Trumaine Johnson Will Visit Atlanta

Reports say Montana cornerback Trumaine Johnson will visit the Falcons, among other teams in the coming weeks. He's projected as a Round 2 pick, so Atlanta would have to use the No. 55 overall selection to acquire him.

At 6'2", 204 lbs. Johnson is an athletic, physical defensive back who probably isn't as well known as some other prospects due to where he went to school. Montana certainly isn't a slouch in the FCS, but they don't play against the top competition in the nation very often.

The toughest opponent he faced while playing for the Grizzlies was Tennessee. Montana traveled to Knoxville in the first week of the 2011 season and lost 42-16. Other than that Johnson mainly saw the likes of Big Sky teams.

The biggest knock on him is basically the fact that he played at a lower level. He stays right with receivers, makes good reads and is a strong tackler as well. Johnson was named an FCS All-American twice in his four years at UM.

I don't think there's much to question as far as his abilities go, but do the Falcons really need to use their first pick on a DB? If he falls to Round 3, I will be stunned. Johnson is rated as one of the top defensive backs heading to the pros this year.

Atlanta already has two guys from Montana in Kroy Biermann and Shann Schillinger. There are currently nine Grizzlies in the NFL, but Johnson will probably be the best out of everyone from that school.

We've already filled our Griz quota for the year, and with Grimes back there's not exactly a pressing issue for another corner. I don't see a need to draft Johnson. If they were going to take a corner, I'd rather see Brandon Boykin land here. That's just my perspective, though. What do you guys think of Johnson?
