Third-round pick John Johnson said he "knew there was a shot" the Rams would draft him, "but I wouldn't say they were on me hot." How does he see himself? "I think I fit best as a safety, although I think I have a corner body type. I came into Boston College as a corner. I like covering man-to-man, and I like covering zone."

The Rams got their DB. It's John Johnson, a safety out of Boston College, taken with the 91st overall pick to complete Day 2. Both of the Rams' safeties (Maurice Alexander and Lamarcus Joyner, transitioning from slot corner) are unrestricted free agents next offseason. So is their main backup (Cody Davis). Johnson is deemed to have good athleticism and ball skills. 6 feet, 208 pounds.
