The Rams could be willing to do a trade for a 1st next year

I was looking at the Rams cap situation, and I honestly welcome anyone who knows more about the Rams situation to correct me because I've only been looking at it for a few minutes. But they don't have much cap space, they have Saffold to try and resign, they're yet to work out a contract extension for Quinn which is going to be probably in the $12-15 million dollar range, and they have the 2 first round picks this year including the #2 overall. Maybe the reason they're so willing to trade out of that spot has less to do with a lack of a need and more to do with a lock of money to afford signing someone with a #2 pick price tag. While it could be conceivable to draft Clowney and let Quinn go, why would you? Quinn is a proven player and if you draft Clowney you have to pay him, so if he turned out to be a bust there wouldn't be many options cause you couldn't afford to resign Quinn. If you're the Rams and your cap situation is this uncertain, wouldn't it make sense to trade out of the #2 spot for picks in next year's draft when you might have a better handle of the salary cap? Would it make sense for the Raiders to trade say, next year's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, or our 1st over the next two years for the #2 pick? Imagine drafting Clowney at #2 and Watkins, Matthews or one of the 3 Qb's TB, Johnny Football, or Bortles at #5?
