A video on draft night of Rams head coach Sean McVay laughing at the Patriots for using a first-round pick on offensive lineman Cole Strange went viral. McVay laughed and said, "And we wasted our time watching him thinking he'd be at 104 maybe."
It does look like the Rams head coach and his general manager Les Snead were criticizing the pick.

Snead talked about the viral video on Pro Football Talk's podcast. He said that McVay reached out to both Bill Belichick and Cole Strange to let them know he wasn't making fun of them.
From Pro Football Talk:
“Because of how that video went viral in fun, that was the chemistry between us and us going through this process trying to evaluate,” Snead said Friday night, “but I know Sean talked to Cole this morning, did talk to Coach Belichick this morning just to say, ‘Hey, we — there was nothing — we really like that player.’ Sean was just jest at myself for, ‘Hey, why did we waste our time on him again?’ And I can say this . . . a long time ago, I forget when it was, but the New England Patriots drafted a guy named Logan Mankins from right up the road in Fresno. He was a left tackle, they moved him inside. About 10 years later, he had a lot of Pro Bowls and Super Bowl.”
McVay is coming off of a Super Bowl win and he's still kissing Belichick's ring. Come on McVay, laugh at the draft pick then grab your junk if anyone asks you about it. You're on top laugh at whoever you want.
