NFL analyst Hub Arkush, on The Boers and Bernstein Show (Chicago’s 670 The Score), said Wednesday that he has heard that the Rams could be interested in drafting USC phenom QB Matt Barkley in the first round and trading Sam Bradford.
This is only a rumor, but it would be an interesting, cost-effective way to get a quarterback that maybe Devaney and McDaniels feel better suits their system and get an extra player, pick or both in the process.
The teams that might be interested include the Browns and Redskins as their GM’s – Tom Heckert and Bruce Allen – were both high on Bradford coming out of college.
Don’t forget the Browns have a collage of picks from the Julio Jones trade with the Falcons in last year’s draft.
Barkley has not declared for the draft yet, yet he comes from the same conference where three QB’s did no help to their draft stock by playing as seniors: Jake Locker, Matt Leinart and Andrew Luck.
