Los Angeles Rams: 3 offensive picks to consider in the 2018 NFL Draft
It’s hard to get fired up about the tight ends for the Los Angeles Rams.
Impressive? Inspiring? Hope providing?
Nope. Not even a little.
Rams head coach Sean McVay relied on a lot of offensive assets, and few of them came from his tight ends.
Looking back at the 2017 season, the tight end position was remarkably quiet and uneventful. If you were to go back and look at the discussion when McVay was hired, one area that had a lot of excitement and optimism surrounding it, was what “might be” with a player like Higbee or 2017 draft pick Everett.
It’s unfair to say they didn’t contribute.
It’s also unrealistic to say they were a tangible threat offensively.
The Rams might take a look at tight end Dallas Goedert from South Dakota State.
Goedert is 6’-5” and 255 pounds.
He’s a guy who is described as a “talented pass catching tight end” with the ability to make the spectacular catch.
Can he help the Rams?
If McVay ever decides to feature a group like tight ends, it’s hard to imagine this squad from 2017 can do that for him.
Maybe this guy will change his mind and the playbook.
