NEW YORK CITY - The 2014 NFL Draft kicked off from Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Thursday night for the first round of the draft. The players drafted in the first round will receive 4-year NFL contracts and a fifth year option.

Here's a look at the picks made by the St. Louis Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs:

St. Louis Rams

  • 2nd overall pick - Auburn OT Greg Robinson. The 6-foot-5, 332-pound Robinson was a force at left tackle last year, starting every game for the national runner-ups. He could start at left tackle to begin the season if Jake Long isn't ready to go after offseason knee surgery. The pick was the final payout from the Robert Griffin III deal with the Redskins in 2012. The last time the Rams went for an offensive lineman at the top of the draft, they struck it big. Orlando Pace was the first overall pick in 1997 and was a seven-time Pro Bowler.
  • 13th overall pick, Pittsburgh DT Aaron Donald. The 6-foot-1, 285-pound Donald won the Nagurski and Bednarik awards as the nation's best defensive player, and the Outland and Lombardi as the country's best lineman. Donald was the team captain last season and thrived in a 3-4 alignment, leading the nation in tackles for loss. He ran a 4.68-second, 40-yard dash at the combine.
Kansas City Chiefs
  • 23rd overall pick - Auburn DE Dee Ford. The 6-foot-2, 252-pound Ford is a potential replacement for Tamba Hali or Justin Houston. With only one selection in the first two rounds, Kansas City was thought to be trying to trade out of its pick. General manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid wound up with Ford, eschewing a wide receiver or defensive back that could have filled bigger holes. Hali turns 31 in November while Houston is due to become a free agent after the upcoming season. Ford will likely move to outside linebacker and be groomed as a replacement. Ford made 10 1/2 sacks for the Tigers last season.

The 2014 NFL Draft will continue on Friday starting at 6 p.m. CT and Saturday from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. CT.
