USC safety T.J. McDonald was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the third round of the NFL draft with the 71st overall pick.

McDonald, the son of former All-Pro safety Tim McDonald, was the second USC player drafted. The Buffalo Bills selected receiver Robert Woods in the second round with the 41st pick.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound McDonald intercepted two passes and led the Trojans with 112 tackles last season.
