It is impossible to predict just about anything that will happen in the first round of the NFL draft at the moment. With the 1st round only a week away we still have no idea who will end up number one as all top prospects have their downsides.
To add to all this uncertainty there are a large amount of teams that are ready to make moves to trade up and down.
The St. Louis Rams have been mentioned in trade talks ever since the draft order was finalised, and those rumours still persist/
It's wholly possible that they may have given their draft strategy away however, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Rams will be working out Johnny Manziel, Jake Matthews and Mike Evans at the same time, all of whom were teammates at the Texas A&M Aggies.
It would be a bold move to try and take Manziel and Evans in the same draft, a certain high risk/high reward move that could payoff spectacularly for Jeff Fisher and co.
Hypothetically, the Rams could trade down with a team looking to leap frog the Jaguars and Browns in order to draft Sammy Watkins or Khalil Mack (or Jadeveon Clowney depending on the Texans).
This would put the Rams in a situation where they could pick No. 6 overall, draft Manziel, Evans or Matthews and then draft one of the remaining three at No. 13 overall.
It would be a true master stroke if they managed to get all three however. This certainly makes May 8th even more interesting.
