That's not a total shock. The Rams had two top-15 selections, so head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead entered the draft with a clear advantage over other teams.
With the top selection (No. 2 overall), the Rams grabbed monster tackle Greg Robinson out of Auburn. He will open lanes for Zac Stacy and help keep Sam Bradford upright.
With the No. 13 pick, the Rams opted for defensive tackle Aaron Donald. He finished with an NFL-high 35 reps at the combine, per NFL.com. He's strong and fast and can rush the quarterback—perfect for the Rams defense.
Here's how the rest of the draft went:
Round 2 (No. 41 via Buffalo): DB Lamarcus Joyner, Florida State
Round 3 (No. 75): RB Tre Mason, Auburn
Round 4 (No. 110): S Maurice Alexander, Utah State
Round 6 (No. 188): CB E.J. Gaines, Missouri
Round 6 (No. 214): QB Garrett Gilbert, SMU
Round 7 (No. 226): T Mitchell Van Dyk, Portland State
Round 7 (No. 241): S Christian Bryant, Ohio State
Round 7 (No. 249): DE Michael Sam, Missouri
Round 7 (No. 250): C Demetrius Rhaney, Tennessee State
Despite this promising class, the fun is far from over. There are still a number of promising undrafted prospects available to be signed.
The Rams like to take advantage of this part of the process. Running back Benny Cunningham and linebackers Ray-Ray Armstrong and Daren Bates were undrafted rookies last season, and all three contributed in 2013.
St. Louis will attempt to find similar help this year. This article will highlight the top undrafted rookies available and keep you updated on each undrafted free-agent signing.
