With a total of 12 picks, including two in the first round and the No. 2 overall pick, it’s bound to be an interesting draft for the St. Louis Rams. There are endless possibilities for what the Rams can do in this draft, but here are five names that St. Louis fans need to know heading into the 2014 NFL Draft.

5. Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State

If the Rams trade down from the No. 2 overall pick instead of taking an offensive lineman, Turner is going to be a player they covet later in the draft. He has the potential to play right tackle but could also excel moving to guard, which means he fits what St. Louis needs along the offensive line.

St. Louis added a lot of speed at wide receiver in last year's draft, and they're going to add even more this year. Ellington will combine with Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey to give the Rams a small but speedy trio of receivers that could potentially wreak havoc on opposing defenses if they get the right quarterback in St. Louis.

3. Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

The Rams are in the market for a safety, and if they can't get Ha-Ha Clinton Dix with the No. 13 overall pick, then Pryor is a good bet to be the player they take with their second pick of Round 1.

2. Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State

The Rams have shown some interest in Carr leading up to the draft, and they'd be wise to pick a quarterback at some point, even if it's not in Round 1. If Carr is available when St. Louis picks in Round 2, the Rams could take him and he could quickly take over for Sam Bradford as the team's starting quarterback.

1. Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn

If the Rams don't trade out of the No. 2 overall pick, Robinson is the player they have to take, assuming Jadeveon Clowney is No. 1 overall. Robinson will immediately become one of the most athletic offensive lineman in the league and change the shape of the St. Louis offensive line for years to come.
