    Source -- Washington Redskins acquire No. 2 overall pick from St. Louis Rams - ESPN

    To move from 6th to 2nd this is a haul and then some.

    If the Rams draft wisely they can build a dynasty from this trade.

    Crazy deal. Just shows Washington is in a fantasy world. Three no 1's and a number 2 for a QB who may be a wash? Just look at the QB's who have washed out over the years as top 5 picks. If this was the NBA the commish would cancel it.

    Giving up 3 straight no. 1's will cripple Washington for years, not that they are any good now. As for St Louis, they can use these picks (and they should be high) to trade down for extra picks like New England does every year or draft some studs. Problem is cap space with no. 1's so I would expect St Louis to trade some of the picks, maybe to Indy for DE Freeney who is being shopped around now. I know Indy would love draft picks for him.

    And here I thought it was Shanahan and not Snyder running the show.

    Yeah, they gave up a ton to get a guy who might not pan out. Even if he does there will be a learning curve and the 2013 and 2014 first round picks could very easily be top ten to top fifteen overall picks that they just gave away. I doubt anybody is giving up a first rounder for Freeney but I agree that they do have a great opportunity to draft down and really stockpile picks. If I'm them I identify an offensive lineman that can be had in the middle first round and just continue to trade that 6th pick down until it's time to nab him. At least that's what the Belichick fan inside me would do. They'd have picks galore.

    They really don't need to worry about cap space with all those picks tho, with the new slotted salary scale for draft picks the Rams can use those picks without fear of killing their cap.

    Rams fans have a reason to be big time optimistic about the next ten years. It must be like Christmas morning to them today.

    Dan Snyder is the living embodiment on why fans shouldn't own sports teams.
