Rams add Cooper Kupp

The Rams are adding weapons for Jared Goff and Sean McVay.

After taking a tight end in round two, the Rams have added a receiver in the third round, nabbing Eastern Washington’s Cooper Kupp.

Primarily a slot receiver, Kupp’s arrival creates an intriguing situation as it relates to Tavon Austin, the eighth overall pick in the 2013 draft who received a second contract last year but who has still not really become what they hoped he’d be.

Kupp could transition to the outside at the next level, with Austin on the inside. However it plays out, the Rams are adding pass catchers and playmakers as they prepare to go head to head with the Chargers in Los Angeles.

    Time for an NBA style trade next year to rid of Austins ridiculous contract. Let Kupp take the inside next year.

    Tavon Austin sucks, but Cooper is a very mediocre athlete. What a reach here.

    Sounds like he belongs in Mario Kart

    Great pick but too bad they don’t have a QB to throw to him.

    Ok, so let me get this straight…

    The Rams trade up to get Austin because he can “wiggle” & “jiggle” you out of your socks underneath then take it to the house. But he never does. Then, they re-sign him and reward him with the 11th highest average annual salary even though he’s never caught 60 balls or had more than 510 yards in a single season.

    Then, they draft a poor man’s version of himself in Pharoh Cooper.

    Now they want to move him outside to run the deeper patterns and in doing so eliminate the very reason they drafted him in the first place… for all those underneath “wiggle” & “jiggle” runs after the catch.

    Yeah, that sounds like a recipe for success.

    Totally wanted him to fall to the Eagles at 99.
