LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Rams give up several picks to trade for the No.1 overall selection in the NFL draft.
In realms of the excitement starting the new 2016-2017 season, Ram’s play devils’ advocate in their mission for obtaining the No.1 pick. Whether Jared Goff or Carson Wentz will be called tomorrow night for the first overall selection in the draft, Rams look for
security in their future with acquiring a reliable option at quarterback.
Looks like the Los Angeles Rams have their eyes on a quarterback for the upcoming season. The Head Coach Jeff Fisher recently expressed to the media that they are going to draft an
offensive player; the head coach followed by GM Les Snead, the staff revealed limited information on the upcoming pick, however, it is almost obvious they are going to draft a quarterback.
Giving up a bonanza of picks to get the No.1 pick in the draft, Rams’ nation is desperate for a turnaround in there nine consecutive losing seasons – the longest active streak in the NFL.
Fans, staff, analytics, and everyone around the league are already making the Jared Goff/Carson Wentz comparison.
Seeing the potential of the quarterback, and how either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz most likely will be the No.1 pick of the draft, Jeff Fisher and his staff had moved from pick no.15
to No.1 the upcoming draft.
Hence the pick, the preference of the two quarterbacks is believed to be more steered towards Goff, as sources around the league report that the Cal quarterback has a few areas of advantage over Wentz. According to ESPN Staff Writer Nick Wagoner, per NFL scout, Goff has advantage with his feet, performance under pressure, and sample size.
Sources around the league the Goff is the more pro-ready quarterback because he has a larger sample size with three years as a starter over Wentz’ one year and half at North Dakota State. Having experience in the league for so many years, the Rams’ head coach
knows a thing or two about how experience is vital in NFL. Transitioning to the league, the Cal quarterback seems better for that fit.
Though the new Rams’ quarterback may have to endure a tremendous amount of change, it is a great opportunity as the teams’ personal is much better than the usual destinations
that these No.1 picks tend to land.
The new face of the Rams, the electric running-back Todd Gurley, debuted with the team last season with over 1,000 yards rushing as a Rookie. Recovering from an ACL injury in 2014, Gurley picks up where he last left off in his record-breaking days in Georgia. Gurley
had become just the third Rams rookie to rush for 1,000 or more yards in a season, joining the Jerome Bettis (1993) and Eric Dickerson (1983).
Gurley had gained attention quickly from the NFL in his much anticipated debut in Week 4,
shredding the Cardinals defense with 146 rushing yards and following up the next four games with over 100 yards. Jared Goff, with the support of Gurley and a young Offensive-line, should give the quarterback confidence to give him success in his first year in the NFL, if drafted by the Rams. The young prospect also has the support from the Rams’ receiving core.
With emergence of star Tavon Austin, and veteran wide receivers Wes Welker, Kenny Britt, and Nick Toon, young players Stedman Bailey and Brian Quick also add depth to this Rams’
Not far from home, the Cal quarterback should embrace such an opportunity, as he is taking over the Ram’s talented personal, which will create great potential for years to come in Los Angeles.
