During this time of crazy rumors, player trades, RFA tender singings, etc., there also seems to be a realigning of expectations from teams on just exactly what value in the draft they can expect in return for a player trade.
Examples include the recent McNabb and Marshall trades where teams received basically 2nd rounders in return. Now we are hearing that other players may only now be worth a 3rd or possibly a 4th rounder?
Here is the scenario I expect to transpire on draft day combined with two players on the trading block who I feel would be great additions to the Rams.
First, the #33 pick will be traded. I have no doubts. I expect that the Rams will receive a nice package for that pick. We will "slide down" a few picks (?) in the 2nd and pick up and extra pick (or 2). I am hoping (jeje) that we pick up an extra 3rd rounder so that we can keep, for ourselves, the first pick a top the 3rd round.
Here is where I get to play Billy D. and a trade comes in. The two players I really like and would like to see in a Rams uniform this season are:
1) Tony Scheffler (TE) from Denver
2) Albert Haynesworth (DT) from Washington
Scheffler could easily become Bradford's favorite and most realiable target. What a nice gift for the incoming Rams QB. Haynesworth, a Pro Bowl player, could fill the "I want Suh drafted" crowd and with our organization's connection with people in Washington (Haslett) we could and should include Carriker as part of the trade package.
One or both? It is possible....
GO RAMS !!!!
