I think it was a great trade. Schwartz clearly needs help everywhere, and the talent that Suh provides outweighs McCoy's and then seriously drops with Williams and Cody compared to Suh. There is decent depth in the OL in the 2nd and 3rd, same with WR. Overall, for just a 4th rounder, well worth the trade up.
Also, great trade for Rams. They've invested two high picks on the DL (Carriker and Long), high pick on MLB (Laurenitis), and money invested in FS (Owtogue). What they need the most is to improve the OL so Jackson can produce, and Okung would be too high at #1, but perfect for #2.
