    Great post and well thought out. I would take either of theses guys ... but I just feel the Rams won't take one in Rd. 1 with as deep as this draft is a the WR position. Maybe they surprise us. I hope. Maybe they double dip at schools like they did with TA and SB last yr?? .... Boyd and Watkins? Hmmmm.

    To me, that appears to be a false equivalency when you compare Alex Smith to Manziel. The Whiners got that much in trade for a proven QB who had just lead them to the NFC West championship the previous year and was again proving his chops in the NFL (not college) until his concussion. A second round pick and a lower round pick in the next draft is also not close in value to #13. To think that we'd get anything like that for a QB who hadn't played a down in the NFL (remember we're talking about Sam being a success) is, IMO overly optimistic to say the least. Even if we were to get our money back, so to speak, with another #13 pick in another very deep draft, we would still have lost because we would have lost a years worth of development time for whichever player we actually do draft at #13 this year.

    Having said all that, insurance isn't free. That's an extremely high price to pay though and if the worst doesn't happen you've set us back in our quest to win the SB in the next three years. Many of us here agree that we should take out an insurance policy in case Sam doesn't pan out or gets injured and that's why we want to draft a QB lower in the draft to develop behind Sam and or trade down for an extra 1st rounder next year in case we need to draft a QB.

    When you say "Will it happen?", your answer of "No way!" is probably correct because of the fact that the Rams would also think the price is too high. In addition to the fact that Manziel probably won't be there at #13 like you've said.

    I sincerely believe that also. I'm betting two in the top 5 picks.

    I know the Rams won't risk a first round pick on a quarterback. So I don't fret over it. I accept Les and Jeff's judgement.

    True Story! Daniel Jeremiah (ex NFL scout and NFL Network Mock draft expert) smiled and looked deep into the TV EYE of the Evil NFL Network camera last Thursday and and exclaimed,

    "Want to know how to throw the draft into Kaos Folks? What if the Rams shocked the Entire NFL by picking Johnny Manziel with their #2 Pick!?!" Jeremiah mischievously grinned and glanced, eyes aglitter as he placed the Johnny Manziel Magnet next to the Rams #2 Pick!
