The St. Louis Rams have plenty of ammunition in upcoming draft—two first-round picks to be exact—to solidify the roster and upgrade the team's playoff chances in 2014.
The Rams have multiple roster needs, and the draft can plug a few of those holes if done right.
Typically, it's not ideal to base draft-day decisions on roster needs. Drafting a player simply because he plays a position of need and passing on a better player in the process is not a recipe for success.
Having said that, if the Rams are on the clock and debating between two equally talented players, they'll most likely choose the player who plays the more convenient position. For example, if they're deciding between a defensive end and a safety who have equal grades as prospects, the Rams will draft the safety because that's the greatest roster need at the moment.
If the Rams do decide to approach the draft determined to fill all roster needs, here are several players capable of filling those needs. If any of these players are drafted, they'll be instant starters and make the Rams a better football team.
