One way of improving grip strength is to use a double over-hand grip on all your warm-up sets.
Generally I use it right up to when I feel the grip is starting to go and then I switch to mix grip! I've found this to be a great help.
One other thing you could look at here is the order of your compound movements. Only a small thing and may not even make any difference but I would deadlift first, then bench, then RDL!
