Bill O'Brien is moving up in the world. He's proven himself a QB guru (instead of being assumed one like McDaniels) so what does that mean for the Rams? Well it puts the possibility of Bridgewater not being a Texan into play. Now before you jump all over me, I'm not saying trade Sam and draft Teddy. I like Sam. I believe he's talented enough to take us to the big game. With that being said, I want to lay down this scenario: With O'Brien at the helm, Houston feels comfortable not taking a QB with the first pick. They instead choose to use a 2nd or 3rd rounder on the likes of Mettenberger, Murray or McCarron. That turns our 2nd overall pick into trade gold. It's possible we could get Cleveland's two first rounders. Here goes:
-We keep Saffold but Wells, Dahl, Dunbar are gone. Bradford, Langford, and Finnegan restructure to open up cap space.
-Texans skip on Bridgewater an instead take Matthews to fill a need.
-Browns trade us both first rounders (I'm not speculating as to future picks right now). We then sit at 4, 13, and somewhere around 26.
-We trade the 4th to Detroit (while Suh is a force, they still finished near the bottom of the league In sacks) for a first, second and fifth
-The Packers have a need at safety, so they trade us a 1st, 2nd, to move from 21ish to 13
-We now have 3 first rounders, 3 second rounders, a third, a fourth, two fifths, a sixth, and two sevenths (possibly another future first as well)
