The St. Louis Rams can spend today negotiating with potential 33rd overall picks, and they can also spend today entertaining offers from other teams for the first pick in the second round of the draft.
If they decide to trade the pick, two of the teams that are interested are the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bills and Browns have already contacted the Rams about acquiring the 33rd overall pick. Both teams want to draft a quarterback, either Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame or Colt McCoy of Texas.
Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, however, reports that the Bills are not inclined to trade up. The thinking in Buffalo may be that either Clausen or McCoy could fall to them at pick No. 41, or that there’s a quarterback they could take in the third round or later who can be developed into a starter.
Ultimately, even if the Bills aren’t inclined to trade up, the Rams are going to have some very good offers from teams that are — probably offers good enough that when the 33rd pick is announced, it won’t belong to the Rams.
