Plenty of options for Rams to get an outside WR in the draft
- Head coach Sean McVay’s offense targeted the outside receiver on 43.6 percent of targets in 2016.
- Josh Reynolds and Chad Hansen both ran 17 or fewer routes from the slot in 2016. Both had less than 4 percent of their snaps lined up in the slot.
- Dede Westbrook was targeted in the slot 26 times, Taywan Taylor was targeted 28 times, and Amba Etta-Tawo was targeted 16 times. All three had more production on the outside than Hansen and Reynolds.
- Hansen’s 16 receptions on passes 20-plus yards down the field (for 721 yards) was sixth-most among this year’s WR draft class, followed up by Westbrook with 15.
