Just a few years after being on the receiving end of a ton of picks swapped for the chance to draft RG3 – which has worked out well – the LA Rams just threw a treasure chest of picks at the Titans and jumped from the 15th pick to the first.
But they didn’t do it on their own. According to Bleeding Green Nation:
Part of the reason why the Rams were able to make this deal is because they owned Philadelphia’s second round pick this year from the Sam Bradford trade. I wonder if the Eagles actually tried to trade up but got outbid by the team that they gave their pick to last year. If so, ouch.
Additionally, the Titans just set a price on what the number one pick costs. The Browns are gonna want basically the same deal for number two. Feel like the Eagles probably won’t be moving up.
