Rams Sign 6th-Round Pick K Greg Zuerlein

This is not the same Greg Zuerlein that the St. Louis Rams just signed to a contract. But what a coincidence that two pro athletes would have that name.

The St. Louis Rams signed another draft pick on Tuesday night. Kicker Greg Zuerlein, the team's 6th-round pick, inked a four-year deal with the team. It makes him the fifth player from the team's draft class to sign a deal.

Zuerlein is a local product. He played his college ball at Western Missouri University after the University of Nebraska at Omaha nixed its football program. Averaging 2.3 field goals per game, he led the country last year and set an NCAA record with 21 consecutive successful field goal attempts. He set another record with a nine-for-nine field goals made on attempts of 50 yards or more.

The Rams were wowed enough after watching his pro day and hosting him for a private workout to make him the first pick of the 6th round. He was convincing enough that the team dropped incumbent kicker Josh Brown and his $2.7 million salary immediately after the draft.
