Many think it’s a given that the Rams will trade the second overall pick in the 2012 draft. G.M. Les Snead says it’s not.
But it’s close.
Snead told PFT Live on Monday that the team is “90 percent” sure to trade out of the No. 2 spot.
Teams have called, but the Rams aren’t talking about who has talked to them about talking turkey on a trade. Snead wouldn’t rule out the possibility of trading the pick in the division, although he acknowledged that a premium would be required to get the Rams to ship the second selection to a team like the Seahawks or Cardinals.
Snead also said that the Rams talk on a daily basis about the timing for pulling the trigger on the trade. We (or at least I) continue to think that it makes sense to wait for some of the big-name veterans to join new teams, which will put extra pressure on the teams that haven’t addressed their needs.
Other candidates to possibly make the move include the Browns, Redskins, and Dolphins.
