The Ram's pre-draft 2012 trade to move down from 2nd to 6th, gaining a 2nd and 2 first round picks, they became linked with the team that made the trade, the Washington Redskins, as well as the player they chose, RG3. These picks should be helpful in building a champion caliber team over the next few years, especially if they are low....
Initially I thought this trade might get us something like a mid-range pick but after keeping tabs on the redskins I've been sensing a little more panic and pessimism than media impressions of the rams. I know Redskins owner has been awful in terms of free agent spending (Albert Haynesworth the $100 Million Dollar man) but now see a host of other issues have emerged, leading some to wonder if Shannahan will even last the year.
I think calls for the coach are a bit early but check out this article on questions going into tonight's preseason opener and the Redskin's schedule. RG3 holding the ball too long and accuracy issues coupled with line questions leads to...well just ask Sam about last year. Not to mention these guys play the Cowboys, Eagles, and Giants twice a year I see these guys as in trouble, leading to a great draft for us.
What do you guys think? What is a reasonable win range? Will RG3 struggle to win right away? and most importantly, How high could these draft picks be in the next two years?
