Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley likes what he sees in the team's No. 1 overall pick.

Gurley made an appearance on Friday's edition of NFL Total Access and spoke highly of Jared Goff.

"Great kid. Couldn't ask for a better QB. We are just excited to have him (here)," Gurley said. "He's definitely learning. He's getting better. Just excited to play the upcoming season with him."

Last season Gurley was one of the few bright spots for the team on offense. As a rookie he rushed for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns on his way to winning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Gurley's production last year was even more impressive because he did it despite an abysmal Rams passing attack that ranked last in the league in total yards (2,805).

Goff is penciled in as the Day 1 starter and it's hard to fathom the rookie getting much resistance from the other QBs on the roster.

The spotlight will be on the rookie passer early. Los Angeles yearns for showtime from its sports. But Goff's rookie growing pains should be soothed by the fact that he has a good running back and stout defense.

Goff, Gurley and the Rams open training camp on July 29 in Irvine, Calif.
