I think he'd be a fine fit here. If Reshad Jones is no longer available, Johnson would be a terrific pick. The discrepancy between the two isn't much, but Jones is a much heavier hitter and a fantastic wrap-up tackler.
That's not to say that Johnson is a bad tackler -- he's good as well, but not quite on Jones' level. Johnson can also hit pretty well too, but again, not quite to Jones' level.
Jones' also possesses a higher ceiling, more upside. Those things, of course, could have him selected well before our 3rd if a team really wants to make that jump.
Very solid player, but more of a FS, so would require a position change by Goldson (to SS) in order to fit Johnson in. Does the club really want to move a promising player to another position to fit in a rookie? Unlikely, except for a Round 1 talent like Crabtree.
Bottom line: fine player, but maybe not the best fit for the Niners' roster.
