The St. Louis Rams have decided to trade the No. 2 pick, league sources said Monday.

According to sources, the Rams already have had trade discussions with the Cleveland Browns (No. 4), Washington Redskins (No. 6) and Miami Dolphins (No. 8), each of whom is scheduled to pick in the top eight in April's draft.

The Rams, who already have quarterback and 2010 top pick Sam Bradford, also have discussed a potential trade with teams outside the top 10, according to a source, but it will be challenging for one to surrender enough compensation to vault to the second overall pick.

The Rams are seeking a deal similar to what the San Diego Chargers got for the rights to 2004 top overall pick Eli Manning, sources said Monday.

Manning was selected by the Chargers with the No. 1 overall pick in 2004 and traded to the New York Giants for two first-round picks, a third-round pick and a fifth-round choice.

With those picks, the Chargers ended up adding quarterback Philip Rivers, linebacker Shawne Merriman and kicker Nate Kaeding, all of whom have made multiple Pro Bowls.

The team that trades up to No. 2 on April 26 will likely select either quarterback Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.

St. Louis' second overall choice became the focal point after RG3's sterling effort at the combine in Indianapolis on Sunday cemented Griffin and Luck as the likely top two overall picks on April 26.

While neither Luck nor Griffin decided to throw at the Indianapolis event, Griffin was officially clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash, while Luck came in at 4.67. Luck also put his versatility on display Sunday. His broad jump (10 feet, 4 inches) was two inches short of quarterback Cam Newton 's best in 2011, and Luck's vertical jump (36 inches) was better than Newton's (35). Griffin was better than Luck in the vertical jump (39 inches) but fell short in the broad jump (10 feet).

The Indianapolis Colts, who hold the No. 1 pick, have said they will draft a successor to quarterback Peyton Manning with the top pick.

Among the teams Griffin interviewed with in Indianapolis were Miami, Washington, Minnesota and Kansas City. He said all went well, including his talk with Indianapolis executives trying to decide what to do with Manning and that top pick.

Luck's vertical jump (36 inches) was better than Newton's (35). Griffin was better than Luck in the vertical jump (39 inches) but fell short in the broad jump (10 feet).

It seems a bit early for the Rams to advertise what they want from another team in order to trade down from the #2 spot. The Chargers were extremely smart when taking Eli by holding out on a deal as long as possible in order to get more picks out of the Giants. There's still two months to go until the draft so if they've set out their demands now teams like the Browns, Dolphins, Chiefs etc are going to no doubt offer less and then meet somewhere in the middle.
I still think the Browns are the most likely to make a deal seeing as they have a second first round pick this year to throw into the deal.

The thing about the Chargers is that they actually had less leverage since Archie flat out told them that if they select Eli, he will sit out a year and reenter the draft. They drafted him anyway and flipped him to the Giants who picked #4 and who were Archie's preferred team.

Remember, you only have 15 minutes on the clock during draft day. By announcing that they intend to trade their pick 2 months early, the Rams are giving every team a chance to put together a package, then choose the best package, go back to the other biddgers for their highest and best, and then go back to the original team if someone bests them. THey're going to get a bonanza of picks/players because they're giving guys like Daniel Snyder and Stephen Ross ample time to salivate over game tape and make moves with this trade in mind.

True, Luck is an athlete for sure.Should be no surprise here. I just hope he doesn't follow in his dad's foot step's and become a huge asshole. Stay humble young man, stay humble!

makes sense for them. they need a RB, WRs, and Defense. they already have a QB and RG3 or luck will be available for a team in need. I could see them trading back a few times and piling up picks and landing blackmon and richardson getting 2 1st rounders out of it then focus on defense after that.
