OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Quarterback Jared Goff has signed with the Los Angeles Rams, along with his fellow five draft picks.

The Rams announced the formality Thursday.

The team didn’t announce financial terms of the four-year deal for Goff, who was the No. 1 pick in the draft after three seasons at California. All first-round NFL contracts include a fifth-year option.

Los Angeles traded up to grab Goff, and coach Jeff Fisher hopes the quarterback will start the opening game of the Rams’ return season in Southern California.

The Rams also formally signed their other five draft picks: tight end Tyler Higbee, receiver Pharoh Cooper, tight end Temarrick Hemingway, linebacker Josh Forrest and receiver Michael Thomas.

The Rams are in their second week of voluntary offseason practices. Their workouts conclude next week.
