The St. Louis Rams went 7-9 in Jeff Fisher's second season as head coach in 2013, and they'll look to take the next step this year in a competitive NFC West with a core group of young players in key positions and a former No. 1 overall pick under center.
Here are five offseason additions who have the most to offer the Rams this year.
Joseph was a Pro Bowler with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2008 and 2011, before missing the entire 2012 season with a torn patella tendon and possibly not being back to full strength last year. He will compete with Roger Saffold for the starting job at right guard, and if Joseph can recapture his previous form he can help solidify the Rams' offensive line.
Injuries and off the field issues have kept Britt from reaching his potential over the last few seasons. The Rams have room for someone to step up as a primary target for Sam Bradford, and reuniting with Fisher may be what Britt needs to get his career back on track.
Donald was the Rams' second first-round pick in May (13th overall) and he's in line to make a immediate impact as part of a loaded defensive line. If Donald can earn a starting job coming out of camp and the preseason, he may quickly become the favorite for Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Zac Stacy is fairly well entrenched as St. Louis' No. 1 running back, but Mason is the favorite to be his backup and could make a push for a significant role fairly quickly.
St. Louis got the best offensive tackle in this year's draft class by taking Robinson second overall. He is expected to start immediately at left guard, but his future is at left tackle once Jake Long's time with the Rams is over.
