Gado Gets Praise

Rams running back Samkon Gado is one of the rare players to receive praise from head coach Steve Spagnuolo so far in Rams training camp.

“He’s a smart football player. Guys that have the ability to play two positions are really, really valuable in this league. So we’ll keep cranking him. And I watch Sam, too, in every special-teams period taking a lot of reps. He’s a warrior out there. I have a lot of respect for Sam.”

It looks like Gado is moving up the depth chart after I predicted he would be cut.  He can fill in at fullback and play special teams, which increases his value.  With the struggles of Antonio Pittman to impress the Rams brass in camp, Sam has also moved up to the number 3 running back.

He is certainly someone to keep your eye on in the Rams first preseason game on Friday night.
