Los Angeles Rams Select QB Jared Goff With #1 Pick In 2016 NFL Draft

The Los Angeles Rams have selected California University quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Head Coach Jeff Fisher will now attempt to foster a pedigreed third-year college starter in Goff, who threw for 12,195 yards on 1,568 attempts with a career 96-30 TD-to-Interception ratio. Goff wooed scouts and analysts alike with his footwork and impressive passing ability.

The Rams looked to be set for Goff from the start, as they made a blockbuster trade had the Tennesse Titans exchange the number one overall pick and their fourth and sixth round selections for Los Angeles’ number 15 pick, two second-rounders, a third rounder, and their first-and-third round picks in the 2017 Draft.
