So long quarterbacks? New draft order following Rams trade to No. 1

Apr 14, 2016 at 7:10 AM--


In a move that will certainly throw everyone's mock drafts into chaos, the NFC West rival Los Angeles Rams have moved into the number one spot in this month's NFL Draft following a trade with the Tennessee Titans.

The Rams give up their first-round pick (15th overall), two second round picks, a third round pick, and first and third round picks next year to the Titans, per the Los Angeles Times. The Rams get the Titans' number one overall, a fourth round pick, and a sixth round pick this year.

The trade certainly changes the landscape of the draft. Likely gone will be the two top quarterback prospects in Jared Goff and Carson Wentz to the Rams and the Cleveland Browns – not necessarily in that order. NFL Media's Albert Breer reports the Rams already have conducted on-campus workouts with both quarterbacks.

What this does mean is that a solid non-quarterback prospect may fall to the San Francisco 49ers' pick at seventh overall.


Here is the new updated draft order in the first round.

  1. Rams (From Titans)
  2. Browns
  3. Chargers
  4. Cowboys
  5. Jaguars
  6. Ravens
  7. 49ers
  8. Eagles (From Dolphins)
  9. Buccaneers
  10. Giants
  11. Bears
  12. Saints
  13. Dolphins (From Eagles)
  14. Raiders
  15. Titans (From Rams)
  16. Lions
  17. Falcons
  18. Colts
  19. Bills
  20. Jets
  21. Redskins
  22. Texans
  23. Vikings
  24. Bengals
  25. Steelers
  26. Seahawks
  27. Packers
  28. Chiefs
  29. Cardinals
  30. Panthers
  31. Broncos

The 49ers Should Not, and Will Not, Trade Up to Draft a QB

By Brian Renick
Feb 18, 2021

Carson Wentz was traded on February 18th, 2021, from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, for a 2021 3rd-round pick and a 2022 2nd-round pick that can turn into a 1st-round pick if Wentz reaches 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021 or 70% of the offensive snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. With Wentz headed out of Philadelphia, there is not a single quarterback drafted in the first round from the 2012 through 2016 NFL drafts who is still with the team that drafted him (with some not even in the NFL anymore). That is an astounding stretch of incredibly poor quarterback drafting. It also highlights a very important fact about drafting a quarterback in the first round: there are significantly more busts than hits. The 49ers



Florio predicts the 49ers will release Jimmy Garoppolo rather than trade or keep the QB

By David Bonilla

What will the San Francisco 49ers do with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? The simple answer is that the team will retain his services, should a perceived upgrade not present itself. If a perceived upgrade is acquired, then the team will likely try to shop the quarterback. "Most presume he'll be traded," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "But here's the question: If the 49ers don't want to keep Garoppolo at the balance of his current contract, who would trade for the thing?" The New England Patriots would likely welcome back Garoppolo with open arms — for the right price. They have the cap space to absorb his salary.



Peter King weighs in on what it might cost for 49ers to trade for Deshaun Watson

By Kirk Larrabee

Would the 49ers be willing to trade one of their top two young defensive stars, a slew of draft picks, and more if it meant getting Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson in return? It's possible that's the type of package they might have to ship in Houston's direction if they ever have the chance. And it's one that NBC Sports NFL writer Peter King proposes in his latest Football Morning In America column, in which he comes up with his own deals for teams that could be interested in bringing the three-time Pro Bowl quarterback into the fold. King starts this discussion with an important disclaimer, which is the Texans have yet to give any sign whatsoever that they are actually interested in trading Watson, even though Watson (4,823 passing yards, 33
