What a difference four years makes, huh? Les Snead, the general manager of the then-St. Louis Rams, pulled off a trade that netted him eight players for his second overall pick, which the Washington Redskins infamously turned into RGIII. Yesterday, the same Les Snead of the now (again) Los Angeles Rams, traded away six picks for presumably their franchise quarterback.
That seems like a lofty sacrifice for one player. Especially when there isn’t one standout quarterback and the Rams reportedly traded for the pick two weeks early so they can decide which quarterback is their man.
So, does the trade make sense?
