    Los Angeles Rams: S John Johnson III

    1. John Johnson III can line up at both safety positions, possessing the physical tools to excel closer to the box or in deep coverage. He matched 11 pass breakups from his rookie campaign and added four interceptions last year. The 23-year-old also ranked second on the Los Angeles Rams in solo tackles (82).

      Johnson knows what he brings to the field extends beyond the average NFL safety. According to The Athletic's Vincent Bonsignore, he's aiming for a Pro Bowl invite.

      "I think I deserve it. That's the only problem," Johnson said. "If I thought I was reaching for it, that would be one thing. But I'm right there, so I really want to accomplish it."

      Johnson isn't cocky; he's aware of his top-notch coverage skills. The Los Angeles defensive back ranks second in pass breakups (22) among players at his position over the last two years.

      If Johnson maintains his steady play in the secondary, he'll move from Pro-Bowl snub to undeniable standout for multiple seasons.
      __________________________________________
      The standards were players on their first contract, not yet a pro-bowler. So even though he's already sort of a star, Johnson is still eligible.

    He is becoming one of my favorite Rams. I believe he didn't have a single penalty against him last year.

    What's ironic is when JJ gets the Pro Bowl nod he's gonna have to not go. Because the Rams will be tuning up for the Super Bowl. :D

    One of my favorite Rams. JJ3 has done nothing but kick butt since he got on the field. Great tackler with a nose for the ball, I'm glad he's finally getting some ink.
    Funny thing about winning, your good players who aren't household names, get the chance to become one.
