Terrell Burgess Jersey

While there are some questioning the Rams’ decision to draft Cam Akers and Van Jefferson in the second round, no one is criticizing them for selecting Terrell Burgess in the third round at No. 104 overall. Many are actually praising the Rams for selecting the versatile defensive back at that point in the draft, calling him a steal in Round 3.

Burgess only has one year of starting experience, but his versatility is his best asset and something that will get him on the field right away as a rookie. Sean McVay has even said the ideal scenario is for Burgess to be the starting nickel corner.

Les Snead was thrilled to come away with the Utah safety at No. 104, praising his position flexibility after the draft.

“Really, really impressed with his versatility. Our special teams coach liked him, so he’s going to make an impact on game day for the Rams in many different ways,” he said.

Director of draft management JW Jordan also praised Burgess for his versatility, saying he can play just about any position in the secondary.

“He’s a guy that can basically play anywhere on the backend that you need him to,” Jordan said.

Burgess will still have to beat out players such as David Long and Darious Williams for a starting job, but he certainly has the talent to be a Day 1 starter for the Rams.
