St Louis selected USF DE George Selvie with the 19th pick in the seventh round, the 226th overall pick of the Draft.

The former University of South Florida defensive end and the Bulls only two-time All-American emerged on the scene as a freshman and then exploded as sophomore when he had 31.5 tackles for a loss and 14.5 sacks. In 2009 he finished second on the team with 9.5 tackles for loss and third with 3.5 sacks, and also forced a fumble and recovered one.

Selvie was a semi-finalist for every major national defensive award, and is the NCAA active career leader in tackles for loss and among the top five in sacks. Finished his career with 69.5 tackles for loss, and was just 5.5 shy of tying the NCAA career record, 29 career sacks, 227 tackles, 32 quarterback hurries and five fumble recoveries during his time at USF

Selvie was USF's second defensive linemen drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft, joining teammate Jason Pierre-Paul, who was chosen with the 15th overall pick by the New York Giants on Thursday. Selvie's selection added to the record total number of Draft picks for USF in 2010, including safety Nate Allen in the second round, cornerback Jerome Murphy in the third, and wide receiver Carlton Mitchell in the sixth round.
