ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams selected running back Daryl Richardson of Abilene Christian with their second pick in the seventh round Saturday.

The Rams used the 252nd selection — next to last — of the draft to pick 5-foot-11, 200-pound Richardson. It was a compensatory pick for St. Louis.

Richardson is the brother of former Abilene Christian running back Bernard Scott, who now plays for the Cincinnati Bengals.

As a senior, Richardson rushed for 867 yards, including a long run of 75 yards. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry and scored 11 touchdowns. Richardson also caught 40 passes for 371 yards and two touchdowns.
