St. Louis Rams sign draft class in bulk on Friday
Continuing a tradition the franchise has upheld in recent seasons, the St. Louis Rams signed its draft class on Friday, after putting the prospective rookies through a series of financial planning seminars.
The Rams signed all but one of their 2015 draft picks, including first round pick Todd Gurley out of Georgia. The team also signed tackles Robert Havenstein and Andrew Donnal, guards Jamon Brown and Cody Wichmann, as well as longtime Oregon State quarterback Sean Mannion, among others.
Fourth-year Rams coach Jeff Fischer has instituted the rookie signing policy over the past three seasons and believes it helps all rookies, both drafted and undrafted, to bond.
The Rams have finished at the bottom of the ultra-competitive AFC West Division in the last two seasons, finishing 6–10 in 2014, and 7–9 in 2013 respectively.
