We all have been consumed by the idea that Sam Bradford will be drafted by the St. Louis Rams. What if that doesn't happen? What if the Rams get smart and draft the most hyped DT to come out, maybe ever? I for one am anticipating that very scenario. There's a possibility the Rams could trade for say a Jason Campbell or maybe draft Colt McCoy if he is still there in the 2nd round. If Suh indeed is selected #1 overall by St. Louis, look for Detroit to do one of 3 things: draft the next best DT in Gerald McCoy, select OT Russell Okung, or trade the pick to a team like the Browns or Bills who would be salivating over Sam Bradford. Let's play out those scenarios and decide what we think Dominik and company will do. Here's my best guess if Rams pick Suh -
A- If Detroit drafts DT McCoy, we trade down for a team who wants Bradford and stock up on a boatload of picks.
B- If Detroit trades pick to a team wanting Bradford, we stand pat and draft DT McCoy
C- If Detroit drafts OT Russell Okung, then we have a choice to stand pat and draft McCoy or trade the pick to a team who wants Bradford and stock up on a boatload of picks. If we did the latter, the probability of McCoy being there isn't going to happen so we pray that Eric Berry is still there (assumming we trade to Browns or Bills).
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Whoever the Bucs sign third overall (assumming they stand pat) will sign a contract for more guaranteed money than any player in the history of our organization. Thank God for the talk of a rookie wage scale. It's almost like whoever picks that high is blessed to get what possibly could be a great player but also cursed as well. The problem with that is the player drafted could be the next Peyton Manning or the next JaMarcus Russell and no matter what, you gotta pay....ALOT
