The Lions currently have Haloti Ngata, Tyrunn Walker, Caraun Reid and Gabe Wright as their top-four defensive tackles, so Rothstein mentions that Worthy would likely need a “superb camp” to beat out any of them.
Rothstein expects Tyrunn Walker to start next to Haloti Ngata with Caraun Reid serving as the team’s No. 3 defensive tackle.
According to Rothstein, rookie RB Zach Zenner has been “OK“, but hasn’t stood out much in camp up to this point. Rothstein adds that there’s a “decent chance” he ends up on the team’s practice squad.
On the subject of the Rams possibly signing former 49ers OLB Aldon Smith, Wagoner writes that it’s “awfully hard to answer right now since we don’t know the extent of Aldon Smith’s latest run-in with the law and what the subsequent punishments will be in a court of law or from the NFL.”
Based on what he’s seen from practice, Wagoner thinks C Demetrius Rhaney has the most upside of the Rams’ current center options, but he may not be ready to handle the position right now.
