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 Monday, June 11th about your Los Angeles Rams:
NFL's Top Players from 2016 Draft Right Now
In the spirit of the NFL’s Top 100 List — featuring the best players heading into the 2018 season — writers at the NFL.com have begun breaking down their own top 10 players at every position group.
In addition, NFL.com analyst David Carr also took a look at the athletes from the 2016 Draft Class and rank the top 10 players right now. Rams quarterback Jared Goff, the former No. 1 pick, was featured on the list. Here’s what Carr had to say about the third-year signal caller:
“Goff's progression over his first two seasons has made it easy to put him on this list. He was excellent last year -- when working with first-year head coach Sean McVay -- and might be even better in 2018. Los Angeles' daunting defense, which added Aqib Talib, Marcus Peters and Ndamukong Suh in the offseason, should give Goff and the offense even more opportunities to shine.”
The Biggest Standout of Every NFL Team's Offseason so Far
In less than a week, the NFL will kick off its summer break — allowing players a bit of time off before each club heads into training camp in late July.
But before offseason programs officially wrap up, Bleacher Report is taking a look at some of the work put forward by some of the most hyped players in the league. Based on various media reports that have been flowing in from 32 different practice fields, writer Brad Gagnon delivered the biggest standouts of every team’s offseason thus far:
*Los Angeles Rams: TE Gerald Everett

“Dispatches from Myles Simmons of the team's official website indicated the Los Angeles Rams have been rolling on offense throughout OTAs, and it sounds as though second-year tight end Gerald Everett is a big part of that.
The second-round pick caught only 16 passes while backing up Tyler Higbee last season, but a strong run could help him leapfrog Higbee on the depth chart.
"Gerald Everett's been one of the guys that's stood out really throughout the offseason program so far in terms of getting better," Rams head coach Sean McVay said, per Cameron DaSilva of Rams Wire. "You see the overall athleticism; he's getting better with the attention to detail."
As Kristen Lago of the team's official website pointed out, Everett is more confident this offseason.
‘I don't have to think as much," he said. "Last year, I was spinning to say the least. But now that I can finally relax and just compete, it feels pretty good.’”
