I've been thinking of this from the other teams' perspective--that it would be easier for KC to trade for the pick if teams like Cleveland, Washington, Miami and Seattle 'settled' their QB situation at the opening of Free Agency--but never thought about the inverse, why St Louis would and SHOULD want to trade the pick NOW.
If that is the case, then Pioli should try to
sneak in and acquire the pick much like he acquired Cassel before McDaniels and Denver and any other interested team could.http://espn.go.com/nfl/draft2012/story/_/id/7628882/nfl-robert-griffin-iii-no-brainer-washington-redskins-others
"The right price is thought to be in the neighborhood of what San Diego received for Eli Manning in 2004: two first-round picks, plus a third- and a fifth-rounder. It was a king's ransom for the Giants then, but given their two Super Bowl victories since, it was well worth it....
"The Rams, who have needs on both sides of the ball, would love to get as much.
"They also likely would have preferred to trade the pick on Tuesday, because their leverage never will be greater. Free agency hasn't started. Peyton Manning is still a Colt. Matt Flynn is still a Packer. Teams still have quarterback needs."
