(Newser) – The St. Louis Rams picked Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford with the No. 1 selection in the NFL draft tonight. The 2008 Heisman Trophy winner convinced the Rams he's recovered from shoulder surgery last October. He better have: St. Louis was 1-15 a year ago and has a sorry 6-42 record the past three years.

Other top picks:

  1. Detroit: Ndamukong Suh (DT), Nebraska
  2. Tampa Bay: Gerald McCoy (DT), Oklahoma
  3. Washington: Trent Williams (OT), Oklahoma
  4. Kansas City: Eric Berry (S), Tennessee
