A Whole New Approach: St. Louis Rams sign draft class, offer financial responsibility courses
Saturday June 13th, 2015

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. 

Missing from the signing day extravaganza was Missouri wide receiver Bud Sasser, who failed a physical due to a heart condition, according to a report from ESPN.com

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.
