LA Rams head coach Sean McVay will attend NFL Scouting Combine week but will keep positional coaches in Los Angeles to attend and assess prospects virtually
The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine is already headlining the LA Rams news. While we’ve been detailing the event for our readers, the LA Rams front office and coaching staff have been strategizing how the team will handle the 9-day event among their staff. Following the lead by Denver Broncos’ head coach Vic Fangio, LA Rams head coach Sean McVay has decided to attend the scouting combine but keep his coordinators and coaches back in Los Angeles to attend the event virtually.
The Rams are likely following suit to the Broncos lead due to the hiring of former Denver Broncos’ OLB coach Brandon Staley as the team’s new defensive coordinator. The move is less about cost-cutting and more about time efficiency. With the Rams welcoming three new coordinators, they are now racing against the clock to formulate what attributes the team needs to emphasize in the 2020 NFL Draft, and who best possesses those attributes.
With so much to do and so little time, the Rams can accomplish more by remaining in Los Angeles and collaborating with one another. Of course, the Rams will continue to send scouts and head coach Sean McVay will be in attendance to coordinate the interviews and emphasize which players the Rams will prioritize for the upcoming draft.
In a possible wave of the future, Broncos’ HC Vic Fangio and Rams’ HC Sean McVay will attend the scouting combine, but Fangio is leaving home his assistant coaches and McVay is doing the same with his coordinators, believing in better uses of their time.https://t.co/SDG2a9O3nL
