  • Draft day trade scenario

    I read a posting on turfshowtimes.com and the poster (Vanram) suggested trading the #1 pick to denver for their 11th pick and Brandon Marshall. Brandon is a top receiver, he is 6'4" and only 25 yrs old. We can put him with Avery and we can still draft someone good with 11th pick, maybe Brian Price(DT). We get price, brandon before 2nd round pick. I like it !!

    Not only do I not like it, I don't even see how it makes sense. Who is it that Denver wants at #1 that they are willing to pull the trigger on a trade like this? And for the Rams, we drop way too far back to get the kind of impact player we need and all we get in return is a malcontent WR who already has been suspended in the past by both the league and his own team. I say "pass" with a capital P.

      I don't like it either. As soon as he gets here, he will get in trouble and get suspended, and he will leave whenever his contract is up.

        This is a draft that is heavy with good DL players and rather get brandon then a overhyped, overrated QB from philly. I'm hoping Brandon can realize that he will see plenty of catches with Rams and this also helps Avery. Keeping the pick and drafting Suh is not the answer with so many holes. Even if we don't make trade with denver i'd still like us to trade pick to top 10.

          Save a lot of $$ by not paying for the first overall pick to; hedges a lot of the bust risk (in regards to money). I like the idea of trading down (maybe multiple times) and getting more picks and filling more holes, but like cleveland last year did they really get a whole lot for trading down from 5th to 30th? a third and a second???

            Exactly. Heck, if you don't like Brandon then get another receiver. I just don't like the idea of drafting Suh when we can trade down and get a bunch of picks that "might" help us.

              Why do you people always assume that by trading down we will get a "bunch" of picks? We would maybe get 1 maybe two extra picks and neither of which would be a first rounder. So we are basically swapping spots in the first round to earn maybe 1 3rd and a fifth rounder. Doesnt sound so attractive when its laid out that way does it?

                We can hope we get a team that will do the opposite and give us more. I'm saying trade down if it's worth it. You hear people talking about DL/DE but who is going to throw the ball? PLEASE DON'T SAY VICK !! OVERRATED !

                  More importantly who is going to block? We have a guy who can throw the problem is he needs an o-line that can provide protection. The o-line needs to be fixed before anyone can throw the ball.

                    Successful organizations don't rely on "hope", "luck", or the other team being, really, really stupid. I'd like to think that we want to be a successful organization.

                      Brandon Marshall comes with a ton of baggage, and I think the general perception is that there is a significant drop-off in draft value behind the top two defensive tackles (Suh and McCoy) and the top two quarterbacks (Bradford and Clausen). If those four players are off the board, then maybe we hope Derrick Morgan is still available at defensive end. Dez Bryant wouldn't be bad value at #10 except we'll have just filled our need there with Marshall. Who else is a good option for us there? It seems to me that we don't really benefit from moving into that neighborhood.

                        Hmm. I don't think this idea is too bad.

                        First, we acquire Brandon Marshall. I think giving him a fresh start in a new scenario will help him revive his career. Also, we have a good chance in reuniting him with teammate Tony Scheffler in the FA.

                        Second, we move down to 11. What if Bradford or Clausen is available here? Do we pull the trigger? Yes. I'm also thinking a monster DE in Derrick Morgan will be available here. Rolando McClain and Joe Haden have a good chance of also being here too.


                        So what I'm thinking is that we acquire a very good player with our first round pick, gives our offense a dynamic playmaker with Marshall, and then grab maybe Jared Odrick in the second round.

                          Our O-line was not that bad last year. When all of our starters were in, our line was starting to gell and was actually pretty solid.

                          The only time where our line struggled was during the last part of the season where Jason Smith was out, Jacob Bell was out, Jason Brown was struggling with an injury, and Richie Incognito was cut.

                            All of our QBs got hurt this year. That means the line was bad all year. Good lines don't let 3 QBs get injured; one twice.

                              All our QB's got hurt this year does not translate to our line was bad all year.

                              We have weak bodied QB's behind center.


                              It doesn't take constant pounding to injure a QB. It can take one freakish accident to injure a QB.

