The Rams have been active on both draft days under coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead. Last year, they traded the second overall pick to the Redskins for a batch of premium picks, including the 22nd overall pick Thursday night.
The Bills also got the Rams' second- and seventh-round picks in the deal.
The 5-8, 172-pound Austin was considered the best overall wide receiver in the draft.
