The St. Louis Rams selected Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson with the second overall pick of the 2014 draft, completing their blockbuster trade with the Washington Redskins, which made the 2012 selection of Robert Griffin III possible for the Burgundy and Gold.

The Redskins two years ago agreed to send three first-round draft picks (in 2012, 2013 and 2014) and a 2012 second-round pick to the Rams to acquire the second overall pick. They used that pick to draft Griffin.

But St. Louis wound up getting more than just four players. They wound up using those picks to make a series of corresponding trades with Dallas, Atlanta and Houston — giving them a total of eight players for that pick.

We reviewed this earlier this week, but in case you missed it, here’s a look at the picks St. Louis made as a result of their trade with the Redskins, which triggered additional deals:

2012 draft:
Michael Brockers, DT, Rd. 1: Has made 28 starts in two seasons and has totaled 9.5 sacks, 5.5 of them last season.
Janoris Jenkins, CB, Rd. 2: Has made 30 starts in two seasons and has totaled five interceptions, including four in 2012.
Isaiah Pead, RB, Rd. 2,: Has made one start in two seasons and has totaled 75 rushing yards.
Rokevious Watkins, G, Rd. 5: Played one game as a rookie with the Rams and was waived. Played three games and made one start last season for the Chiefs.

2013 draft:
Alec Ogletree, LB, Rd. 1: Started all 16 games as a rookie and was credited with 117 tackles.
Stedman Bailey, WR, Rd. 3: Played in all 16 games, with two starts, last season and had 17 catches for 226 yards.
Zac Stacy, RB, Rd. 5: Rushed for 973 yards in 14 games as a rookie, including 12 starts.

2014 draft:
Greg Robinson, OT, ,Rd. 1:  The 6-foot-5, 332-pound Robinson had an impressive combine, clocking a 4.92-second 40-yard dash and 32 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press, and is viewed as a prospect that will develop into one of the elite tackles in the NFL.
