Jared Goff finds early success with Marcus Mariota’s advice

IRVINE, Calif — Shortly after the NFL draft, Jared Goff dialed up Marcus Mariota and asked for some advice.

After all, the newly minted No. 1 overall selection of the Los Angeles Rams — and presumptive future of the franchise — has a lot in common with Mariota, the Titans quarterback.

They share the same agent. They both were highly-hyped quarterbacks plucked in the top two picks of the draft. And both played in spread offenses in college, which can be tough to translate to the NFL.

So Mariota shared his secret.

It’s something Goff says he did countless times at home in the long offseason months. And it’s also something he says is already paying off in big dividends.

“Record yourself saying a play call. Then play it. Hear it. Draw it. Go through the progression. And then visualize it,” Goff told USA TODAY Sports Saturday evening, moments after the first training camp practice of his career. “So you kind of get reps, at least mentally as much as you would out here practicing. It’s really smart.”
