St. Louis Rams Will Trade No. 2 Pick
The St. Louis Rams will trade the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. A Rams trade might not come until the draft gets closer, but league sources revealed on Monday (Feb. 27) that a deal is definitely coming. This appears like the first move for the Rams to find out which suitors are serious about trading up to draft Robert Griffin III out of Baylor. Those same sources state that the Rams have had early trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins.
The Rams have the quarterback they are happy with in Sam Bradford, who suffered through some injuries in the 2011 NFL season that hurt the Rams quite a bit. He was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, giving the Rams a young quarterback for many years to come. Knowing that Griffin should become the No. 2 pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the franchise is making a calculated move to trade out of the spot and load up on potential assets.
This is going to become a huge story to follow in the NFL, especially as rumors start to grow about which teams have the lead to acquire that No. 2 pick. It certainly makes it easier to figure out the draft board if Andrew Luck and Griffin come off the board in the first two picks, but there are a number of teams that could really use a "fix" at the quarterback position. The losers in the battle for Griffin may end up becoming the top suitors for Peyton Manning if the Indianapolis Colts decide to part ways with the future hall of famer.
Which team do you think has the best chance to complete a trade with the St. Louis Rams to draft Robert Griffin III? What should the Rams look for in a trading partner that can help fix that roster?
