We’ve reached pick No. 2. This selection belongs to the St. Louis Rams. General manager Les Snead has previously shown he’s open to trading first-round draft picks. That was the case when they traded the No. 2 pick to the Washington Redskins for three first-round picks and a second-rounder. Snead hasn’t hidden his desire to trade down in this season’s draft.

What if Snead doesn’t trade down? The Rams were the long sub-.500 team in an NFC West division that featured three teams with 10-plus wins, two conference championship representatives and the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Some of the Rams’ primary draft needs include wide receiver, offensive lineman and safety. What makes this an interesting scenario is that with pick No. 13, the Rams could decide to look past those needs to focus on drafting the best player available.

It’s time to examine who the Rams will select if they remain at No. 2.
