These Former Pros Think Jared Goff Is The Best QB In The NFL Draft

The LA Rams have the No. 1 pick in this year's NFL Draft and all signs point to Jared Goff being the first to shake the commissioner's hand on stage.

The Los Angeles Rams have the No. 1 pick in this year's NFL draft, and all signs point to the Rams selecting Jared Goff No. 1 overall. 

"On the field, he's a nice fit because 37 starts, over 1,500 pass attempts," former NFL player Bucky Brooks said. "Really cerebral, quick, decisive."

Former NFL head coach Steve Mariucci explained: "He's a California kid; he's played in the Coliseum before in big crowds. He's got the runner; he's got the defense. I think it's a good fit."

Despite the the Rams being just 7-9 last season, running back Todd Gurley was named offensive rookie of the year.

The Rams hope Goff will complete the puzzle on offense.

"What the Rams have is a run game and a stout defense. So if they can rebuild that offense quickly, at QB ... I think they can be good pretty quickly," former NFL player Mike Mayock said.

NFL analyst Charles Davis also pointed out: "Goff's feet: very quick. Decision-making: very quick. He plays the game fast."

And former NFL player Curtis Conway highlighted Goff's impact at Cal. "You look at where he's taken that program. They were 1-11 his freshman year. They went from 1-11 to 5-7, then 8-5."

Jared Goff holds the Pac-12 record for most passing yards and passing touchdowns in a single season. He also broke 26 different University of California football records during his three-year career.
