Sony Michel's Patriots career ended with a late-August trade to the Rams. The former first-round selection has largely been a disappointment through four seasons as more of an early-down grinder at his best than a sustained and three-down foundation back commonly expected from a Round 1 pick. Michel joins a Cam Akers-less Rams depth chart ripe for significant touches. Darrell Henderson has been tepid-at-best through two seasons, forming a committee with Michel at the top of the depth chart. The 1A and 1B roles are unsettled with neither Henderson or Michel being dependable with a strong workload to-date in their careers. Michel is in a make-or-break season to define his future opportunities and not under contract for 2022. The good news is the Rams offense is poised to be one of the better units in the NFL and a merely good enough lead running back has the makings of a productive option.
