    St. Louis Rams trade 2nd over all pick to the Cleveland Browns for the 4th overall pick and and 22nd overall pick.

    Why St. Louis would do it ?

    Rams still get to draft the player they want in Matt Kalil with the 4th overall pick, plus add more help with the 22nd pick ( SS Mark Barron, OLB Zach Brown, CB Janoris Jenkins ? ). I'm not targeting a WR to them with this pick because I expect a more conservative approach on offense from Jeff Fisher and possibly Hue Jackson ( if hired ).

    Why Cleveland would do it ?

    The player they're going to get with the 22nd pick is not that significantly better than the player they're going to get in the 2nd round ( 37th overall ). However, RGIII is a blue chip, potentially franchise QB who will instantly increase season tickets sales 1 hour after the pick is made and that's well worth the 22nd pick of the draft.

    The advantage for the Browns is that their extra #1 pick is this year while the Dolphins and Redskins extra 1 pick would be next season and who knows where that might end up or how the draft would finally look.

    You have 3 potentially 1st round picks in Mercilus, Perry and Konz.

    I'm late to the party but the way Konz' stock has been going up lately, he'll end up in the later part of the 1st round.

    I don't see it happening. The Browns have twice as many holes as we do. I think RG3 is there at 4 most likely, unless the Dolphins or Skins move up. I'd love for RG3 to be a Brown, but if he's off the board you can still end up with a haul that looks like Blackmon, Chris Polk or whoever they feel is the #2 RB, and Foles early round 2. Swap Blackmon with Richardson and Polk with Floyd/Wright if Blackmon's off the board. That looks pretty fantastic to me.

    I think it's very realisic. Skins will do everything possible to move up for either Luck or RG3. You can't win in this league without a QB, both Holmgren and Shanny know this. They found out this year that McCoy and Grossman are not it.

    This move would be done in order to block either of those 2 teams from moving up to get him. Both teams ( Dolphins and Redskins ) have deep pocket owners desperately looking to make a splash and reinvigorate their respective fan base. There are arguments to be made against both of them too such as Shannan is in control of personnel and not little Danny, and due to a history of bad trades involving draft picks, the Dolphins might be a little gunshy about pulling the trigger with future picks, but in the end, it's still RGIII, it's still a bluechip QB, and the icing of the cake is the immediate possitive fan reaction that all 3 franchises need.

    I'd rather they get Matt Flynn than give up draft picks to move up.

    That could be done too, and to some extent it actually makes alot of sense. Both QBs need to grow, but Flynn is further along the process than RGIII is. The development process should be shorter with him.

    However, once again, the " wow " factor plays a major role here. RGIII would sell over 1,000 NEW season tickets within the first few hours of his selection. By the time training camp rolls around, that figure could upwards of 10,000+.
    That's some serious revenues, just on the tickets alone, right there..

    Let me put it to you this way: RGIII would be their LeBron James all over again.

    only those that ignore Konz's medical history have his stock going up
