    That does not seem to make any sense for the Rams.

    Why not? The Rams could still take Clausen with the 3rd and pick up a couple of extra pieces with a 3rd rounder and Johnson.

    The difference in price between #1 and #3 is a LOT of money. Neither Detroit nor Tampa are a risk to take a QB (both have 1st round pick QBs), so the Rams would get their guy for a helluva lot cheaper

    I suppose if the Rams are definitely going for a QB, then this would work for them. I think its hard to pass on Suh though.

    Why would the Bucs want to pay someone #1 money?

    Teams dont want the #1 pick like they did 10 years ago. Not gonna happen.

    The Rams need a QB. Be it FA, trade or the draft. As much as Suh would be a major asset to any teams defense, the Rams need alot more than just Dline help. They need skill players. Josh Freeman with Steven Jackson is a pretty decent offense. You let Freeman run the offense for a year and then let Clausen learn behind him and then let them battle it out the next year.

    I just don't see the Rams passing on Suh. Spags is a d-first guy, and the team has such incredible needs on that side of the ball that he would be sick to his stomach over the possibility of passing on him.

    I'll say this, the Lions sure as hell won't pass on him.

    It's Josh Johnson, not Josh Freeman.

    What's interesting to me is that if the Rams intend to trade back for a QB, why are they asking Josh Johnson be involved in the deal? I understand why they might be hesitant to take another first round DL, but you'd think if they intend to draft a QB, Johnson would be superfluous at best.

    If they did this deal, I'd expect them to try and move back again and nab someone else they might be targeting like Berry or Dez Bryant

    Maybe want an athlete to run Wildcat? They seem to just want out of the #1 spt, which isn't all that dumb, if you ask me.

    If they want Suh bad enough then they have to take him at #1. Cuz Detroit isn't gonna pass on him.

    I thought there was going to be a rookie salary cap in place before the draft this year?

    I agree with that. But taking Suh @ #1 is ALOT less costly than trading up from 3 to 1 and taking Suh @ #1.

    There's more than one scout who thinks Gerald McCoy is a better prospect than Suh, who is more versatile while the OKlahoma player is right there with Suh as a 3-Tech DT.
