Jared Goff says the NFL playbook is like learning a new language

Jared Goff says after his first practice that learning a new offense in the NFL is like learning a different language. Goff is a smart kid and he should not have a hard time transitioning but after his first practice, Goff did admit, the NFL is different than college. A matter of fact, Goff said there are some similarities, but it is like learning a new language.

“The way they say it, and it’s absolutely right, it’s almost like learning a different language,” Goff said shortly after the Rams’ recent No. 1 overall draft pick completed his first (and quite informal) pro practice. “I felt like I picked it up as I went along, and it got better.”


“There is a lot that translates,” Goff said. “Most of the (shotgun) stuff translates, almost all of it. Then there’s under-center stuff that I’m picking up as I go along.”.

The Rams have some good players surrounding Goff, so it will be interesting to see how they do. The team drafted two tight ends in Temmarick Hemmingway and Tyler Higbee who will grow with Goff, and let’s not forget they landed Pharoah Cooper from South Carolina to go along with the Rams speedsters already on the roster.
