EARTH CITY, Mo. — We’ve finally arrived at draft day and the next few hours will provide our final chances at speculating on what could happen instead of evaluating what has happened.
With that in mind, let’s make the most of that time and go through five scenarios that could play out for the St. Louis Rams with the No. 2 pick when they come on the clock tonight.
It’s been awfully difficult to sift through the smoke in this pre-draft process but these are the five things I believe the Rams will have in consideration for the second pick, put in order of how I think the team will prioritize them.
1. Hope Houston passes on South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney and trade him for a package of premium picks
Let’s be realistic about this: general manager Les Snead and coach Jeff Fisher love to make big, bold trades that allow them to stockpile picks. Having Clowney on the board is the preferred scenario because he’s the one guy that figures to draw the most in return.
