The LA Rams traded up with the Tennessee Titans from 15th to secure the #1 pick overall in the 2016 draft.
Few people left on the planet doubt that they will go after a QB-either Carson Wentz or Jared Goff.
It makes perfect sense to try and get the #1 pick since it creates buzz for the new LA Team (former STL Rams). Plus with a QB choice they are setting to tone for the team for years to come...hopefully a stud.
The price was pretty steep in terms of draft picks paid: two second round picks and a third round pick this year and a first round and third round in 2017 and the Rams 15th pick this year. The Rams get a fourth and sixth this year and the #1 pick overall this year.
