2013 NFL Draft: Rams Trade Up For Bills Pick, Take Tavon Austin

The second trade within the first eight picks has occurred. The St. Louis Rams have struck a deal with the Buffalo Bills to move up to No.8 overall. It has been widely-documented that the Rams need some offensive weapons to couple with Isaiah Pead and co. The Rams gave up a king's ransom to move up.

The St. Louis Rams have selected West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin with the No.8 overall pick. Austin is the first wide receiver off of the board and can play multiple roles, as does Percy Harvin.
