The Rams took a little break from their GM search while they were filling out their coaching staff and planning trips to London, but they got back on the horse Monday. According to reports, the organization interviewed the Jets’ Joey Clinkscales and the Vikings’ George Paton.
We’ve talked about Clinkscales already since he was on the original list, but Paton is a new name. For anyone who doesn’t remember, Clinkscales was the director of college scouting for New York. Paton was the director of player personnel in Minnesota, and his inclusion could be connected to Jeff Fisher. Fisher will reportedly have at least some involvement in who the next GM will be, so don’t be surprised if a couple more new names surface.
Now that the coaching staff has been dealt with, we should all be interested in the GM position. The Rams have been awful in the draft for years, so getting someone to turn tat around is vital to future success. I still like Clinkscales, but it will be interesting to see what role Fisher plays. Whatever happens, I hope they get their guys soon with draft prep already getting going.
