The Rams own the second overall pick in the NFL draft, and coach Jeff Fisher sees a lot more than two players they could be happy with.
“We’ve identified six to eight players that we think could potentially fit us at two,” Fisher said today at his pre-draft press conference.
If that’s the way the Rams feel, trading down a few spots would make a lot of sense. If they move down to No. 6, they could pick up extra picks and still guarantee that they’ll get one of the players they’ve identified as worth the second overall pick.
But while that trade might make sense, Fisher insisted that another much-discussed trade — the Rams moving quarterback Sam Bradford — is not in the cards.
“With respect to Sam, he’s our starter, as you guys know,” Fisher said. “No. We are not shopping Sam.”
Instead, the Rams are looking for players who can win alongside Bradford. And they think six to eight of them will be available at No. 2.
