Trading two first-round picks for Odell Beckham Jr. too much for Rams


As much as the Los Angeles Rams want to explore all options, surrendering two future first-round picks for Odell Beckham Jr. is too much.

Just when it seems like the Los Angeles Rams are slowing down in the offseason with big moves, the team goes out and makes another big splash, with the latest coming earlier this week when it was announced that Ndamukong Suh was coming on board with a one-year, $14 million deal. The thought alone of Suh joining a defensive line that already consisted of Aaron Donald took Super Bowl expectations for the Rams to a whole new level, but the news didn’t stop there when the rumors started to swirl over the possibility of Odell Beckham Jr. coming on board.

Similar to the situation with Suh, the thought of Los Angeles landing a star receiver like Beckham seemed like an absolute long shot at first, that is until the team became linked to potential trade talks. In fact, one report claimed the Rams were even considering the possibility of giving up the No. 23 pick to the Giants as part of a potential deal, although nothing is set in stone.

Turns out, the No. 23 pick may not even be enough to land Beckham based off a new report from Adam Schefter, in which he claims New York will be looking for not one, but TWO first-round picks from teams expressing interest in the wideout. So if this does happen to be the case, this seems like a no brainer for the Rams when it comes to eliminating this possibility since two first-round picks seems like a little much for a team that is already in great shape.

Without question, Beckham would provide an immediate boost to the receiving corps of Los Angeles while giving Jared Goff another dangerous weapon to work with. But also, keep in mind the Rams are already in great shape in the receiver department thanks to Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp.

Not to mention, Sean McVay seems to have high expectations for Josh Reynolds taking on a larger role in 2018 now that Sammy Watkins is out of the picture after he decided to sign with the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency. So as much as the Rams love the possibility of Beckham helping this team become stronger Super Bowl contenders, their chances can still be high without having to give up two first rounders.
