Who is Andrew Helmick?

We’ve been hearing a lot about Mr. Helmick at training camp lately so it’s time to dig into his history and see what we can learn about this widely unknown player.

His mom Jeanie is a physical education major which probably says a lot about being brought up healthy and athletic. Andrew claims Kansas City, MO as his home town, and that’s where is football ability first showed up.

First-team all-conference on offense and defense as a senior at Winnetonka High School playing for "The Griffins" ... second-team all-conference wide receiver and defensive back in 2007.

He attended college at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri.

2009 - Andrew played in nine games with eleven receptions for 127 yards. Seven rushes for 88.

2010 – Played in eleven games with 20 receptions for 437 yards and 6 TD’s. 12 rushes for another 27 yards, and a playoff breakout game with 5 receptions and 108 yards/2 TD’s. Longest reception of 64 yards with 21.9 yards per catch for the year.

2011 - Named Lindenwood's Most Valuable Offensive Player
Played eleven games with 56 receptions, 901 yards and 12 TD’s averaging 81.9 yards per game. Eleven of those 12 TD’s were over 20 yards. Andrew also averaged 32 yards per kickoff return with one return for a TD. Rushed five times for over 50 yards, and even completed a pass for 9 yards. Ended the year with 1308 all-purpose yards.

Andrew owns the Lindenwood record for receiving yards 2,828, TD’s 32, and receptions 153. Amassing an amazing 100 yard receiving games (12), and 200 yard games (4).

Andrew spent some time at mini-camps with the Falcon’s and Brown’s before bringing his skills and sub 4.3 speed to Rams camp, as an undrafted free agent.

Here’s a little 2 minute interview video form 101ESPN: http://vimeo.com/68859706 where he talks about the transition to the NFL and how he is been putting in time at the slot and Z positions.

Andrew compares himself to Danny Amendola or Victor Cruz because they run great routes and catch the ball on any down, especially in clutch situations.

Will he make a roster spot as the number 6 receiver?

I think so, not only because of his skill but his versatility. He’s no stranger to being a kick returner.

Good Luck Andrew!
