The Rams have their quarterback.
Georgia’s Stetson Bennett will join Matthew Stafford in the quarterbacks room. Stafford was the only quarterback on the roster until Saturday when the Rams drafted Stetson in the fourth round. They used the 128th overall choice on a quarterback many thought had a chance to go undrafted.
The Rams, who began the draft with 11 picks, needed not only depth at the position but a heir apparent to Stafford.
Bennett, 25, went to the right place with the right coach and a chance to learn under another former Georgia star in Stafford.
Bennett had a series of missteps after the 2022 season ended, including a Jan. 26 arrest in Dallas for public intoxication, that had raised red flags.
But Bennett went 29-3 in his college career, including 26-1 his last two seasons, and he passed for 8,429 yards with 66 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in winning two national championships.
