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

NFL exec wonders if this Garoppolo-to-Browns trade makes sense for the 49ers

The Cleveland Browns have lost two consecutive games. Their quarterback, Baker Mayfield, is ailing. He had his arm in a sling after the Browns' 37-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend and said this of his shoulder: "It feels like s--t." Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2. He landed hard on that same shoulder on Sunday following a sack by Cardinals defender J.J. Watt. With the November 2 trade deadline approaching, San Francisco 49ers fans should brace themselves for a lot of Jimmy Garoppolo chatter now that the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, has a start under his belt. The team has expressed a preference to ride out the season with the more experienced Garoppolo at the helm. Does that change depending on how these next two games



49ers' Jimmie Ward calls Buckner trade 'bittersweet,' questions how division rival keeps pulling off big roster moves

Sunday night will be a reunion for many San Francisco 49ers players. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2020. "He was the heart and soul when he was here, man," safety Jimmie Ward said of Buckner after today's practice. "I wasn't happy about [the trade], but I understand the business side. I'm pretty sure you all knew something was going to happen, just like I did. I just didn't know what was going to happen. "When that happened, like I said, it was bittersweet. We ended up getting [Javon] Kinlaw, and we ended up getting Brandon Aiyuk. But we lost a leader, especially a leader on the defense. Really, a leader on this team, in this building. But he's



Peter King explains why 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo is an undesirable trade target

The trade deadline always creates speculation across the league. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo landed with the San Francisco 49ers at the trade deadline in 2017. The Niners traded for wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders about a week before the trade deadline in 2019. The 49ers have two more games before this year's trade deadline. Garoppolo is expected to be the team's starter this weekend against the Indianapolis Colts. Assuming he remains healthy, he will likely be the starter the next weekend against the Chicago Bears. Fans hoping for San Francisco to deal its veteran quarterback, officially passing the torch to rookie Trey Lance, and recouping some draft capital in the process, might be disappointed. One longtime NFL writer doesn't believe Garoppolo is going



DeForest Buckner reflects on trade that sent him from 49ers to Colts

DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since the San Francisco 49ers traded the defensive lineman to the Indianapolis Colts last year. On Wednesday, he jumped on a conference call with 49ers reporters and reflected on the surprising move. "In the moment, when you told me, when it was official, when I got traded, the feelings that I was feeling, if you told me that I was going to feel this way a year-and-a-half later, I would have said you're crazy," Buckner told reporters. "But everything happens for a reason, and the Lord put me here for a reason, and I'm very happy for the decisions that were made." Money was obviously an obstacle in San Francisco holding onto the talented defender. Buckner said the 49ers never offered him anything
