Rams Take Jared Goff No. 1 In NFL Draft

The St. Louis Los Angeles Rams traded a truckload of picks to the Tennessee Titans earlier this spring in order to obtain the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. They used that pick Thursday night in order to grab the top-rated quarterback off the board.

The Rams drafted Cal standout Jared Goff, which puts a young, fresh, face to lead a franchise in the middle of a giant makeover.

Jon Gruden referred to Goff as “calm and cool, much like Joe Montana.” That might be a stretch, but Goff is a stud and will likely be a perennial All-Pro.

But fans on Twitter were mostly just pissed that the Rams took up their entire ten-minute time limit to announce the No. 1 overall selection.

Others simply weren’t that optimistic about Goff in general, such as this bitter St. Louis radio host:

The Philadelphia Eagles took North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz at No. 2 overall. It will be very interesting to see who pans out and who doesn’t. Both likely have bright futures.

But kudos to the new L.A. Rams for making a big splash in their new city.
