The Los Angeles Rams are trading guys and picks like hotcakes. And around the 2018 combine, they have been the talk of the NFL. Hell of a way to lead into free agency...

This week Joe (@3k_) and I (@MightyOrMisone) discuss the 2018 NFL scouting combine, the upcoming free agency decisions for the Los Angeles Rams, and trades, trades, trades!

So many big stories come from the combine each year. The good news for Rams fans is one position group of severe need looked amazing (as expected). Edge rushers shined bright like a diamond (sorry had to get my Rihanna on there). This is excellent news for the Rams who look to be in position to trade down a few picks if they would like but can also move up and not sell the farm. You never know with Rams General Manager Les Snead...

Meanwhile, the Rams have been trading like crazy. Over the last week they moved DE Robert Quinn to the Miami Dolphins and ILB Alec Ogletree to the New York Giants. They also brought in CB Marcus Peters from the Kansas City Chiefs and CB Aqib Talib from the Denver Broncos reuniting him with Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips and it feeeeeeeeeeeeels so gooooooooooooooooood.

Also, no tag for WR Sammy Watkins! The Rams decided to tag S Lamarcus Joyner instead. However, there was not better discussion than hearing Joe explain why he thinks it’s ok to hand out a one-year, $15m deal to Watkins but not RB Todd Gurley.
