With the 1st pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, The Los Angeles Rams select Jared Goff QB California
The big question that was yet to be answered for the Rams this offseason was who is going to be the starting quarterback for week 1? Early reports came on that quarterback Case Keenum looked to have the starting job as both head coach Jeff Fisher and teammate Tavon Austin were both 100% in on trusting Keenum.
However a week and a half ago, the Rams made the biggest move before the Draft by moving up to the number 1 spot by trading away their first-round pick (2016), two second-round picks (2016), a third-round pick (2016), a first-round pick (2017) and another third-round pick (2017) to the Titans. With the move to the number one spot, fans and the league knew they were aiming for a hopeful franchise quarterback.
Fans were hoping the team would make some type of big splash in the offseason with the relocation back to Los Angeles, well that big splash happened tonight. The Los Angeles Rams have selected QB Jared Goff (California) with the 1st pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Wanna know what the Rams have drafted? Take a look at the recent report from NFL Mocks
"“Very good ability to diagnose defenses pre-snap and make adjustments accordingly. Handles snaps from shotgun well and promptly positions the ball for quick release. About forty-eight percent of his third down throws resulted in a first down, higher than other top QB prospects such as Paxton Lynch (48%), Connor Cook (46.5%) and Jacoby Brissett (42.8%). “ – NFL Mocks"
Captain Jared Goff would leave The University of California with 4,719 passing yards, 43 Touchdowns, 13 interceptions along with an overall 161.3 quarterback rating in 2015.
