It's almost Thanksgiving, and that means the St. Louis Rams are mostly jockeying for position in the NFL Draft. General manager Les Snead has two picks in the first round this year, thanks to a deal with Washington for the second pick last year.
If the draft were held today, the Rams would have the 7th and the 12th picks, the later being Washington's. For the complete draft order and strength of schedule numbers, check out Mocking the Draft.
Given the way things are heading, the Rams will probably be picking in those neighborhoods. It looks like Snead should have at least one top 10 pick by virtue of his team's efforts on the field. The Redskins are the team to watch. RGIII has his top receiver back in Pierre Garcon, and the team is playing very well right now.
Washington's remaining schedule looks like this:
vs. New York Giants
Two more wins seems like a lock, and three is very possible. Will the Redskins leave the Rams with a top 15 pick? Or will it be in the top 20? Either way, it's still a first -round pick.
