    Can see it both ways. Rams, moving to California, need a QB for both on and off the field reasons. Titans, not wanting a QB, leveraged their #1 overall pick to get a number of quality picks (including a #1 next year). And... the player at #15 might not be that different than at #1.

    While the Titans won that trade, I also see why the Rams felt it was a chance they had to take. Wentz will be under a huge amount of pressure though...

    If Goff or Wentz become top 10 qbs it's worth it. If you look back at the rams redskins trade the rams got some decent players but nothing special. The Titans just passed on a shut down corner (playing in a division with Hopkins and Robinson). We will see in 3 yrs who really won this trade.

    Titans new GM doing big things but the Rams screwed up here. No one in this draft is worth that much right?

    why couldn't we do something like this instead of drafting Clowney?

    But that's the main problem... there is no consensus #1 QB that makes this sort of move probable to succeed. Even a Winston-Marriota type prospect would be more palatable to make a trade of this magnitude... let alone Luck or Manning.

    Teams can re-make and re-build themselves in 3 years regardless of draft position or cap space. At the same time, a lack of draft picks can basically put a franchise into purgatory for a decade.

    Not only would Goff or Wentz need to be a runaway star... but they're going to have to do it while the franchise basically has zero margin for error for 3rd-5th round picks for the next 2 years, or there will be a limited core for him to succeed with.

    Takes a desperate franchise to trade with... really not sure the Rams still make this sort of short-sighted/high-risk move if they're not re-locating.

    In a year where there's not a consensus #1 overall pick, the Rams just gave up a king's ransom to pick at that spot. I don't get it aside from creating a buzz over something fake and contrived...which is pretty much par for the course for Los Angeles. The Titans have reason to be excited.

    Nick said it best above. Rams paid a fortune and the relative future of their franchise in draft picks for what...a 10% chance one of those guys ends up as an elite QB?

    Undoubtedly a terrible trade.

    Rams should've kept that #15 pick and hoped that Paxton Lynch fell to them.

    I think he's going to be the ONE out of this draft class.
