RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Once a second-round pick, Joyner finally began to live up to his pedigree having racked up 72 tackles, six passes defensed and two sacks in 2015. At press time, he appears to have secured the Rams' No. 2 cornerback job and could be a sneaky IDP pick opposite the likes of Trumaine Johnson.
Joyner was originally projected at safety heading into 2014, but due to an injury bug ended up playing more at cornerback. A groin injury cut his season short, as he had amassed 22 tackles in the three games before being injured. He should see a lot of time as the nickel back this season, especially because E.J. Gaines is out for the year.
The Rams are high on Joyner after selecting him in the second round out of Florida State. He is a quick, albeit undersized, defensive back and could compete for playing time at corner and/or safety.
