Rams FB Sam Rogers – Draft Day Conference Call – April 29, 2017

(On his familiarity with Rams Head Coach Sean McVay’s offense that he ran in Washington)
“I am a little bit. I grew up around the Redskins because I’m from Ashville, Va., which is about two hours from D.C., so I grew up watching the Redskins. They use versatile guys, guys that can do a lot of different things and I feel like I fit that mold pretty well. It’s an honor just be a Ram right now.”
 
(On his experience on special teams and his eagerness to play on special teams with the Rams)
“Yes sir, absolutely. Playing at Virginia Tech, special teams is a huge emphasis – I can’t wait to bring that mentality to the Rams and get on the field any way I can. Obviously special teams is going to be a big part of that and I want to play as much as I can.”
 
(On the position he considers himself to be)
“I can do a bunch of different things, like I said. The Rams are going to bring me in as a fullback, and I can’t wait to block for (RB) Todd Gurley and contribute in any way I can.”
 
(On if throwing touchdown passes is still in his repertoire)
“Yeah, if they want me to do that, I’d be happy to (laughs).”
