Yes I know.

They still have a horrible defense and no offense besides Jackson.

Yes and FIVE #1 picks and FOUR #2 picks in the next 3 years. Washington will suck with a rookie QB next year so the pick will be high. Unless the Rams totally screw this up they will be back.

Well they need a lot of help on offense and defense and even if they hit on all their number 1 picks they still have to win the division from us....fat chance
Isn't it really just two first rounders if you think about it. They switched first rounders this year so that was for one of the first rounders and the second to move from 6 to 2. So if you think about it it's two first rounders since to move up they gave their first and second this year
Rams have all the ammunition they need to make another deal with the Browns if they so choose. Going forward, they have all the ammunition they need to get good again really fast. Thanks a lot Dan Snyder! Just made the Niners job more difficult moving forward.........

Those two #1's are probably going to be two top 10's.

So they get blackmon this year plus an extra 2nd which they could combine with the 2nd they already had in order to potentially trade back into the 1st for help on the o-line or something. If they did that then they would have two 1sts three years in a row.

Even if they draft like the Raiders it's hard to see them not seriously challenging us for the division every year with that much top talent headed their way.

If the skins strike gold with RGIII and do make the playoffs, and the rams also make the playoffs, they STILL could combine those two picks and get into the top 10. This just gives them so much freedom to address a ton of needs the next few years.
I think the skins are a 6 to 8 win team. Good defense and good running game. Let's hope they can steal vjax or another wr that will give them 1 or 2 wins. Even so, the rams have a history of bad drafting, and this new gm may or may not turn that around.
So, this really shakes up the draft. The Rams could end up with the pick they wanted at number 6, with either Claiborne or Blackmon, if the Browns reach for Tannehill at number 4. Could it be they think the Browns will surely draft Tannehill at 4?

The scenario below is within the realm of possibility
1. Luck
2. Griffin
3. Kalil
4. Tannehill
5. Claiborne/Blackmon
6. Blackmon/Claiborne

The only way this could backfire in this draft would be if the Browns drafted Blackmon at 4, the Bucs pick Claiborne at 5, and the Rams do not have a player they really want at 6. I would think they have thoroughly thought this out in advance, and have another target in place at number six, as a worst case scenario. I would think that player is Riley Reiff

I dont see any chance they win 8 games. Dallas and Philly will be better and the Giants will be good again. 4-6 wins is more likely

Browns have to take Tannehill at 4 now or he'll go to the Dolphins at 8. 3 top 10 QBs again seems like a sure thing.

True they will get talent but it could be the carrier bust type or the smith ol bust type and so on. They still need to fill every hole on defense except for long, and every hole on offense except RB guard and hell bradford isn't a sure thing. Too many holes to fill in three years but they still need to beat us which they will not.

Not a chance in hell they take Tannehill at #4.

They beat the g men twice with grossman and they are competitive in a lot of their games, I see them winning 6 to 7

The last paragraph is exactly how this will play out unless there are trades. Cleveland isnt going to pass on Blackmon for a huge stretch in Tannehill. I see the Rams getting Reiff as it is a position of need for them.
