The Los Angeles Rams acquired the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft Thursday in a blockbuster trade with the Tennessee Titans. The Rams are clearly angling for a quarterback and the two most logical choices are either Jared Goff or Carson Wentz.
Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reported that the Rams are targeting Wentz, the quarterback out of North Dakota State. Wentz has played only FCS and was only a starter for North Dakota State for two years.
Goff would be a solid pick given the back that he went to Cal and has played against some NFL-caliber competition in his days with the Pac-12. Farmer reported that Goff is still in the mix, but the Rams still like Wentz.
Wentz led North Dakota State to the FCS championship in 2014 with 3,111 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. His 2015 season ended prematurely when he injured his wrist.
