L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff is working with noted quarterbacks coaches Tom House and Adam Dedeaux, according to an ESPN report from last week.

Goff, 22, is working at 3dQB in Los Angeles. Their notable clients include 2016-17 NFL MVP Matt Ryan. Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Carson Palmer, and Tom Brady are just some of the notable quarterbacks who have worked with House and Dedeaux. The two former baseball pitchers, House and Dedeaux, designed a program that utilizes biomechanics to get the most out of quarterbacks.

The 2016 No. 1 overall pick will use the program’s focus on conditioning, mechanics, nutrition and mental approach to the quarterback position to improve on his rookie season. Goff completed 54 percent of his passes for five touchdowns, seven interceptions and 1,089 passing yards in seven starts.

Football Outsiders ranked Goff last in quarterback DVOA and DYAR. DVOA is their advanced metric for measuring a player’s value per play, while DYAR ranks their total value for a team.

Otherwise, Pro Football Focus graded Goff as the No. 33 quarterback out of 34. The Rams’ rookie quarterback registered a 39.7 accumulative grade from the subscription service. Thus, Goff has his work cut out for him.

Still, the Rams’ new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said he has seen the benefits of the quarterback program. He said they offer quarterbacks training that coaches can not, due to the time constraints and workout restrictions.

LaFleur said they train to keep quarterbacks’ core and shoulders strong. The former Falcons quarterback coach said he saw that with Ryan last year.  LaFleur said Ryan’s arm strength did not waiver during Atlanta’s Super Bowl run.

Goff began working with Dedeaux and House before LaFleur even joined the Rams. The Rams quarterback is still experimenting with his offseason program, according to LaFleur.
