ESPN is reporting that several teams have had "preliminary discussions" with the St. Louis Rams about their coveted No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft.
The Rams finished the season tied for a league-worst 2-12 record, but fell behind the Indianapolis Colts in tie-breakers, giving the Colts the No. 1 overall pick and a shot at the presumptive top prospect, Stanford QB Andrew Luck. The Rams however, have been rumored to have a particular interest in certain other players lower in the draft.
With 25-year-old Sam Bradford manning the quarterback position, the Rams are in no hurry to draft the likes of Baylor's QB Robert Griffin III, but other teams eager to acquire the scrambling quarterback's services appear to have the Heisman Trophy winner in their sites. The Rams, meanwhile, will likely target a different, yet still offensive, position to upgrade, given the Rams scored a only 7 rushing touchdowns and a league-worst 9 passing touchdowns in 2011.
