Jared Goff is a stud and our scout Lijah Spencer breaks down his film in his latest scouting report

Watch the Rams draft Jared Goff and screw the Browns

The NFL Draft is approaching, we are just a few days away, and the Los Angeles Rams have the first pick in the NFL Draft. If Jared Goff from Cal is drafted first overall he will be the second California quarterback taken with the first overall pick. The other is Falcons former quarterback Steve Bartkowski in 1975.

Bartkowski was a consensus All-American his senior season in 1974 at the University of California, Berkeley when he led the nation in passing. In 1972, Bartkowski threw for 944 yards with four touchdowns and 13 interceptions. In 1973, he threw for 910 yards with four touchdowns and seven interceptions while continuing to split time with QB Vince Ferragamo as he did in the previous season. In 1974 Bartkowski threw for 2,580 yards,12 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He completed 182 passes out of 325 attempts.

Bartkowski is one of ten quarterbacks in NFL history who have achieved consecutive 30-touchdown passing seasons (1980 and 1981) at least one time in their career. Bartkowski was selected to the Pro Bowl after both the 1980 and 1981 seasons and was selected 2nd Team All-NFC following the 1980 campaign. Bartkowski led the NFL in passing in 1983 with a passer rating of 97.6.

While Bartkowski is not a household name, Goff still has pretty big shoes to fill, do you agree?
