ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams addressed their greatest area of need with the first pick of the second round of the NFL draft Friday night, taking wide receiver Brian Quick of Appalachian State.

The 6-3, 222-pound Quick had 71 receptions for 1,096 yards and a 15.4-yard average and 11 touchdowns his senior season. Former Rams wide receiver greats Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt announced the pick.

The Rams went out and got a pass catcher for Sam Bradford, the top pick of the 2010 draft. Wide receiver has been the Rams' biggest weakness the last several years.

With their second pick in the second round the Rams drafted cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who finished his college career at North Alabama after getting dismissed from Florida.

The 5-9, 190-pound Jenkins was a three-year starter at Florida who transferred after multiple run-ins with the law related to marijuana. Some mock drafts had Jenkins possibly going in the first round, but he dropped to the second day due to character issues.

St. Louis drafted a potential backup running back behind two-time Pro Bowler Steven Jackson, taking Isaiah Pead of Cincinnati with the third of their second-round picks.

The 5-11, 200-pound Pead ran for 1,259 yards with a 5.3-yard average and 12 touchdowns last year with five 100-yard games. He added 39 receptions with an 8.2-yard average and three TDs. Pead also rushed for 1,000 yards his junior year.

Jackson is coming off his seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season and has showed no signs of slowing down. But the Rams have lacked a quality change of pace back for several years

With their third-round pick, the St. Louis Rams chose a defensive back Trumaine Johnson of Montana.

NFL.com said the 6-foot-2, 204-pound Johnson was arguably one of the best prospects to emerge from the Big Sky Conference in several years and he was rated the best draft prospect at the small college level and most underrated defensive back by the NFL draft report. Johnson started 42 of 47 games at Montana and had 15 career interceptions.

Johnson also played free safety in college. He expects to begin his pro career at cornerback.
