2. John Johnson

John Johnson could follow Brandon Staley over to the LA Chargers

Brandon Staley is jumping from one Los Angeles team to the other and he could bring some players with him. Young free safety John Johnson is a free agent this offseason and while Leonard Floyd is the bigger potential name from the Rams, Johnson would be a very solid pickup as well.

Johnson could be an option if the team is okay moving on from Rayshawn Jenkins and wants to bring in a different young safety that has been part of a winning culture. Johnson is a more of a traditional free safety, which is more ideal if Derwin James is healthy.

MUST-READ: Mock draft with the Chargers trading down to 24

The Chargers could look to split snaps between Johnson and Nasir Adderley at the free safety position. While I was a massive fan of Adderley as he was coming into the league, the fact of the matter is that he has not been good and needs help.

Johnson had the best season of his career once Staley took over and the arrow is only pointing up for the former Boston College safety.

Johnson came into the Rams right when Sean McVay took over and instilled a winning culture, so he knows what it is like to be part of something special and can help bring that culture over with Staley.
