Notes
^[a] The Rams traded their first- (No. 16 overall), second- (No. 46 overall), original third- (No. 78 overall) and seventh- (No. 222 overall) round selections to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for the Bills' first- (No. 8) and third- (No. 71 overall) round selections.
^[b] The Rams acquired an additional first-round selection — No. 22 overall — as part of a trade that sent their 2012 first-round selection to the Washington Redskins. The Rams later traded the No. 22 selection and a 2015 seventh-round selection (previously acquired in a 2012 trade that sent wide receiver Greg Salas to the New England Patriots) to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for the Falcons' 2013 first-, third- and sixth- round selections — Nos. 30, 92 and 198 overall, respectively. The No. 198 selection, along with the Rams' original sixth-round selection (No. 184 overall), was traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for the Texans' fifth-round selection (No. 160 overall).
