The first round of the 2010 NFL Draft was filled with surprises. Tim Tebow to the Broncos, Tyson Alualu to the Jaguars, take your pick for the biggest twist. Those surprise picks have put the St. Louis Rams in an even better position with their first pick in the second round than many could have imagined with plenty of coveted first round talents still available. It's barely past Noon on the East Coast and already the Rams have been contacted about trading their 33rd overall pick.
Yesterday, the Browns made one last attempt to see if the Rams would trade the first overall pick in order for Cleveland to draft QB Sam Bradford. Today, they have their eyes on the Rams 33rd pick because of interest in Texas QB Colt McCoy and Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen.
I'm all for trading the pick if the offer is right. It will be interesting to see what kind of bounties team are willing to give the Rams for that pick. Could the Rams even unload a player like Alex Barron in a trade for that pick?
These probably won't be the only teams contacting the Rams about the 33rd pick. Stay tuned.
