    Rams deal #2 pick to Skins

The Indianapolis Colts are expected to take Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick.
    Here it is from the NFL network. I felt like we needed news about something besides bountygate. Personally, I love this trade. I know that Blackmon will be gone by 6 (I expect the browns to take him at 4) but there are plenty of quality players still on the board and we need these extra picks to to build this franchise. Time will tell what happens, but I trust Fisher and friends will fill some big holes on both sides of the ball with these picks.

    Can you spell "b-l-o-c-k-b-u-s-t-e-r" kids? I knew you could.

    And after Blackmon's pro day drops I'm not sold on him.

    Very nice return for that pick.

    With two No.1's for the next two years, we have a real chance to lift ourselves off the doormat.

    My two favorite NFL teams:

    1. St. Louis Rams
    2. Any team playing the Redskins in the 2012 or 2013 seasons.
