can contribute on special teams by blocking kicks and  returning punts.  He shows good ball skills and will rarely allow his man to get by him.  He is solid in both man and zone coverage and is rarely out of position.  He is an excellent defender of the deep ball and elevates his game to another level in the red zone and on third downs.  He recognizes plays well and seems to now the WR's route before he makes he makes his first step.  He has the potential to become a starter in this league.  Comparison: Charles Tillman

 

Kenneth Charles #72 Defensive End

He was originally a defensive tackle at Stephen F. Austin but he was moved to defensive end for his senior season.  He exploded onto the scene with 16 sacks and 25 tackles for a loss in his senior campaign.  Charles has an explosive first step and has plays the run and the pass pretty well.  He is not incredibly big and gets pushed around if an offensive lineman can get his hands on him.  He has great pass rush ability and can become a force if he learns proper technique.  He is solid on special teams and he is bound to make someone in this league incredibly happy.  Comparison: Osi Uminyora lite
