Rams among 4 teams not sending head coach or GM to NFL combine
There’s a running joke that the Los Angeles Rams don’t care about the NFL draft because of the way they so frequently trade their picks. They also don’t have key members of the coaching staff and front office attend the NFL combine the way most other teams do.
The Rams will keep with their tradition of not sending Sean McVay or Les Snead to Indianapolis this week, one of four teams doing so this year. Neither McVay nor Snead are scheduled to speak to members of the media at Lucas Oil Stadium this week, staying back in Los Angeles instead of attending the combine festivities.
The Saints, Patriots and Chargers are the three other teams taking the same approach, according to Ben Volin.
Made it to Indy for Combine No. 12. Drills start on Thursday, but 28 teams will have a head coach and/or GM give a press conference on Tues and Weds.

Snead and McVay will likely still meet with Rams media members via video conference sometime this week, but it won’t be in the public capacity like many other coaches and GMs will hold their press conferences in.
The Rams have found that their coaching staff and front office will be better off working remotely and studying prospects from afar rather than watching them go through drills in person in Indianapolis.
Here’s the full press conference schedule for the coaches and GMs in attendance.
