Jared Goff takes center stage as Rams begin OTAs today

The Rams are the last team in the league to start their OTAs, so it’s time to see the first pick in the draft.

So while it’s effectively the first day of class, it’s still an important test for quarterback Jared Goff, as he leads the entire team onto the field today.

Just kind of stay low and gain their respect,” Goff said of his goal this week, via Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times.

Of course, keeping a low profile is harder when your team makes such a dramatic move to get you, as the Rams did trading up to the No. 1 overall pick this year.

Goff has been through some degree of positional work and has a rookie minicamp under his belt, but today will be the first real glimpse of him with the team, and there’s a natural curiosity among them, to see if he can be the quarterback they need to become something other than 7-9.


“I’m excited for him,” cornerback Trumaine Johnson said. “He’s going to go out there and make plays — and he’s going to make mistakes. That’s what a rookie quarterback does.

“But we drafted him for a reason, to come in here and win games. And I feel like we can win games with him.”

Of course, the Rams may trot Case Keenum out there first in the quarterback line for show, but the team is obviously in Goff’s hands, and he gets a chance to show what he can do with it today.

  1. La Cosa National Football League will ensure the LA Rams win a SB in the next 3-5 years. Just to much $$ to be stolen for them not too.

  2. So exited for him!!!
    They drafted him for a reason, to go in there and win games. NFL fans all across our great nation fervently wish that fine upstanding young man all the best and sincerely hope and pray his team can win games with him.
    It’s going to be great!!!

  3. Oh man, The NFL in Los Angeles. It’s so great. Goff is going to be terrific, and the Rams are going to be a powerhouse. The whole time they were great on the 70’s they had an awesome defense, a powerful running game and a weak quarterback that kept them from winning the big games. Now, they have it all. See you at the Coliseum.

  4. I’m excited to see what Goff can do in LA with the Rams. He doesn’t get rattled easily and is just a natural leader.
