Rams WR Cooper Kupp – Draft Day Conference Call – April 28, 2017
 
(On if he saw the Rams as a team he might fit well with)
“Yeah, I was really excited about the kind of things they had going on. Obviously, having Jared (Goff) there at quarterback and the potential he has to be a great quarterback. I got along really well with (Rams Head) Coach (Sean) McVay and (General Manager) Mr. (Les) Snead. Just to be a part of this organization is something that I’m really excited about.”
 
(On what he brings to the Rams as a receiver)
“I think I bring versatility. A guy that’s going to know the offense inside and out. A guy that’s going to be ready to go day one. I pride myself on that, on learning the offense – I know exactly what I need to be a guy that can be reliable and be able to get first downs. The ability to create in multiple different ways, play wherever you need me to play. I think that’s something that I bring that a lot of receivers can’t.”
 
(On what he would say to people who bring up the level of competition he faced in college)
“I’ve played against some very good football players and I have played against some very good teams, as well, and I’ve been able to produce in both situations. I believe I prepared to be the best when I step on the field and that’s not going to change moving up to the NFL. I pride myself on that preparation and what it takes to be great. If people want to question that, that’s fine. I’m just going to go and do what I do and I believe that that opinion will change soon.”
 
(On if he had a sense that the Rams were interested in him)
“Yeah, I had a formal interview with them at the Combine and I thought that went really well. I got along really well with the coaches there. Then, was able to do a workout as well. Again, just being able to connect with the offensive coaching staff and (wide receivers) coach (Eric) Yarber. I was able to just go out and do what I love and play ball. I think they liked what they saw.”
 
(On what he thought of Head Coach Sean McVay)
“He was great. He’s a very intelligent guy, a great coach with great energy. I’m blessed to be a player under him and very excited for the future.”
