After the LA Rams seemed to be tinkering with the offensive line configuration far too late into training camp, there were plenty of logical reasons to be concerned. Making it more concerning is the fact that it required nearly an entire two years to fully rehab the LA Rams former offensive center, Brian Allen, from a devastating knee injury. Two years between suiting up, banging pads, calling out blocking, and oh yeah, hiking the football.
Many expected the LA Rams to draft an offensive center. When the LA Rams stepped up to the podium to select their 57th pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, Oklahoma offensive center Creed Humphrey and Wisconsin-Whitewater offensive center Quinn Meinerz were both there on the board.
