Lance Kendricks became the third Badger to find a home in the NFL this weekend when the St. Louis Rams drafted him No. 47 overall in the second round Friday.
Kendricks was the second tight end to be drafted after Notre Dame's Kyle Rudolph went to Minnesota with the No. 43 overall pick.
St. Louis figures to be a pretty good destination for Kendricks, who will have Sam Bradford throwing him the ball. Tight end isn't a huge need for the Rams, but wide receiver certainly is, which means they think they have found a pass-catching weapon in the second round.
With very few passing options, it's possible Kendricks will quickly become a favorite target of Bradford's next season. It will be interesting to see how the Rams use him. Some question his blocking ability and the Rams might be thinking he's more of a receiver at this point.
The Rams selected defensive end Robert Quinn from North Carolina with the 14th overall pick in the first round.
