This next spring the Rams will once again have two first round picks due to the infamous RGIII trade with the Redskins. With the Rams being 4-6 and the Redskins being 3-6, the Rams look to be in a position to get two top players. Here is where their picks currently stand.

The Rams would be picking at number eight and number 11 as of right now, but Washington could get hot and the Rams aren’t going to back down just to get a high draft pick.

If the order were to stay as it is right now it would not surprise me if the Rams once again traded down with a team that doesn’t necessarily have a quarterback in place for next season and want to get a guy like Mariota or Tahj Boyd.

As of right now Bleacher Report writer Chris Roling has the Rams taking OT  Taylor Lewan and WR Sammy Watkins. Draftek has the Rams taking WR Mike Evans and OLB  CJ Mosley with alternate picks being WR Marquise Lee, CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, and  S Ha Ha  Clinton-Dix.
