ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — The Rams wrap up the second day of the 2012 NFL Draft by taking their second cornerback, and perhaps getting the most talented from the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision in Trumaine Johnson out of the University of Montana.  Now with new players Cortland Finnegan, Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson, the Rams bring in a new litter of defensive backs that will surely replace and compete with a 2011 unit that struggled to remain healthy.

At about 6-2, 204 lbs., Johnson could play the corner position for the Rams, but his skill set could translate to the free safety position.  The newest Rams defensive back was open to the idea of switching positions if necessary, but head coach Jeff Fisher told reporters that he will join the team as a cornerback for now.  Revered for his tackling skills, that are comparable to that of a linebacker, plus his height that makes him as tall as most receivers.
