ST. LOUIS (AP) _ The St. Louis Rams have signed seventh-round draft pick Keith Jackson junior to a three-year contract.

Jackson is a 6-foot, 315-pound defensive tackle from Arkansas and the son of former Oklahoma All-American and NFL Pro Bowl tight end Keith Jackson senior.

Jackson junior was a seventh-round draft pick and is the third 2007 draft choice to sign with the Rams.

He was an Associated Press all-Southeastern Conference selection last season after registering 79 tackles, 2.5 sacks and two interceptions for the Razorbacks. He returned one of the interceptions 69 yards for a touchdown against Southeast Missouri.
