For Rams fans, it seems that we have had one of the first three picks in the annual NFL Draft for years and years now.
Some picks like Sam Bradford and Robert Quinn have worked out, whereas others have miserably amounted to nothing (Adam Carriker, Jason Smith).
Not to get ahead of myself, but it's hard not to be excited for next year's draft, no matter the outcome of the 2012 season.
The reason being the Rams will not only have their own first round pick, but a first round pick acquired in a trade from the Washington Redskins so they could grab Robert Griffin III. They not only gave the Rams a first and second round pick for 2012, but a first round draft choice for 2013 and even 2014 as well!
Why is this good for the St. Louis Rams this year? Because the Washington Redskins are in a tough division, and have struggled so far on the season.
They are currently 2-3, losing to the Rams in Week 2, and have some tough games still ahead of them this season. They go on to face the Vikings, Steelers, Ravens and of course each team from their NFC East division twice each in the weeks to come.
At 2-3 right now, it is highly possible the Redskins could finish with no more than 4 or 5 wins. Only seven teams last year finished with 5 or less wins.
Sure it's a stretch to be thinking so far ahead, but when you break down the Redskins remaining schedule, the 2013 NFL Draft is looking very promising for the Rams. Here's to an awful season in Washington!
