While Bergman mentions a handful of Rams slated to make a difference in 2018, he said to keep an eye on newly acquired offensive weapon, receiver Brandin Cooks:


"The lone massive offensive addition during theRams' offseason shopping spree, Cooks gives third-year quarterback Goff something he hasn't had in the NFL so far: a consistent field-stretching threat. Cooks has amassed 1,794 yards from passes that traveled at least 20 yards in the air since entering the league in 2014, a mark second only to Julio Jones in that span, according to Pro Football Focus. His presence in New England promptedTom Bradyto take more chances vertically."
