The Los Angeles Rams seemingly found their quarterback of the future when they drafted Jared Goff out of Cal with the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. They racked up some pretty good rookies over the course of the draft and as free agents and it looks like head coach Jeff Fisher is rather impressed with them.
The rookies were in Oxnard, California for the team’s rookie minicamp this weekend and all of them seemed to perform rather well. Fisher first talked about how Goff looked very impressive and how he is learning the offense pretty quickly.
“He’s doing a great job picking up our offense,” Fisher said. “We’ve given him a lot more information than we did at the private workout and then that we did here at our meeting, and he’s handled it without any problem. And that’s the impressive thing.
“I passed him last night walking to the room and he was leaving the meeting room at 10 o’clock,” Fisher continued. “He’s that kind of guy. He’ll spend the time. It’s important to him.”
Fisher also talked about the two tight ends they picked up the draft. He said that he was happy with having two big guys that can make plays.
“Impressed when the tight ends walk off the bus,” Fisher said of fourth-round pick Tyler Higbee and sixth-round pick Temarrick Hemingway. “It’s nice to see big tight ends that are long and can catch.”
The Rams may not go out and compete in the NFC this year or even for the next couple of years, but Jared Goff certainly seems like he can lead this team to something big in the future.
