  • This could be the most exciting Rams draft

    With the new format being three days now it really benfits the Rams with the #1 overall pick in each round. The Rams have Bradford likely pegged at #1 overall (I still like Suh but Bradford is just as deserving). The first round intrigue will be if Cleveland wants to trade up and get him or not and if the Rams want to trade back into the first round for a player they like. If Cleveland does trade up it will make the rest of the draft interesting. What players will be at #7 and who would we take? If the trade happened we would likely add another second and third rounder as well. That would give us two high second rounders and two third rounders. That would give us four picks on the second day. Having the 1st pick in the second round makes it interesting and will keep us on the edge of our seats as players are falling day 1 of the draft there is a chance of us trading back into the first round for a player that falls (we tried it with J. Lau last year but he still fell to us). If we stand pat with the second rounder we will have a full day for trying to work out a deal for either more picks or more picks and a player. Say Cleveland don't trade with us in the first, passes on QB in the first, and Colt McCoy is on the board in the second round after we took Bradford in the first. Cleveland may decide to trade up to our spot to get McCoy possibly giving us one of their three third rounders as well as their second. The fourth round of the draft will start on day 3 with our selection. It again gives the Rams a full day to work out a deal after teams restack their draft board. It might be an ideal chance for us to trade our fourth round pick for a proven NFL player. Maybe even package our fourth round pick with a guy like Barron or Carriker in trade.

      2nd round trade
      by timsum1283
      so with the new format of the nfl draft, there will be a lot of down time between the 32nd pick and the 33rd. as someone previously mentioned that gives a lot of time for teams to be wheeling and dealing for 2nd round picks. If u are Billy D, what does it take for u to trade pick #33? players? picks?

      this is just me spitballing but every year the denver broncos seem to make a lot of draft day trades (and always seem to draft a rb). do u think if given the right situation they would be willing to trade Brandon Marshall or next year's 1st for the Rams 2nd this year? if so would u make that trade?

      it's likely that a player with first round talent will drop to round 2 like Best, Tate, Kindle, maybe even Mays/Dunlap. IMO if a player like Weatherspoon isn't there I would really like to trade down in round 2 and pick up some extra picks down the road. would you be interested in trading it for more picks/players or would u rather be content with staying at spot #33?

      If Rams trade pick #33 in round 2 for? What is it Worth?
      by Shan the Ram Man
      The last couple of years I've watched the NFL draft. The announcers have said, the first pick in round two on the second day of the draft is worth a bunch. It is like starting a whole new draft over again.

      If Rams trade the 1st round pick and get either Browns or Redskins 2nd round pick in this years draft. The Rams will be picking early in round two anyway with there pick.

      First option, Would Ram fans be happy trading pick #33 for a first round pick next year.

      Second option, trade down for more draft picks.

      Third, for a player and maybe a future pick.

      What would it take to trade back into Round 2?
      by AvengerRam_old
      Looking at the Trade Value Chart, there are a couple of possibilities:

      Package both 3rd round picks (#71, #92) for a second round pick
      The Rams two 3rd rounders are worth a total of 367 points. This equates to a second round pick in the range of pick #52-55.

      Package a 3rd (#71) and fourth (#113) round pick for a second round pick
      These picks are valued at 303 points, which equates to a selection at the end of the second round, around #59-61.

      Use future draft picks
      I would not even consider putting one of the Rams' two 2014 first round picks on the block at this point, but I might consider a deal that includes a Day 2 2014 pick if it meant getting one of the top safeties remaining (Cyprien, S.Thomas).

      Anyone like any of these options?

      Would we trade up for Cherilus?
      by MauiRam
      If Gosder Cherilus were available late in round one, and Rams wanted him, what would we have to give up in order to trade back into the first round - say from the 24th pick on down. Would this year's 2nd and next year's 4th rd picks be enough?

      24. Tennessee
      25. Seattle
      26. Jacksonville
      27. San Diego
      28. Dallas
      29. San Francisco (from Indianapolis)
      30. Green Bay
      * New England (pick forfeited)
      31. New York Giants

      One more thing: How could you not want a behemoth named "Gosder" on your roster? With a name like that, you just know he'll become a household name (for all the right reasons I might add!).
