4 Quarterbacks

Keep in mind that with the expired contract to veteran quarterback Blake Bortles, the Rams truly have a roster need for a veteran quarterback. If none are signed, the team will seek depth to develop the backup via the draft. For a complete list of quarterbacks, please check this link over to the Scouting Combine invitation list.

More from Rams Draft

Jalen Hurts, QB, Oklahoma offers a unique opportunity for the right innovative offense.  Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing in at 218 pounds, Hurts has all the momentum to catch the NFL scouts as the next Lamar Jackson or Kyler Murray. The only hitch? He can’t read defenses. He can run, and he can pass, however. So it falls upon an NFL team to integrate his talents into their offense. LA Rams’ anyone?

Nathan Stanley, QB, Iowa is a 6-foot-4 243-pound four-year starter for the Iowa Hawkeyes. He’s had enough production to wear the mantle of NFL quarterback, and his size will keep the attention of most NFL Scouts. But he is fairly raw, never breaking the 60 percent completion rate in four NCAA seasons. If he falls to NFL Draft day 3 for draft round six or seven, look for the Rams to call his name.

Steven Montez, QB, Colorado is another college quarterback who arrives at the NFL with the raw skills but in need of the coaching to develop his utmost potential. He is big, standing 6-foot-4 and weighing in at 240.  He also produced solid accuracy in the PAC-12. If he falls to day three of the 2020 NFL Draft, he’s a steal.

James Morgan, QB, Florida International is one of the smaller school prospects who truly enhanced his draft stock with a strong showing at the East-West Shrine Game as well as the Senior Bowl. Another big quarterback at 6-foot-3 and 213 pounds, he could be a surprise selection chosen far higher than his projection at rounds three through five.  If he does fall to late in the draft, the Rams would get a starting-caliber quarterback for next to nothing.

Of course, the key to the LA Rams selecting a quarterback in the draft is a prospect falling far from their projection. With as many as eight quarterbacks going early, the market for quarterbacks could exhaust quickly. If that happens, talented quarterbacks will tumble right into the LA Rams’ lap on day three.
