Jared Goff, theLos Angeles Rams' presumed No. 1 pick in next week's NFL draft, has wrapped up his visit with the team in the L.A. area, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday afternoon.

Goff and fellow quarterback prospect Carson Wentz have been in town this week to meet with coaches.

Goff, the Californiaquarterback, and Wentz, of North Dakota State, also dined with Rams officials, the source told Schefter.

The Rams, who acquired the No. 1 overall selection from the Tennessee Titans in a blockbuster trade last Thursday, have been leaning toward using the pick on Goff, a source told Schefter earlier this week, but wanted to meet with both QBs and debate the decision before making a choice.

Tennessee sent the top selection, along with its fourth- (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) picks this year, to the Rams in exchange for Los Angeles' first-round pick (No. 15), two second-round selections (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76) in 2016. The Titans will also get the Rams' first- and third-round picks in 2017.

A team source also told Schefter earlier this week that one reason the Rams made this deal now is to give the team "two weeks to debate between Goff and Wentz. You can make a convincing case for both. Both are going to be good."
