The St. Louis Rams have their hands full on more fronts than one this offseason, but the draft looms ever permanent.

With the last three days in April now firmly set on the calendar, we've also got the first 20 picks of the first round set:

1. Tennessee Titans: 3-13 (.492 strength of schedule)
2. Cleveland Browns: 3-13 (.531 SOS)
3. San Diego Chargers: 4-12 (.528 SOS)
4. Dallas Cowboys: 4-12 (.533 SOS)
5. Jacksonville Jaguars: 5-11 (.473 SOS)
6. Baltimore Ravens: 5-11 (.508 SOS)
7. San Francisco 49ers: 5-11 (.539 SOS)

18. Indianapolis Colts: 8-8 (.500 SOS)
19. Buffalo Bills: 8-8 (.508 SOS)
20. New York Jets: 10-6 (.441 SOS)

The Rams have six picks in all in the 2016 NFL Draft thanks to the Sam Bradford-Nick Foles trade that gifted them the Eagles' second round pickthe selection of Isaiah Battle in the Supplemental Draft that cost them their 2016 NFL Draft fifth-round pick and the trade for Case Keenum that sent the Rams' seventh-round pick to the Houston Texans:

Round Pick
1 #15
2 Rams pick
2 Rams pick via Eagles
3 Rams pick
4 Rams pick
6 Rams pick

In the last four years under Head Coach Jeff Fisher and General Manager Les Snead, the Rams have picked in the first round six times:

2012 14 Michael Brockers DT LSU
2013 8 Tavon Austin WR West Virginia
2013 30 Alec Ogletree OLB Georgia
2014 2 Greg Robinson OT Auburn
