St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead have been candid about their willingness to trade the sixth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. All they need is an interested team, which is not as easy in the sixth spot as it was with the second, thanks to the presence of Robert Griffin III. However, another quarterback could be enough to lure the Kansas City Chiefs up in the first round.
Talk out of Chiefs land is that the team has some interest in Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the easy choice for the third best quarterback in the draft this year. Kansas City has Matt Cassel, but his effectiveness and long-term viability have been questioned, for obvious reasons.
Kansas City would have to trade up if they wanted Tannehill because the Dolphins are widely expected to have him high on their list. The Chiefs pick 11th and the Dolphins pick eighth. Of course, they might find a better deal trading with Jacksonville in the seventh spot, a team that is also said to be looking for a move down in the draft.
The wild card here is the Browns, who would also be willing to move down. They have done extensive scouting on Tannehill as well, and could draft him with the fourth pick. This is a move unlikely to happen until the first round is underway for that very reason.
