Rams select Kupp to supplement receiving corps
- The Los Angeles Rams selected wide receiver Cooper Kupp the third round of the draft Friday night.
- Kupp’s 89.3 overall PFF grade in 2016 was the second-highest in the draft class.
- Eastern Washington QBs had a passer rating of 140.2 when targeting Kupp.
- Kupp had 88 receptions for 1,220 yards when lined up in the slot, both ranking in the top five of the draft class for slot production.
- When lined up outside, he still averaged 5.11 yards per route run, higher than when in the slot.
- Kupp gives Rams QB Jared Goff another weapon who can line up outside or in the slot, and is one of the better route-runners in the class.
