Training Camp battles are heating up across the National Football League, and thus the factors of roster personnel and salary caps are influential in assembling the 53 man roster.

Los Angeles has a couple of players that are worth watching for the duration of training camp. Even though cuts are a difficult time for Snead/McVay to inform players of their release, 31 other teams must complete a similar process. And LA might be able to fill needs within their own roster with external candidates.

Taylor Rapp ($2.54 million)

After one week, Taylor Rapp’s name has not mentioned a whole lot in Rams camp. This may be good or bad news for the 4th year safety. But it seems to be unfavorable considering other secondary players are receiving noteworthy praise: Derion Kendrick, Cobie Durant, and Russ Yeast have all caught the attention of the Rams staff and players. And with Nick Scott likely to earn a promotion, Los Angeles doesn’t necessarily need Taylor Rapp. All things considered; Snead might be more inclined to trade him than outright release. Hot Seat Meter: 6/10

Bobby Evans ($965K)

Bobby Evans is another 4th year yet to receive reports in camp. When asked by media about the starting RG spot, McVay signaled Coleman Shelton and Logan Bruss as the primary names. Though the competition is far from being settled, the Evans experiment inside at guard might be over. Is only other shot then remains at tackle where Noteboom, Havenstein, and AJ Jackson likely secure spots. If Evans can’t beat out Anchrum & Arcuri, he might be as good as gone. Hot Seat Meter: 5/10

Grant Haley ($965K)

Haley is one of the lesser-known cornerbacks in the Rams secondary room. Since his resume isn’t extensive, that might hurt him in the end with Ramsey, Long Jr, Hill, Rochell, and two rookies in camp to beat. Hot Seat: 9.5/10
