LA's original football team is back! The Los Angeles Rams are loaded with young talent on both sides of the ball. Here's five players we're excited to watch next season in LA.
Todd Gurley - RB
Anytime you can be in the same sentence as Rams' great Eric Dickerson, you're doing something right. Gurley is the first Rams' rookie to rush for 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns since Dickerson did it in 1983. Before he comes to LA, Gurley is also headed to the Pro Bowl in his first season.

Robert Quinn - DE
Drafted in 2011, Quinn has already been to two Pro Bowls and was All-Pro in 2013. That same season he led the NFL in sacks with 19. Slowed by injuries this past season, expect Quinn to come out of the gates hungry to prove he can once again be an elite pass rusher in the NFL.

Aaron Donald - DT
The former Pittsburgh Panther is yet another weapon on the Rams' stout defensive line. Donald has been a Pro Bowl selection each of his first two years in the league and was named to the All-Pro team in 2015. Quarterbacks coming to LA in 2016 beware.
Tavon Austin - WR
Drafted 8th overall by the Rams in 2013 draft, the diminutive receiver has serious speed - Austin ran a 4.3 40-yd at the NFL combine. The Rams put that speed to good use in 2015 with the wide receiver catching five touchdowns in addition to rushing for four more.
Chris Long - DE
Long is Los Angeles football royalty as the son of former LA Raider great Howie Long. Drafted second overall in 2008, Long was also slowed by injury last season but has previously led the Rams in sacks and twice produced double-digit sacks in a season.
