However, if they did go after Johnson, new defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus would be getting a big, physical corner to build the rest of the secondary around. Additionally, this pick could also be flipped for more selections in the draft if the opportunity presents itself.
They were granted a sixth-round compensatory pick Friday for allowing quarterback Nick Foles to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason, and are expected to get additional choices from the Rams.
