The number thirteen pick overall in the 2007, former Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker was obviously thrilled to be joining the St. Louis Rams.
"The waiting? I wasn't too bad until we got to pick eleven when the Niners came up, because I knew anytime after that I was fair game" he said. "So I got a little anxious after that, and when the Rams came up I had a very good idea that they were going to take me."
