Cornerback was one of the bigger needs beyond tight end after Prince Amukamara was released after the season. The Bears have Tre Roberson they signed out of the Canadian Football League and former undrafted free agent Kevin Toliver as options to fill the spot. But after the drafting of the 6-foot, 193-pound cornerback should be an immediate starter. He played his final year at Utah with a torn labrum and was a 2nd-Team All-American despite the injury.
The Utes were one of the best defenses in the nation last year and Johnson brings incredible length and the ability to handle long, tall, physical receivers in the NFL. The Bears come out of the second round feeling pretty good with the players they got. They are first-round caliber prospects who represent great value at No. 50.
