(FootballStL) -- It’s still more than two weeks away, but it’s unclear if the St. Louis Rams will use their second pick in this year’s NFL Draft or trade it. Even draft experts from CBS Sports and the NFL Network as to what the Rams will do are split on what exactly the Rams will do from taking tackle Greg Robinson, receiver Sammy Watkins or trading the pick away.

One NFL Network analyst believes the Rams could draft Johnny Manziel with their second pick of the first round at number 13.

Reports: Rams may be interested in drafting Johnny Manziel

If the Rams don’t trade, CBS Sports’ Pat Kirwan and Will Brinson believe they will draft another wide receiver with their number two pick in taking Watkins out of Clemson.

However, CBS’ Pete Prisco and NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah think the Rams will take an offensive tackle in Robinson from Auburn.

According to their recent draft history, the Rams haven’t drafted a good tackle in the first round since taking Orlando Pace number one in 1997, other tackles drafted by the Rams in the first round include Alex Barron and Jason Smith. Both were released by their teams, the Oakland Raiders and New Orleans Saints respectively, back in 2013 and haven’t played since.

Then when it comes to the second pick of round one, could the Rams light a fire under quarterback Sam Bradford by potentially drafting Manziel if he’s still available at number 13? Charles Davis of NFL Network thinks so.
