NFL Draft 2012: Rams Trade No. 6 Pick To Cowboys

On Thursday, during the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams traded their first-round pick to the Dallas Cowboys. The move was just one of a flurry of early trade moves in a frantic opening round.

The Rams were the holders of the No. 6 overall pick, which they opted to switch with the Rams, in exchange for the No. 14 and No. 45 overall picks in the draft. This move doesn't overly hurt the Rams and they pick up another draft pick. The Seattle Seahawks are certainly keeping tabs on what their NFC Division rivals the Rams are doing in the draft and how they're approaching their game plan.

The Cowboys used that No. 6 overall pick to select Morris Claiborne, a cornerback from the LSU Tigers. The Cowboys were dead-set on getting defensive back help in the draft and were willing to trade up to get it.
