ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Rams are “leaning toward” selecting Cal QB Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick.
However, a team source tells him that NDSU QB Carson Wentz is still being considered at the top of the draft.
Schefter’s source said that the Rams made this trade with the Titans because it gave them “two weeks to debate between Goff and Wentz. You can make a convincing case for both. Both are going to be good.”
During his three years at Cal, Goff threw for 12,195 yards while completing 62.3 percent of his passes to go along with 96 touchdowns and 30 interceptions over the course of 37 games.
We’ll have more regarding the Rams and the No. 1 overall pick as the news is available.
- Farmer adds that Cal QB Jared Goff remains in the mix as well.
In total, the Rams gave up two first rounders, two second rounders and two third rounders for the right to draft No. 1 overall. They also picked up a fourth-round pick (113) and sixth-round pick from the Titans as well.
It’s clear they have their sights set on one of the quarterbacks, or they wouldn’t be paying this kind of price for the No. 1 overall pick.
Albert Breer reports that the Rams have already conducted on-campus workouts with both Goff and Wentz.
There have been more and more reports that Goff will end up being the first quarterback to come off the board, but Wentz has been impressive throughout the draft process.
During his Senior year at NDST, Wentz threw for 1,651 yards while completing 63 percent of his passes to go along with 17 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also contributed 294 yards rushing and six touchdowns.
