2014 NFL Draft: History says Falcons, Rams most likely to move in first round


If you’re looking for the most likely suspects to make a move in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, look no further than an interesting report from CBSSports.com, which states that based on history, the St. Louis Rams and Atlanta Falcons are at the top of the list.

Both the Falcons and Rams have been attached to assorted rumors about both trading up and down in this year’s first round, even though both of them currently hold top 10 picks.

I guess there’s good reason those two teams are mentioned with draft day trades as often as they have been.

The Falcons, who currently hold the number six pick, have been tied to trading up to take defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the number one overall pick, currently held by the Houston Texans.

The Rams, who sit at number two overall, have been talked about in trading down to stockpile picks to fill the myriad of holes they currently have, or possibly to even go after quarterback Johnny Manziel.

At the bottom of the list of first round moves – the Tennessee Titans and Arizona Cardinals.
