ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams continued to address an area of need Saturday with the selection of wide receiver Chris Givens of Wake Forest in the fourth round.

The 5-foot-11, 198-pound Givens amassed 2,473 receiving yards on 163 receptions in his career. Last season, Givens set a school single-season record with 1,330 yards. He caught 83 passes and had nine touchdowns.

Givens also returned kicks and had 45 rushing attempts at Wake Forest. Givens finished with 3,509 all-purpose yards.

Givens is the second receiver the Rams have selected in this draft to help quarterback Sam Bradford, the top pick in the 2010 draft. In the second round, St. Louis drafted wide receiver Brian Quick of Appalachian State.
