Hi Ram's Fans!
I hope your Christmas and New Year went well. I've been plotting and planning what to do with our 2nd pick.Here is my newest idea. The keys to my logic are three fold:
"Don't be Greedy." "Teams target specific players" "Les Sneed is Sneaky"
Forward to the 2014 Draft-
Snead trades 2nd pick to Jacksonville for a Jacksonville's 1st and 35th pick. (Not very greedy)
Jacksonville will probably draft a quarterback. When draft day comes Jacksonville will know exactly which quarterback they want. Jacksonville will be afraid the other quarterback needy teams will trade with Rams and take their Golden Boy. All Snead wants from the trade is Jags.3rd and 35th.
Rodger Goodell- With the 2nd pick of the 2014 draft the Jacksonville Jaguars select Blake Bortles! The clock is running on the Rams.
At this point there are Three Quarterback Needy Teams- Cleveland at 4, Oakland 5, and Minnesota 8. And only ONE TOP QB. Let me digress for a moment. When Snead had the 2nd pick, he would have been smart to talk to the Jags, Cleveland, Oakland, and Minnesota. Following the Ram/Jags trade Snead knows which teams are salivating for a franchise quarterback, and Snead knows who wants Jadeveon Clowney.
Snead trades Ram's 3 to Cleveland for Cleveland's 4, 26th, and 36th pick.
With the 3rd pick of the 2014 draft the Cleveland Browns select Johnny Manziel! The clock is running on the Rams.
Clowney and Watkins are still on the board, and if the Texans drafted Clowney with the1st pick than one of the BIG THREE QB's is still on the board. Either way Snead can auction off this pick too.
Snead trades Rams 4 pick to Oakland for Oakland's 5, and 37th pick.
Rodger Goodell- With the 4th pick of the 2014 draft the Oakland Raiders select Sammy Watkins! The clock is running on the Rams.
At this point Clowney and Jake Mathews are both on the board. If you were Snead would you dare trade down again? It depends if the Rams would rather draft Clowney or Mathews. If the answer is Clowney, then Snead should pull the trigger now, and take Clowney, but if Snead values Mathews more, I believe Snead could squeeze Atlanta for another 2nd round pick. Walters Draft says that Atlanta covets Clowney.
It's your turn to complete a 3 round Mock Draft. Please fill in the blanks
Bridgewater, Bortles, Manziel, and S. Watkins are off the board.
