Rams declared CB Lamarcus Joyner, CB Marcus Roberson, LB Daren Bates, WR Damian Williams, OT Brandon Washington, DT Alex Carrington, and TE Alex Bayer inactive for Week 11 against the Broncos.

Joyner is out with a groin injury. E.J. Gaines, Janoris Jenkins, and Trumaine Johnson will handle corner duties with the Rams using more three-safety looks.

Rams signed No. 41 overall pick S Lamarcus Joyner to a four-year contract.

Although he's a safety, Joyner is expected to spend time in the slot as a rookie, a la Tyrann Mathieu in Arizona. Like Mathieu, Joyner is under-sized at 5-foot-8, 184 pounds. He will compete with Rodney McLeod at free safety, and likely win.

Coach Jeff Fisher confirmed the Rams expect second-round pick Lamarcus Joyner to immediately earn a job in their nickel defense.

A similar player to Tyrann Mathieu, Joyner will compete with incumbent Rodney McLeod to start at free safety on early downs, and cover slot receivers in St. Louis' nickel package. "He’s just an outstanding player," said Fisher. "He played all over (Florida State's) defense. He played outside, he played in the slot, he played high, he blitzed, so he’s a plug-in day one nickel back."

Rams traded up with the Bills to select Florida State S Lamarcus Joyner with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2014 draft.

The Rams give up a second- and fifth-rounder in this draft to move up three spots and address a major need area. Joyner (5-foot-7 3/4, 184) was a consensus first-team All-American as a senior, posting seven tackles for loss, a team-high 5.5 sacks, three forced fumbles, and two interceptions. Joyner played safety his first three seasons for the Noles, but started at corner in 2013 and has lots of experience covering the slot. He ran 4.55 at the Combine with a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. Although Joyner is a bit size and speed deficient, his overall athleticism is more than adequate and he is an excellent football player. He's something of a poor man's Tyrann Mathieu. Look for Joyner to start ahead of Rodney McLeod at free safety right out of the gate, perhaps also covering slot receivers in nickel packages.
