    Yeah I can relate to where you are coming from. I sell real estate here in so cal and sometimes my own clients will do and pay anything to get what they want. It goes against all common sense when emotions get involved. The Rams will be dealing from a position of strength. We can simply stay and take Jake at two and will match value with need. The Rams won't be desperate to try and move back in fear they will have to reach at two. It's really early to be talking about trade value today, lets see how the market looks in three months, who is hot and who is a must get.

    The Browns got upset when they lost out on the trade with the Rams before, but that was because they got outbid by the Redskins. If the Browns fall in love with a QB at 2, and another team comes calling as well, they may well throw the other first rounder in as well two secure the deal.

    If the Browns were to offer their first, second and third round picks for #2, that would be within 10 points of an even trade on the Trade Value Chart.

    My understanding is that the Browns weren't upset they were outbid.

    They actually outbid the Redskins.

    However, the structure of the Browns offer was not as good in the Rams front office eyes. They had front loaded the picks, but the Rams preferred to have them spread out over three years. Smart for them, as we saw - we ended up getting the #2 pick this year because of that, and it gave the Rams scouts more time to investigate their picks.

    Round 2: Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
    I got to watch this kid all year long. Heck of a ball player who can play either safety position. Put him in the box; put him in centerfield. Either way, he can make plays. I like it.
    Round 3: Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee
    Another intriguing pick. A mountain of a man, but comes with questions: Will his conditioning meet NFL standards? Can he hone his technique to play with leverage? How long will it take him to go from raw to refined? If the answers turn out right, this kid could be a monster.
    Round 5: Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana
    I read something on this kid the other day. I've never seen him play, but I like what I read. Sounds like a hard worker and team leader.

    If we had an RG3/Luck-type draft again, I would agree with you, but I don't see Clowney or the #2 QB drawing that kind of interest.

    Seems like a lot to give up just to move up 2 spots, but if the Browns were dumb enough to do it I'm all for it

    They didn't outbid the Redskins as if they had then Snead would have taken their deal.

    There is no definitive proof of what the Browns offered, and it's actually thought that the original offer the Browns made wasn't as good as the 3 first rounders and a second rounder that Washington ultimately gave. The talk after that the Browns offered the same as Washington sounded to me (and many others) like the Browns trying to appease their fans.

    Assuming the Browns did offer their two first rounders and a second rounder that year, and a first rounder the next year, but the Rams valued the two future first rounders from the Redskins more, then it is incorrect to say the Redskins didn't out bid the Browns.
