The Los Angeles Rams have acquired the number one overall pick from the Tennessee Titans and are currently on the clock. However, getting the number one overall pick wasn’t easy. According to Tim Kelly from eagledelphia, the Rams had to outbid the Philadelphia Eagles for the number one pick.
Here’s what Kelly had to say,
"“According to a source close to the team, the Eagles believed they had the parameters of a draft-night trade in place with the San Diego Chargers at No. 3, which would have allowed them to select whichever quarterback the Cleveland Browns didn’t take with the No. 2 pick.That trade now appears to be dead, given that the Eagles were presumably moving up for the chance to draft one of the first two quarterbacks, who appear likely to be off the board in the first two picks now.”No one saw this coming. Moving from 15 to 1 is basically impossible unless you mortgage the future, which they basically did,” the source said of the Rams trade.The source did note that the Eagles made an attempt to land the No. 1 pick that the Rams eventually traded for. The source didn’t believe that the Eagles were particularity close to landing the pick and it’s unclear how many teams were involved in the talks.”"
While Kelly isn’t necessarily a “big” beat writer is Philadelphia he does have his sources in the Eagles organization. It is unknown what the Eagles were offering, but it does sound like there was some competition for the number one overall pick. Kelly notes that his source said that the Eagles weren’t necessarily close in landing the pick, however, there was interest. The Eagles currently have Sam Bradford on their roster who they traded for with the Rams last season.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network confirmed the report that the Eagles were involved as well saying:
The Rams are in a position in which this trade could make or break the Jeff Fisher and Les Snead era. They made a bold move and now it’s only a matter of time before we find out who it was for and if the trade in the long-haul, was worth it.
