Former University of Louisville offensive lineman Jamon Brown became the second Cardinals' player selected in the 2015 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-4, 325-pound Brown was picked in the third round with the 72nd pick by the St. Louis Rams on Friday night.

"He is a wide body," ESPN analyst Todd McShay said. "He's a human-being mover off the line of scrimmage."

Brown was a three-year starter at either left or right tackle at Louisville and was named to an all-conference team on two occasions.
