2012 NFL Draft: Trade Talks Are Happening Now For Rams' Second Pick

New, comments

Hopefully, the St. Louis Rams provided Les Snead, their new GM, with an unlimited cell phone plan. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Rams are already hearing from teams interested in trading up for their second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Schefter does not say which teams have made the preliminary inquiries, but you can assume it includes the quarterback needy teams that have already been mentioned as interested parties, including Cleveland, Washington and Miami.

The Rams are willing to deal the pick for the right price. Snead and the new cabal at Rams Park could fetch a very nice package of picks in exchange for the right to draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. They should be able to choose among the best offers.

Of all the interested teams, the Cleveland Browns might be the most attractive trading partner with two first-round picks in this year's draft. Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said in his press conference today that the team has flexibility with two first-round picks and acknowledged that they are willing to trade if they feel there is a match.

Shefter's source for the report says that the Rams will most likely end up trading down in the draft.
