NFL Mock Draft 2012: Rams Could Trade Pick At Three Different Points

It's widely agreed upon that the St. Louis Rams will end up dealing the number two overall pick to whichever team decides to pay the highest price for Baylor Bears QB Robert Griffin III, but less discussed has been when the Rams might decide to pull the trigger on a trade. Well, Sports Illustrated's Peter King shed some light on that in his Monday Morning Quarterback column, outlining three periods in which he believes the Rams might deal the pick.

The first period, though King calls this one "the most unlikely," is before free agency opens on March 13, as King reasons that a team may try and blow the Rams away after Griffin's combine performance but before he can drive the price up even further at his Pro Day. The second major period when the Rams may look to deal the pick would be at the NFL's league meetings that take place from March 24-28, which would come after Griffin's Pro Day and will feature all of the league's decision makers in one spot. The third would be in the days or hours leading up to the draft on April 26, which is traditionally when deals of this nature are pulled off.
