2011 NFL Draft Rumors: Cowboys And Rams Planning Trade?

VanRam, manager of the Rams' SB Nation site Turf Show Times writes that reports have surfaced that the Cowboys and Rams are talking about trading their first round picks. The Rams hold the 14th pick, and could be willing to move up, particularly if Julio Jones falls to the No. 9 spot.

According to ESPN's Todd McShay via Rotoworld, there is a chance that the Rams could move up in the draft to get their the talented wide receiver..

ESPN's Todd McShay said on SportsCenter Friday that he's heard rumblings around the league that the Rams are angling to trade up for the No. 9 overall pick in the draft.

One of the reason the Rams might have to jump all the way to No. 9 is that the Redskins are lurking in the 10th spot and might themselves have a keen interest in Julio Jones and would likely take him if he's still available when the Redskins are on the clock. Given that all of this is contingent on Jones actually falling to the 9th spot, this is a trade that will get made on draft day - if at all.

Also, this is the time of year where unsubstantiated rumors take on a life of their own. The rumor may just as easily have been started by the Cowboys trying to move down.
