Rams News: KT Leveston Comfortable Playing Anywhere Along Offensive Line

The Los Angeles Rams had a clear plan entering the 2024 NFL Draft and it was to build through the trenches.

Of their 10 drat picks, the Rams spent six of them on the offensive and defensive line combined. Jared Verse, Braden Fiske, Brennan Jackson and Tyler Davis represented their defensive picks, while Beaux Limmer and KT Leveston were their offensive line selections.

Both Limmer and Leveston were great value picks for Los Angeles as they slipped to the later parts of the sixth and seventh rounds, respectively. In Leveston’s case, he was a victim of the talent and depth in this year’s draft class along the offensive line as a prospect like him would’ve normally gone earlier.

Despite not having played a snap at the NFL level yet, Leveston expressed his confidence in playing any position up front, via Stu Jackson of TheRams.com

“Honestly, I’m comfortable playing anywhere, left, right, guard, tackle,” Leveston said. “Even if I’m not a starter and the center goes down, I’m telling you I can hop in there, for sure.”

The rookie lineman added that learning different positions is tough, but believes the challenge is more mental than physical:

“It’s more mental, I would say,” Leveston said. “Just from a mental standpoint, you have to keep pushing yourself, and then once you start feeling comfortable, you got to start putting more pressure on yourself to get even better than that. That’s what develops great players, and I know I’m going to be a great player.”

L.A. invested in their offensive line during free agency by re-signing Kevin Dotson and signing Jonah Jackson, so Leveston will spend his first year learning and developing behind the scenes. Although Leveston was a left tackle in college, he projects to play along interior given his size and stature.

The Rams have valued players who can play multiple positions, so Leveston was a great swing to take that late in the draft. While he might not have a role immediately, he could someday turn into a valuable contributor.
