2012 NFL Draft Results: Rams Take Trumaine Johnson At No. 65

With the No. 65 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have selected CB Trumaine Johnson out of Montana.

The St. Louis Rams have been having a productive draft, from both a quantity and quality standpoint. They traded back twice in the first round, ultimately selecting defensive tackle Michael Brockers out of LSU, and then had three second-round picks to work with. In the end, St. Louis selected Brian Quick, WR out of Appalachian State, Janoris Jenkins, CB out of North Alabama and Isaiah Pead, RB out of Cincinnati in the second round.

With their third-round pick, the Rams take Trumaine Johnson, who is a first-round talent who fell, much like new teammate Janoris Jenkins, due to character reasons. However, Johnson is an incredible athlete with tremendous length and serious ball skills. If both he and Janoris Jenkins live up to their first-round ability, the Rams may soon have one of the league's finest cornerback tandems.
