ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have addressed an area of need in the third round of the NFL draft, taking prolific receiver Austin Pettis of Boise State.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Pettis had 134 catches for 24 touchdowns his last two seasons. He's a nephew of Texas Rangers third base coach Gary Pettis.
St. Louis took tight end Lance Kendricks of Wisconsin in the second round earlier Friday. The Rams drafted former North Carolina defensive end Robert Quinn with the 14th overall pick.
