Draft Scout John Johnson News
01/10/18 - S John Johnson took over the starting role early in his rookie season and turned out to be a revelation while amassing 75 tackles and solidifying the back end of the defense in run and pass support.
10/11/17 - S John Johnson, a rookie, played well enough in his first career start on Sunday that it looks like he'll remain the starter along with Lamarcus Joyner. That also means former starter Maurice Alexander is out of a job as the club released him on Monday. Rams head coach Sean McVay said Johnson and Joyner will be interchangeable in their roles.
"The way that our coaches do it is they train those guys to play both free (safety) and underneath and we've got some different calls and things like that, that dictate whatever it is, whether it's a two-safety or single-safety defense - who is an underneath defender, who is a middle safety," McVay said. "And John did a nice job specifically as a post player yesterday. But, you look at the interception he made, he's an underneath flat player. So, I think with those safeties, they're interchangeable in terms of being able to play deep and then underneath in some of those run support structures."
10/09/17 - S John Johnson, a rookie, got his first start of the season on Sunday replacing Maurice Alexander and came up with an interception and two important pass defenses.
With Alexander getting released on Monday, Johnson appears to be the new starting safety.

He needs to improve his route recognition but won't make many mistakes, and he has the movement skills to be trusted as the last line of defense. The NFL is looking for heady players who can cover ground, and Johnson fits that mold. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
