Rams sign Todd Gurley, rest of 2015 draft class

The St. Louis Rams used Friday to get their entire rookie draft class under contract.

Among the signings announced by the team was first-round running back Todd Gurley, the sensational talent out of Georgia who was picked to transform the team's ground attack.

Gurley, though, is "still a ways away" from practicing as the No. 10 overall pick rebounds from November's ACL tear, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The Rams also signed second-round offensive tackle Rob Havenstein, third-rounders Sean Mannion (quarterback) and Jamon Brown (offensive tackle), fourth-round tackle Andrew Donnal, sixth-round guard Cody Wichmann and seventh-rounders Martin Ifedi (defensive end) and Bryce Hager (linebacker). Sixth-round receiver Bud Sasser was waived last week with a non-football injury designation.

How this draft class is ultimately graded will channel through the handiwork of Gurley. The Rams are taking a patient approach with his recovery, but if healthy, he is bound to pay off with his special tackle-breaking abilities and blazing speed.
