Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. (1986-93). 51. QB. JimEverett. 4. player

Cards on the table, no one should be surprised to see Jim Everett on this list when looking at all the accomplishments put together over the years with the Rams from 1986 to 1993.

After looking at the kind of impact Everett was able to make during his college career at Purdue, it seemed like a no brainer for the Rams to trade for the No. 3 overall pick by the then-Houston Oilers in 1986.

Even though it took Everett a few years, in the beginning, to get adjusted to playing in the NFL, patience would pay off for the Rams pretty quickly when looking at the 1988 campaign he put together.

To watch a quarterback that previously threw 18 touchdowns in 17 games to start his career go on to throw 31 touchdown passes during the 1988 NFL season, while leading the Rams to a 10-6 record shows the kind of improvement made by Everett.

And if that wasn’t impressive enough for the Rams, Everett would go on to throw another 29 touchdown passes the following season in 1989, while finishing 11-5. He helped the Rams reach the NFC Championship before falling to the rival San Francisco 49ers.

For the most part, things would go downhill for Everett after this epic run during the 1989 NFL season, but he still provided Rams fans with plenty of great memories early on.
