2012 NFL Mock Draft: Rams Trade No. 2 Pick To Redskins In Latest National Football Post Mock

The Super Bowl hasn't even been played yet, but that hasn't stopped the runaway 2012 NFL Mock Draft train from speeding along. There has been a lot of speculation about what the St. Louis Rams plan to do with the No. 2 pick overall, and now some experts are turning away from Justin Blackmon and Matt Kalil and speculating that the Rams will trade the pick. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post has recently released his second mock draft, and in this iteration the Rams enter into a trade with the Washington Redskins. Here is what happened:

The No. 2 pick after the trade to the Washington Redskins:

2. -TRADE- Washington Redskins via St. Louis Rams: Baylor QB Robert Griffin III
RG3 is the kind of athletic quarterback that would be an ideal fit in the Washington offense. He can make plays outside the pocket, throw on the run and create second lives with his legs.

The No. 6 Pick

6. -TRADE- St. Louis Rams via Washington Redskins: LSU DT Michael Brockers
As bad as the Rams need to add talent on the outside at receiver, they are also in need of some talent inside at DT. Brockers has the talent to develop into an All-Pro caliber lineman for the Rams and they can always add a receiver with their additional picks from the Redskins later in the draft.
