Jeff Fisher and the Rams are in line for a busy night with 4 picks in two rounds.

After an exciting first day of the 2012 NFL Draft the Rams are moving into the second day of the draft with 4 picks. They own picks 33, 39, 45 and 65. The depth of this draft could allow the Rams to pick up two or three starters with their picks today. A look at some of the top players left who could interest the Rams after the jump.

Stephen Hill

Hill is a physical specimen who at the very least would give the Rams a legitimate deep threat. He combination of height, weight and speed in impressive, but he does not have much experience with route running playing in that triple option offense at Georgia Tech.

Rueben Randle

At 6' 4" 220 lbs, Randle is physically impressive. He isn't as explosive at Hill, but he has more experience. He still is far from a complete player and is still very raw. Many compare him to the Giants Hakeem Nicks.

Cordy Glenn

The Bulldogs offensive linemen was expected to be a first round pick, but he has now fallen to the 2nd. He is a tremendous run blocker who can either play guard or right tackle in the NFL.

Jonathan Martin

Martin protected Andrew Luck's blindside at Stanford quite well, but many do not see him being a LT in the NFL, explaining his fall.

Amini Silatolu

Silatolu is a guard from a small school, Midwestern State. Jeff Fisher has had great success with small school offensive linemen before, and he will certainly be in consideration for the Rams at pick 45.

Coby Fleener

Fleener is a TE who compares very nicely to Aaron Hernandez. He is not a good blocker, but he moves very well and can make plays down the field. He was also very good in the red zone for Stanford, an area that the Rams are horrible in. The Rams did draft Lance Kendricks last season, but multiple TE sets are the new rage in the NFL.

Peter Knoz

He is a Wisconsin linemen pure and simple. He was a mauler for the Badger's running game. He could play LG for the Rams and then shift over to C when Scott Wells is done.

Janoris Jenkins

His talent isn't in question, but his off the field issues that include having 4 children with three women and multiple arrest have dropped his stock to the second round. The Rams had pre-draft visits with Jenkins and Jeff Fisher has had success with problem players in the past. The Rams could also use help at CB with Bradley Fletcher and Jerome Murphy coming off severe injuries.

Alshon Jeffery

There is no prospect who has had a bigger fall from grace. He was considered to be the next Calvin Johnson before last season. He had a horrible year. He was overweight and at times seemed disinterested. Could Jeff Fisher motivate him?

Lavonte David

David is the best 4-3 OLB in this class. He was very impressive at Nebraska. He is a smart player who can be a three down LB in the NFL. He would be a great fit for the Rams at either WLB or SLB.
