2012 NFL Draft Rumors: Rams Trade No. 2 Pick To Redskins, According To Report

There will be no suspense surrounding the No. 2 pick on draft day, as multiple reports are now saying that the St. Louis Rams have agreed to deal their first round pick to the Washington Redskins in exchange for a bounty of draft choices. The news of the trade, which will be finalized on Tuesday, was first reported by Fox's Jay Glazer and was subsequently confirmed and clarified by ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reported that the Rams will receive three first round picks and a second round pick from Washington.

The three first round picks will presumably come in the upcoming three drafts, with the second rounder also coming in this year's draft. The news broke on Friday night without any reports of any proposed trades, so it's yet unknown if the Rams passed on a bigger bounty from a team picking below the Redskins in the draft or if they passed on the Cleveland Browns' two first round picks in 2012.

The Redskins are widely expected to draft Baylor Bears quarterback Robert Griffin III with the pick. The Rams have Sam Bradford and were not going to move on from him after only two years.
