    Of the potential trade partners, which would provide the best "futures."

    Assume that all of the trade offers for the No. 2 pick include a 2015 first round selection.

    Which team (among the likely trade partners) would be the most tempting to make a deal with due their prospect of having a high pick in 2015?

    Hard to choose between Jacksonville and Cleveland, but I'm going to go with Cleveland. It's just a mess there right now, it seems.

    I gotta concur with Nick. If we get the Browns 2015 pick, we very well could be holding the #1 overall pick. Then we get to put that on the block for whoever wants Mariotta/Winston.

    I went with Minnesota. I think they have some significant issues, and they also are likely to have a tough time within their own division.

    So, what you're saying is, it could be 2016 or 2017 before we can complete the list of players obtained through the RGIII trade?

    EXACTLY! Truly the gift that keeps on (and on and on) giving.

    Rams Draft Warner; Finally Complete 2012 Trade
    May 15, 2024

    The St. Louis Rams used the first overall selection in yesterday's NFL Draft to select Elijah Storm Warner, QB, Missouri. Warner, the son of former Rams QB Kurt Warner, is expected to start, taking over for long-time starter Sam Bradford, who retired at end of the 2023 season, completing an illustrious career that included three Super Bowl championships. This selection, made with a pick originally held by the 0-16 New England Patriots, marks the completion of a trade the Rams made in 2012 with the Washington Redskins. The Rams have made additional trades each year since that original deal, extending the bounty received for twelve years. In light of the short and unremarkable career of Robert Griffin, III, this trade is regarded as the most lopsided deal in NFL history.

    I think it depends on who we're targeting with our first pick.

    If we're targeting Matthews/Robinson/Clowney, I'll take Cleveland. Only moving down two spots all but guarantees one of them is still on the board.

    If we're not targeting one of those three prospects, I'd be down for whatever other trade gives us the most in return. I'd go with Minnesota. They're in desperate need of a QB who can compliment AP while he's still in his prime.

    It's pretty much a toss up between Cleveland and Jacksonville for me.

    In the first likely scenario CLE is our partner. Voted Browns.

    Re: Of the potential trade partners, which would provide the best "futures."

    When projecting which team will struggle the most in 2015 it was an easy pick for me. At this point in time I can't see Oakland getting out of its own shadow let alone having any semblance of success.

    My reasoning is as follows:

    1.) I think Gus Bradley will get things turned around in Jax. May not be totally done by next year but I like the direction he is taking that team.

    2.) I know with what has transpired recently many think the Browns are the laughing stock of the league, but in all reality they do have some good talent and a potentially nasty front 7on defense. If they ever get just decent QB play they could surprise some people.

    3.) The problem last year with Atlanta was injuries. They were exposed for not having much depth. Of course one could make this point with most teams in the NFL. I look for them to rebound.

    4.) The Vikings have got some intrinsic talent also. See my comments on the Browns for these guys also.

    5.) In Tampa they had a college guy as HC. Big mistake. Lovie has always fielded decent teams and it is not unreasonable to think that he will have the Bucs playing .500 ball as soon as next year.

    Well, guys, by using the process of elimination this leaves the Raiders. And it leaves them where they belong. In last place with 4 - 5 wins and the St. Louis Rams picking at the 2 - 4 spot.

    Sounds good to me!!

    Oakland and/or Jacksonville get my vote.

    Funny how dysfunction leads to losing....Cleveland. While it certainly would work well for us I'm not so sure Cleveland makes the deal to jump up 2 spots and pays a king's ransom for the move. Unless the Combine changes much I don't think we'll know our trading partner until we're on the clock.

    Go Rams!

    Jacksonville have been cellar dwellers for years now, so they're my choice. Cleveland are absolutely a mess, but they at least have some pieces in place. I can't name a single Jacksonville player worth getting excited about.
