The St. Louis Rams were able to make a move for a higher pick in round one of the 2004 NFL Draft on Saturday. They traded their 26th pick to Cincinnati and moved up two spots to 24th. With the pick they selected Oregon St. running back Steven Jackson. In two starting seasons with the Beavers, Jackson rushed for 1,545 yards and scored 19 touchdowns. He was also effective out of the backfield as a receiver, catching 44 passes for 470 yards and three more touchdowns. In 2002, he rushed for 1,690 yards and 19 TD’s. He skipped his senior season to make himself eligible for this year’s draft. The Rams also gave the Bengals one of their two fourth-round pikcs… The Chiefs did some dealing as well, but they went the other direction. Kansas City traded down, giving their first round selection at number 30 to the Lions and took Detroit’s pick in the second round pick at number 36. They used the selection to take defensive tackle Junior Sivaii from Oregon. Siavii, who was a junior college transfer, didn’t even start until his senior season. He made 58 tackles for the Ducks and recorded 2.5 sacks. Siavii checks in at 6-4 and 344lbs. In the Sun Bowl against Minnesota, he made seven tackles and was named the defensive player of the game in a 31-30 loss. The Lions also gave the Chiefs a fourth-round pick in this year’s draft and a fifth-round selection in 2005.
