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

Justin Fields of Ohio State spent about a week as the betting favorite to be the No. 3 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday, surpassing Mac Jones of Alabama. Jones regained the lead and has held onto it for the past five days. During all of that, Trey Lance of North Dakota State had been in the No. 3 spot. On Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network dropped a bombshell. It was news that had already been rumored, but the story means more when the longtime NFL insider reports it. Rapoport stated that the decision in the 49ers clubhouse has come down to two candidates — Jones and Lance. If accurate, it sounds like Fields may be out. The news has created a shift among betting odds. Jones remains the favorite. He is now following by Lance.

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9. The Niners' draft features the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The team also added two offensive linemen in Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, two running backs in Trey Sermon and Elijah

Seattle Seahawks tight end George Kittle. That probably doesn't sound very good to San Francisco 49ers fans, but it could have happened. The All-Pro recently spoke with Matt Verderame on the Stacking The Box podcast (h/t to Tzvi Machlin of The Spun) and shared a story from the 2017 NFL Draft when a team tried to move up to grab him. Kittle's agent told him that he felt the former Iowa tight end might be selected as high as the second round, if lucky. However, most likely, they were looking at somewhere between the third and the sixth rounds. The 49ers ended up selecting Kittle in the fifth round, No. 146 overall, but
