Two Rams Rank Top-5 in NFLPA All-Pro Votes

The Los Angeles Rams have benefited from a number of star powered players this past season, with some receiving recognition for their success by the NFLPA.

The Los Angeles Rams still have work to do to get back to being Super Bowl contenders. However, they do have some high-end talent in several different positions.

The NFLPA introduced its own version of the All-Pro team this year, allowing players to vote for who they think is the best at each position. They were only allowed to vote on positions that either they play or go up against on a regular basis.

Aaron Donald was the only Rams player who made the cut, with Bobby Wagner getting snubbed despite a terrific 2022 season. This week, the NFLPA released the top 5 at each position and only two Rams were ranked.

Donald was the No. 2 interior defensive lineman, only behind Kansas City Chiefs star Chris Jones, while Wagner was the third-ranked off-ball linebacker behind Roquan Smith and Fred Warner. While Jone’s stats were certainly better than Donald’s last season, he also played a full season where Donald only played in 11 games. 

Jalen Ramsey didn’t make the top 5 at cornerback, getting passed over for Pat Surtain II, Darius Slay, Jaire Alexander, Sauce Gardner, and Tariq Woolen.

Ramsey, who has recently been the subject of trade talks, signed a five-year, $100 million deal with the Rams in 2020 and is due to make $17 million in base salary for the 2023 season. 

Matt Gay was also snubbed at kicker, and Cooper Kupp’s injury-shortened season after going down with an ankle injury in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals left him out of the top 5 at wide receiver.
