    Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    Per Rotoworld


    According to NFL.com's Albert Breer, "some" teams view the Rams' No. 22 pick as a "potential landing place" for clubs that want to move up and draft a quarterback in the back half of round one.
    Our tentative expectation is West Virginia's Geno Smith, USC's Matt Barkley, Florida State's E.J. Manuel, and NC State's Mike Glennon will still all be on the board at the 22nd pick. The Rams will likely use their earlier first-rounder (No. 16) on a wide receiver or perhaps safety, but the 22nd pick may very well be for sale. Clubs potentially interested in a deal like this might include the Jaguars, Eagles, Cardinals, Jets, and Bills.


    Interesting.

    Exactly my view... though I'd say that #16 could be a WR, S, or OL, if any of the top guys fall somehow. Could be Ogletree, but I highly doubt it. We'll grab a 1000 snap player at #16.

    But as the article says, #22 is the place to go up and get someone before the rest of the playoff teams get your guy.
    I believe!

    Re: Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    Yeah, but what would a team offer for pick #22 ?????

    Take the Jaguars for example....they have #33 and #64 -- would that be enough to leave the #22 spot ????

    I don't know about that ......

    Re: Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    My completely uninformed gut feeling is that Buffalo won't select Nassib with their pick but would instead come at the Rams #22 to select him.

    I have no idea of what it would take to move up from their pick in round 2, but Snead would garner additional picks which is what he's been doing for the last year, and #22 is far more appropriate to the selection of Nassib or another QB for Buffalo. Their new coach was Nassib's college coach I think and I can see them being very aggressive getting them together again, but not stupid enough to select him ridiculously early. They could utilize that earlier pick on some other area of need, perhaps Tavon Austin.

    Re: Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    Thats the thing...the #22 pick is very valuable...I don't know how the Rams would get could value back...

    The only thing I see that is a possibility is that a team like the Eagles could trade bryce brown and their Round 2 pick.....other wise., would you take a 2nd , 3rd , and 7th for passing on a guy at 22 ????

    It could involve the 2014 draft.

    Just imagine walking into 2014 with 3 first rounders.

    Re: Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    Obviously what I would take to move out of #22 isn't important.......but I would move for the #41, a 4th and a #1 or #2 next year.

    I should mention, to support my earlier idea, that "at least" one of a group of WRs that I see being about the same will be available at #41 (Allen, Hopkins, Woods.....).

    Picking up more picks while still getting a decent target for SB seems a nobrainer.

    This just in:

    Per Rotoworld

    League sources have indicated that the Rams will either trade up, trade down, or make selections with their two first round picks.

    For the 22 pick to the Jaguars, I would want their second and third this year. Maybe a sweetener

    Blew my mind. I wonder how they got sources with such good information.

    Re: Rams #22 a trading "hot-spot"?

    Trading one of the first round picks is part of my strategy - only if I get good value for the pick as the Rams can use it now or hopefully pick up another 2nd or 3rd and grab some more OL depth down the line. Let's hope it works out well and the Rams get what they want and an extra pick.

    That's nothing, my sources tell me the Rams have players they're interested in.

    In my opinion, that would be required. The Rams need to bankroll that trade with the Redskins into additional picks over 4-6 years. The Rams could be picking up draft picks when RG3 is out of football with his knee injury in 3 years.

    Couldn't agree more!

    I've always been an advocate for the trade of the pick last year because of it's unique ability to play with those picks. Our front office has shown willingness to do so last year with trading further back with Dallas. I hope we can continue that trend and keep the "RG3" trade rolling for years to come.
