Rams and Browns agree to trade.

Browns receive:

Rams' 1st rounder (#14 overall) + 4th rounder + 5th rounder

Rams receive:

Browns 1st rounder (#6 overall)

Rams select Marcell Dareus, DT, Alabama

For the Rams to trade up that high and not take Julio Jones is a massive failure.

Good move Rams. St Louis picked up Zack Miller and Steve Breaston during the FA period so this is a great pick for them.

Bradford had the worst receiving corp in the NFL last year. Breaston is at best a number 2 receiver. If you are going to trade that far up in the draft, then you need to address your biggest need, which is by far finding a number 1 receiver.

I would imagine Pro Bowl Tight End Zack Miller would help that receiving corp as well. ;)

But no matter, RnR is the Ram GM and has made the moves he thinks are right. This is the Huddle draft with Huddle FA moves, not the NFL draft.

Cowboys on the clock.

Interesting move for sure. Both WR and DT are deep but for both positions you could say there is distinction between the top 2 and the rest. I would say Dareus at #6 is great value...Julio would been a good pick but not the same value. Perhaps taking Paea at 14 would have been okay too.

Yeah the Rams WR corps looked bad last year but their DTs were equally horrible. I'm talking Nick Hayden bad.

For WR I get Mark Clayton back from injury. Missed most of last season but had over 300 yards in just a handful of games. Started to develop some really good chemistry with Bradford before he got hurt.

Traded for Steve Breaston.

Traded for Zach Miller, a massive upgrade from my horrible TE corps.

Danny Amendola who had limited experience but really started to emerge as an effective slot WR and looks like he could be the next Wes Welker.

So I've got a few guys thrown into the mix and the draft isn't over yet ;)

For DT I didn't manage to get any of the FAs I wanted, basically did nothing except lose my own FA DT Gary Gibson (though he sucked anyway).

And on top of all that I'm not really blown away by Julio Jones. The drops, lack of concentration and inconsistency bothers me. I know people were blown away by his combine but I'm not going to forget about all the negatives because of a fast 40 time. Even if I had stayed put at #14 it wasn't 100% that I'd take him, though he's definitely in the mix.

BPA I take Dareus 10 times out of 10 over JJ. He's 2nd only to PP7 as my highest rated prospect (with Green 3rd). For the Rams (who didn't have a huge need at CB) Dareus is the #1 guy on their board.
