This post came about as a response to idafatboy's recent post about The Rams trading back. It was an interesting post with real possibilities. I thought that The Bengals may consider trading up. They have two picks in the first round. With a reasonable offer; it may serve The Rams well to move back to 17. After the jump, I will post a scenario for this trade. Thanks to idafatboy for giving me the idea.
A lot depends on having a willing trade partner, who is willing to give a generous compensation package .The fartherThe Rams trade back, the higher the asking price. Teams that may be willing to pay the price to move up:
Cleveland from the 22nd position.
Cincinnati moving up from 17
The wildcards would be The Browns and Bengals. Both have two picks in the first round,
The Bengals are on the verge of becoming a great team with their recent drafts. They could move up to six and secure CB Stephon Gilmore; while using their 22nd pick in round one to take RB David Wilson. As a starting point:; a third and fifth round pick for 2012, and a 2nd rounder for 2013.
This would give The Rams:
A deal that could net 10 2012 draft picks and a 2nd rounder in 2013, may be worth the price to move back to 1(17).
