As the LA Rams completed the fourth round of the draft by taking the tall University of Central Florida WR/TE Jacob Harris, it’s clear that LA Rams head coach Sean McVay wants an injection of explosiveness into the passing game from all angles, and all new heights.
That’s because Harris is a towering receiver (6-foot-5!) that can hopefully extend the field vertically for new Rams QB Matthew Stafford. If the football field is only so big horizontally, just makes good sense to extend it vertically as well. And you do that by drafting a tall-guy receiver.
