2023 NFL Power Rankings: Los Angeles Rams

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 13 roundup for the Los Angeles Rams in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 16

The Rams' offense has had its ups and downs this season -- especially when QB Matthew Stafford and RB Kyren Williams were injured -- but showed its potential Sunday against the Cardinals, when it scored 37 points. On the flip side, the Rams lost several veterans on the defensive side of the ball during the offseason, opting to go with a young defense this year. The group has taken strides this season under defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, but it still has room to grow. -- Sarah Barshop

NFL.com -- Rank: 22

There's a glut of five- and six-win teams in the NFC right now, all jockeying for what will probably be two available wild-card spots (presuming the 10-1 Eagles or 8-3 Cowboys will take one), and the Rams are right back in the thick of it. It has been a strange season for sure, but the return of Kyren Williams and the unexpected breakout game from Tyler Higbee (after it was thought he might not play) on Sunday gave the offense the boost it needed. The Rams' defense had one of its finest efforts, and even against the Cardinals, that had to be a confidence-boosting performance for a group that's been put through the ringer a few times. There are two whopper road games left -- at Baltimore and San Francisco -- but the other four are winnable, beginning with Sunday's game against a Browns team that could be starting Joe Flacco.

2023 NFL Predictions: NFC West

Before the start of the season, we will post NFL division-by-division predictions for the 2023 NFL regular season and postseason.

Instead of projecting an outright winner and loser in all 272 regular-season games, we've assigned a win probability to each team in every game and totaled them up.

The four NFC West teams are projected to win the fewest games combined in our 2023 full-season projections.

Matthew Stafford: There were concerns with Stafford and his elbow heading into the 2022 season, and the veteran quarterback managed to appear in only nine games due to a spinal cord contusion. Stafford threw 10 touchdowns (3.3 TD%, his lowest since 2012) and eight interceptions and averaged 6.9 yards per attempt (lowest since 2018) with an 87.4 passer rating (lowest since 2014). If Stafford can stay healthy in 2023, how close will he be to the 2021 version who led the Rams to the Super Bowl?

Los Angeles Rams Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our Los Angeles Rams Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Los Angeles Rams from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Los Angeles Rams:

EDSFootball - Kevin Hanson (5/9)

4. Olu Fashanu, OT, Penn State

Many expected Fashanu to be the first offensive tackle off the board in 2023 before he announced he was returning to Penn State. While Notre Dame's Joe Alt is in the mix to be the OT1, Fashanu has an impressive combination of size, length, power and athleticism to become a franchise left tackle.

CBS Sports - Josh Edwards (5/8)

11. J.T. Tuimoloau, EDGE, Ohio State

The Ohio State rusher does as well as anyone getting his hands in pass lanes.

ESPN - Todd McShay (5/4)

12. Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame

The Rams? In Round 1? They haven't been here since they took Jared Goff in 2016! It's a team with a lot of needs, and I'm sure we will be talking about the quarterbacks in the class for Los Angeles over the next 12 months, too. Matthew Stafford has a big contract, but he's 35 years old and only played nine games last season. What about his protection, though? Only two teams allowed more sacks than the Rams' 59 last season, and while Steve Avila (a 2022 second-round guard/center) will help, bringing in someone like Alt to team up with Joe Noteboom and Rob Havenstein would be smart. Alt is massive at 6-foot-7 and 317 pounds, and he "blew" just six total blocks (pass protecting and run blocking combined) across 866 snaps last season.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/2)

9. Kool-Aid McKinstry, CB, Alabama

A tall, long corner who can run, McKinstry not only has a fun first name, but he also put strong play on his 2022 tape. He tied with Emmanuel Forbes — just selected No. 16 by Washington — for the SEC lead in passes defended (16) last season.
