Where Rams stand after trading back to 30th
By Mike Sando
This would be a good time to recap which picks the St. Louis Rams hold after trading up to select Tavon Austin and then trading out of the 22nd overall spot.
The chart shows which picks the Rams hold at present. It also shows the players they have drafted -- Austin, to this point -- and where the other picks originated.
The team needed to recoup picks, in my view, after spending capital to move up from the 16th spot to the eighth spot. The Rams had only 52 players on their roster entering the draft. They needed impact -- Austin provides that -- and they also needed numbers.
