Late last night, watching the Colts, it occurred to me that Indy might not get the first overall pick. What if the Colts win a very winable game next week vs. Jacksonville, and the Rams lose out? St. Louis would have the first overall pick, and lots of money committed to their franchise QB, Sam Bradford.
Buddy Nix trades three first round picks to St. Louis, and Andrew Luck is on the Bills. The other two teams in competition, the Dolphins and Redskins, won't finish so much higher than Buffalo, if higher at all, in the draft to compel the Rams to trade with them. And Buffalo has be out of the playoffs for a decade, and are a better bet to draft higher in 2013 and 2014.
What do you think?
