The Los Angeles Rams have made a super trade with the Tennessee Titans that guarantees them the first-round NFL Draft pick in 2016. Buy Cheap Orioles Jerseys . Alex Ferguson tries to work out why the deal was made…. The NFL Draft almost guarantees crazy deals as teams swap players and prospects in an attempt to reach the top of the food chain.The Rams have this years No 1 pick after being given it by Tennessee Titans in exchange for their 15th pick, two second-round picks, one third-round pick and their first and third-round picks in 2017. In other words, Rams owner Stan Kroenke has exchanged the house for what could be a franchise quarterback.If the next Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning or John Elway were in the offing, then you could understand the deal. Rams want a new quarterback to complement Todd Gurley The Rams arent too far away from being a good team. Theyve got a great, young running back in Todd Gurley, a freak-like defensive tackle in Aaron Donald and other good young players.But the cupboard for quarterbacks in 2016 certainly isnt as tempting as it was in 2015, when two Heisman Trophy winners went as the first two draft picks.This year, the cupboard is pretty bare. Many seem impressed by California quarterback Jared Goff, but in his final year in college football for the Bears, he didnt produce many excuse me while I stand up and applaud moments.Goff was susceptible to interceptions (he led the Pac-12 Conference with 13). Though he had more than 4,700 passing yards last season, he also had an offense that set him up to throw (a lot). Will he be good enough for the NFL?The scouts will point to his 6ft 4in frame and say yes, but was he worth the deal with the Titans?Alternatively, people love Carson Wentz, the quarterback who wasnt particularly talked about when he was being recruited for colleges. Tennessee Titans Marcus Mariota isnt going anywhere He decided to play his football at FCS powerhouse North Dakota State (NDSU), the equivalent of playing in the Championship in English football compared to the Premier League. Wentzs hands were measured at ten inches in width - an inch bigger than Goffs. Even at FCS level, he was stunningly good.Hes 6ft 6in, a powerful runner (1,028 yards and 13 TDs) and threw the ball excellently (5,115 yards and 45 TDs) in only two years of starting. But will he be able to understand the complex NFL offensive schemes and play against NFL defences? I saw Wentz play several times last season for NDSU and didnt think he would be the first draft pick. Theres another reason why I dont like this monster deal with Tennessee: the Titans werent planning to get another quarterback.They already have a franchise quarterback in Marcus Mariota (although, frankly, they should do something about their offensive co-ordinator if they want to see the true greatness of Mariota), and they arent about to get rid of him.They could have made this trade with Cleveland or San Diego and still got a quarterback. It seems unlikely that Cleveland were going to draft a quarterback and San Diego had Philip Rivers and the no trade clause, which he had put in place after his contract extension in 2015.Unless the Rams are going to draft brilliant Ole Miss offensive linesman Laremy Tunsil because their offensive line isnt doing great (ranked 28th out of 32 in the Pro Football Focus rankings), this may be a truly terrible decision.  Also See: 2015 NFL Draft: Hits & misses Rams trade for No 1 pick NFL on Sky Sports No Colts bye week after London Darren ODay Jersey . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. Zach Britton Jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. . -- Canadian Andrew Wiggins got the ball on the wing, made a nifty spin move and then let go with a soft floater from about 10 feet that swished through the net in Allen Fieldhouse.Everton have made a second massive move for Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, according to Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan. Koeman was installed as the favourite to succeed the sacked Roberto Martinez on Merseyside earlier on Thursday and De Telegraaf writer Van der Kraan believes the Saints boss faces a huge decision in the next 24 hours.Koeman has been in talks over a new contract on the south coast, with his current deal set to expire in 2017, but reports in the Netherlands have claimed Koeman is on his way to Everton for talks along with his agent Rob Jansen. Koemans Southampton side qualified for the Europa League for the second season running Van der Kraan told Sky Sports News HQ: Everton have come out all guns blazing to try and get the man they wanted in the first place.When Ronald made it clear that Southampton was his priority and that his heart was there, he wasnt going to go. But, as happens more in football, sometimes when you say no the more they want you, and they have now come back in for him, and it looks very, very positive.They know that, when you look at the situation at Southampton, Ronald Koeman has a great set-up. Hes been boasting about the training facilities and the team hes built there and got into Europe twice in a row. You cant really say it can get any better.So for Everton to convince him, and come in for him a second time, means they have to offer him a massive package, with great prospects on the transfer market, otherwise there would be no point trying to speak to him at this moment. Koeman favourite for job Ronald Koemans odds to be the next Everton boss have been slashed They have other people on the horizon. Joey Rickard Jersey. I understand that, up until the weekend, Sevilla manager Unai Emery was a top candidate, and Frank de Boer has never been away from the table.But Koeman is the man Mr [Farhad] Moshiri [Evertons owner], really wants and hes made that clear. The next 24 hours could be very decisive. If I was putting my money on anything, it would be on Koeman heading north.Koeman took Southampton to a sixth-place finish last season and a second season in the Europa League, while Everton languished in the bottom half of the table and finished 11th.But Van der Kraan believes Koeman may feel he has taken the Saints as far as they can go with a limited budget, while Everton are anticipated to spend heavily with the investment of new owner Moshiri. Everton have also been interested in Sevilla boss Unai Emery He said: Significant transfer funds could absolutely be a decisive factor. At Southampton, hes built a good team, bought all the right players. He has a good eye for players and knows the European market very well.So that could make a major difference for him to go. He needs to improve a lot of things at Everton to even match, let alone improve, what hes got at Southampton.Ronald made it clear in his last column in De Telegraaf that, when he looks back at the last two seasons, he has really got the maximum out of the players that hes bought.He has had to work with a smaller package than clubs like Manchester United and hes put them into European football twice, and maybe he is got more out of them that anyone else could.
