With a pair of consecutive picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams may be looking at a lineman or two to help protect the draft investment of quarterback Sam Bradford and improve the run game, according to CBS Sports' latest mock draft.

With the 16th and 17th picks in the first round, draft analyst Rob Rang writes the Rams will select two offensive linemen: Taylor Lewan of Michigan, and Chance Warmack of Alabama. Lewan, a junior, is a 6'7 tackle who played in 36 games for the Wolverines. Warmack is a 6'2, 322-pound guard who played in 44 games for the Crimson Tide. Both teams are known for having good running games.

Rang's fellow analyst, Dane Brugler, has the Rams looking at offensive tackle Eric Fisher from Central Michigan. Like Lewan, Fisher is 6'7 and is experienced, having played 42 games. With the second pick, Brugler tabs Eric Reid, a free safety from LSU who had 81 tackles in 2012 and has six career interceptions.
