The St. Louis Rams, who hold the number 2 overall pick in the first round of Thursday night’s 2014 NFL Draft, are no stranger to trading down.
In fact, the reason the Rams hold the second-overall pick in addition to the 13th-overall pick is because they dealt the second-overall pick in the 2012 Draft to the Washington Redskins. The Redskins, of course, used the pick on former Baylor Bears’ quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The Rams could be looking to do something similar this year.
The Rams (along with the Houston Texans, who hold the top overall pick) are reportedly looking to trade down.
Rams GM Les Snead has told @MichelleBeisner that he’s fielded a number of phone calls about trading the No. 2 pick.

One team that appears to be interested in doing business with the Rams is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs are reportedly attempting to trade up and acquire the number 2 overall pick in order to select former Texas A&M Aggies’ quarterback Johnny Manziel, who the Buccaneers’ owners are apparently pushing the team to select.
