Texas Tech QB Nic Shimonek was crisp in his first career start replacing first round draft pick Patrick Mahomes. In the 56-10 win over Eastern Washington, Shimonek completed his first 14 passes, coming one shy of a Tech record. He finished with 384 yards and 3 TDs.

OLB Samson Ebukam said rushing the passer is "what I do best." On his Eastern Washington teammate, WR Cooper Kupp, also getting drafted by the Rams: "I was just happy for him because he deserves it. When he got picked by them I was like, 'Yeah, that's the perfect team.' Then I thought to myself, 'What are the chances I get picked by the same team?' And it just happened and I was like, 'Woah, Eagles really do stick together.' That's awesome."

The Rams gave up their second fourth-round pick, 141st overall, and the 13th pick of the sixth round to draft Samson Ebukam at 125 overall. Outside linebacker; 6-3, 240. Good speed, explosiveness and football IQ, but still needs to develop, according to draft reports. Rams need more linebackers now that they're converting to a 3-4 system under Wade Phillips.

The Rams traded up from 141 to 125 with the Jets and selected LB Samson Ebukam, teammate of Cooper Kupp at Eastern Washington.

New Rams WR Cooper Kupp told local reporters he brings "versatility; a guy who's going to know the offense in and out and who's going to be ready to go Day 1." Asked about facing inferior competition at Eastern Washington, Kupp said: "People want to question that, that's fine. I'm going to go out and do what I do. And I believe that opinion will change soon."
