With the amount of mock drafts out there, there have been some very interesting scenarios, and many realistic mocks which have Left Tackle Luke Joekel available to the Lions
at the number five pick in the draft. Taking a look through the picks, I have noticed that the Rams
have two first round selections, number sixteen, and number twenty two overall in the first round. Left Tackle is an obvious and glaring need for the Rams, especially since the failure of the Jason Smith
experiment at Left Tackle. Sam Bradford
continues to take a pounding at quarterback, and it looks like a trade here might be a viable choice for them. On the trading point scale that many evaluators use, the Lions number five pick is worth 1700 points, while the Rams two first round selections total 1780 points, making this trade much more realistic than what one would think initially. With so many of the same names floating from the top ten to all the way down to the second round (i.e. Mingo, Montgomery), would you pull the trigger on a trade like this if it were offered?
