Rams select South Carolina WR Pharoh Cooper with 117th pick in NFL draft

The Rams selected South Carolina wide receiver Pharoh Cooper in the fourth round with the 117th pick in the NFL draft.

The Rams had the 113th pick but traded it to the Chicago Bears for the 117th and 206th picks.

"Honestly, I was expecting to get a call earlier [Friday] but it didn't pan out," Cooper said during a conference call with reporters. "God has plan and this is where I’m supposed to be.  I’m excited to be a part of the Rams organization."

Cooper, 5-feet-11 and 203 pounds, had 66 catches for 973 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He also rushed for one touchdown and passed for another.
