|Rams Take Wide Receiver Quick to Start Day 2
|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.
