Ernest Jones might be the best Rams defender not named Aaron Donald. He's always around the ball. He currently has 38 tackles, including five that have resulted in a loss of yardage. He also has a sack and a pass breakup on his 2023 resume.

7. Ahkello Witherspoon, safety

The last time the Eagles saw Ahkello Witherspoon, A.J. Brown was taking advantage of him and everyone else in the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary. Now, a member of the Rams, this six-foot-three. 210-pounder is someone to watch. He has five tackles, two pass breakups, and an interception on the season.

8. Christian Rozeboom, linebacker

If you were a scriptwriter that was working on a football film and walking the streets of L.A., you'd probably think about casting Christian Rozeboom if you crossed paths with him. He looks the part.

Fortunately for him, he also plays the game like an NFL linebacker, He has stacked 23 tackles during the Rams' season and ranks second on the team in that category. Keep an eye on him this coming Sunday.

9. Jordan Fuller, safety

Jordan Fuller trails only Ernest Jones and Christian Rozeboom in total Rams tackles. He has also forced two fumbles this season. Any Eagles star that has the ball in his hands had better keep his head on a swivel whenever this guy is in the vicinity.

10. Byron Young, EDGE/linebacker

Byron Young is a 2023 third-round draftee who continues to prove that he's worthy of the third-round draft choice that the Rams used to select him. A 2022 First-Team All-SEC nod as a member of the Tennessee Volunteers, he has already stacked 16 tackles and two sacks on the season.
