Jared Goff not guaranteed a starting spot in Los Angeles

The first pick needs a chance to play, but he will have to earn it

The Los Angeles Rams drafted former California quarterback Jared Goff with the first pick, but he may not be the starter in 2017. Head Coach Sean McVay would not commit to Goff as his starter.

“I think what we’ve tried to preach to our players is we’re going to let the best players play,” McVay said, via the team’s official website. “We’re trying to win football games and whoever we feel like gives us the best chance is who’s going to play behind center.

“Right now, we feel very good about what they’ve both done. Jared has done a nice job getting better, but you always want to make sure that you’re playing the guy that you feel like gives you the best ability to win football games, because we owe it to our coaches, to our players and to this organization to do that. I think what we’ve seen is good for those guys, but right now Jared’s the starter and he’s done a nice job commanding that role.”

I doubt Sean Mannion wins the starting spot, but he is the next quarterback in line behind Goff with newly added Dylan Thompson rounding out the top 3.
