    2012 Rams Fourth Round Pick (#96): Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest

    Another weapon for Sam Bradford, one that many projected as a possible second round pick.

    I am actually liking the fact the Rams are taking chances with off the field issue players. Shows confidence.

    LOVE this pick. I've been a fan of Givens for a while, and I think the Rams made the right call to get multiple WRs for Bradford. He and Quick will take some pressure off each other to immediately come in and be THE GUY.

    Still need an OG and OLB, but those positions can be filled in Round 5/6 (and don't be shocked to see the Rams try to move up to grab a player if they can).

    Can't be happier with what is going on. I'm guessing Givens will fill the santonio role in Schottys offense.

    Well we wanted two starting outside wide outs, and I think we got em.

    Happiest draft I've had in a while!

    Tweet reactions...

    St. Louis Rams ‏ @STLouisRams
    With the 96th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Rams select WR Chris Givens of Wake Forest. Speedy receiver had 1,330 rec. yards last year.

    NFLDraftScout.com ‏ @DraftScout
    4. (96) Rams, WR Chris Givens: One of few highly-rated WRs w/excellent straight-line speed, big-play ability highly valued #NFLDraft

    Jim Thomas ‏ @jthom1
    Rams select Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest. Five of their first six picks were players who paid pre-draft visits to Rams Park.

    Evan Silva ‏ @evansilva
    #Rams were thought to be considering Chris Givens as early as 2nd round. Clearly had high grade on him. Stuck to board. Good-looking pick.

    NFL Draft Bible ‏ @NFLDraftBible
    #Rams Rd.No.96 WR - Chris Givens, Wake Forest, JR, 5111, 198, 4.40. Good value pick here. Better than Brian Quick? Possibly.

    Jason La Canfora ‏ @JasonLaCanfora
    Rams take another WR, Chris Givens. If the guys they're taking with red flags stay out of trouble, this could be a big, big draft for them

    St. Louis Rams ‏ @STLouisRams
    Givens another player who visited Rams Park pre-draft. Clocked a 4.39 40-yard dash at the Combine.

    Chris Steuber ‏ @ChrisSteuber
    Good value for #Rams with the selection of #WakeForest WR Chris Givens. Explosive player; fits the dome enviro well. My 83rd rated player.

    Solid, solid pick. Finally a speedy guy with some straight line speed. Another weapon for Bradford, and someone to start across Danny Amendola and Brian Quick. Best route runner in the draft!

    Bradford has to be smiling knowing he has some young playmakers coming in with the selections of Quick, Pead and Randle.

    I love it. I love the fact that Coach Fisher listened to Av last night during their call and went with Av's guy! We havent had a guy that can stretch the field since the last time avery was healthy (quite a while). I trust that coach fisher has done his own diligence on what others consider character issues, and in addition to filling an obvious need, this appears to be a real value pick.

    Can't get it all in one draft. Guard, outside linebacker and of course, drew butler, punter, georgia in round 7.

    Ramming speed to all

    Bradford should be a bit happier today

    According to NFL.com he was projected to be a late 1st round pick. I love all these steals the Rams have been drafting.
