The Daily Dose: Most Memorable Draft Moments, Rams To-Do List This Offseason

Posted Apr 12, 2018

All the latest headlines surrounding the Los Angeles Rams for Thursday, April 12.

This offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. Here’s a look at what’s out there for Thursday, April 12th about your Los Angeles Rams.

Most Memorable NFL Draft Moments for all 32 Teams

The NFL Draft is known for producing memorable moments year in and year out. From Eagles fans booing the selection of Donovan McNabb to the Chargers drafting Eli Manning, NFL Nation reporters are looking back on the Draft memories that stand out the most for all 32 teams. 

Los Angeles Rams: Moving up 14 spots to select their franchise QB at No. 1 in 2016

“Sam Bradford's inability to stay healthy prompted the Rams to have major issues at this position for years. But in 2016, they were moving back to L.A. and needed a major move to solidify the position long-term and get the fans excited. They did that by moving all the way to the top of the draft and ultimately selecting Jared Goff out of Cal with the first overall pick. That 2016 season went miserably, with Goff struggling while two other quarterbacks in his draft class, Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott, outshined him. But the Rams experienced a major resurgence under first-year head coach Sean McVay in 2017, going 11-5 while leading the NFL in points. Now they look like the NFL's most exciting team. And it all started with a bold move leading up to the 2016 draft.”

Busy Patriots, Rams Still Have Major To-Do Lists This Offseason

No general manager had a busier nor bolder spring thus far than the Rams general manager Les Snead. But according to the NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal, no decision maker has more work left to do in the coming months.

On Thursday, Rosenthal is breaking down what Los Angeles must accomplish in the remaining weeks before the 2018 season officially kicks off. Take a look at a few of the items on the organization’s to-do list:

1) Sign Aaron Donald

2) Re-sign Brandin Cooks or Lamarcus Joyner to extensions

3) Budget for Todd Gurley and Marcus Peters’ contracts

4) Make this buzz count

5) Construct McVay-Goff 2.0

Hekker Claps Back at NFL Films on Twitter

As a Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro in each of his first four seasons, there’s little to no debate that Rams punter Johnny Hekker is one of the best in the business. But in this year’s NFL Top 100 — an annual list that features the top one hundred players in the league, chosen by fellow NFL players — no punters were named.

So the team at NFL Films decided to give one special punter the Top 100 treatment. The only downside? It wasn’t for Hekker. Instead, new Broncos punter Marquette King was given the special treatment with a new video feature on Twitter.

In response, Hekker decided to have a little fun online, posting this tweet aimed at NFL Films. Check out the full conversation below:
