Sounds like it would work well for both teams. The Bucs have a surplus of QB's and J. Johnson has had some time to develop. That would leave the Rams in position to get Eric Berry which means Atogwe may be available to the Niners as a free agent.
I still think they take a QB with the 3rd pick. Probally Bradford.
Then it's a dumb ass trade! Just like the Browns/Jets dumb ass trade last year!
How is it dumb? If they want a QB all along, they move down 2 spots and still get their choice of QB, while picking up a 3rd rounder and a stop gap to bring along Clausen or Bradford. It's a great trade for both teams.
I'm not a stickler to the trade value chart. But to only come away with a 3rd round pick and a backup QB for the #1 pick just doesn't seem too bright. If they felt Johnson was their QB then by all means do the trade.
They should atleast get a player of worth if they are doing a trade like that. I understand the point that they pickup up a 3rd and still get their man. But if they feel that is their man, they shouldn't even mess around with trying to get just an extra 3rd and a backup player. If someone traded up in front of them then they look really stupid passing on their guy for only a 3rd round pick and a guy they want as a backup.
To me the gamble isn't worth a 3rd round pick. If it works out for them it's like a golfclap of a trade! If it doesn't it's like Santa Clause in Philly type of trade!
Just not worth it if JJ isn't going to be their QB.
Some are saying 2nd rounder others 3rd rounder. I doubt St Louis makes the move unless it's a 2nd.
