Groundbreaking trades are rare in the NFL where players and draft picks are protected with Secret Service-like measures. This is what makes the trade from the Washington Redskins to the St. Louis Rams all the more exciting.
The Redskins have agreed to send three first-round picks (2012, 2013, 2014) and their 2012 second-round pick to the Rams in exchange for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft—and the rights to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III (or Andrew Luck, technically).
How does this trade change the order of the first round? Considerably.
