For the first time ever, NFL teams will be eligible to trade their compensatory picks, that has been awarded in this season 2017 NFL draft. If awarded, the Los Angeles Rams are expected to trade one of of the three compensatory picks that they are expected to receive from players being signed by other NFL teams last off-season. The Rams moved up in the 2016 NFL Draft with the Tennessee Titans by trading picks to put themselves in position to draft Jared Goff, out of the University California of Berkeley.
The terms of the Rams trade with the Titans to acquire the number one overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, included the Rams first-round pick and a third-round pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Titans more than likely will receive the Rams 3rd round compensatory pick if awarded, are from terms of the Rams Goff trade last year. The Rams will be receiving that pick because they lost Janoris Jenkins in free agency whom signed a free agent deal with the New York Giants last offseason.
The Los Angeles Rams are hoping to be awarded the three following compensatory picks:
A third-round draft pick for losing CB Janoris Jenkins to the New York Giants.
A fourth-round draft pick for losing S Rodney McLeod to the Philadelphia Eagles.
A sixth-round draft pick for losing DT Nick Fairley to the New Orleans Saints.
If the Rams receive a third-round compensatory pick, the compensatory pick will be given to the Titans and the Rams will keep their normal third-round pick. Rams organization and fans are keeping fingers crossed that they are awarded, the picks they are definitely in need of picks to help this organization in a rebuilding process.
The Rams currently draft selections will be a second round, third round (if compensatory awarded), fourth round (includes 4th round compensatory pick if awarded), fifth round, sixth round (includes 6th round compensatory pick if awarded), and seventh round draft picks.
