Undrafted Scouting

Via the list below posted by Jeff, let’s take a look at some of the Rams undrafted signees that have a legitimate shot at making the team, with some scouting data provided by NFL.com:


Roger Allen, OG:

Allen has a good upper strength and is able to secure the inside of the line. He has enough quickness to shift from outside to inside during the play, and possesses deceiving quickness in his technique. He gets low to block on the run, and has excellent work ethic. Unfortunately, he isn’t much of a pass protector and can get beat easily if the QB needs time to throw. As a junior, he was rated as the third best blocker in Div. II schools and as a senior was rated as #1. He secured three All-MIAA first-team honors while playing, including the MIAA Freshman of the Year award. NFL Draft Report rated him as the best offensive lineman (any position) for small colleges. From the looks of things, the Rams have an intriguing prospect, who, with some good coaching, could be a contributor, possibly a massive steal and a starter.

Dominic Douglas, LB:

Douglas has a good frame, and he can use it to gain more strength (which is needed). Good work ethic, and is ferocious in getting to the ball carrier. Good tackler and good reader that can explode quick enough to get into the holes and swarms the ball. Has an excellent attitude and he is a natural leader. On the flip side, he needs to add strength to be effective at MLB, which is his natural position. He also isn’t fast enough to play coverage against receivers, and should be able to contribute to special teams should he make the team.

Ray Feinga, OG:

Ray is a big boy, but has enough quickness to get an edge over the defender. He’s a nasty player who uses his strength and size to defend well against the pass (he put up 30 reps at 225 lbs at the combine). Unfortunately, he’s inconsistent, which made him struggle against in faster players. Isn’t much of a run blocker even though he has the size to be effective. With good coaching, he could easily develop into good depth.

Kirston Pittman, DE:

Pittman is a smart player who uses it to his advantage. He’s always going to chase the quarterback thanks to his good work ethic, but he doesn’t have very good strength. He’s basically just average in strength, fluidity and speed. Might be able to make the practice squad.

Phil Trautwein, OT:

He has good quickness, and can play the pass effectively. He is big, but also quick, and was a first team All-SEC player and team captain. He plays too tall though, and has trouble sustaining blocks because he does not use his hands effectively. He could provide depth or a practice squad spot.

    Sounds like a good pickup for the Rams.
