This was a trade done long before draft day, and the Rams made a splash by trading out of the Andrew Luck/Robert Griffin III sweepstakes.
Knowing they had a valuable pick on their hands and plenty of teams desperate to have it, St. Louis did the right thing by trading down to the No. 6 spot held by the Redskins and received a nice package of picks in the process.
In return for their second overall pick, the Rams received the No. 6 pick, as well as the 2012 second-round pick and two first-round picks (in 2013 and 2014) from the Redskins.
Though the Rams ended up trading down again with the sixth pick, it was a lucrative decision for them to deal their way out of the No. 2 spot and still make a solid draft selection in the first round (DT Michael Brockers).
While Washington drafted what many are speculating to be their quarterback of the future in RGIII, the Rams will have the next few drafts to rebuild their team with several draft picks.
