ith the first pick in the 2014 draft, the St. Louis Rams select ... While not necessarily likely, it is certainly within the realm of possibility that the Rams will have the No. 1 overall draft pick following Sunday’s games — the final games of the 2013 NFL regular season. If that were the case, it would represent one final parting gift from the Washington Redskins coming out of the 2012 draft deal that sent a bevy of picks to the Rams and allowed the Redskins to select quarterback Robert Griffin III. Plain and simple, if Houston (2-13) wins at Tennessee (6-9), and Washington (3-12) loses at the New York Giants (6-9), the Rams will have the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming draft — the last of three first-round picks the Rams received in the RGIII trade. Should the Rams pick first it should give them increased opportunities to trade down, although it’s unclear who they might take if they stayed at No. 1. Keeping in mind that it’s still early — extremely early — many of the media mock drafts have Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr, and either Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles or Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr in their top five.
Rams could end up with No. 1 pick
