NEW YORK (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams have closed out the 2008 NFL
draft by selecting Idaho defensive back/linebacker David Vobora.

In all, the two days and seven rounds took 14 hours, 26 minutes.

Day 2 began with Detroit selecting Central Florida running back Kevin Smith with the first pick of the third round. The Lions traded up two spots to grab the nation's leading rusher in 2007.

He was one of two All-Americans chosen in the third round. Penn State linebacker Dan Connor went to Carolina 10 spots after Smith.

National champion LSU was well-represented in the third round with defensive back Chevis Jackson going to Atlanta, running back Jacob Hester taken by San Diego and receiver Early Doucet drafted by Arizona.

Some notable quarterbacks were also chosen with Southern California's John David Booty going to Minnesota, Tennessee's Erik Ainge picked by the Jets and Oregon's Dennis Dixon taken by Pittsburgh.

Hawaii's record-setting slinger, Colt Brennan went to the Redskins in the sixth round.
