Mr. Irrelevant Agrees to Terms
David Vobora

Posted Jul 22, 2008


The Rams have agreed to terms with the second of two linebackers taken in the seventh round, who was also the last pick in the draft.

The St. Louis Rams have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with 2008 seventh-round draft choice LB David Vobora, the team announced today.

Vobora, 6-1, 238, from the University of Idaho, was selected with the 252nd overall choice, the final selection in the NFL Draft. Known as Mr. Irrelevant, the name given to the final selection of the NFL Draft, Vobora was the second of two seventh-round selections by the Rams.

Vobora earned first team All-Western Athletic Conference honors as a senior in 2007 after posting 148 tackles and 1.0 sack. The 148 tackles ranked third in the NCAA and were the fourth-highest single-season total in WAC history.

Vobora joins first-round choice Chris Long, third-round choice John Greco, fourth-round choice Keenan Burton, fifth-round choice Roy Schuening and seventh-round choice Chris Chamberlain as having signed or agreed to terms.

Donnie Avery (2) and Justin King (4A) are unsigned.
