After agreeing to a trade with the Tennessee Titans, the Los Angeles Rams will select first in the 2016 NFL Draft. There is no doubt the Rams will be taking a quarterback with the first pick, the question becomes Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. A team doesn't trade the house to move up in the draft to take an offensive lineman. The Titans traded the first overall pick, their fourth round pick (113th), and their sixth round pick (177th. The Rams gave up their first round pick (15th), two second round picks (43rd and 45th), third round pick (76th), and their first and third round selections in the 2017 draft. This is obviously a clear win for the Tennessee Titans, they will are going to get four of the top 76 players in the draft, and they are set up perfectly for next years draft. If they somehow fail to make the playoffs with the talent drafted in the next two years, everyone should be fired, and I mean everyone from the ball boy to the general manager. Every hole should be filled on the Titans team over the next two years, and it won't cost the big money that free agents demand year in and year out.
As for the newly minted Los Angeles Rams, they are taking a huge gamble on either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff. They pretty much mortgaged their future in order to get the quarterback of their choice, look how good that worked out for the Redskins with RGIII. Everything revolves around the quarterback in the National Football League, just look at the Patriots with Tom Brady, you could stick anyone in the Patriots offense and succeed. The majority of teams are always looking for the next great QB, and more often than not, most teams fail to find their quarterback for the next 15 years. They better make the right pick between Wentz or Goff because if they don't the decision to trade up to the first overall pick will haunt them for the next five years, at least. I don't think the move to LA had anything to do with the move, the Rams had no quarterback whether they played in St. Louis or LA. Hopefully the Rams will make the right decision when it comes to their quarterback of the present and future.
The NFL Draft starts on Thursday, April 28th at 8PM ET.
