2. What kind of impact will Kupp make?
Remember the comment from before about the Rams doing their homework in the draft for the later rounds? Going back to 2017, Cooper Kupp appears to be one of the biggest steals from the class when looking at the impact he’s already made in his first two NFL seasons.
Unfortunately, the Eastern Washington product watched his sophomore season come to an end earlier than expected after suffering a torn ACL in November, leaving the Rams without one of their most reliable receivers on offense.
Even if Josh Reynolds stepped up in Kupp’s absence for the remainder of the year, it just wasn’t the same in the passing game for Los Angeles.
On a positive note, just about every update for Kupp this offseason seems to have been good, and as long as everything remains on track, the wideout should be ready to go for Week 1.
Los Angeles is smart enough to know that patience will be key for Kupp over these next few weeks, and the last thing they can afford to do is rush him back too quickly where he’s more at risk to another injury.
But as long as the Rams are smart, Kupp should be just fine, and return to his old ways in no time.
