Ebukam is expected to step in as a starter for the Rams at outside linebacker in 2018, Vincent Bonsignore of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

The Rams' decision to trade Robert Quinn to Miami may have been buoyed by their belief that Ebukam, a 2017 fourth-round pick, is ready to step into a larger role on the outside. Ebukam posted a 39-inch vertical leap and 4.50 40-yard dash while checking in at 240 pounds prior to last year's draft, and then compiled 31 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble on 351 defensive snaps as a rookie. The Rams likely want Ebukam to put on some weight, as the majority of 3-4 outside linebackers check in around 250-to-270 pounds. He'll have athleticism and opportunity both working in his favor this year.
