Rams add Alabama CB Marquis Johnson with the first pick of the seventh round

The St. Louis Rams picked Alabama DB Marquis Johnson with their first of three seventh round picks. It's the second DB the Rams have selected during the 2010 NFL Draft.

Johnson was BAMA's nickel back during their 2009 championship run. Starting for Javier Arenas against South Carolina this year, Johnson broke up six passes, three in the end zone, as Spurrier's offense kept targeting him. 

He's a character guy by all accounts. 

The six pass breakups were a school record. Not bad for the third CB. Be sure to read to read that article because it talks about how Bama's corners play.

This is a nice pick.
