Charles Williams

Rams Waive 2017 Draft Pick

The Rams released 2017 draft pick Sam Rogers on Tuesday morning, per a team announcement. Running back Lenard Tillery was also waived and the team signed undrafted defensive tackle Dalton Keene and UDFA safety Charles Williams to take their places on the roster. 

The fullback made a name for himself at Virginia Tech with his aggressive playing style. The Rams saw him as a tough, versatile player who could contribute on special teams. Last year, he missed the final cut but spent the year on the practice squad. This year, he apparently couldn’t cut it in camp.

The addition of Keene and Williams gives the Rams 16 undrafted rookies on their 90-man roster, plus eleven draft picks. With Rogers out of the picture, the Rams do not have any fullbacks under contract. At running back, the Rams have Todd Gurley, Malcolm Brown, Justin Davis, sixth-round rookie John Kelly, and Kent State UDFA Nick Holley.
