Quality receivers attract scouts to their quarterbacks

The LA Rams were not the only team to notice the talent available at Washington State University. While Easop Winston Jr. and other receivers were making incredible catches, scouts also took notice of the quarterback throwing the ball. The Jacksonville Jaguars noticed 2018 quarterback Gardner Minshew, who they drafted in 2019 and is now their designated starter for the 2020 NFL season.  2019 quarterback Anthony Gordon caught the eye of the Seattle Seahawks and is not working to earn a roster spot for Seattle in 2020.

But what of Winston? Does he have a chance to make the Rams roster?

That appears to be a yes.

Rams rookie role

It seems that some think he has a good chance to do exactly that. But what had we projected for the Rams? Well, his name surfaced even before the draft as a potential impact player for the Rams in the 2020 NFL Draft. But even a player who makes the roster as a rookie from the ranks of the undrafted must work all the harder to win playing time. That’s why I believe his best chance of helping the Rams in 2020 will be to try out for a return specialist role for the team to showcase his talents, and then await the opportunity for similar opportunities on offense.

Easop Winston Jr. is virtually the same height and weight of Rams star WR Robert Woods. And as long as Winston can watch and learn from Woods, he draws closer to replicating Woods’s production on the playing field. In fact, Woods was an average receiver during his first four seasons with the Buffalo Bills, and it was not until he paired up with Rams head coach Sean McVay and QB Jared Goff that he became a top receiver in the NFL. With any luck and a lot of hard work, Easop Winston Jr. can find similar success for the LA Rams.
