With the 91st overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Los Angeles Rams have picked Boston College S John Johnson.

Here's how the major draft sites ranked him:

Mocking the Draft: N/A S, N/A overall
ESPN: 10th S, 97th overall
CBS Sports: 7th FS, 128th overall

Here’s what our Boston College site, BC Interruption, had to say about Johnson in a scouting profile:

Not seen by scouts as a physical safety, Johnson however is a talented defensive back who has the knack to find the ball and make a big play (as we saw in his game ending interception against Wake Forest this season). Scouts are concerned about his tackling, as he isn’t a hard hitter and seems to be more reactive than forceful when it comes to putting on a hit. Johnson will be popular with NFL teams as well as he has shown real talent on special teams, collecting over 30 tackles in the past two years.
