Meet The 2017 Los Angeles Rams Secret Weapon

Updated: July 11, 2017

Every NFL team has a secret weapon during a season that will perform higher than anybody else could image. So who will be the Los Angeles Rams secret weapon in 2017? Bleacher Report NFL Writer Sean Tomlinson’s took a look at every NFL Teams secret weapon and choose an interesting player on defense for the Rams in 2017.

“There are times when a low-key signing fills a roster hole perfectly. The Los Angeles Rams’ move to bring in Nickell Robey-Coleman is one of those times. The Buffalo Bills released him in early March. The Rams saw value in him, though, after he showed the ability to be one of the NFL’s best slot cornerbacks.”

“Robey-Coleman recorded two interceptions and seven passes defensed in 2016. Much more impressively, he provided blanket coverage in the slot while allowing a passer rating of just 74.9, per PFF. That ranked second among all slot corners, and behind only the Broncos’ Chris Harris Jr.”

“Coleman should further strengthen a secondary that finished tied for fifth in 2016 while allowing 6.7 yards per attempt.”

Coleman signed with the Bills after going undrafted from USC in 2013. Since then, he appeared in 64 games including 15 starts. The Los Angeles Rams are going to need all the depth in the secondary for the upcoming season as Coleman could provide more than we have originally suspected.
