The Los Angeles Rams made headlines with the first overall pick when they selected quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick. LA Celebrities such as Magic Johnson and Eric Dickerson have already discussed the Rams quarterback, and have had some bold things to say.
Let’s start with Dickerson.
Dickerson joined Thompson and Trudell on ESPN710 LA to discuss Jared Goff as well as Todd Gurley. When it came to Goff here’s what Dickerson had to say:
"T: What about Jared Goff jumps out at you?ED: Accuracy. He’s a tough guy. He’s taken a lot of hits from not having a lot of great receivers outside, but overtime I see him throw I’m like, ‘Wow, this kid’s accurate. He reminds me a lot of Aaron Rogers.‘ Now that’s a big statement, because to me Aaron is very accurate. I mean, you talk about one being one of the top accurate quarterbacks in the NFL I think of him and I think of Joe Montana. Putting the ball exactly where it has to be, and that’s the main thing for a receiver. That makes it easier for the receiver and very very difficult for a defender."

Magic Johnson, former Los Angeles Lakers great, joined the conversation by taking his thoughts to Twitter.
Jared Goff is certainly creating some buzz in the LA media. It’s only a matter of time before we see what he can do on the field in a Rams uniform.
