    Unless some miracle happens it looks like we are "stuck" at #2

    I knew the Manziel chatter was all BS. No way Snead or Fisher draft him. So many people say Robinson is a future hall of famer and we need to beef up the OL so I would be OK with this pick. Now the question is what do we do at #13 ?

    "Sources tell the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that Sam Bradford was informed of the Johnny Manziel smokescreen by the Rams before it happened. The Rams aren't going to take a quarterback in Round 1, and probably won't in Round 2 either. They were just trying to drum up trade interest in the No. 2 overall pick by leaking Manziel interest, and they informed Bradford of the ploy so he didn't feel disrespected. The Post-Dispatch believes the Rams will take one of the top-two offensive tackles (Auburn's Greg Robinson or Texas A&M's Jake Matthews) if they get "stuck" with the second overall pick. "

    You would think that they would go full-smokescreen then and have Bradford talk during the recent public meeting saying that he is comfortable with increased competition, and teaching the new QB 'the finer points' at the position. Basically, you could have had Bradford act like it is a given and say he has been slow on his recovery etc.

    Nothing like having your hometown paper throw you under the bus! Actually, I think other GM's around the league are smart enough to know it was smokescreen.

    Go Rams!

    My sources tell me that everything we know is a smokescreen, and the Rams are really targeting a long snapper with the No. 2 pick.

    My sources said we were looking at kickers.

    Moral of the story - Just wait until the last week before the draft and then you can probably figure out how things are going to go down within a few scenarios. All the lead up to that point is just a waste of time.
