I love high draft picks. Who doesn't? It's like being a kid at Christmas and your mom has the biggest credit card at the best shopping mall in town. Bargains in some stores. Expensive items in others. Something for every taste. But unfortunately I can't buy everything (or I should say my parents [Kronke] can't). There's a limit.
But kind of like my parents liquor cabinet - which was high on a shelf - should they go there twice?
Something I wish was discussed more in here is the topic concerning the possibility that the Rams take someone high at #2, then 'trade up' from #13 to take another superstar at #3,4,5,6,7, or 8 etc. Why can't they pick high twice?
Snead has shown fearlessness in trading up or down. I also think he's getting better. In 'draft #1' for him he got Brockers as his 'superstar' pick, then possibly another one in Jenkins. In 'draft #2' he got two pure superstars (IMO) in Austin & Ogletree. He zeroed in on them like a cruise missile. Adios amigo.
So why wouldn't he do it again? Target acquired. Target lock. BOOM.
All this trade down from #2 business could be a smoke signal. For all we know they could have a pencil erection for Clowney and his twin sister Mack. Or maybe they want to pair Watkins with Britt and Jake Matthews = 30+ points per game here we come. The Rams could possibly even trade down from #2 to #4 and take a highly graded player, then immediately trade up from #13 to #5 to take their next prime target. Sorry suckas - they all gone now. Yeah. I bet you feel sick.
There's maybe 5-6 generally agreed upon potential 'superstar' (non-qb's) in this draft: Clowney, Mack, Barr, Robinson, Matthews, Watkins etc. Maybe also Ebron. Why can't THE RAMS get two (2) of them? Why not? I see no limits on Sneads mind. It seems like whoever the Rams want (such as Zac Stacy etc) they'll make the moves to get him. So why wouldn't they pick high twice? It could be fun and on a side note I like screwing the other teams.
Note: That smile on my face is my anticipation of Les Snead's next audacious move.
