Predicting a trade this early may be a tad ridiculous, but it seems very likely to occur. With teams such as Washington, Seattle, Kansas City and perhaps Cleveland vying for the services of Robert Griffin III, St. Louis currently sits in a commanding spot.
Jeff Fisher and his Rams can either sit in this spot and take USC's Matt Kalil or ship this pick away for multiple selections. Being that the Rams need help in nearly every position on the field, it would make sense to trade the pick in order to stock up on talent.
So who will be the team St. Louis trades with? Given their desperate need for a franchise quarterback, the Washington Redskins could very well emerge as the favorites. Add the useful or not-so-useful fact that Fisher and Mike Shanahan are pretty good friends, and we may have a winner here.
The trade would certainly entail the Redskins surrendering their sixth overall pick as well as a few more selections in either this draft or a future one. This would mean St. Louis would still have nice position at the No. 6 spot, along with the additional picks they could use to fill up their weak roster.
And we all know about Washington's horrific quarterback history, so Griffin would be nothing short of a savior for the struggling franchise. He has ridiculous accuracy on his deep throws, can make plays with his feet and was college football's best player in 2011.
Last season, Griffin passed for 37 touchdowns and 4,293 yards and has thrown just six picks. He also displayed his explosive run game, rushing for 699 yards and 10 touchdowns.
After seeing Carolina take a risk that paid off huge dividends with Cam Newton, perhaps the Redskins will have no problem taking a calculated chance of their own on a quarterback with multiple tools.
