St Louis Rams and Washington Redskins Trade for RGIII - What everyone got

I have not been able to find this information on the web so I thought I would put it here. Below is the current outcome of the blockbuster trade between Washington and St. Louis. Unlike other lists this includes the trades resulting from the initial trade and who was taken with that pick.

Washington Redskins

2012 Round 1 Pick 2: Robert Griffin III - QB - Baylor

St Louis Rams

2012 Draft

Round 1 Pick 14: Michael Brokers - DT - LSU
Round 2 Pick 50: Isaiah Pead - RB - Cincinnati
Traded the original round 2 pick 45 to the Chicago Bears for Chicago's (round 2) 50th and (round 5) 150th pick
Round 5 Pick 150: Rokevious Watkins - OG - South Carolina

2013 Draft

Via Wikipedia

"The Rams acquired an additional first-round selection — No. 22 overall — as part of a trade that sent their 2012 first-round selection to the Washington Redskins. The Rams later traded the No. 22 selection and a 2015 seventh-round selection (previously acquired in a 2012 trade that sent wide receiver Greg Salas to the New England Patriots) to the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for the Falcons' 2013 first-, third- and sixth- round selections — Nos. 30, 92 and 198 overall, respectively. The No. 198 selection, along with the Rams' original sixth-round selection (No. 184 overall), was traded to the Houston Texans in exchange for the Texans' fifth-round selection (No. 160 overall)."

*Lets offset the 2015 seventh round selection with the 2013 sixth-round selections to stop this becoming too absurd.

Round 1 Pick 30: Alec Ogletree - LB - Georgia
Round 3 Pick 92: Stedman Bailey: WR - West Virginia
Round 5 Pick 160: Zac Stacy - RB Vanderbilt

2014 Draft

Round 1 Pick unknown

David Butler - Railroaders @ Revolution: Runaway Revolution Leave Railroaders At The Platform

Crewe Railroaders – 0Shropshire Revolution - 55

Shropshire Revolution were able to rebound from their defeat to Manchester Titans two weeks prior with a commanding 55-0 victory away at Crewe Railroaders, advancing to a 4-2 record on the season. The Revolution Offense in clinical fashion totted up 4 Touchdowns in each half whilst the Defense secured a shut-out for the first time since the 2011 season.

Marking the first ever meeting between the two clubs the visitors arrived debuting their resplendent new yellow jerseys befitting of the glorious sunny South Cheshire conditions. Quarterback Richard Mantle making his first start of the season set the tone for the day when on their opening Drive of the game the visitors marched down field allowing Mantle to connect with Tight End Stephen Lawrence from 11 yards out for the opening score. The Shropshire attack would find the end zone on each of their next 3 possessions firstly Mantle himself powering his way for his fourth rushing Touch Down of the season, whilst Full Back Tom Altinok bundled in the third from a yard out before youth graduate Lee Burnside would out sprint the Crewe Defense on 60 yard scamper to give his side a 25-0 lead at Half Time.

The Purple Defensive unit would get in on the action when Defensive End Andy Barnett capping off a devastating individual display would add 2 points to the away sides total, Barnett’s thunderous hit on the Crewe Quarterback under the shadow of his own goal posts recorded a Safety. A second half Stephenson Ardern-Sodje air and ground double coupled with a second Lee Burnside score were added to the total, the icing on the Revolution cake came with the welcome sight of Running Back Leigh French returning from injury as he completed the rout with a short yardage rushing score in the fourth quarter.

The Railroaders entered the game with a very healthy scoring record averaging 27 points from their first 5 games but struggled to move the ball against an Andy Barnett led Defense, in addition Cornerback Dan Stant and Linebacker Mark Lingwood snagged a pair interceptions to help secure the clean sheet.

Shropshire Head Coach Dave Reid paid tribute to the play of his lineman on the day stating “Our physicality up front on both sides of the ball was the major difference between the two teams today, which is especially tough in such testing conditions”. Reid would also point to the contribution of young Running Back Lee Burnside who recorded his first ever senior level Touchdowns “ The whole team were delighted for Lee and especially the coaching staff, Lee has stepped up in the last 3 games to lead the rushing attack in the absence of Leigh French and it was great to see him have a run out today also”

Shropshire now host second place Chester Romans on Sunday the 21st of July in a vital clash in the BAFANL Central Division, the game is at Oakengates Leisure Centre 2.30 Kick-off.
