Re: What is RG3 worth to us?

The Portis-Bailey trade was horrible for us, I said it when it happened.. You just don't trade a True Shutdown Corner for a RB

He will be there but if you can't trade down I say draft him of course he's plan C but out of all the guys we are linked to skill position wise: Blackmon, Claiborne, RGIII, Richardson. He's the only one I see being there in every scenario.

The 2nd rounder attached to it made it worse but what does that have to do with anything??

I don't think Shanny can survive if he did such a thing, and looking at his drafting history, I don't expect him to draft a RB at that spot. I think he would go QB/CB/OL/WR before he went with RB, regardless of how good that RB rated.

Re: What is RG3 worth to us?

NC, what if we drafted Trent Richardson in the first round, then used our 2nd rounder on Nick Foles and somehow acquired an additional 2nd rounder and drafted Mohamed Sanu or Dwight Jones. Would you still be upset???

I would never make it to the 2nd round because I would have already slit my wrists once he drafted Richardson.


RBs are a dime a dozen in the NFL these days. I really don't think a RB is warranted in the top 10 these days since many squads like the two back running systems. I would rather them go OL over RB at the #6. It would be different if I didn't think Helu and Royster could produce.

God it's moves like this that made me hate Gibbs 2.0
Doing it before draft day did make it questionable, otherwise I always liked that trade. Of course, we know now that JC is not on par w/A. Rodgers & maybe not even Alex Smith (though until this year his career was not much different than Smith's).

That said, since they thought JC was the qb of the future, giving up a 3rd & 4th wasn't that high a price. It was actually the most forward thinking moves of Gibbs 2. In other trades we gave up too much for questionable return. When drafting a qb, it was worth making the move he did. If JC was still our QB & we were winning like Alex Smith is now, we'd call that trade a great move.

I know but I see the draft going like this right now:

Colts- Luck
Rams- Blackmon
Vikings- Kalil
Browns- RGIII
Bucs- Claiborne
Redskins- Richardson?, Martin?, (doubt it), Kirkpatrick?, (not likely)

From a playmaking standpoint he makes sense from a need standpoint not so much.

True but he is the best RB prospect since AP, and while he is NOT my first choice I wouldn't be too pissed if we got him.

Understood, I'm just pointing out that it should be fairly obvious that the skins & other teams will likely covet the Rams pick if interest in RGIII is as high as expected. I only see a Cleveland/Miami trade going down if the Rams keep their pick.

I don't think the Rams are going to receive a real serious offer for the no. 2 pick that comes from any organization besides the Redskins. For every pick that Griffin slides, I think the realistic offers for his services will get hotter and hotter.

Right now, I think its safe to say he's coming off the board at 3rd or 4th. That could change, and it's impossible to say who will pull the trigger to make the pick, but when was the last time someone traded for a top two pick? 2001? That was 11 years ago.

Eli Manning was traded in 2004, but that's only a relevant comparison if the Rams are ready to pull the trigger on Griffin to really reap the benefits of a trade. And that's the scenario that would throw everything I believe off: the Rams taking Robert Griffin and then either shopping him or Bradford. But if the Rams aren't going to flirt with the idea of picking Griffin, then they'll never get close to a deal for the second pick.

Playmaking is the need, right.

Richardson would bring it in an unconventional form, but I would apply 'beggars can't be choosers' here.

1) 11 years ago & under a different cba, the new rookie scale is much more cap friendly for teams to get top 10 picks

2) I'm looking at it the other way around, the Rams hold the clear shot at getting RGIII regardless of whether they want him. If you are the Browns, Redskins, Fins, etc. & you want him, you need to trade up to get him. If in fact the redskins make an offer to the rams or any other teams, that starts the bidding once word gets out to other teams. The skins will have reason to make an offer if they believe Miami or other teams are trying to trade to #4 & vice versa.

I don't think the Rams will have to even flirt w/the idea of taking RGIII, they just have to flirt w/the idea that they will trade the pick to a team that will.

Re: What is RG3 worth to us?

Yet another NFL Mock....

Mock Drafts 2012: Richardson could slip to Bengals at No. 17

Browns move up to #2 to take RGIII
Skins take Dre Kirkpatrick
