Now that they own the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Rams can have any quarterback they want.
And they seem to have a preference.
According to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times, the Rams are “targeting“North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz in making the deal with the Titans for the top pick.
While Cal’s Jared Goff is considered by many a more turn-key player, Wentz may have more potential.
If nothing else, Hollywood loves a good story, and dropping a kid from an FCS school who was born in Bismarck into the middle of the league’s return to Los Angeles will be a good one.
We’ll find out if it’s the right one, but Case Keenum’s hold on that starting job was tenuous anyway.
UPDATE 10:00 a.m. ET: Farmer has followed up by saying Goff is “still heavily in the mix,” and the Rams are “leaning” Wentz.
