Wow, steep price to pay...

 

 

Tennessee will send the top selection along with its fourth- (No. 113) and sixth-round (No. 177) picks this year to the Rams in exchange for Los Angeles' first-round pick (No. 15), two second-round selections (Nos. 43 and 45) and a third-round pick (No. 76) in 2016. The Titans also will get the Rams' first- and third-round picks in 2017.

Smart deal for Titans. Already got their young QB but have a lot of holes elsewhere. Stockpile as many picks as possible was a no brainer. They have 6 picks in the top 76 this year and will get 2 more 1sts next year. Can get a lot better very soon

Rams did draft 46 players in the past 5 drafts, although there were some underachievers selected.

Wentz is currently projected to be the #2 overall pick.   Titans were slated to take OL Tunsil with the #1 overall pick. 

 

And Wentz wouldn't be the first smaller school QB to be chosen #1 overall.

A pretty fair QB named Terry Bradshaw (Louisiana Tech) was selected 1st overall by the Steelers in 1970.  

 

Wentz has the strength (6-5, 230), the arm, and mobility.   Does he have the decision making skills to succeed in the NFL?

RG3 was viewed as more of a top prospect coming out of college than Wentz.  Supposedly Cleveland was entertaining trade offers or considering Wentz at 2 so if the Rams really wanted him they had to move to 1 but it seems like a lot to pay for a guy who isn't the consensus #1 pick assuming that's who they want.

Who knows maybe the Rams are eyeing Tunsil or Jalen Ramsey? Nothing would surprise me it's the NFL draft

 

No way. You don't trade that much and not grab a QB, especially when your starter is freakin Case Keenum

 

My issue with the deal wasn't the price but rather the fact that I don't think any of the QB's are great talents. This was a pretty weak QB class overall IMO.

Agreed.  There's no Andrew Luck, Cam Newton or Peyton Manning in this draft.  The cost to move up to 1 may be in line with what Washington and other teams paid but there's no guy on paper that's the franchise QB everyone wants.  That doesn't mean one or more of them won't pan out it's just that the rams could have stayed where they were, kept their picks and still gotten one of the top 5 or so QB's in the draft.

Carson Wentz is not Andrew Luck. I don't understand this move.

 

2 1st round picks

2 2nd round picks

1 3rd round pick

 

For

 

1 1st round pick(No. 1 overall)

1 4th round pick

1 6th round pick

 

boy, that's an expensive price to pay for someone who has all the earmarks of a star. sadly, that's not what this years draft looks like so it seems like quite a bit of overpay for someone who may or may not pan out.

 

i'm rooting for the rams to do well, so i hope this works out favorably.

Goff has an insane arm but he really struggled when pressured.  Doesn't seem to translate well to the NFL to me.  I don't know anything about the other dude.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

He was pressured every second of his college career. His pocket presence and awareness is ridiculous.

Which is why when the pressure really ramped up he started throwing picks left and right?

In fact, today's CBSSports mock draft has the Rams taking Goff 1st overall, better pocket presence and decision making than Wentz.

S.F. just traded up to the 4th pick, and CBSSports projects them taking Wentz.

I now wonder if the Rams want Goff all along, and were concerned that the 49ers move in and get high enough to take Goff themselves.
