It’s no longer a question of ‘if’, but a matter of ‘when’ the St. Louis Rams trade away the number two overall pick in this year’s NFL draft.
Long rumored to be up for sale, ESPN is now reporting that the Rams will trade the #2 pick before the draft. The Browns, Redskins and Dolphins have all had talks with the Rams according to the report. There have even been talks with teams outside the top 10.
St. Louis is apparently looking for something similar to that of the 2004 draft trade between the Chargers and Giants for Eli Manning. That trade netted San Diego a pair of first-round picks, a third and a fifth.
With Robert Griffin’s blistering Combine workout over the weekend, many speculate that the value for the Rams number two pick has only increased. The Colts with the top pick have stated they will draft a successor to Peyton Manning, but have not said whether they’re taking Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.
