What I like about this signing
You always like to see rookies who have competed well against other seniors in bowl games. Those senior bowls are the perfect stages for college seniors who are expected to have draftable grades to compete against other college seniors of similar talent levels. It's the first, and perhaps the only, opportunity for NFL personnel executives and scouts to see prospects in direct competition with their peers.
The truth is that any rookie wide receiver who lands on the Rams roster has an incredible set of teammates to use as reference guides and mentors. And for WR Nacua, that is exactly what he has done so far during his time with the Rams coaches and players.
Learning the Rams offense for a new wide receiver can be quite a challenge. It's a complex process of not only running routes, but being in the right place at the right time. Beyond that, it also involves a huge set of responsibilities of blocking, and can even be very involved in the running game in terms of jet sweeps.
Puka Nacua has a ripe background at running the football with Brigham Young, and that will definitely be a huge plus in improving his chances of contributin on the Rams offense during the 2023 NFL season.
