    @JayGlazer: Major scoopage: Redskins have agreed to a trade w Rams for #2 pick of draft. Rams and Skins swap first rounders this yr w Rams also getting 2 future #1s and additional picks.

    @AdamSchefter: Washington Redskins traded three first-round draft picks and a second-round pick to St. Louis for second overall pick in a trade first reported by @JayGlazer. Redskins-Rams trade cannot be processed until Tuesday but Dan Snyder and Stan Kroenke signed off on agreement: three 1s and a 2 for No. 2.

    Welcome to Washington RG3.

    That is a crazy amount for 1 pick. Rams were all smiles after RG3's combine.

    Just make sure he's not a pot-smoking schizophrenic with an idiot rap producer for an agent.

    Woooooow! Rams got luck having #2 this year! JFC! Where do the Rams pick now? Blackmon would be PERFECT for that team. Wondering if they try to trade one or two of those picks to get back up there for him?

    Absolutely insane! The Rams just pillaged the Redskins. Now St. Louis can draft Blackmon, and they get an additional 2nd rounder this year. Not to mention the other 1st round picks they get from Washington lol. RG3 better pan out or St. Louis is gonna pile up some serious talent.

    Damn. Seems like they gave up too much. But they obv need a QB. Idk if I would've given up THAT much though for someone that has yet to take a snap in the NFL.

    Not so sure if Blackmon will last to 6th. Vikes, Bucs and Browns in front. Do they all pass on him?

    Browns could take him, but there's a good chance Blackmon will still be there at 6.

    I imagine both Kalil and Richardson will be gone. Kalil is the top OL prospect and those always go early. Bucs and Browns might be looking for a RB so Richardson will be off the board. I wonder if Claiborne comes off that early.

    I think the Browns are the only team that would take Blackmon. Since RG3 will be gone, maybe they gamble on Tannehill, draft an O-lineman, or trade back.

    21st Century Hershel walker trade? The redskins are going to be terrible next year so the rams will get another high draft pick. Mike owes a lot to john elway.

    Wow, just when I was getting used to visualizing RG3 in a Browns uniform... Granted, that was probably a bit premature, but I liked the idea since that franchise(s) has been pitiful for so long.

    Oh well, I hope RG3 can survive the dysfunctional family that is the Redskins.
