Two teams in the top five of April’s NFL Draft are reportedly interested in getting out of their spots – as the Rams (#2) and Vikings (#3) are talking with teams about deals that will move them out of the top positions.
Vikings GM Rick Spielman said Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine that his team is open to moving out of the four spot.
“We’re definitely open to moving,” Spielman said. “We have a lot of confidence in Christian Ponder and what he’s going to bring to our franchise. But we’re also going to do our due diligence on Andew Luck and RGIII (Robert Griffin) to make sure if we’re in a scenario and they are sitting there at three, what are we going to do?
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that a number of teams are chatting with the Rams about the possibility of trading for the second overall pick, which could land that team Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.
The Rams are willing to deal the pick for the right package, according to one source, and the chances are that St. Louis will wind up trading down.
There’s a number of teams that want a QB, including the Browns, Redskins, Dolphins and Seattle, and it wouldn’t be a shock if any number of those teams were chatting with the Rams about moving up.
