    The ownership of the Rams is in flux, and they have missed repeatedly on their 1st round picks in the recent past, and they are looking at a 40 to 50 million dollar contract to a guy with a shoulder that has been hurt more than once...

    Most teams today will trade the pick if offered a decent contract just to save the bonus money going out. And the Rams have a history of being cheap.

    Having drafted for the Browns , their roster stinks . They traded away three of their past #1 picks ( Wimbley , Quinn , Edwards ) . They need to keep as many picks as possible and hope they hit on more than half .

    If I'm the Rams, it's going to have to be a really attractive package for me to trade out of the top spot. A possible franchise QB is sitting there for you and you can't pass that up. Draft him and beef up your OL. You already drafted Jason Smith #2 overall last year. Pick up a RG like Jon Asamoah in the 2nd... or get a guy in the 3rd/4th. No team drafting in the #1 isn't going to have a ton of holes but it all starts with the QB. They've got a decent to good running game already. Beef up the OL and help out that #1 QB. Rams ranked 11th in YPC last year. The running game is a young QB's best friend.
