Rams G.M. Billy Devaney hasn’t talked to any teams about trading down from the No. 1 overall pick yet, but he’s willing to listen.
“If we get a tremendous offer for the first pick . . .” Devaney said to the Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, failing to finish his thought while thoughts of future draft picks and players danced in his head. (We’d hold out for a tremendously tremendous offer.)
“If at the end of the day somebody makes an offer where we think, ‘My
gosh, we can really stockpile some players,’ if we think that’s the best
thing to do we’d be willing to do that also,” Devaney said.
Are you listening Washington?
With Seattle out of the Sam Bradford game, and Cleveland seemingly too far away at pick No. 7, the Redskins are the only team that could conceivably afford to move up. They aren’t afraid to consider a bold move.
We know: Devaney wouldn’t be doing his job if he didn’t say he was listening. But we suspect the Rams mean what they say. Talk about a possible Bradford deal seems likely to keep us busy until draft day.
Even if it winds up being more pre-draft hot air.
