The St. Louis Rams are seeing what it soon to be a long, media-filled offseason as they hold the top selection.

As reports have shown, the Rams have reportedly shown interest in Ndamukong Suh as the top overall selection.

However, it is for certain that St. Louis does not know what to do with the top selection, and they may even consider trading the pick.

With these rumors surrounding the front office and the team, one player has decided to speak out.

All-Pro running back Steven Jackson says the Rams should trade the top selection if they are not sold on one player.

"If we don't feel someone is hands-down the No. 1 pick, I think we should trade down, try to get an extra second-rounder, an extra second- or third-round pick, 'cause we have so many things that we can use as an organization," Jackson said.

Finishing with a record of 1-15, the Rams could obviously use the extra draft picks to fill holes on this roster.

Yet, Jackson came out and said he is a big fan of Ndamukong Suh.

"But I'm definitely a fan of Ndamukong Suh. I hear he's a great person, his family is unbelievable, and he's definitely an impact player."

It appears as the Rams decide what to do with the top selection, this decision will also have to bring interest within the fans.

Most likely either Suh or Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford would be the favorites for the selection, as they both have been within the midwest area for quite some time.