                                The Rams should trade down with every pick
                                by evil disco man
                                If I was in the war room running the Rams draft, I would simply trade down with every single pick, eventually accumulating the entire fourth round and selecting an entire new roster. I don't know why they don't just trade down and get extra picks every time, it's so easy. I can't believe they didn't think of that. Much better than reaching on a player that fits the system.

                                Is there any scenario that we would want to trade down and get either an extra 2nd or 3rd round pick?

                                What would be realistic to expect?
                                Down 5 for 3rd?
                                Down 10 for second?

                                We need so much help on defense it would be nice to get an extra pick. I would like to upgrade at TE and OL (1 G or C) but that may have to come via free agency or next off-season.

                                Another draft trade down rumor......Disturbing
                                by LARAM
                                I listened to some ESPN analyst, talk about how Chicago loves Darren McFadden to the point, that they may be willing to trade up to get him.

                                This scares me.....With other rumors of Dallas and Oakland wanting him, in order for Chicago to possibly get Mcfadden, they might possibly have to trade up to at least the #3 pick or even #2. This could be a possibility, and I hate to say it, but it isn't all that crazy sounding. I guess alot depends on what Miami does as well. I guess if a trade like this happened, we would all be blindsided.

                                I am totally against a trade back to the 14th pick, but what would be reasonable compensation if something like this happened? How could something like this benefit the Rams, and what type of strategy would we use for our picks.

                                I just think it's absolutely crazy to trade back this far, and I know this is all speculative, but jeez, What kind of deal would it take for the Rams to move back that far?

                                Not a lot of trade partners for the #2 pick
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                There are a number of reasons why a trade down to acquire more choices might make sense for the Rams, but I'm not sure there are many potential trade partners.

                                The most likely reason a team would trade up to #2 is to acquire one of the top QBs in the draft (presuming Stafford and Bradford both declare). However, most of the teams at the top of the draft don't need QBs. Kansas City, sitting at #3, would probably take a QB, so they could be willing to give up a pick (maybe a 3rd rounder) to swap with the Rams. Of course, that requires a bluff on the Rams' part (convincing KC that the Rams won't simply pass on a QB).

                                After that, the next several teams are unlikely to draft a QB:

                                (4) Seattle - possible, as Hasselbeck is getting up there and coming off an injury, but would they make an intra-division trade?
                                (5) Cleveland - no (Brady Quinn)
                                (6) Cincinnati - doubtful (Carson Palmer)
                                (7) Oakland - no (JaMarcus Russell)
                                (8) Jacksonville - no (David Garrard)
                                (9) Green Bay - no (Aaron Rodgers, Brian Brohm)
                                (10) San Fran - yes (but, in division)

                                As for teams with multiple first rounders, there are only two. Detroit, which has the first and 20th, does not present as a trade partner. Even if the Rams wanted to trade for the 20th and 33rd picks (not a match on the value chart), I doubt that Detroit wants to pay the first and second picks in the draft. The Eagles will have two of the last 12 selections (depending on the playoffs), but that also would not be a good swap. Unless the Eagles are planning to get rid of McNabb, I doubt they'd trade three top picks (two 1s and 2 or 3, for example) to jump up and take a QB.

                                So, don't be surprised if the Rams stay at #2, whether they wish to or not.

                                Now when I say trade up I do not mean for the #1 pick. I had a thought today. Why not trade up and get two first rounders this year. I understand we cleared some cap space this year and we have a lot of needs but listen to this thought.

                                Try to pull a trade with KC. I know sounds crazy but they have a lot of money tied up with Cassel this year and may not want to spend the money on the #3 pick.

                                A trade with KC; give them 2nd this year and 1st next year and another pick (maybe second in 2011) but they would probably ask for more.

                                If this were to happen this would give St. Louis choice at LT and Curry. (If Detroit doesn't take Curry. If they did I would never do this trade)

                                This would help solidify the O-Line and get the best player in the draft that could be a player to make an immediate impact on Defense.

                                What do you think of this scenario???? :helmet:
