Carson Wentz, North Dakota State – A two-time All-American and two-time NCAA FCS championship game MVP, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Wentz threw for 17 touchdowns with four interceptions last season despite missing eight games with a broken wrist.
Comment: Only one other time have the Eagles had a pick as high as No. 2. That was in 1999 when they took QB Donovan McNabb.
Jared Goff, California – In 2013, Goff was the first true freshman quarterback to start a Cal opener since at least WWII. His teams improved from 1-11, to 5-7 in 2014, to 8-5 last season with a win over Air Force in the Armed Services Bowl. He had 43 touchdowns with 13 interceptions last season.
Comment: Rams were last in total offense, passing offense, and on third down. Team made historic trade, leapfrogged 14 clubs to get to Goff.
Jason Sperling did not let the Rams’ move from St. Louis to Los Angeles affect his support for the Rams.
Sperling, 35, won a lottery to attend the NFL draft on Thursday and was in the stands in the afternoon waiting for the red carpet arrivals of the draft prospects, including quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, one of whom will be selected by the Rams with the No. 1 pick.
Sperling, from Cape Girardeau, Mo., wore a No. 94 jersey with QUINN stitched on the back. Rams defensive end Robert Quinn wears No. 94.
