Draft Grades, while pointless in a sense, show whether or not a team has had a good draft. If one thing was clear during the 2016 Los Angeles Rams draft, it was that they were going to fix what was one of the worst offenses in the NFL last season. They did that by drafting quarterback Jared Goff, two pass catching tight-ends, as well as two play-making wide receivers. The Rams also drafted a linebacker to add depth.
It’s way too early to determine how these players will do in their careers and know whether or not they will be a good pick or end up being a bust. Normally teams and experts wait three years before determine that. At that point it’s pretty clear how a pick has turned out. However, given their ability and value in terms of where the Rams drafted them, here are the way-too-early draft grades.
Here are the final results of the Rams draft before we get into the grades:
R1- QB Jared Goff
R4- TE Tyler Higbee and WR Pharoh Cooper
R6- TE Temarrick Hemingway, LB Josh Forrest, and WR Mike Thomas
