Rams Trade Up And Down In First Round

The St. Louis Rams pulled off not one, but two trades on the first night of the NFL Draft. First, they traded with Buffalo to move up from 16th to eighth in order to take speedy West Virginia wideout Tavon Austin. St. Louis also got a third-round pick in the deal, while sending the Bills the 16th overall pick as well as a second, third and seventh-rounder this year. The Rams then traded down, dealing the 22nd overall pick and a 2015 seventh-rounder to Atlanta for the 30th overall pick as well as a third and sixth-rounder this year. The Rams used the 30th overall pick to take Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
