AARON DONALD’S NFL CAREER (SO FAR!) The St. Louis Rams thought highly enough of Aaron Donald to select him with their second of two picks in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Donald came out of college, the University of Pittsburgh, as a highly touted edge rusher and run stopper. While at Pittsburgh, he earned all-conference honors three out of the four years he played for the Panthers football team. Donald was also named a consensus All-American in his senior year and Player of the Year for the Atlantic Coast Conference. Donald impressed scouts at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine with his speed, agility, and technique. He possessed decent but not great size for an NFL player at 6 feet, 1 inch (1.85 m) tall and 285 pounds (129.27 kg). Donald’s lack of height was a concern for many teams. A great performance at the combine validated the work of Ram scouts and led the team to select Donald with the 13th pick in the draft.
