If you’re a Los Angeles Rams fan, you should be thrilled to hear this news. Florida Gators edge rusher Jachai Polite stated the Rams were his most pleasant meeting in his combine press conference:

Here’s Polite’s thoughts on the Rams’ Head Coach Sean McVay:

And if Polite wasn’t already the perfect Ram, here’s some San Francisco 49ers bashing we can all get behind:
#Florida EDGE Jachai Polite said that when he met with the 49ers at the Combine, they didn’t even really talk football with him at all. “They just bashed me the whole time... Idk.”— Trevor Sikkema (@TampaBayTre) March 2, 2019
Polite is generally considered to be a pass-rush specialist who isn’t fantastic against the run, but I don’t think it’s a major concern either. Polite came in with these measurements at the combine:

203. #Florida DE Jachai Polite
Height: 6-2 5/8
Hand: 9 6/8
Arm: 32 5/8
Wingspan: 80 2/8
Obviously his size isn’t fantastic, but it’s not a large issue either, especially when Polite’s best potential fit will be with a 3-4 defense. In three college seasons, Polite racked up 28.5 tackles-for-loss, 15 sacks, four pass deflections, and eight forced fumbles.
The Rams and Jachai Polite would make a perfect marriage as he’d offer some much needed pass rush help along the edge. Could #31 finally be the spot which allows Polite to finally “retire moms” as he desires?
