Should the Rams Trade for Jenkins?

Well, let's throw it out there for discussion.

Should the Rams trade for Carolina Panthers DT Kris Jenkins?

I sounds like it will cost our first round draft pick, which may well have been a DT anyway. Jenkins is only 27, so you're essentially drafting an NFL Pro Bowler to lock down the front line for the next 3 years of his career, which would essentially be the last of his prime years.

I gotta say, with team geared toward winning now, might as well pull the trigger. A first round DT will help the line tons, but will still be far from his potential. If they could snag another second round pick - would that be worth Klopfenstein? - they'd add some talent and youth to a couple other key areas, DE or LB or WR...
