The Rams surprised some people by drafting running back Todd Gurley with the 10th overall pick on Thursday night and there were a wide variety of responses to the move.

There were those who liked the upside, those who worried that Gurley’s knee might limit his effectiveness as a rookie and those that thought the Rams should have picked a wide receiver. And then there was Rams running back Zac Stacy, who took to Twitter with a heavy dose of self-awareness of what Gurley’s arrival means for him.

“Yikes,” Stacy wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.

That reportedly wasn’t Stacy’s only response. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Stacy has requested a trade now that he’s part of a depth chart that also includes Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. Schefter adds that the team is open to moving him, which could happen for a third day pick if a team thinks Stacy offers more than a member of this year’s draft class.
