ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Rams used their second pick of the first round to bolster their defensive front, taking Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald with the 13th overall selection Thursday night.

The 6-foot-1, 285-pound Donald won the Nagurski and Bednarik awards as the nation’s best defensive player, and the Outland and Lombardi as the country’s best lineman.

Donald was the team captain last season and thrived in a 3-4 alignment, leading the nation in tackles for loss. He ran a 4.68-second, 40-yard dash at the combine.
