Earlier this afternoon Adam Schefter tweeted that the Rams have had discussions with the Dolphins, Browns, and Redskins about trading the number 2 pick.

Note that the Dolphins also had the chance to sit down and interview the potential number 2 pick Robert Griffin the 3rd. While the Dolphins originally seemed like a long shot to land RG3, buzz that the Browns might not be so hot on the young Baylor gunslinger leaves them in an interesting place.

While everyone and their first cousin knows that Peyton Manning seems like the number 1 priority for the Dolphins brass, should the Dolphins not be able to land the Sheriff, RG3 might become the backup plan.

While there have been smoke screens about the Phins wanting Manning, Tannehill, Flynn and next we will probably hear some smoke about them wanting Jay Fiedler back, the idea of drafting Baylor’s QB is an interesting one.

RG3 ran a 4.41 forty time and impressed all scouts by with his unbelievable athleticism in all the NFL combine drills, while also impressing the media at the podium and interviews. RG3 wants to give Andrew Luck a run for his money and seemed poised to be something special in the NFL.

The Rams confirmed today that the Rams will deal the pick and its just a matter of who will move up and what they are willing to give up.

Schefter said that the price tag for the 2nd overall pick will be similar to when the Giants traded up for Eli Manning :  2 1st round picks, 1 3rd round pick and 1 5th .

While some may think that is a steep price, I think it is 100% worth it for a potential franchise QB like RG3 with all the talent he posses.

The Dolphins has failed to take a risk or leap in the draft in years and there is no time better than to find your next franchise QB.

To put things into perspective, if the Dolphins traded for the 2nd pick based on players they currently drafted the trade would look like.

Dolphins : RG3

Rams : Mike Pouncey( 1st in 2011) , Jared Odrick( 1st in 2010) , John Jerry (3rd in 2010) Nolan Carroll ( 5th in 2010)

While Pouncey is a very solid center and Oddrick is a nice player, clearly the need for a franchise QB is the better of the two options. This is a QB driven league and with Matt Moore as your starter you clearly aren’t winning a Super Bowl any time soon.

So my friends, would you trade up for RG3 ??
