Rams announce end of Goff visit, pub both Goff and Wentz on team website


Quarterback Jared Goff completed his visit with the Rams Thursday, a week before the Rams make the first pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

The Rams hosted both Goff and Carson Wentz this week. It’s believed that the Rams last week and the Eagles this week traded up to the top two spots in the draft to select quarterbacks, though the Rams have not said if they’ll select Goff or Wentz.

The Rams announced the completion of Goff’s visit via their official team Twitter account Thursday, then made a similar post saying that Wentz had visited. The team then posted exclusive video interviews with both on its website.

In his three-minute interview clip, Goff said he was “ecstatic” when he heard the Rams had traded to acquire the No. 1 pick and addressed the chances that he will be the pick.

“It’s exciting,” Goff said. “If that’s the case, I’m ready to get to work and ready to make [the Rams] be proud of the decision they made.”

Wentz said becoming the first pick “would be a dream come true...really special to me.” He said he knows there’s going to be a steep learning curve as he goes from playing at the FCS level in college to the NFL but said he believes he’s ready for the challenge.

“If anyone wants to doubt that I can make the transition, I’m excited to prove them wrong,” he said.
