Peter King’s MMQB this week leads off with a “49% chance” that Bradford ends up in Washington. We’ve already discussed the “king’s ransom” of picks that it would take to pry Bradford away from St Louis: here’s what Peter King throws out as a possible package:

Two #1s and a #2 for Bradford, with the chance to draft a possibly superior quarterback in Jimmy Clausen … that could be dream scenario for the rebuilding Rams.
What’s ironic is that if the Rams do trade out of the top spot, they could conceivably do it again in the second round, if Texas QB Colt McCoy slips past pick #32 (which is widely expected to happen). The target? Cleveland’s 6th pick in the second round, plus perhaps one of their three third-round choices.
Why move into the first round, when very few teams late in the round will likely be targeting him? This could be a very intriguing double-trade scenario for the Rams.
