Rams coach Sean McVay reveals four most coachable players on team

It is clear that the Rams’ most prominent players helped set the tone in following the guidance of McVay and his coaching staff this past season that allowed them to bring the franchise back to relevancy in the league. What is notable is that three out of these four players are on the offensive side of the ball.
What stands out is that veteran offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth was on this list with these young players. He was already an established talent as one of the best players in the league, and he was willing to take direction from the coaching staff for the betterment of the team, and it led to him putting together another impressive campaign. Aaron Donald is much of the same in the regard that he’s an established talent as one of the best defensive players in the league and took McVay’s staff guidance and took his game to the next level helping him win the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
Meanwhile, Jared Goff and Todd Gurley likely took under his wing given that they had a bright offensive coach leading the charge that had a strong game plan that worked their benefit in helping them take tremendous steps forward in his performances on the field. The fact that three of the most important players on the offensive side of the ball led the charge in being coachable speaks volumes of the type of team that Rams possess that could see more success in 2018 and beyond.
