It wasn’t a great debut season for Rams franchise rookie QB Jared Goff.

Over at NFL.com, Gregg Rosenthal dropped his final QB rankings for the 2016 season, and LA Rams franchise rookie QB Jared Goff came in dead last at 32nd:

Goff deserves a fresh start with an NFL-caliber coaching staff, but the depths of his struggles should not be ignored. By some measures, Goff passed Ryan Leaf as the least efficient rookie quarterback ever with at least 200 dropbacks.

Goff's development will be one of the stories to track next season.

The rankings organized the QBs into tiers: “Best of the best,” “Top shelf,” “Part of the solution,” “Middle of the pack,” “Tier mediocre,” and finally “Known unknowns.” Goff comes in at the bottom of that final tier.

The rest of the tier consists of:

26.) Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers
27.) Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars
28.) Ryan Fitzpatrick, New York Jets
29.) Matt Barkley, Chicago Bears
30.) Robert Griffin III, Cleveland Browns
31.) Brock Osweiler, Houston Texans

It’s not a great group to be included among. It’s an even worse group to be at the bottom of.

And it’s indicative of the overwhelming job the Rams’ next head coach will have ahead of him to make something out of the NFL’s worst offense led by, at least what one writer is suggesting, the NFL’s worst quarterback.
