2012 NFL Draft Results: Montana CB Trumaine Johnson

Johnson is 6 feet 2 and 204 pounds, making him part of the bigger cornerbacks we're seeing in the league these days. According to Mocking the Draft, Johnson needs experience in press coverage and that he is built more like a safety.

Johnson had 15 career interceptions with the Grizzlies and clocked in with a 4.61 40-yard dash time at the Combine in February. While some teams might have been scared off by his off-field issues just a bit, the Rams are certainly looking for better things out of him.

Based on true talent, Johnson likely could have gone much higher than he did.
