Rams trade No. 2 overall pick to Redskins for four picks

By Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch –

ST. LOUIS — While the Washington Redskins will get what they hope is their quarterback of the future in trading up with the Rams to the No. 2 spot in the draft, the Rams will get a mother lode of draft picks that could get the franchise back on his feet.

The Rams confirmed Friday night that they have agreed to trade their No. 2 pick in the upcoming draft to Washington.

In exchange, the Rams get Washington’s first-round pick this year (No. 6 overall), Washington’s second-round pick this year plus Washington’s first-round picks in 2013 and 2014.

Although both teams have agreed on the trade, it can’t be made official until 3 p.m. Tuesday, when the free agency and trading period begins.

The Rams confirmed the trade Friday night but declined further comment.

According to league sources, the trade actually was agreed to Thursday night, but both sides unsuccessfully tried to keep it quiet until Monday.

Cleveland, with the No. 4 pick, competed with Washington right until the end for the No. 2 pick.

But as expected, the Redskins proved to be more aggressive in their pursuit — and ended up with the better offer.

With Stanford QB Andrew Luck expected to go No. 1 to Indianapolis, Washington will use the pick for Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Washington originally wasn’t willing to give up the second-round pick this year but ultimately relented.
