ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have selected Southern California safety T.J. McDonald in the third round of the NFL draft.
The 6-2, 219-pound McDonald led the Trojans with 112 tackles as a senior and could fill one of the Rams' two starting vacancies at safety.
McDonald's father, Tim McDonald, was a six-time Pro Bowl player who was a rookie with the Cardinals in 1987, their final season in St. Louis before moving to Arizona.
The Rams had a long wait for their first pick of the second day, giving their second-rounder to the Bills in the deal that landed them wide receiver Tavon Austin with the eighth overall pick. St. Louis filled another of need later in the first round, taking linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 30th pick.
