NFL Draft Order 2015: Every St. Louis Rams Draft Pick in Each Round


Thursday kicks off this year’s NFL Draft, and the St. Louis Rams will be looking to acquire some difference-makers. With the exception of 2014 first-rounder Aaron Donald, the Rams have had difficulty finding high-impact players in the draft since coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead took over in 2012.

Michael Brockers and Janoris Jenkins, both early picks from this administration’s first draft, have had nice moments but have been inconsistent overall. Wideout Tavon Austin, who they traded up to get in 2013, is already receiving “bust” labels. Linebacker Alec Ogletree has been solid but was no better than the fourth-most impactful ‘backer in the NFC West during 2014. Offensive lineman Greg Robinson, the second overall pick in 2014, was benched for the first four games of the season before going on to deliver an alright but unimpressive performance as a rookie left tackle. Thus, the Rams will be looking this year to find someone who will go on to be recognized as one of the league’s best at their position.

Just fair warning if you’re a Rams fan: it may not be worth it to tune in to the third day of the draft. While the Rams found one of their most impactful starters, cornerback E.J. Gaines, in the sixth round, none of the five players who were picked following him (Garrett Gilbert, Mitchell Van Dyk, Christian Bryant, Michael Sam, and Demetrius Rhaney) saw action for the Rams during 2014. Since Fisher and Snead arrived, the Rams haven’t placed much emphasis on the draft’s late rounds; Gaines and kicker Greg Zuerlein are the only sixth-rounder who have been drafted by this front office and gone on to see action, while since-released running back Daryl Richardson is the only one of Fisher and Snead’s six seventh-rounders to crack the active roster.

Here are all the picks that the Rams are scheduled to have this weekend:

Round 1, Pick 10 (10th overall)

Round 2, Pick 9 (41st overall)

Round 3, Pick 8 (72nd overall)

Round 4, Pick 20 (119th overall)

Round 6, Pick 39 (215th overall)

Round 7, Pick 10 (227th overall)
