    The Rams have 21 white players on their active roster to start the 2017 season. That may be the highest number in the league.

    QB - Jared Goff, Sean Mannion, Brandon Allen
    WR - Cooper Kupp
    TE - Tyler Higbee, Derek Carrier
    OL - Austin Blythe, J.J. Dielman, Andrew Donnal, Rob Havenstein, Aaron Neary, John Sullivan, Andrew Whitworth
    DL - Morgan Fox, Matt Longacre
    LB - Connor Barwin, Bryce Hager
    DB - Cody Davis
    Special Teams - Johnny Hekker (P), Jake McQuaide (LS), Greg Zuerlein (K)
    Practice Squad - Michael Dunn (OL), Jake Eldrenkamp (OL), Sam Rogers (FB), Travis Wilson (TE)

    According to the depth chart at http://www.therams.com/team/depth-chart.html
    starters will be Goff, Kupp, Higbee, Whitworth, Sullivan, Havenstein, and Barwin.
    So QB, WR, TE, 3 OL, and 1 LB.

    Except for rookie Cooper Kupp, the offense is pretty much caste appropriate, but they are strong at all the caste positions, so that is a good thing. The defense is strong (by NFL standards) as there are 5 of our guys on the active roster.

    Total White Starters: 7

    Total Whites on 53-man roster: 21

    Overall Grade: C

    Definitely a team to root for!

    Wow, I didn't realize the Rams had whitened-up so significantly without Jeff Fisher at the helm. I wish Goff and Kupp the best of success. A blonde-haired QB passing to a blonde-haired WR is the Caste System's worst nightmare...

    who is the white running back wearing number 34 in game 4 preseason, he made a very nice catch and run thumping the defender as well

    Must have been FB Sam Rogers, though I believe he was #39. Despite being drafted in the 6th round, he was cut and placed on practice squad. Hopefully he's promoted to the active roster at some point this season.
