So, the 2022 NFL Draft is in the books. How was it for you? Perhaps more importantly, how was it for the LA Rams? The Rams certainly had their Championship core intact, but another Here are a few notes and reflections on what was a wild, chaotic, fun-filled weekend for the Super Bowl champions.

The draft day video in which former Notre Dame RB Kyren Williams receives a call from LA Rams General Manager Les Snead and Head Coach Sean McVay is my favorite of the weekend. (Shown below). It is perhaps my favorite draft day video of all time. I simply never tire of watching it.

Passion, pride, relief, vindication, determination, family, love, and joy unrestrained, it’s all right there in a 30-second clip. You are watching a man have his life changed in front of your very eyes. A dream, likely one he carried in his heart since childhood, is becoming a reality at that moment.

Rams RB Williams roars

Unlike many of the others who often appear too cool to show it, Williams displays all of the emotional range that you would expect to see from a man who has just been told what he’s been told. Everything we love about this crazy, beautiful game, can be captured in his response to this amazing news. There is another clip where he heads out to a balcony and furiously roars into the street.

Anyone who ever had a dream and had it come true in the face of overwhelming odds knows what that roar means. An exorcism, and a war cry for the new battle ahead, all in one go. A pure joy to watch, even after the 18th time.

In the phone exchange video, HC Mcvay called him ‘one of our kind of guys’. He is one of mine, too. Mcvay said there are a lot of similarities and carry over from the plays Williams ran in college at Notre Dame, so this should hopefully stand him in very good stead as he makes his transition to the pros.
