Rams Deal Second Pick to Redskins

Cross the Washington Redskins off the list of teams interested in Peyton Manning. They turned their sights on the 2012 NFL Draft and on Friday worked out a mega-deal with St. Louis to get the second pick in the first round.

The move up in the first round did not come cheap. The Redskins held the sixth selection, but now have moved up to the second. The Rams are now in the sixth slot. They also picked up a second-round choice in 2012, and first-round selections in 2013 and 2014.

The Redskins have not said publicly, but they apparently have set their sights on Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

    The new rising power in the NFL is not the Skins but the RAMS after this mega deal! From a draft points point of view, this is even more than the Saints paid when they surrendered their entire draft back in ’99 to take Ricky Williams. I feel the pain already for RG3 and the expectations he’ll have to deal with and attempt to live up to in order to begin to justify this deal.

    The NFL off, err CRAZY, season is well underway indeed. Wow!

    RGIII is more stable than Ricky was. This is a typical Snyder deal, just imagine what it would have cost the Chiefs to move from the 11th spot. Would not have been a sane move. We didn’t lose out by not getting RGIII, it was never in the cards to begin with. That elusive so called franchise QB will have to come another way for our Chiefs.

    When was the last draft where the first two picks were already decided prior to draft day, and both went to a QB?

    Well this ends my dream of some how performing a miracle trade and getting RG3. I guess we are relagated to Cassel for another season.

    Pfttt. That was stupid. Al Davis didn’t die. He was traded to Washington. As if they needed help.
