Twitter Falling in Love with Tyler Higbee and Nelson Spruce

"Little Baby Gronk" and Spruuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuce may be playing their way onto the team.

TE Tyler Higbee

The hype train for Higbee started to pick up after the 'family day' scrimmage the Rams held last week.

Though this next one baffles me. It's pretty easy to identify Higbee as Jared Cook's replacement in the offense. Did we once hear Jeff Fisher mention Cook's poor blocking?

LITTLE BABY GRONK. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has averaged 63 receptions, 926 yards, and 11 TDs in his career. I'd be happy Higbee can give the Rams HALF of those numbers as a rookie - which would coincidentally put him in discussion as the Rams best receiver.

I love the way this sounds, but didn't we hear this about every big body that has been brought in the past 4 years?

He's not going to be polished, but he's the matchup nightmare that can win with athleticism alone.

WR Nelson Spruce

Well that escalated quickly... Andrew Siciliano trying to ground people, but sees the fit just like everyone else.

Spruce was banged up in his first preseason game, but Jeff Fisher wasn't concerned. For some reason I'm hesitant to trust coach's opinion with knee injuries.

Somewhere in LA, Jared Goff is smiling (and icing his non-throwing shoulder I hope)
