ST. LOUIS (AP) – The St. Louis Rams have selected Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 30th overall pick in the NFL draft and their second in the first round.
    
Ogletree likely fills a starting vacancy at outside linebacker for the Rams, who addressed another area of need earlier in the first round and took West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin with the eighth pick.
    
The Rams entered the day with the 16th and 22nd picks. They traded up eight spots with Buffalo to get Austin and traded down eight spots to get the 6-3, 242-pound Ogletree.
    
Ogletree left Georgia after his junior season when he totaled 111 tackles in 10 games, all but one of them starts. Ogletree was suspended the first four games last season and had a DUI arrest a week before the combine.
