Almost a week before the draft, there hasn't been many rumors of trades. Of course there's the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade with the New York Jets for Revis that could transpire on draft day, but besides that things have been quiet. Maybe too quiet?
Luckily the Atlanta Falcons decided to stir up the pot. According to multiple reports, the Falcons are mulling the trade up option. So who are the Falcons after? A corner back, tight end, or maybe a defensive linemen, but honestly who cares. The main thing is that the Falcons could be willing to trade up, and after listening to Rich Eisen's podcast, Rams general manager Les Snead didn't sound opposed to trading one of his picks.

Here's a quote from Les Snead when he was on Eisen's podcast: "I do love picks, I do love to help someone out for a small price". Sounds like he would be willing to trade one of those first round picks. But the Falcons most likely don't want to move from 30 to 22, so it's most likely for the 16th pick.
Let's say the Rams trade their 16th pick, because there's a lot of depth and a few players on their board are still available. They might be able to grab an extra 2nd rounder, and still end up with 2 picks in the first round. Or maybe the Rams will move down for a couple of mid-round draft selections.
Basically it's impossible to know what compensation the Rams would get in a trade, so I won't keep throwing darts at the board. All I know is if the Falcons need help, the Rams are willing to pitch in, but it will come with a price.
